    Awesome score! I found one of those years ago,but It was in a bezel. I was told that it ďdidnít count ď as a gold coin because it was jewelry. Yours is the real deal and congrats. Iím putting in a Banner vote.

    Thanks Truth, you know I always have to try to one-up ya. You have been setting the bar higher and higher these days.

    The Po-boy was good. Shared it with the wifey, and still had a little left-over for lunch today.
    And Thank you for the Vote.

    Thank you Buddy. Its not often that I can post something that you east coast guys would get excited over.
    The pics definitely help tell the story. I gave the gold piece a quick wipe to tell what I was looking at in the dark, I do not think I will do any more cleaning to that baby.

    Thank you for the compliment Steve, and I appreciate the vote.

    Thanks for the compliment & info toasted.
    I have been curious/wondering what time frame this was dropped.
    Most of the coins have been dating to the 1880's, but the town/area imhunting in goes back a lot further.

    Thanks Jay. You know where I was. It was just luck and timing. Definitely will be hard to top. Older or Larger?

    Me too. I keep looking at it, wondering how many I might have gone over, and didn't dig.
    The Deus is a Beast. I wouldn't mind trying that 800 you have been crushing it with, but I think the deus will excel in the hi-trash.
