DARN! I was gonna be the first one to hit all those sites this spring. Great going! Would you consider a lot of the jewelry to be long-term losses or relatively recent, within last 10 or so years? Not sure if I mentioned but Bigfoot Beach pays out in gold also on a fairly regular basis but the gal I worked with that hunts it does a pretty good job on it every weekend herself.

Lowbatts, half of everything there is old finds at least 50-60 yrs old, the ring on the second row from the top all the way on the left side is 19th century french with a nice mine cut diamond. The one beach I hit has been gone over by everybody and most all my finds there were very deep and usually took at least 15-30 minutes just to get them out of the clay and rock mixture which is like digging in cement.
My friend said he has hit Bigfoot in the past and that it was littered with iron but NOW I'm going to hit it for sure.One of my customers is up that way and I could hit during the morning hours before the crowds show up. Are you in this area?

Yep, worked Bigfoot Beach a few times. Was sitting at water's edge which isn't hard to do there as you know. A little boy picked up a diamond ear stud in front of me and handed it to his granny. He was just picking through pebbles. I used to work up in Harvard with a gal from there and she had some great finds on her cleanups every Sunday night.
