    That is a beautiful Dahlonega mint Gold Coin. The Dahlonega Mint was built to coin gold from the numerous productive gold mines in Dahlonega, the site of America's first Major gold rush.
    Dahlonega is located in the North Georgia mountains and today is a little over an hour North of Atlanta. Gold was discovered and Dahlonega was established in 1829 and remain America's Gold Headquarters until the 1849 Gold rush of California. There are still active gold mines in Dahlonega producing gold today. The Mint was built less than 10 years after the discovery of Dahlonega Gold and produced gold coins from Dahlonbega gold until the outbreak of the Civil War. The confederates took possestion of the Mint, but it never minted another coin. Now the mint serves as an administrative building called Price Memorial Hall at North Georgia University topped with a Gold steeple made from an untold amount of Dahlonega Gold. it still sits just two blocks from the center of town and the old Central Courthouse built in 1829 that now houses the Dahlonega Gold Museum

    Find details: That year started to do sidewalks and house tear ups as my major detecting focus. I had only a short time left in the detecting season, I needed 4 coins (keepers) to reach 68 to double the previous years total. It was November 29th the day before my birthday. Ground was frozen for days, it melted enough to go. I hit a couple of sites and only had 13 cents modern. I went to the site that a house was torn down. I had gotten 4 Indian Heads from it before. Oldest 1860, no silver at all. They had shaved down 8-10 inches of the yard. But they had also done the location of the new driveway. The day they did that they parked the bobcat on the spot. Day in question it was gone. It was dim light, I scanned the location and got a screwcap signal. So i popped up some dirt and there it was. I figured it was the top of a beer bottle (college kids had lived there). I picked it up then realized it was a gold coin. In the dim light i could make out the date, and all the detail. I put it in my pocket, just then a little old lady walks by and asks find anything? I told her as i pulled it out, just a five dollar gold piece. I do not know what she thought. I thought it was Denver for about 2 hrs. till i realized Denver did not exist then.

    Have you even read this post? I read the full post. It is a lie. I will call bs if I see it. The poster changed his name three times, and was curious about how many views the post had. Along with his bad grammar and other bs facts is a dead give away.

    Was it addressed to you? Maybe you should mind your own biz. If you read the post you will see the truth, and that I am not the only one who has enough of a brain to call him out.

    Good observations. I dont know why the OP changes his name so much. More than 3 times. Mostly just for attention and self promotion. He also liked to play games.

    He pretended to be a woman at one time and posted a hot avatar. He/she loved all the attention from the male members but the truth surfaced eventually. A real character for sure, rubbed a lot of people the wrong way but also helped a lot of people when the site first started I am told. But for what its worth, I think he/she really found the coin.

    That's interesting, the part that made me most suspicious was comments about how many views the post got compared to some unrelated story on a different website. Along with the fact that the coin just happened to be one of the most rare and coveted.

    It's not the first, and won't be the last.
