Default Third one of these i have found.

Found this detecting at the beach yesterday. Heard the clunk in the scoop and looked with great anticipation and the thought run thru my mind. Not Another One.

I bring them home, take a picture and return them to the ocean

No Gold, No Silver, Only $5.10 in clad and about 25 of Felix's pennies. I did give two of them to a lady who was very inquisitive about those zinc rascals. They were prime examples of a Felix.

Yup, they come out from time to time. Attach it to a big lead weight and toss it way out there...

Default common find in my favorite lake

The end of the city pier is a choice drop off point. The ones I find come from several states.

I rarely see those up here, not sure why..other then it must be something that started after the 70's or maybe the Bay is just a undesirable place to dump ash's.
