  1. Roman Coins in Anza-Borrego Desert

    Many years ago, on a lark, I tossed six Roman Coins along the bank of Tule Wash (above the wash itself) in Anza-Borrego Desert. A few years later (2014) I briefly mentioned it in someone else's thread on finding a Roman Coin in the US. To my astonishment, only one person in five pages of posts...
  2. List of Some Thrift Finds

    I learned about thrift store deals in SoCal. I hit three stores about two to three times a week. Some of my best finds have been: 1. PRADA Leather Shoulder Bag $10 ret $1000 (new) 2. Fender Stratocaster (Mexican) Guitar $129 ret $350-$400 ($700 new) 3. BC...
  3. Bulldog Butte

    Okay. I am finding old articles referring to a "Bulldog Butte". My first guess was The Bulldog Mine. Its location I have heard and read as on Bulldog Peak or Bulldog Mountain. Not Bulldog Butte. Also, the finding stories don't mesh: 1. The Bulldog Claims were first made in November of 1892. No...
  4. Both sides of Stone Maps Argument

    Because I have spent so many years researching the history of the Stone Maps, I can effectively argue either side of the issue. So here we go: TRAVIS CARVED THEM AND THEY ARE ALL HIS DOING When Frank and Ryan were in Texas, they had family members that stated they personally witnessed...
  5. The Big Rebel Mine

    Had a very interesting day yesterday. While Woody and I were at the Mining Museum in Humbolt (AZ). We started talking to a guy whose family donated 90% of all the displays in the Museum. His family had been mining in the area since the 1880s. While pointing out some of the old mines in the...
  6. Spanish Treasure Bars Book Question

    Hello All, Since the greatest majority of my searching and researching pertains to Land Treasures (Lost Mines, Hidden Caches, etc), I don't venture too often into the Shipwreck Forums. Now our paths have crossed, and I need a little help if y'all don't mind. Several years ago, I was...
  7. Viking Longboat Found in California Mountains!

    Okay. Since this is the only Viking Longboat Story I know of, I will put it here in the area for a different "Lost Ship of the Desert" Story. Everybody has heard of the "Lost Pearl Ship" of Capt Juan Iturbide. Even more amazing (to me) is the lesser known story regarding the finding of what...
  8. Electric Coin Roll Hunting

    Okay, I got this idea from a thread started by TheMastermind. I am not a coin roll hunter, but I am kind of geeky, and like to find new uses for technology in this hobby. The premise is very simple, and might save you folks some time, effort, and money (I don't even know if this has been done...

  10. Keep Threads Navigable

    So, one thing that has always bugged me was wading through 120 pages of a thread to find a quote or picture. It takes forever! I know everybody wants to have the thread with the highest page count (I am just as guilty as most), but do yourself and your fellow TNetters a favor; When you have a...

  12. Does Cheap Really Mean Crappy?

    Usually, YES. The phrase "You get what you pay for" means exactly what it says, and is most often correct ..........................buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut: There have been several several amazing finds made with cheap crappy detectors, and find made with a dog. *Here just recently, Coinman123...
  13. UNBELIEVEABLE New Mexico Phone Call

    Okay, So I am calling around some (New Mexico) City and State Government Offices trying to find some old case files.

  15. Bob Ward Unusual New Mexico Link

    In researching some things about Willie Douthit and his buddy Buster Ward, I found something that struck a note with me. I had never made the connection before (even though there is likely ZERO connection), but we all know about a famous Dutch Hunter named Bob L. Ward. Willie Douthit's Buddy...

  18. MK Roberts and The Lost Dutchman Mine Apology

    I have always said that I think that I am man enough and intellectually honest enough to admit when I am wrong. For a long time now, I have been basing my opinions of information provided by Kraig through a filter of his supposedly well researched bogus military history, and after that, the...

    USGS Circular #1178 "ASSESSMENT OF UNDISCOVERED DEPOSITS OF GOLD, SILVER, COPPER, LEAD, AND ZINC IN THE UNITED STATES" I don't know how many of you have seen this circular, but it is very interesting, and should be read by anybody interested in the subject of mining and prospecting.

    White's Service is AWESOME! Not so long ago, I had a great experience with Minelab's Customer Service, and I posted about it. Now its White's Turn! I bought a White's Goldmaster 4B on Ebay for $245. Advertised as "works great", but when it showed up, not so much. It was skittery and the meter...
