$5 Gold and old pocket spill
Now rewind 3 month ago on a Thursday evening I had to drive to CB to stop by my College and hand in some paperwork for finiacial aid. After talking and bsing with College rep for about a hour. I headed to my favorite park thats not to far from the College grounds. Well after pooking around a few hours and about to give up do to time and the wife calling where your at. I took a gamble and the next signal I heard a just dig it. Well It was well worth it, and yes I did the dance also and a few words, I scored a $ 5.00 Gold 1903-S. Now this is the same area I found that 1877 IH penny awhile back. I bet your wonder why it took me so long to post this. Here's the reason, It was in my lock box and either I or my other half missplaced to key and after cleaning the house today I found it. So now I can post it with out you guys wondering where's the pic.
Now today I played in early morning from 0900-1030 to beat the heat wave thats been hanging around us. I found a old pocket spill of some very old coins in area which I believe was a hang out during the Victorian area. It's not much but I was surprised at the condition of the coins (pics provided). 25c 1858, 1852 3c Silver, 1867 3c Nickel, and a 1869 2C piece. Now since Im in the right area maybe more will show up if we had so rain. HH all and drink water....
