    My guess is if you found the gold coin at a bank with a gun, you might need to return it and possibly do 3 to 5 in a county lock up.

    I remember getting a State Park metal detecting permit and reading it over. There was a line that said:

    YOU MUST TURN IN ANY FINDS WORTH MORE THAN $20 TO THE PARKS DEPARTMENT.

    I don't think I ever laughed that hard before.

    Welcome here. There are many funny comments here. You are lucky to find gold coins anywhere. Just tell your wife or girlfriend or both. Nobody else except our Uncle Sam. Good luck.

    I will admit I would tell NOBODY and keep them, heck I never knew such a law could be on the books anyways, but I am very impressed to see such honesty these days. I have much respect for you, I know very few people with even close to that kind of character.

    When I was in the army they told us that a secret stopped being a secret the instant a 2nd person knew what you know, because from then on you have no control of where the knowledge went.
    NEVER EVER commit to paper something that you don't want known now or in the future. (Just assume electronics now too)

    Uhhh, last I checked, there was/is a lot of show & tell that gets put on md'ing forums. Even some highly valuable stuff that's very worthy of "atteboys". Ok, you tell me: How many of those people got the IRS showing up at their doorsteps asking for the tax due on those items ?

    And how many beach hunters posting their latest show & tell ring finds, have had police show up at their doorstep to make sure they followed proper lost & found procedures for their state ?

    If you answered both these questions correctly, I think you will see that you are over-thinking things a *tad* bit.

    I'll let you know when I find so many I need help digging them up. Until then I only ever found aluminum cans and pennies but I spent more cleaning them than they are worth.

    Got a link ? Me thinks whatever it is, that you're citing, is only for something very specific. Not "the entire state". Got a link ?

    For example: This has been a common misinterpretation of the FMDAC's state-by-state compendium : Someone reads something dire about their state's parks (like if it has an outight "no"). And they mistakingly think that means all the parks in their state. But on the contrary: That's only for state parks. And has no bearing on city, federal, county, or private land. And ..... no ....... any such rule does not "subrogate downwards to lesser/lower entities ".

    So .... got a link ?

    Wisconsin I've been told, some detectorist found copper culture artifacts and sold them on eBay, it ended water, beach, stream and River hunting anywhere. Believe this was 2009.
