    Excellent Book!

    Posted by Aaron Beimborn on 29th Apr 2021

    I would definitely recommend the book Lost and Found Coin Hoards and Treasures because it includes many stories and is a great read. This book is a good long read that is engaging, it portrays many different treasures hidden and found over a long period of time. There are many interesting finds in Lost and Found Coin Hoards and Treasures from shipwrecks to coins buried in the garden. One part that I personally like is a section where they include treasures that haven’t been found yet. It really gives you hope in knowing that there may be a treasure buried in your backyard. As for the type of hoards found there is pretty much everything from colonials to gold dollars and much more. Numismatists study coins as well as collect them and this book helps you do just that, it teaches history and what the coin may have gone through. Overall, this book includes good information over a variety of topics centered around coin hoards and treasures, I definitely recommend it and it is definitely worth the money.
