    Sorry for the confusion..I was simply saying those gold rush areas are a good bet to concentrate on if you want to increase your odds of finding a gold coin detecting.

    Lots of them too - not just California.

    I know a guy up here who found 100 double eagles. They asked him how hard it was to find a gold coin, and he said the first one was pretty hard, but the other 99 were easy.

    Just like Texas in 1880.

    Don't you think your chances might be greater if your detecting in an area where gold coins were used in everyday normal transactions..during a period when the mintage numbers skyrocketed compared to earlier years.

    In the US, they have been out of circulation for 86 years..so detecting locations only active between 1934 to present would probably be less productive?

    I wish there WAS a recipe.
    Honestly, they were a "normal" currency - People didnt travel the same as we do now a days, using roads they knew or paths with the most direct route. Anywhere there was a Gold rush, sure, might be a "hot spot" but as many people have found as well... Farmers fields, Under and or beside paths/ walkways in construction or being altered. In the depths of the forests and even the back yards of some homes. They could be anywhere and I stand by the "It has to be dropped for it to be dug" slogan... I dont really think you can increase your odds by any percentage digging or detecting certain or particular areas... They are where they are and that's all. Dig it all to increase your odds.
