holding 1852 1 dollar gold coin I just recovered 04-04-19.JPG Wow! Is all I can say. Was invited back
by my generous host to hunt the Pa farm once again before farmer plants crops. We speculate this area was once part of the Gettysburg campaign 1863 with all Federal and Confederate buttons and plates that we have all dug. No Reb buttons or plates today but my Nox 800 did sniff out a solid lock on 12 signal at about 4-5 inches in depth. After careful pinpointing and popping the plug I thought for sure I had a Jefferson nickel !�� Boy was i pleasantly surprised to be looking at a small gold colored coin with a number 1 on the reverse. It wasn’t until I put it in my hand did I fully realize what I had just recovered- my first ever gold coin-1852 1 Dollar gold coin. I thought I would never dig a gold coin in a thousand lifetimes. The good Lord I give all the glory and thanks ���� for allowing me to dig such a coveted piece of gold coin history. Happy hunting .

Wayne

Awesome! I know the feeling...I dug my first $1 gold coin in a camp near Alexandria Va. Thought I was digging a piece of camp lead and out it popped. Great find!
