Great. Just great. Now I gotta add a metal detector to my list for next Christmas..... I'm hopeless. rolleyes.gif

Congrats to the finder, and that just goes to show that the Oldtimers did not find it all - unless that was a solid gold meteorite.....

Sure would be nice to find one of those in your lifetime. Most I have ever found with a detector is an old tractor seat. emoticon-misc-004.gif

Nice nugget. Not the greatest, but nice.
