    FOUND A GOLD COIN

    My 1st "true" gold coin find in 20+ yrs of metal detecting!!

    I went back to the "Curb side find- Georgian revival house" this eve. for about 45 minutes (couldn't make it last night) and after hunting the front area again with little to show for it, decided to try the side of the house where an old small brick walk leads to a back side door of the house.

    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!

    ITS THE HOLY GRAIL OF DETECTING!!!!
    ? ? ? ? Lone--You have reached the summit after 20yrs now sit back and enjoy!!! I'm fired-up just lookin at a Gold coin that just hours ago rested in the ground!! That must been somethin, see'in shiny gold against that dark soil...I can only guess, I haven't got there yet. But your post is the next best thing!!! It'll probably be hard gettin stoked over large cents and the like after this one. Maybe this is just the first in a long line of EAGLES ready to land in your nest,, EH?? WHATA FIND--you da man-- envious of you..resurector

    Great job. And I spent all day detecting on the stupid beach. At least I worked on my tan.
    We're proud of you.
