1853 $1 GOLD!! Holed, Scratchy, Slightly Bent But I'll Take It!
Quote this message in a reply
Hey all,

2nd Gold coin find in the last 9 yrs Happy

Went back to my trusty Brothel site tonight for a 2 hr hunt. Was checking on a few other sites out that way to see if I could get into any of them but they're not ready yet so I opted for the backup and boy am I glad I did!

Last time out I used the CTX 3030 when I found the Seated dime and 1865 Indian head

this time was the Deus's turn Yes

found in a mix of machine gun iron - was reading like complete junk (#s jumpin from 29 to 36) and sounded like tin crap but being where I was = "dig"!

Also worth mention:

1867 Injun in VF/XF cond. (full Liberty and nice)
1865 cruddy 2 cent piece Sad
Huge Rimfire cartridge of some type - looks like whatever lead was in it could take down a buffalo!
Found Abe Lincoln too Happy

Pictures tell the rest of the story... (Enjoy) and thanks for reading/lookin Beer

Dude!!!  That is awesome.  You got a whole pouch of cool stuff and a GOLD COIN on top of it.  Unbelievable.  Being holed says that someone was trying hard not to lose it.  Didn't work.  That's awesome.

WTG WAYNE!!!! YesYesYesBeer Nice bunch of finds!! That IH is to die for and that 1853 GOLD is in UNBELIEVABLE shape except for the hole some knucklehead put in it. That rimfire cartridge may be a Henry 44 or 44-40! It was a "Buffalo" lever action rifle. And the best of the bunch. Does it have a stamped "H" or "U" on the back?

Thanks PW 

I sorta thought that same thing

if you look close - you can tell it wasn't "drilled" -- it was "punched" with a nail or something and most likely worn around the neck...

Being at a Brothel site - maybe dude got in a fight and someone pulled it from his neck during the battle! lol

Mine now though Wink

WOWZER!!!!!!!!!! Just saw this. That's freakin incredible, Wayne!!! And good post, too, as we have that masking thread going. Jumpy numbers were because of the nearby junk. That is going up on the BANNER, my friend Yes

I know the attention-getter is the yellow, but, I think that's one of the nicest looking injuns I ever saw!

Wayne, not 100% convinced that that's Abe. I believe it to be a rare commemorative bust of Frank Sivero from Goodfellas. See pics below...
