Exceptional find - Just a walk in the park for the Etrac.  I'm guessing you're pleased with your choice.

Great find and you just never know what is going to be in the bottom of that hole!  Well done with your perseverance, finding the two nails and keeping checking.

Foreign silver coins were commonly circulated in the USA up intil 1857 when a new law stopped that.  You said the park goes back to the 1840's so this likely was lost in the first 10 or so years of the park's existence.  Just think (you likely already have...) what else might be down there at the 10 inch level....  I bet you can't wait for spring thaw.

      We've all seen them.  There are these pages that make you click and show you treasure and say greatest ...
      This link is to a site that shows mostly the best finds from the UK.  I learned a new way to rank the finds by viewing these.

      Hello detector-prospector friends,
      I had the honor to interview the finder-family of the legendary "Ambrosha-Nugget", found 1983 in Sierra County, California.
      Enjoy!

      Captain Henry Every was a 17th century pirate that took an Indian trading vessel and disappeared with it’s passengers, gold and silver aboard and was the subject of a worldwide manhunt but was never found. And then came along a detectorist who may have helped solve a part of the mystery:

      So when the excitement was over and we finally put it on the scale, it had us a little frustrated.  As such a bizarre and exquisite gold specimen, our lack of discovering this mythical style we had no experience before.  Now we learn, as well as a bill and coin of the actual weights.
      How many times have you dug a nice piece of gold to only drop on the scale and be baffled.
      Yes we were, but still a prize among gold collectors.  Watch the video and get a little lesson on gold and $100 bill.
