    Oh I wish I were with you when that (expletive) New York (expletive) came out to talk (expletive). I would have told him I would cram my metal detector up his (expletive) so deep that I would have to hold him by his feet and detect with his fat (expletive) head.

    Nice digs!

    Wow, great finds!

    Did the big Italian guy ask you to leave or did he say "I'm going to make you an offer you can't refuse"?
    Treasure is where you find it, trash is where they left it.

    Isn't it illegal for a retired cop to impersonate an active duty cop ?
    I realize they may still carry some prestige and have some pull, but their badge flashing days of authority are over, doesn't seem like a very wise thing to do.

    He had retired active duty SFPD but was still a hand gun instructor on the force, this enabled him to lawfully still carry his badge.

    Great finds! We have a few smaller islands like that around here, and I've considered hitting them. How is the trash? I would think there would be a ton of trash.

    The amount of trash was not bad, a few aluminum screw caps, some pulltabs, brass fittings, copper wire, aluminum foil. Overall it was not bad, more coins than trash. I've hunted about 25 of these islands and about 60% had silver in them. Try to find the ones in the older neighborhoods. Good luck... CHF.

    Good thing you left when you did-otherwise some other guy with a metal detector might have dug you up someday!
