I got a couple hundred pounds of wheatbacks. And over 500lbs of silver but never have time to go through it . Probably just end up selling the silver for melt if a silver rush ever actually happens.....

I would check it if I were you.

Heres an old story from last year, but its generally about these guys who were working on someones house when one of the guys found tons of stashed money and silver certificates in cans worth thousands!!

I have a little metal box with some coins in it. I don't really collect die hard or for money or anything. Like, if I find a neat or old coin, I'll buy it and put it in my box.

I got mine though family also. And either most of the good stuff is gone or never existed. I've pretty much looked it all over, lots of rolls of silver with no real key dates. If siver were to hit $10 face value. Thats a lucrative price given what common circulated coins really sell for.............
