    Thanks everyone,I don't know how many of you read my post"eight rings and two pendants in twelve feet" but if you did you may remember that I found them on a beach all within a couple feet of each other and they all had penticles on them.At the time I figured it was some kind of ritual some group had performed on the beach and was hoping it wasn't some kind of curse they were performing.Some of you replied and said it may be good luck well I think the latter was true.I'm having my best year ever 46 silver pieces so far including a seated liberty half,my first ever, and 13 silver rings 3 silver pendants 1 gold ring 1 gold pendant and my first gold piece,YEE-HA!! Thanks for reading, Bootstrap

    Re: Old fairground yields big silver and tiny gold!!Two firsts. Updated!!

    Thanks old dog,Steve,Dang,Baldingboy,Lil' Finder,T'Hunter and Mcsancho,I wish you all the best of luck! I've finally,I think, positively ID'd this gold coin.It appears to be an 1853 california 1 dollar gold coin,Deriburpie was the engraver,thus the DERI on the reverse.As best as I can tell it is of the BG-523 variety. BG-519,BG-522,BG-524 are all close but different and I can find no examples of BG-520 or BG-521 so it is possible it could be one of them but the BG-523 is very close if not exactly like mine.Did a little more research and found out that the total NGC and PCGS population of this variety in all grades is only thirty coins so it is quite rare.I also found out that the last one sold at advertised auction was sold in april of this year and was in MS-62 and sold for $1610.00 so I'm thinking mines worth 6-800 dollars in it's condition.I'm sending it to get it slabbed and graded so I'll know for sure that it is the variety I think it is.Who knows,if it comes back as a BG-520 or 521 it could be worth far more but I think it's a 523,we'll see!How's this balding boy?Arghhh, Good luck ta ye,and thanks for reading me post mates, Bootstrap
