    All Types Of Treasure Hunting


    Signal was too low but when I seen big round coin pop out got my hopes up on a large cent only to be let down. It’s just a casino token or a parking meter don’t really know just what they say online. Oh well Maybe next time.

    Been there, done that... How about the ones with Chuck E Cheese or Pacman? It's like they're literally laughing at you!

    I know the feeling. I once reached into my hole and felt what I thought was going to finally be a belt plate but, it turned out to be an oval cow tag.

    I may be the odd man out here, but I get a kick out of digging tokens .. of any type!

    It's not that you found a token, Barrydang. It's that you found something.

    I’m still waiting for my first large cent. seen at least 2 dug by friends but the worst was that bigazz space jam coin. I thought for sure it was a silver dollar. I’ve never been so disappointed to see Michael Jordan in all my life.
