I realize that's a weak excuse (if the mod's used that as criteria). But in the attempt to keep the banner SUPER exclusive, there can be a lot of seemingly picky points and seeming mere-whim, as to what makes it.
    In my eyes it makes it a much rarer find it being French, a french military button might make banner, a gold Indian where there were millions made can make banner? Sometimes around here it feels like a cliche? I'm not one to start any trouble, but..........

    Hmmm, I entered an 1829 British gold coin , that was found at an emigrant stage stop here on the west coast. It didn't make banner. It was several years ago, so I could maybe find that post.

    I found it :

    1829 British Gold Sovereign found

    There's an example of a foreign gold that didn't make banner. Not sure if the fact of being foreign was a factor in that or not. I also had a USA gold coin once on today's find, that also didn't make banner.

    11th Gold coin found. Grade please.

    So while it's true that most gold coins will make banner, yet: It's not a given.

    Well since you bring it up, IMHO I’d rather see a French gold coin than the usual US gold but I digress....

    This thread is about Bartek’s gold coin and how incredible and rare a find it is. Can’t remember ever seeing one on Tnet

    I think it's blasphemy this is not yet banner.
    I know I am gonna piss a lot of people off. I know it is a USA-based forum and all my respects to the US hunters.
    But here I know fields where I can pull out 50 musket balls an hour from the 1600's or 1700's and I saw banners with 1 rev. war James shell, or some civil war militaria get banner, which, of course they deserve.
    But this is a truly rare find.
    Man, my last hunt in Germany before winter I pulled 6 silver coins from a field. All coins 1700's or earlier. For me that doesnt deserve banner, cuz here it is pretty common.
    But that gold coin is really unique. Also saw this Vince guy with a hammered gold coin thats 1500 years old. I know it was shattered but hey, thats a once in a lifetime find.
    I think those unique gold finds should deserve banner.
    My 2 cents. Or (euro-cents XD)

    I think the banner is still coming for this at some point. Just got to be patient. No offence to anyone but moaning about it not being there may actually do more harm than good. Best just to keep commenting in how great it is everyone once in awhile if anything. Weather it makes it up or not its a dream find to pretty much anyone on here regardless so if it was me id be in heaven finding that banner or not!
