    First hunt since May. 19th century gold

    Iíve been working offshore and unable to hunt. On my way home I stopped at a North New England shoreside town to a spot. It was completely overgrown but scored this beauty by the seashore.

    An quite knowledgeable friend pointed out that the hallmark is angled. He said that a Birmingham mintmark is typically sideways to the datemark and not angled. That said, we seem to both agree itís mid to late 19th century.

    And thought or insight is welcome, of course.

    Good hunts

    Very nice ring. We have the same problem but for us its the heat, have dug MAYBE a few times since February. Here we are thinking summer is pretty much done, and today was almost 90

    Target must be in the ground...Coil must swing over target...User must dig.

    Gold for the money...silver for the pleasure...copper for the history.

    I do not use the Like button. Proper intercourse should not be replaced by a click.
