Today I found what I suspect to be the contents of a money box or a cash box of some sort. There was no box as such, but in amongst the coins were what look to be a clasp and a handle. Whatever it was, it produced over 200 decimal coins.
First find of the day was a penny, in the middle of a path. It was sticking up out of the ground and my guess is that it's been like that for decades. I suspect the years of people walking on it is why it's bent. It actually took quite a bit of probing to remove without damaging it, the ground was like concrete.

The Coin Spill
After I hit a few rubbish targets and a key I made my way to the other side of a creek and hit a 1c coin. Then another. Then there were signals everywhere. I stopped using the detector and just used my pinpointer. I was digging in this spot for the best part of an hour,
When I left there were probably still coins in the ground, but it was over 40 degrees C (104F) and I had to bail. I got most of them though.
