    Gold coin find

    Here is my best so far, anybody ever find one from this mint?

    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.

    Hey man

    What part of the country did you find that in? I have a coin very similar to that, I put it in front of my coil and it sounded off really good, as a mater of fact I turned my disc level up to 5,(Bandito IIUmax) and it still sounded off good. Thats a great find by the way

    Wisconsin?!?!?! That's clearly a Denver mint mark. Send it to me and I'll make it feel at home! CO2
