    Got the letter,W+E says "Your in Bootstrap"!!!

    Hey everyone,Got an email last month from Steve of W+E Treasures magazine requesting the story and pics of my gold coin found last May.He said they wanted to include it in the Best Finds issue to be released in April 2008.Well I opened my mailbox yesterday and there was the letter confirming that it had indeed been included and also inviting me to write some more articles for them! Needless to say I was pumped!!! I guess they're also gonna send me a gold leaf bordered certificate for framing and a copy of the issue as soon as it's published!!! Yee haa!!!
    For any of you that didn't see the original post I'll include a couple pics and if you would like to read the post just expand your banner section and click on the California one dollar gold coin or go to The Best of T'Net and click on "Old fairground yields big silver and tiny gold".Thanks for reading and best of luck to all in '08!!!!!!

    Bootstrap,

    That is Super News. Congrats on getting a story published in Western & Eastern. You should be very proud. If I was closer, I'd buy you a drink.

    Bootstrap, that is great news, well done. I hope and pray that you will have many more stories for them. I see your coin is nearly the same year as my gold coin that I found last year (40 YEARS OUT).....

    Congrats, Bootstrap. That's one beautiful coin and a fantastic find. One that I have yet to find, though I've purchased a couple of them for my gold collection. WTG

    Thanks Bob,The coins you've purchased,have they got the initials DERI on them or are they of the plain variety?The reason I ask is that I've been unable to find any of this variety for sale.I've been watching ebay since I found it but none have came up and the last auction record I can find is april 2006 and that sold for $1610.00 but it was in MS condition. Thanks again Bootstrap
