HUGE CACHE OF SILVER COINS FOUND WHILE METAL DETECTING- LIVE OPENING

*READ DESCRIPTION*

THE CONTAINER IS A 1930s PIGGY BANK

Background Story:

So heres the story, I went metal detecting since my other plans for the day got cancelled.

Hour 1: nothing (when I say nothing, I mean some clad and junk)
Hour 2: nothing
End of hour 3: … things got interesting

I saw an old tree, started detecting and my signals spiked. I dug out an old lead figure, no paint on it, about the size a melon. Thought nothing of it at first since ive found lead figures and toys both big and small in the past so I put it in my bag, finished detecting around the tree with no luck, went to my car and drove home because by that point my hands had turned bright red from the cold.

I get to the garage, I have shelves for smalls (and where I unload my gear) and was about to put the figure up on one of them. Then I noticed some dirt spilled out, I see that on the side it has a small hole, most lead figures even small ones are hollow. I decided to take it home to rinse it out through that small hole (let it fill up with water, then let it drain out). After the first cleaning I noticed that it was still heavy and that no dirt was coming out of it anymore, heavier than it should be. I let it dry and took a look in the hole. I noticed that there was something shining inside. I looked on the back and to my surprise I noticed a slit on the neck of the figure which turned out is a piggy bank. I look in the hole again with a magnifying glass and noticed that there were a few ribbed coins with white sides, that looked like silver dimes.

Grabbed the camera, and by that time my dad was home, he filmed, I opened and the result was… well see for yourself…

The official count is at the end of the video.

ALL SILVER, NO CLAD!!! Another good thing, after i pried open the iron cap at the bottom, it was still salvageable, and the piggy bank is still whole and usable! I plan on repainting it over the summer along with another one I found a year ago that was empty and will make a video on those as well.

THE NEWEST COIN THAT I CAN SEE IS 1952.

My Gear: Whites DFX 300
No pinpointer (dont need it)
Shovel
JVC Everio Camcorder

  36. kevin hoffman says:

    Thanks for finding my piggy bank ! what a great find , I enjoyed the video , it would appear the critics are everywhere

  37. Michael Crockett says:

    boring video, you could have just dumped them all at once. you put me to sleep counting each one. btw that bank looks like aunt jemima, popular in the 1930’s. have to give you a thumbs down, sorry.

  38. linda laureano says:

    this kid is good with numbers

  39. Kenny Howell says:

    Good video, Thank You for making it. I would like to know what was the most recent date on any of the coins? That would give you an idea of how long they might of been in there.

  40. Bonnie McDaniel says:

    THROW THAT THING IN SOME WATER AND LET THEM SOAK OUT FOR HEAVEN”S SAKE.

  41. BLUESTAR KING says:

    that coin holder is prop worth more then coins ..

  42. Flash Gordon says:

    before you mess it up and ruin the bank by painting it… take it to an antiques dealer or two, get an estimated value of it, as is. it may be very rare and very valuable

  43. BLUESTAR KING says:

    i hope you didnt paint the coin collector ….if so your silly.

  44. Bonnie Porthouse says:

    Congratulations & thanks for filming your find. You mentioned painting the bank. Most antique dealers will tell that found condition is best in terms of value. Painting would ruin its patina of age that people like.

  45. Versael says:

    Hey, that isnt the worst recording, your sink "is" pretty nice :>

  46. cathy14cs says:

    So many negative comments…well I enjoyed watching it. I could imagine the excitement you mustve felt when opening it and wanting to share the excitement on video. I wonder if the poor kid who lost it is still alive and somehow gets to see this. Was the tree where you found it by a house or maybe a backyard. Thanks for sharing

  47. Mary Logan says:

    Wow aunt jamama think that’s how u spell it lol great find.

  48. Jody says:
