Default A happy day in the Gold Department

Headed out to what I thought would be a good park for a few coins. Almost empty, I think I scored 53 cents. Driving back, I thought I would try my good park in the past few months. Parked and waltzed in to a baseball area and first target was a good signal. Probe wouldn't touch it so I dug about 1 1/2 inches and A big goldie pops out. Didn't believe it until I got a closer look. 14K and it fits my thumb. 7.6 Grms. A real shot in the arm for me.
Cheers, Good Luck, and Stay safe to all.
