There was a nice surprise on my prospecting trip. My friend Tom popped this up with his gp5000.
   
   

Oh, and here is a couple nice pennyweight nugs my buddy Mike found.

Wow, an 1843 French coin! Now that's a neat piece!! I understand we're by & large a country of immigrants, but, it never ceases to amaze me how coins like that wound up here. Only transport at that time was ship. Someone traveled a looooong way with that in their pocket, only to lose it. And your buddy finds it 170 years later! That's the fun of this hobby Happy

Yeah its pretty neat. We read in the history books how people came from all over theworld to mine gold during the rush...then we find the evidence.

I need some older dirt!  There is history in my town back to gold rush and before, but getting to the old dirt is a challenge.  Nice find for sure!
