In 1799, in Cabarrus County North Carolina, a 12-year-old boy named Conrad Reed found a large yellow rock while playing in a creek on his family’s land. He hauled the stone home and his family, who liked the look of the shiny metal, used it as a doorstop in their home.
It sat there for a few years before Conrad’s dad took the stone to a local jeweler who let them know that their ‘doorstop’ was actually a gold nugget weighing 17lbs. People heard about Conrad’s discovery and flocked to the area to make their fortunes, thus beginning the first gold rush in the United States.
In honor of Conrad’s discovery, we’ve named this limited gold and black HELM colorway the ConRad Edition. Get it while it lasts – while the Carolina Gold Rush went on for nearly fifty years, you only have until December 22, 2017 to order the HELM ConRad Edition.
