THere are two types of discoveries in the world: those which are found by the devoted treasure-hunters, spending days, months, maybe even years before even finding something rare..and then there are those lucky few who, well, just stumble upon it…
A FEW MONTHS AGO, A COUPLE (WHO REMAIN ANONYMOUS),
STUMBLED UPON TREASURE THEY WERE DEFINITELY NOT EXPECTING TO FIND!
you are walking your dog on your property, along the same path you’ve always taken, when you spot a piece of an rusty metal canister under a tree.
Curiosity strikes you, so you pull the can from the dirt, only to discover several more rusty old canisters. You assume they must be filled with paint because they’re so heavy!
You and your partner take all eight rusty canisters back to the house to find out.
And then…it wasn’t paint.. or anything you ever expected to find on YOUR own stomping grounds!
And now, you’re getting a taste of what it must’ve been for those lucky gold diggers in the Gold Rush era who experienced (nearly) the same thing.
You seek the expertise of a coin expert and sure enough- real gold, 1,427 pieces, to be exact, with a face value of $27,000.
And That exact scenario was played out by a couple in Northern California, less than a year ago, who found these uncirculated gold coins from the late 1800’s (as authenticated by David Hall, co-founder of Professional coin grading service of Santa Ana).
“THE COINS THAT ARE OUT THERE THAT HAVE MAINTAINED THEIR VALUE THE BEST OVER THE YEARS ARE THE COINS THAT HAVE GOOD STORIES.”
