Went on a road trip today to get some detecting in.
About 60 miles across country to the permissions.
6 sites were planted in winter wheat.
2 sites in a 1 foot plow, and 1 site partially cropped.

So first target after 30 minutes 1867-1967 penny

I said that needs to a 100 yrs older.
1.5 hrs later the next target I finally justified in taking a photo.
A saw nut

I got tired of plow row detecting so I went on a corn stubble field, found what was a big ash layer down 6" and over a large foot print.
Probably a barn that burnt down.
So between the saw nut and this buckle was another 2 hrs.
I was thinking this is a hard day for no really good keepers.

Beautiful bell

Little did I know that 10 minutes later life would so great!
Solid 80 on the Deus ll
I thought gee a coin would be nice.
Dug the plug saw the edge-and for next few minutes I just looked at it and said NO WAY!
I looked away looked down and said it again No Way.

WOW!! What a great pic in the clump- I would've been going out of my mind praying it was indeed a gold coin and not a "gotcha". I've been at it for 33 years, never got one or seen one found, so it remains at the top of my bucket list.
My banner vote is in and Major CONGRATS for that lifetime find!!

Bet your stoked about that one. I'd vote banner, but I haven't figured out where to click since I no longer have a computer. Everything I do IT wise these days is with a smartphone.

Congratulations on a fantastic hunt with a golden lining. After almost 21 years I am still looking for my gold coin. She is beautiful and we don't see many sovereigns posted here. In my opinion that is definitely a banner find. I really hope you get enough votes to make the banner.

Stay safe, good luck and keep swingin. Maybe you’ll find another one soon. Good things do come in groups sometimes.
