    Have you ever dreamed of finding buried treasure? If you were at a house that was built in 1850 and one coin (either silver, gold or copper) was lost every 5 years in the yard, how many coins would be in the yard waiting to be found?

    What other treasures are waiting for you?

    I am very much interested in people succeeding in this hobby so if you have any questions or suggestions please feel free to contact me.
