Tom Boykins Nevada Adventure

Recommended Posts

This is a four day adventure that Tom Boykin and a friend recently went on to Nevada. Day 2 will air next week. Tom is with White's Electronics and we are lucky to have him here as a forum member. New videos in the series will be posted on this thread as they come out. Part of the four day adventure will be at the recently held Rye Patch Nugget Shoot.

There is a tiny peek at the new White's prototype - see if you can spot it!

Hey Tom

Thanks for the video and a short look at just maybe a new detector coming out from White's. It will be interesting to hear more as time goes by.

It was good to see you face to face in a round about way.

The Best.

Chuck

What was the ring made of? Silver? Gold? or ????? the coating of dirt made it hard to tell.

      I was cruising through the Minelab website looking for any new bits on the Equinox and came across this marketing video that compares the detectors in the "Treasure Detector" range.  I think it's interesting, though not surprising, that the marketing hype is toned-down when the Equinox is compared to the rest of the Minelab range.

      Tom(CA) and I have been working a site that we researched that's produced several 1850's - 1860's seated coins, and some rogue early 1900's coins, as well as a variety of period relics.
      We tried to get one more trip in before Old Man Winter completely shut us down, and it did in fact shut us down, but not before I finally, got something I've been looking for for a long time, and after watching others find them over the years (I saw Tom dig three!!!), I was starting to think it would never happen.  
      Well it finally happened, and it turned out to be a good one, an 1865 San Francisco minted Liberty Half Eagle!!  
      Here she is out of the hole:

      Here she is rinsed off:


      Here's a video of the hunt:
      Less than 100 known, Mintage: 27,612

      Although the mintage of the 1865-S is quite a bit higher than the mintages of the S Mint Half Eagles from 1858 to 1864, it compares in overall rarity to the 1858-S, 1860-S and 1863-S and is only slightly less rare than the others. Almost all known examples of this date are well worn with VF and lower being all one can expect to find. The 1865-S ranks second in the entire $5 series according to average grade and I do not know of a specimen that would grade better than EF. The very few specimens that I have seen were rather softly struck and the mintmark was always quite weak.

      Thanks for looking, hopefully the next one comes easier

      Published on Aug 15, 2017 -  In this video we work on finding a promising area to set up the gold dredge and then get it up and running. We work it for a day. In the end, I pan out my concentrates, but did not capture the final pans. But I think it's an interesting video and I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did making it.
