Your 'Top 5' on the "Bucket List" and My 'Top Five.'

June 18, 2019 02:24AM avatar
I'm sure all responders will have a few that we'll find on most Bucket Lists, and that gets tougher to make adjustments to your own list, "especially when some of them have already been scratched off. Here is where I stand by comparison and what I have on my current "Top 5 Bucket List goals."

For me, I guess it would look something like.

1. Gold Coin ... I nabbed my 1913 $2½ Gold coin the summer of 1978 in Yamhill, OR.

2. Nevada Trade Token... Found my first in the Summer of 1990 in "Twin Flats" Utah and other since then in Tecoma, and a couple of other Nevada ghost towns in Elko County.

3. Seated Half... I dug 2 of them in one hole in August of 1991 in "Twin Flats" Utah.

4. A Capped Bust Coin... Only found one, an 1836 Capped Bust Half-Dime in Feb. of 1991 in "Twin Flats" Utah.

5. A Rare/Key Date coin (seem to miss those by a year or two)My favorite was an 1861-S Seated Liberty 25¢ piece found in June, 1990 in Ogden, Utah but there have been others. .. I forgot to add the 'S' mint mark when I proof read my post. Sorry.

So while YOUR Bucket List are all nice keepers to find, I've satisfied those and some other difficult-to-find coin targets out here in 'The West' such as now having found 8 Large Cents, a Flying Eagle Cent, several 2¢ pieces, and a few 3¢ pieces of both Silver and Nickel variety. and a few others that are likely on many detectorists' lists.

So my current 'Top 5 Bucket List' goals include the following in order of preference to find:

#1.. A Seated Liberty 20¢ piece.

#2.. US Gold Coins of other denominations.

#3.. A US Seated Liberty or Trade Dollar.

#4.. ANY rare Coin or Trade Token that can fetch me $1000 or more.

#5.. An early-era, virgin old site, that can reward me with ample older coins like "Twin Flats" has ... and improved health and mobility to work it as long as I have "Twin Flats" ... and last month made 50 years since my first search of a Ghost Town on May 4th of 1969.

Those are what I'd like to have come my way to fulfill my current "most wanted" list.

When I proof-read I had forgotten to add the 'S' mint mark. Now corrected.
