Obv closeup.jpeg rev close up.jpeg My first gold coin in 40 years of hunting, and in the middle of a plowed field!
Searching a farm field near my house here in Munich, Germany where I found the 1875 silver mark last week.
I was not excited when I first saw the glint of gold because I thought it was Euro 10 cent or a late 1920's 10 pfennig, but that changed fast when I wiped off the first layer of dirt. After I calmed down, I pulled out my Phone to document the coin.

The coin was not where I centered it at because there were two owl square nails in the hole which my White's pinpointer went to first. Sure glad I did not drive my shovel through it!! Hole field.jpeg hole.jpeg
Minelab 800 on Field 1 with FE1 at -7, and recovery speed of 6 due to all the iron in the field.

Guess I'll search the whole field now!!!!

That's a beautiful looking coin. Good Job..! Now find the other gold coin that was lost along with that one. It might be just a little bit deeper.

Congratulations, that’s a terrific find!
In the other forum I asked you what is meant by FE1, -7?
