    New Colonial Sites Lead to my First GOLD coin!!!!

    Got out with The Patriot today to try some new spots in an area with some age and potential. Lots of pottery and broken glass showing up but for the most part finds were bits and bobs and scrap brass and lead. Then out popped this, an 1800 1/3 Guinea gold coin! I was honestly in shock, I NEVER expected I'd find a gold coin, and a 213 year old one at that. I don't think Patriot could believe it either! It was my only coin for the day, and after we tried three new sites that should have had lots more goodies we tried an old beat site and I came up with some musketballs and a bale seal. All in all, with the great weather, some free sausages and taters from a nice farmer, good company and a gold coin, it was one of my best days detecting yet!

    You are right.... I was in disbelief when you said I think I found a gold coin...Your voice was calm and almost doubtful! Even when I saw it at first I didn't believe it...almost looked like a tarnished silver coin...but looking at it longer you could certainly tell it was gold! I think I was more excited than you...I won't post my finds, a few colonial coppers, musket balls, bale seal, buttons and buckles... I knew I was finished when I saw a little guy that resembled this fella walking the field...

    A big congrats and that's a banner in my books!!!

    Thanks man! Haha, I don't think I believed it myself, didn't want to get too excited and it turn out to not be gold. I was sure shaking though!! Now can't wait to get out again!
