    I finally struck GOLD ! 1861 GOLD !

    Today was the day... A little over 6 years ago an ex-coworker brought a handful of relics into work with him. That day after seeing them I knew I wanted to try this hobby out. So the first chance we had he took me out digging and I have not stopped since. It was on that first day out that I mentioned to said co-worker that I would love to find a gold coin. As I recall after he had a good chuckle he said "good luck". Well here I am 6 + years later and to him I say thanks for my first time out digging and thanks for wishing me that "good luck". A gold coin was at the top of my wish list. Check that one off. I did manage to find some more relics too. A nice Mass staff cuff button, pocket watch key, kepi buckle, 3 ringer, button back, j hook, buck n ball, and a brass mystery item. Sort of looks like a part of a trigger guard. Thanks for looking and good luck digging.
