    whats crazy too is the amount of work they did. Digging races through rock to set up sluices, building cabins selling them moving often. so, much work not actually digging for gold.

    Prospecting
    I drive 2 days 15 hours each. just to get there . spend 1 day setting up and getting ready. 1 or so days digging before I even start running material. I feel tired before I even start seeing gold. Then after a couple weeks of super hard work I gotta undo the whole process. and i am not getting any younger that's for sure.
    But they did it on foot by hand. i get flustered when i cant get a good radio station in and thank goodness for air conditioning. lol

    Great coin, gold and story!!

    Really the holy grail when gold searching, you get the gold the coin the whole thing processed and time stamped.

    Looks to be in terrific shape for out of the roaring American.

    Kinda like going to the dentist nowa days with insurance. Dr. takes a look says emm 2 bad crowns our other office did for you plus 2 cavities and potentially 1 more crown comes out to $5300 patient cost for a few hours in the dentist chair.

    What a scam, just like selling water to the miners, if you need it they jack the prices.
