    1851 Quarter Eagle GOLD

    Long Island, NY

    Only had a brief amount of time to get out this morning but sure glad I did. Went back to what has been a very productive wooded area where a house once stood. Have pulled numerous buttons, copper and silver coins dating from late 1700's thru mid 1800's. Today I stepped it up to gold. Minelab Equinox 600 gave me a solid 16 reading from several directions but also a bit of iron tone nearby the target. Dug it anyway as it was very repeatable. Low and behold I see the glimmer of gold coming from the rim of a coin. I gently pulled the coin out and sprayed with some water that I always keep on me. The water rinses the sand away to reveal a beautiflly preserved 1851 No mint mark 2 1/2 dollar gold coin. What a day!!!

    Simply marvelous. I cant wait to find my first gold coin (still on the bucket list). You have a real beauty there. Maybe she has a friend close by waiting to be found. Keep swingin.

    Really is amazing like you said. Never found gold before but surprised how nice it came out. Few squirts of water and it all washed away. The soil at this site has been very friendly to coins. Even some of the coppers have turned out very nice considering their age.
