Buried silver cache found


April 13, 2019 01:44am


I got a call from Richard explaining that his great grandpa had buried a stash of silver coins on his property 60-70 years ago and that prior to his recent passing had shared this with his daughter, Richards’s grandmother. Who wouldn’t want to hunt for buried treasure? We arranged a day for me to come out and I and grandma walked the property and I got set up to begin the hunt. I didn’t know how the coins were buried in terms of containers so I quickly realized I was going to be looking for good solid tones regardless of their ID#.

Сайн байна уу ? Миний нэрийг Батболд гэдэг Баянхогор аймагт амьдардаг.Би EQUINOX 800 металл болон алт элрүүлэгчийн Монголд хамгийн анхны хэрэглэгч юм. Энэхүү хүрэл зэвсгийн үеийн олдворыг EQUINOX 800 аар олсон хамгийн анхны олдвор бөгөөд Миний хувьд маш их үнэ цэнтэй олдвор юм. Энэхүү хүрэл зэвсгийн үеийн олдвор нь Монгол нутагт хүрлийн үйлдвэрлэл НТӨ III мянганаас эхэлсэн байна. I үед өргөн дэлгэрч НТӨ I мянганы эх хүртэл үргэлжилжээ. Хүрэл эдлэлд зэс 90% болон цагаан тугалга 10% ордог байна. Хүрлийг хайлж цутгаж эдлэл хийдэг байжээ. My name is Batbold, in Bayankhongor province. I am EQUINOX 800, the first user in Mongolia, a metal and gold protector. This bronze weapon is the earliest finds of EQUINOX 800 and is a great find for  ...
