    Brian, Congratulations on your first gold coin. The dream hole-in-one for all md'rs. And not *JUST* a gold coin, but a rare one at that !

    The zone of our site where you found that, has been pounded by myself and another hunter so far. We've pulled several seateds, several IH's, and a pesky buffalo nickel from that area. But we all had missed that gold coin. Lucky you ! (ok ok, a bit of skill perhaps too )

    It was a day neither of us will forget. Thanx for making the video and bringing all our friends along for the epic day and epic find.

    Scott9050, thanx for posting that. We too found that link. When looking at those past sale prices, the dates of those past sales should be noted. Because some of those dates are from sales 10 or 20 or more years ago. If you scroll that to the left a bit, you see that the most recent sale was Nov. of this year. And that one was a 30 grade. And sold for $3,335.

    We were on our smart phones , out in the middle of nowhere, toying with these same musings. You can hear me on the background of the video where I'd gone to the PCGS website. From there, figured out how to click on the date of the coin, which brings you to the auction histories. Thanx for posting that.

    Hey Jason, I was hunting about 100 yards away. And I heard Brian yelling something. So I took off my headphone cup and could hear him yelling "gold coin , gold coin". Doing a happy dance , thrusting his victory fists in the air, etc... When he rolled his video camera, was right then. He had only just seen it flop out, yet had not even touched it yet. It was quite an honor to be there for the "reveal".
