    Digging in the dirt & scooping in the water!
    Got a new storm going through there on the West coast. Maybe more cobs? Certainly more adventure!

    I can see why you joined TNet, and we're glad you did. The entertainment value AND the inspiration.

    To answer tom in ca, ya usually I end up with a handful of coins like these. I have found some nice silver coinage like Mercury's, standing liberties, barbers, etc. But most of it is usually modern coinage thats half rotted after a week in the water. I have found a lot of gold and silver and platinum jewlery over the years. I will post more pics of other things in the future. Im slowly learning to navigate this site its my first day and a bit challenging. I have cigar boxes of coinage like this. My son thinks its great. Its all treasure to him. Maybe ill re bury it some day. I gather a lot of aluminum and trash too. Its not all glory like the money shots. Determination and putting in time does pay off in the end. I cant figure out how to like someones finds yet its driving me nuts!!Click image for larger version.
