Maybe somebody should head back to the property with a good metal detector?

I found all that silver years ago, no sense in looking for it.
Spent half of it on women and booze, wasted the other half.
Thought we were talking about collecting singleshots, not coins.
Here's a nice coin site for you:

Most metal detectors work great to about 10-12" down. Most intentionally buried stuff is deeper than that.

Well I'd certainly give it a try if I knew it was there for sure! Nothing to lose.
Could even strike a deal with the current property owners to split halves with them if they let you dig for the lost treasure of grandpa's silver coins! Maybe they'll even allow a dozer to take the top 12" off the soil first! Smiley
And to stay on topic.....could find out what neat old singleshots could be purchased for with collectible silver coins!

Detecting a property like that is a metal detectors dream even if you dont find anything. Under trees, at the base if corner fence posts etc etc really have produced buried treasure. I have had friends find parts of old single shots before too !

An optional larger search coil will go a lot deeper, especially on a can full of silver!

Always wanted a reason to buy a metal detector! Where's that property? I got a good flashlight, and a shovel already!

Already spent that money, Vall.
Wasn't hidden very well, large sign over site, "dig here"
Not like Oak Island.
