    Gold Coin!!

    After a long weekend of coaching soccer I managed to get out for a hunt. While walking to the main site I decided to swing through what had always seemed to be a modern trashy area. First signal, gold Victoria head was looking back at me!
    Itís a Newfoundland 2$ gold coin turned into a love token. The condition held up very well being on a salt water beach for about 100 years! As the date is gone, it can be narrowed down to either 1882 or 1888 as it is the ntd3 variety.
    My first gold coin and Iím still shocked where it was found!

    I have no idea when it was lost of course, but the coin itself has to be dated either 1882 or 1888.
