I saw that little glimmer of gold in the hole, not a coin but that's ok. Reads high range or rich orange on the inside.About the size of a dime and shank is bent over. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks, dave

Looks like there isn't that much detail on the net about John Dean, but the 1810-30 range is about right.
