Pardon Our Mess…

Barrier For Safety
If you have ever stopped by in between auctions you will see that during those in-between days the show-room looks more like a storage room, and is not ready for visitors (or “company”, as my Grandma used to say).  This has occasionally frustrated those who would like to pop in and take a look around, but in our endeavor to offer superior service we allow access to preview items only on auction day.  This truly is for the benefit of offering both consignors and bidders a safe, secure, and organized experience when visiting Pot Of Gold. ~Cheryl

Treasure And History Collide In One $50 Coin

In the early 1800s, money was gold.  At that time, America’s largest gold coin was the $10 gold piece with our patriotic eagle on the reverse. The name for the coin became known as the “Eagle.” A $50 piece of currency is five times the size, and is called a “Quintuple Eagle”.  Such a $50 Ingot or Slug as shown here, was used in large transactions, and was the coin of choice, since people shunned paper money and in fact paper money was illegal… ” Read on…

Remembering an awesome POG Auction Moment! A 150 year old bible is “brought home”! (VIDEO)

Bible

A family reunited with an heirloom

Ann Abbott-Stong and her family traveled all the way from Colorado in hopes of being reunited with the family bible.

This unassuming leather bound book becomes a huge blessing connecting the past with the present:

1864 Family Bible w/ Genealogy & Photos
A Holy Bible containing the Old and New Testaments which was published by John Edwin Potter in Philadelphia in 1864. In 1868 the Bible was presented to Peter V. Van Arsdale by his father. The Bible contains 768 pages, is leather bound with a metal clasp lock. The pages between the Old and New Testament contain a fascinating family genealogy and family portraits. There are several loose items in the Book as well, a couple of locks of hair, a peacock feather, news clippings, and other items. Book is well worn due to age and use, the leather cover is worn and some of the pages have foxing.

Watch this heartwarming story of how one of our bidders used her love of genealogy to track down the family of which this 150 year old Bible holds the family history.  Grab a tissue and enjoy!
