Re: Sinking coins?

Coins can sink, especially when the ground is saturated and the ground becomes fluid, either during flood times or when the frost comes out in the spring. Also the coins are covered by silt and organic materials that fall and decay. Coins lost in perpetually wet areas are deeper than in dry areas. That is based only on my observances over the last 40 years.

Throw a coin in topsoil "mud" and see if it doesn't sink.

Jack, there is a simple answer: 'Coins Don't Sink.' -- Also, a long storied post for ANYONE to read and answer.

How many agree with Ron's conclusions, and do you use a different detector?
