Fellow nugget hunter passes ( 2 large Nevada nuggets for sale)
Posted 24 February 2012 - 08:51 PM
For those of you who don't know me my name is Larry Soper and my friend Dave Martin passed away last week. His wife has asked me to sell a couple of Dave's large nuggets. Two people on this forum who can attest for my character and honesty is Seeker (George) and LuckyLundy (Rick).
I have attached pictures of the two nuggets. The 49.6 gram nugget was found in Rye Patch back in the 90's.
The 4.7 0z. nugget was found in the same area where Terry (T-Bone) found his lunkers and Smoky from Lovelock.
Also for sale is 45 grams of placer nuggets and fines & 20.2 grams of gold splatter from Newmont Gold Mine.
Thank You in advance,

Larry... Maybe we met over coffee at Burns Brother Truck stop?... Many "fulltimers" would be gathered at the
counter swapping "tales." Terry loved the "salad bar." He was then using the White's GM-2. Frugal Floyd was
there at one time using an early SD-2000. There were many other fulltimers that are just a fading memory such as
Richard, Homer, Jerry and Charlie Sotherlin(spelling?) from Texas... ,
Back then placer was being found around by a fellow from Texas who had written permission to hunt the claim
where the Cottonwood tree downslope from the old Keystone mine. Actually he was camped under the Cottowood..
There was once,earlier, an eagle nesting in the tree but I guess he was driven away but the rush,... when the
excitement hit the well known fan, the open ground on the low ridge became a parking spot... One time I counted
over 22 vehicles parked thre. Many where from Arizona... I believe from the " something or other, known as '24 xx club?'"...
