Before there was a gold rush in California in 1849, there was a gold rush in Georgia. In 1828, a 25 year old Benjamin Park, pictured below, was hunting, and as the buck ran away, he heaved a rock in frustration. The rock created a crack in a formation that revealed a gold vein that set off a gold frenzy in Dahlonega, GA.

Apparently some guy named Bill Jones once put together a presentation on Dahlonega Gold and shared coins in his collection... seems like a nice guy...

For all the Carson City lovers here is the press that could have minted your coins in action.

I thought this crimson toning was cool. It was offered by DLRC for a little less than $10k a few months ago, I think.

Thanks for this thread, numismatic_student! I've learned a lot from it.

Teslacoil, thanks for the video. It's amazing that a press built in 1878 was still striking coins in Denver in 1966.
