Haven’t posted here in a while, but todays find has blown my mind and I wanted to share it.
Today I was digging an old oyster shell road near downtown that has been recently disturbed by construction.
Last week I found a 1845 LC and a 1853 half dime at this location.
Decided to go back and made one of my best finds ever.
1852 10 dollar California gold rush era, gold coin.
In…. Wait for it….
South Mississippi.
I never knew this variation existed.
First I thought bottle cap. Then I saw the writing and I thought car wash token, or arcade token. Then flipped it over and saw the eagle. OMG ten dollar gold. Still can't believe it.
Likely dropped by a wealthy New Orleanian who vacationed here during the summer.

Wow dude! Congratulations!

If you were going to go out and dig one coin up you sure picked the right one. Take a bow! That's the winner!
Thanks buddy. Never knew it existed. Also never figured id dig a coin worth thousands of dollars. My most valuable coins prior to this were my 1721/22 9 Deniers.
