Wow. With luck like that you should be looking for bigfoot and the loch ness monster, I have a feeling you'd find them in no time...

I said just please tell me if this is real. They tested it and said it certainly was and I had a 12 to 14 grand ring! 18K white gold and the main princess cut diamond was flawless.

Made my week!!

At least i'm not the only one to walk into a store in my wetsuit! lol

Good luck with your bottles. You never know. I posted mine on another site and it was seen by a bottle collector in Detroit. He only had a piece of one. His bottle collection was amazing.

Thanks for your comments. I have tons to share and lots of fun with this hobby.
What was your coin valued at? Looks to be in great condition.
Thanks for sharing!

Scuba, did you find the gold coin in our area? We met last year across from your shop. What an amazing thing to find. I try to never even dream about finding one, but if you found one around here.... maybe there's hope!

Ok I don't know how to do multiple quotes so here goes.

Hemicharger. I have NO idea if yours is included. You need to find Bottlemike in Detroit. He might be VERY interested!

Never valued the Good for 5.00 in gold token.

The 10.00 gold piece was found in a park in Utah. All I can say is DIG DEEP zinc penny signals.
