    Unbelievable! One of the best U.S. coins I have ever seen dug. It grades XF at a bare minimum (going by details). Insta-Banner!

    echoplex, since we found this site, we've been having fun trying to make video captures of the action. Different things like camera mounted on a ball-cap (sort of like a go-pro in effect). So that it's not just the starting audio signal, but also the dig, the pinpoint, the reveal, etc....

    But sometimes, after digging a bunch of bullet shells (so they're destined to the "delete" file), we don't capture every dig we wish we had. And since a $5 gold reads right around certain bullet shell TIDs, Brian had elected not to do a starting narration on that particular dig. Thought it was just going to be another bullet shell. But once he saw the reeded edge, he turned on the camera. So it's the full reveal process .

    Some of the other signals shown on video are fairly representative of what his gold coin probably started like, insofar as audio goes. Like that rivot signal he got live: That, as you know, perfectly mimics a copper cent or half dime or whatever.
    Metal detecting is my one worldy vice!

    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.
    For the most part I've always enjoyed detecting with you, this day was a long time coming, but it finally came! Ironically, as I mentioned to you on the hunt, there was a dig hole on the other side of the sagebrush the coin was next to Of course it could've been anyones, but ironic nonetheless.

    I'm probably the wrong person to be commenting on the way videos are made and why somethings stand out. So I'm just wondering why does it take 20+ times going over the same target looking at the screen(or not)before actually digging? I not be patient enough to watch this continuous beep-beep-beep-beeping over & over again achieving what really, it taking away from the actual excitement of the retrieval.

    Just my thoughts on that one. Great target, Great recovery, once in a lifetime find -Congrats once again.
