  1. Doesn't look like a meteorite. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  2. I envy you with a field that big to detect in. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  3. You shouldn't have much competition in Brawley! Great new area to work. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  4. I dug about 30-40 grommets at one small 25' x 25' site a few years ago. I couldn't figure out what was going on with all the detached grommets? Talked to a local old timer detectorist and found out the Boy Scouts used that area to do their yearly retiring flag cremonies (they burned the flags). GaryC/Oregon Coast
  5. Looks to be the overhead view of a theatre or ampitheatre. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  6. OK Joe, enough of the Iron Man philosophy! I don't want you pushing the boundaries again! Rest Up and get back on here. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  7. Actually his name is Raymond Block ( http://leavennotrace.org/ ). He is kind of a one man band when it comes to the environment and trash pickup on Coastal 101, beaches and roads throughout the state. You can usually see him single handed along all those roads picking up trash and depositing the secured up bags of trash along the roadside for the municipalities to dispose of. When I took the picture his whale was only partially built and was quite a lot filled in when New Years Eve came. On his website you can see it being torched and being pulled out to sea. I did go down and do some det
  8. Was on my Oregon beach today Surf Perch fishing and met this guy who was building a whale out of driftwood. He pegged all the pieces together with wood pins! Kind of an environmentalist guy. He is going to torch it off New Year's Eve. Looks like a good place to detect the next day if all the people show up to watch it! Too rough to catch anything. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  9. Nice finds! I'm also experiencing/struggling with the falsing on my Oregon beaches, in the wet (with the AQ). I also get the falsing swinging one way than the other. Using very similar settings as you. Still looking for my first Oregon beach gold with the AQ. Very slim pickings up this way. Looking for those King Tides later this month. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  10. AND, it's an off center die ERROR coin! NICE!!!! GaryC/Oregon Coast
  11. Ya, when you spin the coin/medallion it puts the two images together. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  12. Nice spinner (last photo), looks like it's missing the cage to hold the coin/medallion. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  13. Second photo looks to be the bottom to a Frozen Charlotte doll. Looks like the upper body and head snapped off. Made of bisque porcelain. Very common play doll through the thirties. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  14. Lead was used to seal the can after filling. Lots of turn-of-the-century food containers used this method. Not the most healthy of choice! GaryC/Oregon Coast
  15. Saw it! Very disappointing. Not sure I can believe the Gold Coin find! GaryC/Oregon Coast
