    MD,

    Needless to say, I was shocked when I came up with the gold sovereign, since the most I was hoping for was a large cent. I forget what the number was on the machine, because many times when I'm woods hunting, the good signals can be far and few between, so when I got the real strong penny reading, I got excited and forgot to check the number and quickly proceeded to dig. In an air test the sovereign is reading +47 in the ring pull tab range. Movng it around it did jump up to +50 screwtop.

    Not that I would sell it if it were mine, but approximately how much is it worth besides the value of the gold? How does it compare in value to an American coin of equal or similar aspects? Very nice find as is anything gold these days! Excellent! Monty

    The same coin in a little better condition sold on ebay last month for $447.00; though like you, I would never sell it.

    Bookfisher,

    What a beauty. Great find. When I see that someone has found a gold coin I smile because it proves that they are still out there, waiting to be found, hopefully by me!
