    Man, A Gold Coin, Awesome - good for yoU!!! I've been detecting for over a year and have yet to find even a silver - you're story inspires me to keep on looking though!

    Me and my hunting buddy are going back today. Seek out old areas and farm fields where they have been farming for over a hundred years and you'll find the silver.

    I still smile when I think about our battle with corroded silver. But seriously, that is an unbelievable find. Might be hard to top that one. Definately contact Western and Eastern Treasures if you have not done so already.
    Bill, my hats off to you. Congratulations.

    No I haven't contacted the magazine. I figure if they want the story, wouldn't they contact me? Your right, probably a tough one to top; and I won't think about topping it. If it happens it happens. I'm happy just to get out and find some old silver coins and relics.
