    In 1999 I found a 1919s Walking Liberty in EF 45(appox.$500-$700)--its the finest silver i've dug.The old racetrack had been scraped down to the yellow clay, and I think thats what perserved it.I still own it.
    Then in 2001 dug a 1909s VDB lincoln cent ay a old homesite in Eureka Cal. Must have went into the ground AU, cause besides the porosity and some rim loss it grades V. Good with EF details-Sold it to my gardener for $350--I'm still lookin for the Pacific Gold Company $10 gold--i'll let you know when I find it!!

    Well it's not one that I found but one I traded for.I got an 1893-o Morgan dollar from a friend's son.He wanted my collection of foreign paper money(which I gave about a buck for through the mail).I had no idea about its worth until some yrs later.Only 300,000 were minted.

    Re: What's the most valuable coin YOU'VE ever discovered?

    It's a Bar Cent (or "bar copper" as some call it),? 1785 is the date it 1st appeared in the US

    It is said that it was minted in England for use in the 13 colonies during the period.

    They are very very scarce.

    There are also "copies" out there, they were made in the civil war era by J.A. Bolen, and are worth approx. $50

    Mine was an original (as seen by the spur/burr sticking out of the 2nd bar on the reverse on the right end of it).

    Only the originals have this spur-- also, copies have the A in "USA" crossing under the S instead of over it as mine/originals do.

    There are also "other copies" out there that are/were more like the originals made by who knows who but are easy to spot if you know what to look for. They are worthless (other than souvenir value).

    YOu might have a double die, but more than likely you have whats called "machine doubling". Machine doubling errors are not really worth much at all. I would seriously consider you getting the coins(s) graded by a respected company if you really think you have a true double die. That way you know what what you really have. Good luck!

    Thats hard to believe, even a gold stater in perfect condition doesnt sell for more than 5-6000$ at auction, what metal was yours?
