"I FOUND A G-O-L-D COIN" UPDATE 5-26

:dontknow: :dontknow:
Hey guys, I just got back from the "dealer" where I had the coin. I'm embarased to say I didn't find a solid gold coin, its onlly 14k reproduction. I thought and was told initially it was the real thing. It's still cool to me, big and heavy and it is 14k anyway. It looked correct but tested at 14k.
I'm appologizing for bragging to soon and ask that it is taken off the banner. I meant no harm, just excited. Hope you guys understand.

[cool] [cool] What a morning! I started out early this morning to hit a few schools before the kids and grandkids come over for hamburgers. The first schoolyard is a regular one of mine but I haven't been there for a few wekks. An hour later I had snagged 65 coins and a little trash. I put it on the tailgate for a pic. The weather is humid, about mid 70's and a little overcast. So I did'nt even break a sweat. Off to school #2 not expecting much there, usually onlu a few bits of clad there.
Started at the play area, couple of coins, then I went to the swings....First Signal as you can see in the pic was 12-Foil/Ring!!!!! I moved the chips awaw with my foot and saw GOLD. I said to myself, "Just junk, probably play coin....NO SIR....It is a Genuine 50 Peso with "Oro-Puro" written on it...I don't think I could do any better than this today. I had to call my huntin' buddy Lance and brag to him then off to the house to gloat to my wife!!!!! I'm Stoked!!!
Thanks for lookin' and keep diggin'.......

Re: "I FOUND A G-O-L-D COIN"

those 1 1/2 inch sized coins are often mounted in costly jewelry -- necklaces - seems like someone lost their "filler" ---or else a kid was in his pops coin collection --- if so boy is he gonna get it . ----- at 1 . 2 oz of pure gold content --- at say $955 per oz --thats a $ 1, 146 find at scrap melt value alone, banner find amigo.
