    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.

    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.

    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.

    Years ago I had a metal detecting hunting partner who was retired SFPD, he still carried his badge when we went out hunting in the city. When those busy bodies would show up and cause trouble he would show his badge! Wish he was still in the hobby......Send me a PM and we'll see if its the same spot.
