    Congratulations. We all dream about finding something as nice as your coin.

    That is an incredible find, and one that has been at the top of my most wanted list for years. I hope you realize how rare and special that find is. I've been exclusively hunting colonial sites for 15+ years, and although I've dug about 150 silver coins from the pre-1800 period I've never gotten that goldie, and probably never will. So my hat is off to you for a superb find, and one that I'm certainly going to vote as banner. WTG!!!

    Absolutely stunning. Maybe I've missed it, I don't recall ever seeing such an old gold coin found in the states. You've found something special there, and have no doubt found a banner coin. Congrats!

    I have about as many years, and then you start to add in everyone you know who hasn't found one, and all their years, and that's a lot of old targets and no gold coin. If I do ever find one I suspect it will not be that early....but I guess beggars shouldn't be choosers!

    I do understand the rarity and significance, I'm still amazed! It's made up for the colonial silver drought I've been on and makes me want to track down even more new sites.
