    1853 $1 GOLD!! Holed, Scratchy, Slightly Bent But I'll Take It!

    Hey all,

    after 30+ yrs detecting now - dug my 2nd Gold coin in the last 9 yrs

    Went back to my trusty Brothel site that I've been working since last fall tonight for a 2 hr hunt. Was checking on a few other sites out that way to see if I could get into any of them but they're not ready yet so I opted for the backup and boy am I glad I did!

    Last time out I used the CTX 3030 when I found the Seated dime and 1865 Indian head

    this time was the Deus's turn

    found in a mix of machine gun iron - was reading like complete junk (#s jumpin from 29 to 36) and sounded like tin crap but being where I was = "dig"!!
    (you can tell it was punched with a nail or the like - not "drilled")

    Also worth mention:

    1867 Injun in VF/XF cond. (full Liberty and nice)
    1865 cruddy 2 cent piece
    Huge Rimfire cartridge of some type - looks like whatever lead was in it could take down a buffalo!
    Found Abe Lincoln too

    Pictures tell the rest of the story... (Enjoy) and thanks for reading/lookin

    Congrats on the incredible finds! I'd gladly dig a bunch of junk for the keepers you landed! Also congrats on your SECOND gold coin- 23 years plus at this and no gold coins yet for me.. Can't wait to see your third!
