    Jackpot, I hit it big this time and I hope Iím not dreaming

    This month has been outstanding for me. I have never in my life been this lucky and just want to say thank you to whoever is looking out for me.

    I went out today for few hours just to kill time. I wasnít expecting much so I was just taking my time digging targets. I digging lots of thrash as usual along with pennies. I was using the 800 and since I wasnít finding much I started just jumping between park 1 and field 1. After a few hours I came across this iffy target that would jump all over the place with negative numbers and hit 20-21 once in a while. Iím like another Penny, I guess I will dig since itís my last target. I dug it and I see this weird coin staring back at me. I grab it and Iím a little confused now cause it sure doesnít look like a Penny at all. After a few seconds go by it finally clicks, OMG this a fracken gold coin. Now Iím shaking And trying to figure out what to do next. After a minute or two I figured I should put it on top of the detector to let it breath and take a picture. Well, here it is and I hope
    this isnít a dream. Thank you for looking and remember to dig everything because you just never know. HH

    This is great stuff there Rasco, what a surprise THAT must have been, what else can I add. Gold Coin. So..... in Park 1? A 20-21 jumping around with some neg. numbers, perhaps on edge? Some iron around it? Who knows really, point is you found a "Gold Coin". Don't know what might be better. Heartfelt congratulations.

    Thatís just awesome. Most pictures I see of detected gold coins are clean and shine like they were dropped yesterday. Yours has a dug look that I think gives it way more character. Congrats!
