    1851 Gold Coin! And few others from a Bramble hunt.

    Me and Charlie (eastcoastHunter21) took advantage of 60 degree weather and decided to head into our hunted out spot (thick bramble). We have been pulling old coins and relics at this location for over a year.

    Since this spot was hit hard I decided to run my dues at 17mhz and see if some smaller targets were missed.

    My first digable target was an 1883 Indian, right in the middle of a path.

    Then the path disappeared and the overgrowth became thick. It took some crawling and few thorns but we made it through to an open area

    Few mins later I found a largie shaped button. I think it’s an LC converted to a button. I see a “1” of “1/100” at bottom and an “s” of “states”

    Maybe half hour later, Charlie starts calling me over “dude I think I have a Gold coin”!!! I rush over and we carefully wash it in water and a French 1940 2 franc appears (unfortunately not Gold)

    Then we start crawling and fighting the bramble once again to get near our parking spot.

    Seeing the car I was accepting the days results, but I always try to swing till the last moment. Swinging some more, I get a nickel sounding pop and decide to dig in... I see a gold rim, and start screaming to Charlie “dude, I think it’s gold!” He rushes over and I grab my phone and begin recording:

    Happy Hunting tNet!

    Amazing find Bart. Another elusive gold coin dug, I'd still be shaking and sporting the biggest grin (perma-smile) if I dug that, cloud nine material. I sure hope you two are wetting your whistle to celebrate the day. I'm voting Banner.

    Great work Bartek! I know a lot of people that wont dig those signals. And they are missing out for sure! Any idea why youre finding so many (only 2) french coins in northern nj?

    Thanks, this was NY site, we cleared a lot of great signals over the year. Took out tons of scrap and garbage too. Things reveal themselves once the area is clear, that’s my philosophy.
