    Wow, what a morning! :wow: Personally I love water detecting which unfortunately in my area apparently a lot of others do as well which leaves everything pretty much picked clean daily. But there are...

    Nicely done Jared! It's really tough to find good spots recently, much less places where there might still be gold. I'm guessing there's likely more than a few gold signet rings around there...

    Very cool find, even has I think variation of the English royal crest. I tried to look it up and found it's made in Hong Kong along with sales listings on Etsy, E-Bay, and elsewhere.

    Wow Jared, that's a really sweet looking ring! You're right, seeing gold in the scoop is quite a rush. On the flip side is seeing gold and once in hand having the letdown of being fake.

    Drew,
    As this is the only actual beach that anyone recreates on in any number and has easy access I've seen as many as a dozen (or more) people at one time detecting the beach in the early...

    I'm no expert. but it looks very modern and crudely made from copper pipe and tube. Guessing it may be drug related?

    Thanks Dan! The camera looks far more complex than it really is. Basically a rig to mount a lot of accessories to such as the big external battery and power distribution block to run everything...

    Those are some really great finds! The CW tokens are rare here in Wisconsin, and I've only found 1 myself after having to drive 3 hours West to find it.

    Great post, and lots of cool hobbies everyone! Love the turning, although I've never done wood lathe stuff myself. Metal work is part of my job so never really do anything artistic.

    I've checked a LOT of those reject trays and rarely find much of note, but that seated is amazing! Some minor gunk removal and you have a great showpiece, not to mention after looking it up on PCGS,...

    Great finds for sure! I've only been out a couple times this year and haven't really found much. Seems to me they love moving dirt around our area so much that even wooded park land is fill material,...

    Great find! I've only ever found a couple of those Canukian largest (half cent and cent), and those were nowhere one would have expected. Even though not American coins, they're always a welcome find.

    You guys are probably getting that tingling feeling from the rest of our jealousy since a really good day here might get us a few IH's or a V nickel. :envious:

    One addition I forgot to ask about. I don't know if you water detect, either shallow water or diving, but there's likely a TON of shipwrecks in the area as well. Centuries of hurricanes dumping...

    I also have seen many examples of CW heel plates that look more like horseshoes that wrap around the bottom of the heel, and I think those were the most used and more practical. I think the heart...

    Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong here, but this is my understanding. Although I've never found any heel plates myself I have seen a few in differing sizes. I've always heard they were attributed...

    Those are some great finds! Not often do we see those big coppers in the Midwest, not to mention Canadian. I got lucky once and found a Canukian largie and half cent in the most unexpected of places...
