Having never found a find, I define a find as what other people find.

Is a find a find before its found?
I think not, the logic's sound.
In the past, finds were found.
No one knows what's underground.

Future finds are speculation
If unfound, more consternation
If uncovered, jubilation
Risk, reward or humiliation

A searcher's quest may stay behind
without a clue of any kind.
You'll never know, not in your mind,
'cause it must be found to be a find.

A haiku:

I'm glad we found Frank
He delights us with his rhyme
Yes, Frank is a find

Default Fresh to Hobby Material = Find

I believe it is fresh to the hobby material. A significant find, would be either a large quantity of material, a new exceptionally rare piece, or some exceptional condition pieces. Some finds hit on all three. Finds like the Black Swamp, Skydash, or Lucky Seven would be significant but there were many smaller finds made the last few years that got little to no press.

skydash find was epic...not my wheelhouse but it changed the landscape for those discs.

louisiana find to me was pretty incredible...and obviously BSF was unheard of...E98 will never be the same.

+1.... I like the small finds as much as the large ones. (unless it is my large find, then I like it better )

As shown before, here is a small find (to me) ....I had never seen W575-1 packaging before these. All 20 cards that came in the pack were in the lot that was won.
