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

    Thanks Troyounce,good to have you aboard! It'll be 4 years since I found it in exactly one week from today.Wow how time flies by.I'm surprised every time I get a post reply since it's been so long but it's good to see that people are still reading about my best day ever so far.Hope you enjoyed it.
    I finally broke down and had it authenticated graded and slabbed. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it graded. I figured it would come back "damaged"as it has a little bend to it but the details came back AU 55 so I'm happy.I found it in the wheel rut of what would have been an old horse & buggy trail back in the 1850's when the fair was established. I have always had the vision in my head of a buggy running it over with a steel hooped wooden wheel squishing it into the ground.
    Anyway, I figured I'd update this post and put in the pics of it so here they are. Thanks for reading and keep the coil to the soil folks. Most of all do your research and put yourselves in the old spots.

    Thanks Mainedigger good to hear from you! As always I'm giving it my best shot to give this thing a mate so it won't look so lonely.Hopefully this time a big $20 so I'll have an example of biggest and smallest.

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

    Thanks BSTimely and NJ THer, It's nice to see people are still reading about this and I'm very proud of these finds. Still my best day ever! I've been down with a back injury so haven't been able to do much but on the other hand I've had a lot of time for research so when I am back up and swinging I should get some goodies,that is if someone elses research has not already led them to my prospects. Thanks again,

    Thanks Silver Spoon, she is quite a beauty and man what a day that was! I had nobody with me when I found it and just kinda looked around for someone to tell. I went straight to my dads and held out my hand and said you'll never guess what I found,then I plopped it in his hand,needless to say he was astonished and really happy for me. Thanks again, Bootstrap
