Found another Camp and my First Gold Coin
« on: October 09, 2015, 10:39:56 PM »
I found my first Gold Coin today! 1855 One Dollar. Ive been metal detecting for 30 years and have never found one. Found in a corn field where I think there was a 19th century house. One thing I know for sure is soldiers camped there. Also found some buttons and a little lead. One of the buttons is an 1840 Van Buren and Harrison campaign button. It has a log cabin on it. Not in very good condition. Most of the buttons coming out of this site are pretty rough. Here are my finds from 3 hours of  hunting.  Its a difficult site. Its LOADED with iron. The gold coin had several nails close to it and was probaly 4 to 5 inches deep.  I put the small coil on my detector and every little high tone squeak I get I try to isolate with. Good thing is there isnt ANY new trash here. Its all 19th century and seems to be all Civil War and before.
