    I Found Jesus

    I hadn’t put attention to it but it does look like one. I checked and tried to spin it but it didn’t move at all so I’m guessing it’s not.

    Hello From Lone Pine, Ca

    Welcome from SoCal. I have made a few stops there on my way to Bishop/Mammoth. The 395 is a nice scenic route.

    I Found Jesus

    I am quite pleased and hope I can meet my ring goal for this year. I look for Jesus as much as I look for honesty in politics. I really wish I was into detecting when I visited Australia during my time in the service.

    I Found Jesus

    There’s been some sand movement in SoCal beaches and I got there just in time to get a few crumbs. There was another hunter there before me since I could see the opened holes and junk laying besides them. Luckily he left me a few keepers. I hunted 3 days for a total of $35+ in clad and 5 gold pieces. Good luck out there and happy hunting.

    A Once In A Lifetime Gold Find

    Thanks Happa. I wasn’t going to dig it either but since it was going to be my last target I figured why not. HH

    Sorry for the late reply Gerry. You can sell the name brand rings on eBay, Craigslist , etsy, etc... Some places are better then others. I still have the Cartier ring but I will probably sell it to get some more accessories for my Equinox. HH

    A Once In A Lifetime Gold Find

    I updated the post with some info on the spot I found it. Thank you all for the kind words. HH
  13. This particular find happened on July of this year. I went out today for few hours just to kill time. I wasn’t expecting much so I was just taking my time digging targets. I was digging lots of thrash as usual along with some pennies. I was using the Equinox 800 and since I wasn’t finding much I started just jumping between park 1 and field 1. After a few hours I came across this iffy target that would jump all over the place with negative numbers and hit 20-21 once in a while. I’m like another penny, I guess I will dig it since it’s my last target. I dug it and I see this weird coin staring back at me. I grab it and I’m a little confused now cause it sure doesn’t look like a Penny at all. After a few seconds go by it finally clicks, OMG this a fracken gold coin. Now I’m shaking And trying to figure out what to do next. After a minute or two I figured I should put it on top of the detector to let it breath and take a picture. Well, here it is and I hope this isn’t a dream. Thank you for looking and remember to dig everything because you just never know. I wish you all a Happy New Year. The last two pictures are after I finished cleaning it with water without any rubbing. The coin looks better in person but my camera phone can’t capture it good. I found the coin in a public place where construction was being done. A lot of old dirt was pulled and spread out, about the size of a football field and 12”+ in depth. A few of us hunted this site for a couple of weeks till they took most of the dirt back and cover the rest with clean dirt. I will make another post later with my othe finds from there. Happy New Year to all.

    Hello From Socal

    Hello everyone, I am sort of new here as far as posting but have been reading all the great info this forum has to offer since I joined. I also browse all the finds forums for motivation since there’s always some great treasure being posted. Once I figure out how to post pictures I will share some of my finds. I live in Southern California and I hope to meet some other Detectorist, until then I wish everyone a great holiday season. HH Oscar
