Cal_Cobra MEETS AN INDIAN PRINCESS ON THE SPANISH TRAIL

Saying I had an epic weekend would be an understatement! I loaded the latest Equinox firmware update to try the new FE2/0 iron program, and it did not disappoint!

I've posted about trip reports from this site several times over the years. It's always been a fun site IMO, you just never know what you'll dig, and it dates back to the early 1800's with history into the 20th century. It saw it's share of the Spanish, Mexicans, Emigrants, and Americans. It's getting difficult, lots of flat iron still left, but good finds have been thinning out, easy finds have been gone for years. TomCA won't even hunt there any more.

This trip turned out to be absolutely EPIC! Unbelievable really, because there have been trips where neither Tom nor I have dug a single coin at this site, so to dig five period coins in one trip was astounding.

Now if these were just five common 1800's coins, I would've left there an extremely happy camper, but two out of the five turned out to be astounding finds!

An 1865-S Seated Liberty Dime AND a 1856-S INDIAN PRINCESS $1 GOLD PIECE!!! I am absolutely over the moon from this hunt!

I got all the coins on video, if you have a chance, take a look:

Without further ado:

Right after she was dug and I just ran some bottled water over her in the field:

Howdy Cal_Cobra--
Your tenacity paid off - BIG TIME! Congratulations! You just proved that a site is never completely hunted out. That Type 2 $1 gold is a real dandy. Type 2's, for those that don't know, were only minted from 1854-1856 and your 1856-S is a rare date and in nice AU condition. Best of luck and...
Happy Hunting!
