    Just out of interest did you cover it back up just for the photo? Looks like the soil is pressed back on top, I can see some evidence of thumb prints. I assume you did this after you dug it, just for affect?
    Congrats on a rare & valuable find in lovely condition.

    Crusader thanks for your comments and questions. Do u by chance work for Scotland Yard ? LOL .Yes indeed I did take pics only after picking it up off that dirt pile. . A good eye but don't think a finger print on it and yes as stated and wrote here when I answered in Telphans 2 questions and tried to paint a mental picture of the find for all of u to enjoy. Re written here. " So I dig a wide hole and throw up dirt in a pile." " Look into the hole and nothing." Then I catch the glint of something yellow sitting flat in the discharge dirt." "Maybe a gold coin? " Then some expletives I can't write here but u can imagine . "I picked up the coin and felt the heaviness of gold and gently cleaned it off." Then i took out my camera in my backpack and put the coin back on the pile to document the find. I think in my excitement of that moment could not resist holding this history in my hand. BTW the first 3 pics to include the one where the coin is sitting on top of the 4 grape shot is on site. I brought home soil from that hole and lightly cleaned the coin with water only then placed the coin obverse and reverse in the soil. Took some good pics. . So I will be the only witness where my eyes only saw the glint of gold sitting in and on that historic dirt the afternoon of 16 May 2019, at about 1400 hours. . . So yes the first two pics are for affect on site . However I do know on TN there has been those that misrepresent themselves and their finds. So to put any questions to rest about this find for the record know that the story is real, coin is real, the location and battle is real and I am real. Again thank u all for your kind words and yes I will be happy to return there and dig the rest of those pesky pull tabs. However most likely it was a single coin loss. It will remain in the soil found in for display so it feels at home with me. It will some day be donated to the Wilson Museum in Castine , Maine along with Cpt Hinkley's silver shoe buckle frame plus other relics from this battle/ siege and be home again. Keep swinging that coil my friends and making your own history and tell us about it. If interested in my last article for WE&T let me know and more than happy to post.. Gary
