Smile Todays find Pesky VDI 92

I found this "cache" 24 inches from the macadam walkway sixty feet from the lake in my dug hole 6 X 6 by 3 to 7 inches deep. In the dirt folks in the dirt. Got one of those pesky VDI 92 $$$ sign on the New DFX300 with my Eclipse 950 coil as recommended by the guys on this site use the 9.5 coils. First time out with the new combo and a Home Run! Who's your Daddy??? YES!! and Shock haven't felt my heart on my chest in awhile. I got the clad here there and everywhere else along the way today. The button is Brass and very heavy. I figure the Cache is from 1971 the latest coins are (4) four Ike dollars dated 1971. What do you think? Here in beautiful downtown NJ. Mykie.

That stinks! Still awesome though. You can call me illegitimate squat.

Look if you're going to post finds of this magnitude you need details to back it up. You just walked along some macadamian nut and dug into it and found a bunch of coins? Was it public property? I mean seriously, no details at all. It's painful. We just want to enjoy your experience with you. We want to know what you were thinking as each coin passed through your hands. What kind of history the land has, things like that.
