Look No Farther: A Farthing and a Shilling

By: Tim B.


I was searching around a wooded marsh area that has numerous old stone walls. I saw a large boulder and decided to search around it. Had a solid mid-high 80's signal on my Simplex+. About 9-10 down, 4 in apart in same hole I found these beauties. 1694 William and Mary copper Farthing and 1696 William III silver shilling. Mind blowing!
