Thread: Someone tossed a bunch of pennies in the shallows...

« Prev Thread | Next Thread »

    I was in the water detecting at a local lake about 20 feet from shore. ******* was on the beach in a chair and thought that I couldn't hear him with my headphones on. He was making all kinds of comments to the crowd on the beach about that crazy guy in the water and finally said he was going to throw a hand full of pennies to me. I stopped detecting, turned and looked right at him and said loudly " I THROW ROCKS AT PEOPLE THAT THROW PENNIES" . He got up, grabbed his chair and left with people on the beach laughing at him.

    Terry - just curious what beach you were at. I had the exact same thing happen to me a few days after new year on a more secluded section of Dania beach. I found a few twist wires from the tops of champagne bottles, and 20+ pennies at the low tide line close to the water. Pissed me off to no end, I just quit after # 20... I have a Tesoro Sand Shark PI detector, so I have to dig em all... lol

    I was asking my friends if there was some stupid new year tradition to throw a crap load of pennies in the water

    Beach and Shallow Water Hunting
    Honorable Mentions (1)
    Hunting CWB a few years ago I recovered about 175, mostly cents, in a 9 sq yard area in about 4-5 ft of water. Spent the day (6 hrs) trying to clean them out so I could search for gold underneath. I failed. Several months later, a fellow metal detectorist told me he and another guy recovered about 700 coins, mostly cents, from the same area. Only thing I could think was that people were throwing them off the nearby pier...lucky me!
