Treasure Hoard Found!

#1 Unread post by Daniel » Mon Mar 13, 2017 8:58 pm

Jim McAlister was cleaning out an old shed in December of 2016, on his property, when he found a weathered box half buried in the dirt. He found rusted nails and tools and an deteriorated saddle bag. Inside the saddle bags were around 100 silver dollars. The dates range from 1878 to 1903 an condition is EF to AU.

Mr. McAlister was a former member of the Palm Beach Coin Club and had moved to Peidmont, Alabama a few years ago. He bought the land with the shed to settle down on and got a early Christmas present.
