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 even mentioned it in a reply, and not one person contacted me regarding it. HAHAHA

So now its nearing the end of 2021, and still I haven't heard from anybody about it, and I haven't seen anyone claiming to have found them. Its funny, because a person could literally drive to within 50 or 60 feet of them. After so many years, that person would likely need a metal detector to find them.

Anybody want some free authentic Roman Coins? It will cost you some time and gas! HAHAHA I'll post a map to their location, and if you send me a pic, I'll confirm it.

If you are driving South along Highway 86, you take a right onto the road to the landfill. In a bit, it makes a sweeping right turn, then is straight as an arrow all the way to the landfill. Between the road and the wash. They should still be there.

Enjoy - Mike

The next time I head out that way, I'll take a look if they haven't been found by then. I just flew right over that spot yesterday! :laughing7:
