    CALL 9-1-1

    So....I decided to go for a short play
    in the mud. No expectations, just getting
    my "fix".

    But, If I have to go through heart attacks
    just to fix, then maybe it's time to resign.

    Anyway, I managed to find a good combination.
    A bit of high ground that wasn't so muddy and
    was fairly easy to dig.

    After cleaning up a few pulltabs I flipped back
    a plug and saw this:

    Now, for brevity's sake, I *KNOW* enough to not
    even flinch just cuz the there's something gold
    coloured in the hole. I guess this one did take
    me by surprise though and I did jump and then
    laid back, re-gathering my wits and the realization
    that, more than likely, it was not. Recovered my
    wits and then sat up and finished the hole.

    All in all, not too terrible a walk.
    By the way, that's a whole wheat toast and
    TWO Indian Head cents. One's a 1901.

    And lots of shiny for Blingie.
    By the way, that's the very first fountain pen
    I ever dug. It was down a good 9 inches too! Looks
    pretty good for what it's been through.

    Thanks for peeking!

    Blingie likes it, that's all that matters. I had a cow digging back in the day in SC, this huge GOLD thing jumps out of the hole. A great early gold plated early button with all the gold on it.

    It happens. I even pulled out a gold gilt flat button before that gave me a heart attack. Great finds nonetheless!

    Looks like you had a good day. South Carolina must be the place to have a heart attack Smokeythecat, I lived in Sumter for 10 years. I dug a round, thick GOLD roundness. When I first saw it down in the hole, I'm pretty sure I had blood vessels pop somewhere in my head. After I got it out of the hole, it was a plastic gold poker chip. Some kids must have buried it in the sand playing pirates. I'm not a doctor but I thing doctors call it suckItis.(suck-I-tis) That feeling you get when you go from WOOOOHOOO to WTF in 10 seconds.

    Great stuff! I had that same feeling with a... I think it was a 2 euro coin? It's gold colored and it was small enough that I thought I hit the jackpot. Needless to say, I still don't have a gold coin to my name that I haven't purchased.

    Well you got your cardio workout in for the day.

    I know that "euro" feeling, my heart rate wildly ramping up while part of my brain was asking "why would a gold coin be in a school yard?".
    Its happy, happy....uh...oooo, swan dive into disappointment.

    There is something not right about issuing common coins in a gold color, its just not right.
    Even a warning sticker won't help.

    The fountain pen is quite a find now days, nice!

    Fishy is a happy camper with his bling. I'm guessing Blingie will be carting off the offending "gold" coin as his treasure.

    Glad your playing in the mud went well.
    The temps are rising, a good sign for us.
