Thread: It took 20 years, but I finally found a gold coin. Well, 4 gold coins. All French!

    It's an epic find. The circumstances don't change that at all, and if the choice was given to find it that way or not at all, I'm pretty sure we'd all take it.

    Congrats on your gold coin. I would rather find it in that condition than not at all. The video truly showed the despair of the condition of your coin. It was a find of a life time.

    Forest Gump said that "it happens" and he was right. however, you could have found it already broken that way and you still would have been happy to have found a gold coin, I know that I would be ecstatic. Totally awesome find no matter what plus you have all the parts. I would love to find just a portion of a gold coin. Congrats on all accounts

    I found my first gold coin last Friday. Nothing like yours but just the same a gold coin. I truly feel your pain! Still, a gold coin is a gold coin and not many of us will ever get to experience such a find. Congratulations and welcome to the gold coin club!

    This was still an amazing find Brad. It is easy to say "don't beat yourself up" from our standpoint BUT really.
    This is a find of a lifetime. You have all 4 pieces and a story.
    I was just amazed when I saw the video. Garrett honorable mention if you ask me.

    Awesome coin, sorry about the hit, hopefully 3rd epic find won't be a repeat. The guys need to pitch in and get you a custom made digger for your bday, something to keep your best finds from meeting a grim fate. I've made a rough design, maybe they can get one made at a tooling shop. Just point the handle at where you think the target is and dig that plug without fear.
