Thread: GOLD COIN...BOOYEAH!!!!

    GOLD COIN...BOOYEAH!!!!

    It only took 8 years but this afternoon I found my first gold coin. I had a friend down to detect some "old faithful" areas as the "good" sites are still not available. This is the same friend who found the 2 cannonballs on my site the last time he was here to detect...same site too! The day started pretty slow and I was somewhat disappointed that the sites I had been hoping for were not available. I did have the backup plan and we executed that. Phil started with a couple coppers and I with a button and a musket ramrod thimble. Phil called me over to pinpoint a target in his hole and when I was walking away I got a nice solid signal. It was pinpointing about four inches down so I cut a nice wide plug. I flipped it over and just about freaked out! There was some profanity involved when I saw the distinct gleam of gold on the plug! I grabbed a couple insitu shots and id'd it as a Victorian 1870 Sovereign! Some knuckle head in the past soldered a loop on it to wear on a chain which was his downfall and my fortune!

    If the elevator tries to bring you down, go crazy, punch a higher floor!

    Exactly, no loop, no coin, its a blessing. CONGRATS on your first, may it open the flood gates........

    How do you find Gold coins? Reply: 'By finding lots of Silver ones..'

    You gotta love it when "Old Faithful" gives you your first gold coin! I am on year six with a metal detector and the only gold of any kind came this summer in the shape of a wedding band. As CRUSADER said above. I hope this opens the flood gates for you
