Item Found: Gold

Location:

Metal Detector Used: Spectra Series (800-0319)


May 1st, 2009

My first Gold coin find in 25 years of detecting! Today was a perfect day to go hunting and I had my eye on a wooded hillside next to an early 1800's cemetery. Nancy wanted to go to some playgrounds to hunt, so off to the playgrounds we go. Good call honey. It wasn't long into the hunt when I got a +43 VDI and switching to Analyze, it showed a good clean signal. I pinpointed and dug down three inches and I saw an odd colored foreign coin. It didn't take long to see the date of 1876 and then it hit me that I had just found my first gold coin EVER. I guess almost any detector could have found this coin but doing the "happy dance" with the cordless headphones sure was nice.
