    Return to Coin Spill site... Hunting bud finds UNBELIEVABLE GOLD coin






    Hey guys, it had been a couple weeks since I found the coin spill with the six silvers. I went back 2 days after the first 6 and found an additional 1842-O dime. Well, the next day I talked the landowner into plowing six plots in the field for me, including the spill site.

    Fast forward to today.... Mike Scott and Gene Scullion from Fisher Metal Detectors came into town to hunt with me and my hunting buddy Coach Croft.

    Five minutes after we get out of the truck I hear Coach yell "HOLY #$%@, A GOLD COIN" So the three of us run over to see this coin, and FOLKS it is BEAUTIFUL.

    Its an 1841-C $2.5 gold coin.. The C mintmark really threw me for a loop so I looked it up on my phone. Minted at the CHARLOTTE, NC mint..

    10,200 mintage

    He also found the 1827 capped bust dime and 1853 quarter from the same small 20 foot circle. All in all we had a great day between the four of us, but Coach kicked our butts. We found several eagle buttons, and other CW relics but no other coins.

    Thanks for looking and congrats Coach!!

    - Jeff

    What a day for Coach!! I'm sure he's eternally grateful for you giving him the opportunity to make an awesome find like that. Kudos to you for being a stand-up guy and sharing your site. Maybe there's a chance you guys missed some. Bring in a GPX and give it one last try. Good luck!!

    I must disagree... umrgolf has been a real SEATED kind of guy lately

    Without saying, the gold is awsome! You guys are really digging it up lately!
