    first gold coin

    Hi all
    I went down my block today looking between the the road and the sidewalk. Old photo's show a dirt street with horses tied to hitching posts.I hoped someone back then had dropped a silver coin, I didn't find any silver but i did get this sweet 1915 $5 gold coin. I got a penny reading on the m6 and dug a 1898 indian. when i rescaned the hole i got a reading in the bottle cap territory, what the heck i was already there so i dug it, and out popped the gold. i think everyone on the block has seen it now and they told me i could hunt there yards as well. so all in all a perfect day. also got 9q-7d-13 pennies and 2 wheats. it took about 30 years but now i have mine.


    Thanks all for the banner vote. never thought i'd be there

    Wow that is an epic find!! I was talking with a fellow treasure hunter last night about wishing we could find a gold coin. Good to see they are there for the finding. Bottle caps are such good finds.

    And I believe that is the one of the rarer coins that is so often recopied by the metal platers whose ads try to make you think it is a real gold coin.....until you read the really tiny print saying it is clad. EXCELLENT!! (wringing hands). Banner! Monty

    Re: first gold coin

    great coin there...congrats on your first one! Wonder what mine will be?
    My philosophy is: It's none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am and do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier.
