The Story of Miner Mad Jack

This is a story miners tell about Mad Jack who sluiced and panned for gold on the American river in the late 1890's. Jack had a special area the he panned. His days' take was a pennyweight or two of gold, which was enough to buy one meal a day. This particular spring day jack went to the river looking for the elusive large gold nuggets that would make him rich. Jack looked up and down the river adn saw 20 or more miners panning. jack found an indian head penny and in a loud voice said "I'm throwing this here penny in the river for good luck". Well, jack got his wish, he fould a nugget that weighted around 30 pennywieghts or 1.5 ounces. The next day all the miners were throwing pennies in the river hoping to change their luck. These pennies are still found in the river. Now you can own one of these pennies crafted in to jewelry.
