What an amazing find by BCDC member James Onuska. A 1849-1854 Type 1 US $1 coin. The chance of finding gold coins are slim, but they are out there, and James can take this off of his 'bucket list'. James' gold coin was featured on Garrett's website and chosen by Vaughan Garrett as 'Favorite Find of the Month Winner' for November 2018. Congratulations James!
BCDC Charter Member "Gary Waddell" received publication on his spectacular find of an 1904-S Barber Half. See pics below on the cover of Western & Eastern Treasures and the seperate write-up by W.E.T. about Gary's find. Gary's article also appeared in the 2013 edition of Silver & Gold, also attached below. This is great recognition for Gary and the BCDC club. We're all proud of you Gary. Keep up the great finds!
