    Gold coin!

    Smokey n I have been smokin" em with some great finds. We hit up her permission and beat up a productive spot. I started with a civil war era button. I haven't got an ID but South Carolina was suggested. Next to that I got the bullet on the right. I believe its a Sharps. Then I got a minnie ball and a bunch of coal and junk. I was using the Deus HF at 28 and/ or 74 kz. I got into a few more modern bullets. 22 caliber were ringing up 82 and 45 caliber higher. I even got an unfired 30 ot. I thought I had one more 22 bullet until i flipped the plug and saw this beauty looking up at me! No mint mark so Philadelphia but a big bucket lister for how tiny it is! The Deus really stepped my game up this week in some iron sites I had beat up previously with the Nox. My Nox is a little upset she hasn't been out of the trunk for the past few hunts but I feel like I am clicking with the Deus right now. Obviously i did my gold dance although I have to admit I am a little out of practice after a dismal beach season. I am pretty darn excited and feel like I really stepped up a level in my treasure finding!

    Yup! And you didn't let the rest of us know you had it until almost the end (which was when it was dug BTW). It was a tough hunt, I got a few minies, a general service button and a horse rosette.

    You brought that coin down in a *gasp* blue rubber glove! Glad it didn't fall out. BANNER! and congrats on your first one! That place is getting harder and harder, but it still gives up the stuff!

    Excellent find. When I finally find my first gold I'm hoping it'll be the Dahlonega mint.
