"why Is This Here?" Strange Beach Day

That poor little kid was apparently hugging the jellyfish, he got stung in the face. His mom and grandmother didn't know what to do. I ran as fast as an old guy can run to the truck for the vinegar, it was parked right next to the beach bath house and bathroom. 🀣 Gave her a couple paper towels. It only lessens the pain but it's better than nothing or more, shall we say, "odd" treatments...

It was great to get a 200+ and 100+ year old coin on the beach. If the Cuban coin said "proof", it would be worth a lot. I think they were minted in Philadelphia!

Ouch ...in the face πŸ€• Lesson learned, never hug a jellyfish.

Fantastic finds, F350! The locals didn't get it all after all, but I only hope I'm still getting out there like they are at that age... which isn't as far away as it used to be... 😏

Thanks Cap'n! I was an uncle and a Boy Scout too. 🀣

The main reason they didn't find them is that they were probably cherry picking and skipped all pull tab signals, they have White's detectors. The old man almost fainted when I handed him the Deus 2 at VA Beach πŸ˜€ I found 3 nickels too.

I lowered discrimination to zero, had reactivity at 1.5, salt sense 1, I think audio response was 5, and bottle caps 3. Detector was running hot and finding tiny pieces of iron which it identified correctly but I dug them anyway. I didn't want to miss any gold should it be there, the plated hairpin was a 6 I think. Bottle caps were always a solid 4.

The coins were right near the surface so they probably skipped them. I might have if I wasn't trying new stuff.
