    Re: 2.5 pound silver ingot

    That's an astonishing find for this area?!! The oldest find I found since being back here in St Pete is a few pieces of a harmonica reed and a piece of an old toy gun.

    I'm glad you found it, not me. 2.5 pounds of silver wouldn't come close to paying the medical bills from the heart attack I'd have if I dug that up!

    I know we have history here, though it seems hard to detect for because of how much of the area has been built over since I was a kid. I've grew up here and have lived in the same place for 26 years, and I've seen SO many places developed. Guess I'm just gonna have to do more research for this area, now that I'm back down here for good (from college in Missouri). Most of my good research was for up north...

    Yes, I knew the area is quite old. Panfilo de Narvaez landed here in the 1520's, right down the street from my church... and I used to go on archaeological digs here in the area as well, as there were Native American tribes all over the coastal areas. Not to mention the privateers/pirates that roamed our coast, such as Billy Bowlegs; whom I just found out while researching that he was locked up at the fort over on Egmont Key in May, 1858 with his band of Seminole warriors... which is pretty neat!
    Anyway, there's definitely history here... if I can only find the soil to swing my coil over. lol

    Re: 2.5 pound silver ingot

    That wouldn't happen to be from Belleair Bluffs area, would it? Just wondering... I've read some information over that area in the past... about a certain fresh water spring. You're probably right about the two-box... I'll check around to see if anyone has one in this area. I have a 15" WOT coil for my IDX Pro that should get down to about 1-1/2 to 2 feet on a moderately sized item. No telling what it would do for larger metallic items. A friend of mine found a US belt plate with the same coil at about 14 inches up in Arkansas. Anyway, I'll also keep my eyes peeled for old maps for Hillsborough during my research.

    I heard that the spring may still be there, close to the hospital... and close to a particular mansion that was owned previously by Lisa Marie Presley.

    I'm sure it's just hear-say... and I'd be better off if I had a boat to cruise the bluffs & see for myself.
    And that's interesting that there are guys out digging big holes, as I thought it was too classy of a neighborhood to allow that. A two-box would be a beneficial tool though for here in our area.
    I'll never give up... history is in my blood.

    Oh, and I know it's a last minute notice... but myself, K*E*L*L*Y, and LX Kid are heading down to Anna Maria Island to meet up with cntrydncr1 (the huge ring in the banner is hers), and possibly Mumsie & Florida Bill at 7am on Sunday morning... if you'd like to come with us.
    I can't believe I'm actually missing church to go. lol Anyway, if you're able to go, let me know.

    You probably already came across these, but I figured I'd post them just in case you hadn't.
    Doubt they'll be "great" for map-overlay...
