Whites DFX, Notka Makro Simplex. Folks the price don’t mean everything, the question is are you willing to put in the time to learn the machine, experience will pay off I guarantee it.

If the Confederate army had all this gold, they would have won the war. They lost partly because they were fighting with obsolete pistols and rifles. Hard to fight with a single shot pistol when your enemy has a revolver! Why would they stash all this gold and not use it to better arm their men? I'm sorry, but ALL these stories are just rumors and legends. In the 150 years since the war ended, has anyone ever found ANY Civil War gold stashed anywhere? I'm mean actual gold, not gold that the FBI stole and no one has a photo of! Lol!

Confederate gold would probably be Dahlonega Gold.

"Gold Coins of the Dahlonega Mint 1838 - 1861: A Numismatic History and Analysis. The gold coins struck at the Dahlonega Georgia Mint during the years 1838-1861 are some of the most sought after in all of numismatics. The historical significance of the Dahlonega Mint and its coins has a certain appeal that attracts collectors from all over the world."

Thet were turned in around May of 1933 to the government or they were stashed. I have never seen a Gold coin that is worn like the Silver coins in circulation when I was a kid.

That show was ok. It seemed like the guy did a lot of research. Alas it never came back on. Coopers Treasures was another one that was OK and not renewed.

@ Macaydon. Forgot Charlotte they were actually under Confederate control for a short while. Interesting story on that particular mint. Never seen a coin posted from there.
