Hand of Faith Golden Nugget Fremont Street Las Vegas Largest Gold Nugget on Display

On Fremont Street within the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino is displayed a gold nugget that is approximate 62 pounds.  It is the largest gold nugget on display anywhere.  According to the display it was found by a guy with a metal detector.  Apparently this guy got the urge to go metal detecting and when out behind his trailer.  There six inches below the surface he found the nugget.  This nugget is about eighteen inches tall.  At the current price of gold, about 1400.00 dollars an ounce, that equals over a million dollars.

Where's my metal detector?
