I had been telling my buddy for months that if I didn’t something soon I couldn’t justify being away so much. Now my wife can’t say anything for 30 years

We are really no different then our ore seeking predecessors,we want the same thing...albeit in a different more pure form with dates and mintmarks which potentially change the overall value. We are all seekers...adventurers...miners....historians...all of us accumulating equipment,knowledge and outright skill in hopes of recovering a find of a lifetime like this.

OP-How does “The Count of ______ County” sound? I’ll really be pumped when I find that next Merc,thanks a bunch!


I spend a lot of time researching along with my buddy. We have 2 locations that are incredible and a dozen other sites that have potential. All we do is research and metal detect every free moment we get. We detect an easy 20 hours a week at gold rush sites. I have been detecting for a year and a half and have found untouched sites everywhere. A lot of that is thanks to growing up in the area and networking with friends. My point? There is plenty more of this out there.

Congratulations to you sir on a stunning, jaw dropping find and I agree with you wholeheartedly it's still out there to be found, even here in the Midwest.
