1907-2 1/2 Gold Dollar Piece

The pictured gold coin was found on the Connecticut/Rhode Island shoreline in 2001. Sandy entered her coin find at the Best of Northeast Treasure show in Keene, NH. She won first place for beach finds. The following is an excerpt from a letter Sandy Crouch sent DetectorPro. “With our son and daughter grown and building there own lives, we had more time to share together. Our best friends encouraged us to try detecting and join them in New Hampshire where we could see many brands and buy our first ones. We made an excellent choice and bought two. Our friends bought two also. The weight is in the headset and I’m able to swing my arm longer… An average of five hours a day. If I slow down and keep it low my finds increase. In one year we have found $700 in change, 80 rings and typical metal toys and sinkers. Our kids tease me, but express as long as I’m careful they’re happy I’m enjoying myself. One morning I drove south to work and proceeded to some local beaches. About 1/2 hour my pager went off… Time to go back. I showed Steve my finds and he literally grabbed out of my hand something. He asked the owner there… Who went on the computer to get some information. Turns out it was a 1907 2-1/2 Dollar Gold Piece. Wow. A coin dealer made many calculations and would not release it from his grasp and offered me $100. I said no. The bragging rights are priceless to me. I wear a 1950’s topaz ring I found to show people young and old. Yes I do find things. I am very happy with my DetectorPro. I brag for you.
