First Gold Coin!
March 29, 2018 06:34PM
I never thought I would be writing this post..
After chasing what I thought was going to be an Indian Head Cent.
My fortune changed when it turned out to be a 1910 Indian Half Eagle Gold Coin!
Shocked is in understatement.. I was heading back to the truck with about 5 minuets left in the hunt..
A fantastic way to end the day for sure!
Found in an early 1900s city park with the Equinox 800..

Eastern Washington State Tom..
Not exactly the kind of place you imagine finding a gold coin..
That definitely added to the shock value since I never realistically thought I would find one..

My mind has been opened!

Ah yes, chalk another one up for a west coast guy smiling smiley A $10 gold was just found in the South SF bay area of CA within the last week. And seemingly every time one floats around on md'ing forum's trophy showings: They're usually from the west coast states.

Good for you ! We don't allow those east of the Mississippi after all smoking smiley

Congratz on the md'rs "hole in one" holy grail of finds. Other md'rs will now call you "sir". And you can autograph other people's detectors now thumbs down

Thanks everyone!
I’m glad I have this place to share my find!
I have learned so much from you all..
Without the knowledge that I have gained from both Tom and Steve’s forums,
I wouldn’t have near the success that I have had over the last few years..
It’s no doubt that some of the best in the hobby call these forums home..
