160,000 four leaf clovers: That's a lot of luck

Full story: Chicago Tribune

If finding a four-leaf clover brings the luck of the Irish, Edward Martin Sr. of Cooper Landing, Alaska , just might be a full-blooded leprechaun.

This article makes me feel as though the new record is unattainable . I presently have found 230 four leaf , 1 five leaf, 11 six leaf, and 1 seven leaf and I thought I was doing good, By the way , in case they ever do a MythBusters show on this, I still can't win the lottery lol

I met the 4 leaf clover man in Cooper Landing. He is sooo sweet. He gave me 100 4 leaf clovers as good luck to win the presidential election. I am a moronic joker, so I'll need all 160,000 of them to even get the Republican nod. I can see Russia from my house.

I found 147 4 leaf clovers in 1 hour-not to mention that I have a patch of atleast 50 4 leaf clovers in my yard. NO ONE is allowed to touch this patch. I was looking this up, assuming I probably have a record. I have always been able to find them with little effort. 5,6 and 7 leaf and 1 8 leaf. Good luck with getting the record, but I don't guess you need it!
We also have several of those patches in our yard. We are hoping we can set a record with Guinness, but I guess we'll have to beat your 147 in one hour!! My step-son, Jonathan, and I find four-leaf clovers all the time. He got into it after I helped him find some when he was younger. By the way, he is red/green color-blind!

I have about twenty-eight four leaf clovers and five five leafs. I also have two six leafs. I was looking to sell at least maybe some of my fours, but I cant seem to find if I could and how much they sell for. Is it worth my passion for finding them to just go and sell one?? Any answers for me?? Thanks!

I have been finding four-leaf clovers in abundance for about thirty-six years and never less than ten a week. I found thirty-seven last week in different patches in my yard.
This happened in Indiana, Florida and now north Georgia. Usually, they are white oval leaf clover, but I have found quite a few of the red triangle ones.
I do not really *look* for them, but I work in the yard a good deal. I do best when standing up and scanning the patch. I've found one rule of thumb is always true. If you find more than two in one patch, you will find others in that patch.
People don't believe me, however, when I tell them they are wild, because I have a background in horticulture and they think I grow cultivated ones.
Is there a club for four-leaf clover finders?
