The most valuable American coin ever found with a metal detector is to auction at Stack's Bowers Galleries on November 16th. The famously rare coin, a 1652 New England sixpence, was discovered 339 years later buried in a potato field in Long Island. It is now expected to fetch upwards of $100,000.

Oh do Faith, best purchase I've made recently! Been striking gold weekly... maybe not real gold just yet but some pretty interesting coins all the same!
