    Last hunt of 2010 produces a gold coin... or gold jewelery?

    My last keeper for 2010 was my best one so far. It sounded like a small piece of aluminum foil (12-7 with an E-trac) and was less than an inch deep. Why I even bothered to push the dirt with my boot I'll never know? I am sure glad I did though because it turned out to be a one dollar gold love token!!

    I think the hole and the design really add to the find though. I mean a gold coin is an awesome thing for sure but the history behind something like this really gets me wondering...

    Who made it? It was obviously hand made and took some time.
    Who was it made for? I'm guessing a gift to some young lady but perhaps a present to a mother?
    When was it made?
    How did it get lost? Did it fall off a necklace / bracelet... or did some angry lover throw it?
    etc?

    As far as finds go I am much happier getting this than say if it was a gold dollar alone. Well, at least that is my feeling anyway. No matter how you look at it, pretty cool I think!! Thanks for looking!
