    I think you deserve anther banner. That is a good looking coin regardless of it being gold.

    Keep us posted on who you settle with the owner and if your comfortable what you settle with him and if the antiquities had to get involved. Thanks for sharing.

    Wow Cru!! That's what all of us colonial hunters strive to find, and only a small select group are able to make that happen. Congrats on one of the most obvious banner finds ever. And it looks like you're on a roll with snake buckles too.

    BOOK ANNOUNCEMENT:

    I am anticipating that my new book entitled "DISCOVERING VIRGINIA'S COLONIAL ARTIFACTS - A Comprehensive Guide to Recovery, Identification and Preservation" will be available sometime during the early Fall 2017. This hardcover volume, nearly 400 pages in length, will double as both a "how-to" manual as well as a colonial artifact "encyclopedia" to help ID and date your finds. This publication will be a valuable resource not just for the colonial enthusiast, but for all metal detecting hobbyists as it covers topics such as research, permission, how to read and search sites, trash pits, artifact cleaning, preservation, documentation and display, ethics, and much more. It will also contain nearly 1000 color photos of 16th, 17th and 18th century artifacts I have personally recovered over the last 20+ years along with many quality post-colonial finds that randomly turn up at early sites. Updates will be provided as we get closer to the release date.

    **BOOK IS NOW COMPLETE AND IS BEING MADE READY FOR THE PRINTER. HOPE TO HAVE IT IN MY HANDS BEFORE THE END OF SEPT IF ALL GOES WELL. (Last updated 8-16-17)

    Thanks.
    Yes, you pretty much got it. Our deal is that I (the finder) has first refusal on any find but finds of this nature the owner gets half its value minus any likely costs if I were to sell, which of course I don't. If it's not a gold coin which I alway keep, & its too expensive for us to give half the value then it goes up for sale-50/50 after costs.
    If in the very unlikely case I find another identical one, then he gets first refusal. In the case that they are not interested in the money & we get an indentical one, then they get it for free.

    Single Gold coins are not included in the Treasure Act & its mine if thats the agreement with the Landowner.

    UPDATE:

    Just read an email from Cru'Dad & he rang the owner to tell him of the find as per our agreement when finding anything significant. He agreed we could keep it & took our offer of the money. It is now Legally mine.

    THANKS FOR THE BANNER!
