Someone actually seeded my beach with fake treasure. Really cruel.

The one thing i have longed for. Winter, summer,rain, snow, countless hours searching and this is what it comes to. I found the "old" looking one first and prayed that it could possibly be real. After another 2 hrs. I found the nice shiny one and knew the horrible truth. People are cruel.

I'm sure the beach will produce. Your hours will be worth it!

Man I hate when that happens. I was hunting an old site in town. Hit it a couple times for a few hours. The third time I went back, the neighbor must have emptied his penny jar. I pulled over $5 in pennies and 2 clad dimes form the surface. I was going to knock on his door to thank him for the practice and free money, but I really need more practice finding silver and gold, but that's not me. The positive his action did was to have me go back over an area I hunted the day before. I stuck my coil under an older pine tree to see if he had tossed money in that area, I ended up pulling my 2nd ever IHP. :thumbsup:

See if you are still so nice when they throw BB's at the beach. The detector hits on them, but they fall right through your scoop. So, you keep digging, but never find anything in that spot.

Funny that I found two of the exact same replicas on the beach of Jekyell Island a few weeks ago. The coins were crusty, but after a few tense looks, they were too uniform to be old. The coins were in the right spot, just the wrong age. :BangHead:
