Didn't feel like traveling due to gas prices so I stayed close to home. Glad I did!! I hit a mini-cache!

I decided to hit a park with a good-sized picnic area. I first hunted a large field and found a rosey and a 1912 Barber. I continued to hit this area for a few hours but I didn't find much else. I then decided to try up on this hillside...I imagined people sitting up on this hill possibly eating their lunch or just to get away from the crowd below. I first stumbled onto a few wheaties (not shown) but they are dated 1909, 1911 and a couple from the 1940's and 50's. Then next target I was thinking it was a silver dime due to the nice, smooth high tone that was produced. When I unearthed the coin it was an 1897 Six Pence! I barely moved my coil BAM!, Moved it again, BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM!.. lol what the heck? all those "BAM's" were the large Chinese Ten Cash coins and date to the early 1900's. Wow this is one heck of a mini-cache! All were very shallow too. 1-2" in depth. Not too far away I found rosey, merc and a well-worn Draped Bust Large Cent!

That is an amazing group of finds Jim.. now you just need to figure out how all those coins ended up there! :unsure:
You know I can't allow you to count that one coin as silver though.... :razz:

But…but it’s 92.5% silver 😩😩😩
😂🤣😂
How those coins got there is one great mystery. I’m gonna go back and see if I can find more mysteries 🤭

nice haul…obviously left by the coin ferry…. I’ve had a very similar experience on a beach one time which I still refer to as “foreign coin beach”..
