    My Greastest Find EVER!!!

    Found this little coin right before sun down tonight. Found a 1903 IH toasted pretty bad around 2:30 today.
    Left the park around 3 and picked up my daughter from school. After dinner I got to thinking about that IH and where I found it and decided to go back and just take another look see.....
    Well low and behold 2 feet from that hole I get a repeatable tone and TDI.

    And the reward is this little beauty.
    Probably never top this but I'll sure will be out there trying................

    My passion is for hunting relic sites, as I feel the imprint of past lives often lingers there!
    Detectorists finds, are the background noise of antiquity!
    Don't question it ... just dig it!

    Banner! Really sharp looking. I have a 1904 $5 gold that looks the same but I didn't find it; it has been handed down in the family since it was new.

    Anytime you can find gold, it's a BANNER find! Congrats. There must be additional goodies at that site, keep looking.

    Very nice gold. How about a rinsed off picture with better color and detail. It will get a lot more attention that way. Banner!
