    Found the kids "treasure chest"

    A few years back my kids buried a cigar box of coins in the back yard. They couldn't remember the exact spot, but said it was near the pool. I searched the area previously with no luck, but the new M6 found it. It was buried about 14 inches and the box was totally disintergrated. In with the coins they buried was a 1937 wheaty!Click image for larger version.
