2 years ago I helped a guy get into metal detecting. Got him an Ace 250 and a pinpointer, taught him the basics and sent him out. 2 weeks later during his SECOND HUNT he sends me pictures of THIS!!!! An 1876 $20 Double Eagle.

I hate him.

By the way, congrats on a great find. I donít hate you. Lol.

How cool is that? Probably a gold coin is at the top of every detectors list. One dollar or twenty dollars, I could not care less, I just want one. I too am interested in what the numbers were and how deep? And wondering if I ever passed over one cause I didn't like the numbers? I suppose you might have passed over it once or twice if you hunted that park thirty times? Major congrates to you.
HH everyone

Posts like this are keeping the dream alive! You just never know what still lies beneath the surface; even in "hammered" places!

Love the coin but how it was found really is a eye opener. You just never know when or where..
