  1. Outstanding finds, Chris. That 5 franc coin is huge! Bet it blew your mind to have the detector max out on something and it wasn't crap. πŸ˜€ Even the jewelry looks French. πŸ‘ Cool half Reale too.
  2. The Equinox was a retirement gift from my wife. πŸ‘ That is awesome. Guess we're blessed πŸ˜‡
  3. Sure was a heckuva run, Dan. Good to see all that silver! That's an experience that will last... Until the next oneπŸ˜€ πŸ‘
  4. I generally dig signals that are low, especially 1-10. First gold ring I dug in a beach was a 1, got one on a hill behind me that was a 5. Still not sure how much gold is in each. Got to find time to test them.
  5. Beautiful day to head out. Morning was in the 60s, light wind, never got out of the 70s. At first I was going to try the river, there was supposed to be a low tide. Got down there and it was disappointing. Waterman out in the river bringing in crab pots, and no real low tide. Maybe the harvest moon is keeping the water high. Decided to go to the newer house and see if I could find more coins, boy did I. 57 coins, about $3.50 just in the driveway! Not a fan of digging in gravel, but if you hit it on a low angle it's a lot easier and you don't damage the coins or your shovel. Dates range from 1965 to 2010. This makes over 125 coins I've dug here, still not one silver. 22 Zincolns 😡 Went across the road to scout my new permission, really not much there, got the 1954 dog tag and the Disabled Veterans fob above. Also dug a rein guide, a mangled silver plate spoon, and a corner plate. Here's the trash. Not bad for this place.
  6. Shame the Apex came out right after I bought the Ace 400. I was in a hurry to find all those nails. πŸ˜€ That ring is a great find. πŸ‘
  7. The key appears to be 2 or 3 pieces. Is there a mechanism of some sort?
  8. Nice toy hauler Jennifer. I am a humble relic/coin hunter, is that a Fuzion? πŸ˜€ I have a 40 foot Fuzion 371 I take to the beach. Takes a heckuva truck to pull the three wheelers. My F350 is an SRW short bed.
  9. Can't find anything on the pendant, your speculation about Comic-Con seems good to me. Could well be silver if it's heavy on it's own. Not much association between aliens, pyramids and Rubik's cubes. πŸ˜€ Could be an ignition key for a spaceship tho. πŸ€” Nice finds!
  10. Hey GB, one of the pot metal pieces is the Monopoly cannon. Interesting finds! Glad you got some gold. And I got the hammer for the cap gun if you need it πŸ˜€
  11. Unlikely I'll find one around here, heck I don't find much silver. 😡 I am excited about permissions coming to me. I was hoping that would happen. πŸ₯³
  12. Historic aerials has been a big help for me, I've found 2 house sites that no one living or still here knew about. One person even argued with me! πŸ˜€ The photos for this area only go back to about 1967, but that has been good enough. I also use the old USGS maps for the "dots" that indicate house presence, I'd like to learn how to overlay them on GPS apps so I can find them accurately. Guess you caught my post before I realized you did use aerials. 😳
  13. Aaaaaaand you got a Roosevelt too. 🀬 Seriously, great hunt. πŸ‘ Looks like your aerial reconnaissance paid off, there was something there before.
  14. Nice Dan. I see you got some silver Roosevelts. πŸ‘ Great finds! Silver is silver for sure. Guess the park hasn't been hunted, hope you find more. Were you using the Equinox?
