    well first of all, you need to send them to me for verification

    second, how would anyone know where you found it?

    why would the question apply to just "gold coins" ? The question could be asked of all/any valuable finds, eh ? Another factor is who owns the creek on/in which it was found ? City ? County ? State ? Fed ? private ?

    Probably lost & found laws apply, when/if the value exceeds a set criteria value. Usually somewhere between $100 to $200-ish value. And the law doesn't define HOW an item is valued (intrinsic vs collector vs face value).

    But I've never found any gold coins, so I wouldn't know

    Very few people would ever know where I found a gold coin.

    If you find any coins or valuables at all don't forget to claim them on taxes so you can be legal....then they would be yours....

    They must catch you before they can hang you and if you dont tell them, how will they ever know?

    I think it would have to be the same as finding a coin in a public park- it's mine if I find it.
    Would you send the state an arrowhead you found?

    Jeff, really ? Try this then: If you find a crisp low-circulation 1916 D merc, or 1901 S barber quarter, then do the following test of your statement: Take the coin into city hall at your city. Tell them:

    "Hi. I found this in *your* park. It's worth $10,000 . Can I keep it for my own fun and profit to sell on ebay ? Or does it belong in the city museum or city coffers?"

    I think you would find out the coin is not "yours". Hence .... Hurry ..... go do the right thing.

    And here's what you need to do, to make sure you're in compliance with all public land Indian artifacts you find: Take that arrowhead to the most militant indian tribe type persons you can find (the ones who have a hissy fit if an Indian bone is bothered). Hold up the arrow head and say:

    "Hi. I found this in the public park. Can I keep it for my own cool collection or to sell on ebay ? "


    Then sit back and bask in their reply . After all, it's your *duty* to make sure that every last conceivable person is ok with your actions. And that every last person feels those objects are legally yours to keep. Ok. Go make us proud now !!

    When it comes to the law a lot of us put our hands over our ears and yell na na na na na I can't hear you!!!
    Like Tom pointed out people here post pictures of arrow heads they found. They probably violated the Antiquities Act if they collected on public lands.
    I'm amazed when hearing of the rules in some other countries. I don't like rules much. Especially the ones I don't like.

    Mr Historical diggers, not an unreasonable question. Seeing by your machines, your not a newbie by no means. I would like you to goggle Georgia laws on such. Guarantee their some from days of ole on mining streams etc. There are laws to parks etc.

    Knowing the laws you will be able to confront the screamers and the know it all when your knees are in the water. Or you come up for air/break time.

    Good luck in finding the pot of gold.
