    Me & a 2-LB Nugget

    At this weekend's GPAA/LDMA Vein Mountain outing, I had a chance to catch up with William Wilcox, the Nugget Man. He's quite a character, and I enjoyed swapping stories and lies with him. As many of you know, Will found a nugget while detecting in CA that weighs just under 24 troy ounces or 2 troy pounds. He was kind enough to let me hold this beauty and pose for a picture with it. It sure was a great feeling...

    Well, it depends on you, I to would save it until (/if) I need the money.. Then POSSIBLY sell.
    When finding gold it can get a sort of sedimentary value..
    You know like old family possessions.
    Geologists are gneiss, tuff, and a little wacke.

    Hey.. those size nuggets don't come around to often. Bye the way he may be fortunate and not need the money. I'd keep it , and sell the small stuff under one ounce. Way to go.....geeee by the looks of that nugget and the 9 pounder they found in Neveda city the other week, the oold timers missed some.

    its hard to find a buyer for a piece that size..... also more than likely a guy who finds a piece that size and its not pure luck has found and sold/traded lots more and has lots more to sale......and lots of people who found a piece that big might not ever tell you they even have it....the fever hits everyone different.......ive sold a fair amount and havent found a piece ive been sentimental for...really im sentimental for the act of researchin and findin it and hope the price stays this high for a while.

    According to his book, it is one of the 1400 largest known nuggets. You are right, gold value is $40k, but the specimen value as a single nugget of that size is roughly $80,000! (according to appraisal, not me )

    Re: Me & a 2-LB Nugget

    I have some gold I found in the 50's and inherited some from the 40's. Always keep the biggest and best as a hedge against the falling dollar. Gold I found at $50-$300 an oz is now worth over $1,200 soooooooooo that beats my bonds and cds all to death as an investment. Anyplace on the planet you have instant cash and I do mean CASH with no strings attached-John

    You seem to be doing ok in that Mythical Lost Alabama High Ground Groove you're working.
    But I know what you mean - It's wonderful to dream of finding that much all in one lump, instead of a picker or flake at a time.
    Keep diggin'!

    That is great but if S*** hit the fan you would want nuggets of smaller size for trading and buying food, ammo and TP. So I would probable trade it in for smaller pieces of gold.
