I Believe it!

Look how many coins are waiting to be found below old sidewalks, and streets. Those areas can be a gold mine, or a silver mine of coins.

longing for large cents
by: Anonymous

when they put in I-95 in center city Philadelphia they excavated what used to be a canal between the wharves and Front street. You didn't even need a detector you could find large cents just laying on the surface.
Then the started finding canons,well that's when the fence when up and the party was over. They used to use large cents as shims in colonial house construction.The canal became such a cesspool the the city had it filled in during the late 1700's. And that's where they excavated to put in 95.
