Mark and I hit a site that we believe was once a home/store along an old wagon road.

We had taken a forum member there once before and later he told us that one item he found was a old ancient Roman coin. I don't think I ever saw it. On the way there Mark and I were talking about that find. Funny how thing work like that!!

Dug a couple seated dimes, a very COOL National Guard of California button

and a crazy Roman coin (ancient counterfeit) but still dates to 79 BC.

Damn, Ron, you guys are tearing that place to smithereens out there! You know you had a phenomenal hunt when seateds take a back seat to another find Yes Chuckle In my book, the fact that it's THAT old overrides the point of it being a counterfeit. Due to the extreme age, who gives a $hit if it's real or not. Sure, you'd like it to be genuine, but at the end of the day, you've uncovered something most will never even dream of digging Wink

I agree Joe

and truthfully

because it's a counterfeit

that makes it far more rare than an actual period piece!

Awesome finds. Is that the oldest coin you guys have dug over there? Must have been from the time of the Roman invasion of California. Yes
