    I got a bad feeling all the locals hereabouts were dirt poor in that time period. That, or it was a barter system of payments. A bushel of turnips don't detect well after 120 years.

    Wonderful! I was so caught up in the other gold coin posted here recently that I almost overlooked your post! Glad I opened it up! The question now is, what do you do for an encore?

    Super finds Professor. Doesn't get better than that.

    I run a DFX,too. I've found some good stuff, but nothing like gold, and two in the same hole, almost.
    Just goes to show that it's not so much the machine, but the site you're hunting.

    I realized after a group hunt last week, that a whole bunch of finding the good stuff is luck.

    OMG...I have seen a ton of gold on the forums this week!

    Great finds!!!!!!!

    I think it would be helpful if we all gave more details, such as signal and depth, etc.

    Re: I Bow to the DFX God

    Hi Folks,

    Thanks for looking at the post. It is probably the only time I'll be able to post something like this and I really did want to share. Not to brag because so much of this type find is pure luck, but to keep the spark alive that these type finds are still possible and can happen with no warning. It is not for the true weak of heart though. Probably good as a treadmill test. As far as my health, I think my ticker is still in pretty good shape.

    To answer some of the questions, I'll do the best I can. Some of it is foggy. Kinda overloaded by little brain (I used it up while I was still a professor). We all know that gold is not the easiest thing to find. It is not only scarce but unless you have a gold type machine, the signal comes back as iron or something else. I don't even think I have an icon on the DFX for gold. Anyway, I got a signal right by the front porch steps. Strong but kinda odd sounding. Since my other detector is a "dig it all" machine I'm pretty well trained, I said oh what the heck. I'll dig it too. Centered the signal as best I could and dug. It was in the first scoop. Picked it up and brushed it off and it was gold colored between the crud. I couldn't see any detail so I wasn't sure if it was gold or some sort of brass charm off a bracelet. As I covered the hole (I always cover even the really small ones), I looked next to the hole and there was another coin on top of the ground. It was covered in a brown "gunk" and I though it was another Lincoln penny. Flipped it up with the trowel and it was shiny gold underneath. That maked me look at the first coin a little closer. And there she was -Lady Liberty - in all her glory. Honestly, it took about 30 minutes for the find to sink in. It was hard to listen to the signals anymore. All I could think of was finding out what type coins they were. I spent until 3am carefully removing the crud in boiling water with some detergent. Couldn't sleep anyway.

    What do I do for an encore. I don't know. Dig 1000 more pop tops and keep going I guess. I know I will probably never find any more gold. Much less 2 at a time and have them in such good shape. What surprises me is that I don't have gold fever. I am just as excited today knowing that most (if not all) the stuff I dig will be crap. I just want to do more. Gold or no gold.

    I would trade my DFX but I am afraid this one has found all the gold it may ever find. You should keep yours if you haven't punched its "Gold Find" ticket. You are due and I am done.

    Mankto State is still alive and well. I just don't get to go there and play anymore.

    Thanks again for looking and the kind comments. I was lucky. Your day will come. You just don't know when.

    The only way to really understand something is to play with it.
