Wednesday at the Lake nets 14K GOLD BABY!!!

Went to the Lake with my friend Kevin and borrowed his AT-Pro...got a 65 solid hit and I thought I would be getting a pulltab or screwcap, but up pops this!!!






The second picture is on top of a quarter for size comparison... 8.3 grams of 14K...
Also found was a lot of pulltabs and bottlecaps and shotgun shells...A Little Clad...


Happy Hunting,

Another City Park Hunt

Nothing too exciting for Last Saturday...A No Date Buffalo Nickel, 8 Wheats. With all that wheat you would think I would get at least 1 Silver....We have pounded this park though, and not too much left...I need a larger coil to get the deeper stuff now...
