    GOLD FINDING REPORTS

    now im not pointing any fingers, or calling anyone liars, but i just wanted to comment, thats its VERY ironic that right after someone posts a topic about finding gold in rolls, and if it has ever happened, and suddenly there are multiple reports of people finding gold. very weird. Keep it up and hh! [R.I.P. Rich Hartford]

    Re: GOLD FINDING REPORTS

    Maybe its a COINcidence Look at the coincidence with the 1955 post about nobody finding it and then it pops up that somebody found one in MS 60 condition? "now im not pointing any fingers, or calling anyone liars" Well one of the posts I think about gold was this ----> http://forum.treasurenet.com/index.p...,418484.0.html but it wasn't a coin. Maybe the guy did find the coin maybe he didn't, If he really needs to do that to feel good about himself then I would just ignore it, but if he posts a genuine picture, it will all be good

    It maybe possible....

    Recent story of one of those Salvation Army ringing the bell workers, that found a gold coin in their red donation thing. If unoticed could be deposited back in circulation....

    Odds of finding one...

    I keep a list in my head of all the people that have made a nice find and posted pics. From then on, pic or not, I tend to trust them. Those without pictures...probably B.S.

    Also agreed. Anyone with less than 25 posts talking about a crazy good find without a pic, is also probably bogus.

    First, I am not saying anyone in particular has posted false finds.

    But, the idea that a posted photo means claims are true is not logical. Let's say I have a collection of Barber halves. I could post saying I found for example, a certain number of rolls of Barbers in CWR (you could substitute Barber for Mercs, Franklins, etc).

    I then gather the coins from my collection and form stacks and take the picture. Thus, all posting a photo does is prove the poster most likely owns such coins, it doesn't mean they really found them CRHing.

    There have been cases discovered though were posters lied about their finds. To me it is pretty sad that someone would feel the need to bolster their ego by lying about what they found CRHing.

    The same thing can be seen on metal detecting boards, bottle digging, etc. Pick any forum dealing with treasures so to speak and they will be there. Even people that travel the country looking of old cars to restore have their questionable posts. There will always be a number of folks that post fictitious finds. What do they gain? Beats me. Forums evolve over time into popularity contests. They always do and always will. I get frustrated with metal detecting forums because there never is any serious discussion. It's all just a bunch of clad finds being posted that a blind squirrel could find. I have yet to find a metal detecting forum that hasn't evolved into that. The reason I rarely post on any forum I am a member on is because I don't need a pat on the back for reassurance. If I find something I want to share, I post it. But I don't post for the "dig me" factor. Call me cynical. If someone wants to post finds that are highly questionable, there really isn't much that can be done about it.

    Re: GOLD FINDING REPORTS

    ah - guys I ask the poster for pictures. take every post with a grain of salt- and enjoy what pictures people post...I know that human nature is everyone just wants to feel important. so it's all good. I also enjoy seeing the stacks of halves people find on here, real or not it helps me in my dream of finding them. (again that's not all bad!)
