    1849 $ 10 gold found

    Wish I could say I found this (I know it can't count towards the banner, unless the finder himself is the thread-author). It was found by a friend of mine a week ago, as 3 of us hunted a site here in CA. This site has turned up at least one other gold coin (an 1846 O $5) in the past, in addition to reales, early seateds, gilt buttons, etc....

    Other finds this night was 2 small phoenix buttons (#14 and #29).

    It's my dream to dig a gold coin of any kind. Odds of it are very slim so every time I see a post where one has been dug it gives me hope and inspiration.

    Thanks for sharing this find!
    LMAO

    Nice find Tom. Not another from the Monterey beach dump site I suppose as there were no recent storms. A footing dig perhaps?

    thanx everyone! Yup, if she could "tell a story", she'd have something to say about those formative years in CA's post-Mexican/early state-hood era, for sure. I mean ....... simply to have arrived here, from where it was minted in philadelphia, is a long voyage, from the days when that would have had to come all the way across the USA on wagon train, or "around the horn" by ship, etc....

    And Calisdad, it was not a beach find. It was a land find. No storms around here beating up those old-coin-beaches you speak of :P

    Don't we all wish that we could find at least one gold coin in our life times!
