    Re: FOUND A GOLD COIN

    Thanks again everyone, I'm still looking for the next one!

    Am going to be doing an 1800s Stage Coach Stop that was a saloon & hotel that has never seen the likes of a detector (according to the current owner, and it been in the same family for the past 50+ yrs bought from the original family that had it over a 100 yrs), their doing a restoration on it, and I'll be starting this weekend,

    will keep you posted as it starts & progresses, it's going to be a good one!

    Thats what it's all about, thats why we dig the holes. Man you must be on Cloud nine, I can't imagine how you feel. I get excited over a Mercury dime. If I dug a Gold Coin, there would be a S--T eating grin on my face for Months.
    Great find and a Hefty congratulations.

    Re: FOUND A GOLD COIN

    Very Nice. At first I was very jealous. But after reading that you have done thousands of sites and thousands of miles I feel you earned it. It's hard to imagine someone "loosing" a gold coin however I have a short story for you.
    My grandparents were strong Catholics and were always invloved in church activities and at church. Well my uncle said they had a gold coin in church the one day and as they were just "hanging out" my younger uncle put the coin in a "slot" in one of the church doors. It fell down somewhere either in the wall or part of the door. He believes the coin was never recovered. Anyway, things happen and stuff is lost. We find it Very happy for you.

    Re: FOUND A GOLD COIN

    Let me add my WOW to this long list of them. Congrats to you. I can't even imagine the feeling you had at that time. I'm not sure what I would do other than wearinga sh** eating grin for days afterward. Congrats and find another one!!

    Hey LW, Every time I look at your "goldie", I feel like that flying insect in the "A Bugs Life" movie when he stares trance-like into the bugzapper light and says "It's BEYOOOOOOOOOTEEFULL!" right before being drawn into it and vaporized. Glad for you dude!

    I was walking/swinging the coil, and after about 3/4ths of the way to the door, I got a solid mid-level tone- strong in the gold/nickel area of my GTI 2500,

    dug down about 4 or 5 inches and I couldn't believe my eyes!!
    I about had a heart attack rgt then and there!

    You can see the green corrosion on it from being in the ground for so long, and it's not more than a VF/XF grade at best BUT, "it's a gold coin just the same"!!

    I'm so fired up that I wanna go back and hunt all night but thought I'd run home and post this 1st!
    wow what a nice find . i have allways wanted to find any kind of gold coin. i would even settle for my first silver dollar. i have found a old gold ring but to find a gold coin. may you find another.good luck

    Badger & Free (Pete),
    yeah, I was complaining about not being able to find gold coins these days but hey, there is some truth to that,,, it took me 20+ yrs to find one ("1")!! and I've litterally detected 1000s of places, have driven 10s of 1000s of miles looking for places to detect to find one! and wouldn't you know it, 2 houses from me, in an old vacant house/yard, I find one!!!!?

    So I guess my complaining about not finding one is done now! Guess I'll have to find something else to complain about so I can find whatever that may be! lol

    Anyway,,, thanks for all the praise everyone, and may you all find your due gold coin/s too!

    P.S.

    remember,

    the road to gold- is paved with pull tabs!

    HH

    Lonewolfe

    P.P.S.

    I'll be cleaning the coin later today, and will post it in the Best finds section, and in the Picture Gallery.
