The pair are choosing to remain anonymous, Kagin said, in part to avoid a renewed gold rush to their property by modern-day prospectors armed with metal detectors.

Duh!

Also If I were them I don't think I would have fessed up that I FOUND the coins. Then someone or the city could say hey those are mine I own that tree lol.


ETA: I see it was on their property but still someone may say I buried them there 100 years ago lol

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

I suspect there will soon be a dearth of rusty cans a lyin' on the ground.

Why the heck did they tell anyone?

Excuse me, I have about an acre of woods behind my house to ... uh ... take a little walk ...

Some people aren't too bright or don't think through the consequences. Personally, if I came across this and had any clue of even a fraction of the value, I would have coins checked in very small batches (less than 10) by dealers spread out over a very large area so no one dealer knows the extent of what I have. I would then spread them out over many safe-deposit boxes, family safes, and other secure locations. I would only sell them one or two at a time as I needed to.

This of course, is all dependent on if I had any clue what they were worth. I can imagine them thinking they may be worth a few thousand dollars so they take it to a dealer who then leaks the story of 'the find of the century' to the world.
