    Hdgovroom, Interesting find. A good rule to go by with fossils is the soft pieces like the face in your lizard’s case don’t usually fossilize or are preserved outside of being encased in amber or buried in the permafrost like in Siberia or Alaska. Good luck with your hunts. Walt

  3. 🥇 BANNER Eighteen one troy ounce silver bars recovered underwater. Still doesn't feel real.

    RatherBeDigging, Outstanding hunt, definitely one you won’t be forgoing soon - nor will the folks on the forum. The bars could have been from a cache that someone buried and that were washed out in the springtime flooding. Good luck with your hunts. Walt PS, definitely don’t like the new format

    DryVaporSteam, Welcome back from Dayton, Ohio.

  15. The things we do for treasure

    Truth, Poison Ivy is my kryptonite, I think I only have to look at it and I breakout. It didn?t used to be that way and I only be became allergic to it since moving to Ohio last year. Spent 24+ years in the military and half of that was out in the field, add in my younger years where I...
