The reason he does not want you digging around there is because he has buried several bodies in shallow graves and, it might be hard to explain if you found one of them and called the cops, ha ha.

Nice finds, looks like the island was a good producer for it's size and 3 hours. Bet if you can find a few more, there may be some more silver to find!

Nice finds! I would have walked over to him, introduced myself and after some chit chat I would have asked him if I could detect his yard. Most people can be swayed if you take the right approach and say the right things.

Nice Recovery GHF. You got a heck of a lot more time than I did on that island.
Several years ago me and a buddy were hunting that site early one morning. My friend is pulling wheats out within minutes of us starting. After about ten minutes of hunting I hear the sound of a Harley Davidson start and idle for another five minutes. Soon after I see and hear a SFPD moto cop pull up and motion to my buddy. After a few minutes of conversation my friend walks over to me and says we have to go. The officer was kind, but said we were not allowed to dig inside of that neighborhood due to homeowner association rules. The cop was a big dude, I didn't hear him talk but my guess is that it's the same person.

Congrats on the great finds! I could see how that ring would be a heart stopper for sure!

Stuck Behind the Iron Curtain in Occupied Soviet California..:(
SF has at least 10 islands very similar to the one I just hunted all over the city. I thought I had hunted all of them until I found this one on google maps a few days ago.
