Default Some More SoCal Goodies Including Silver And A Glower

Hey everyone,
Here are some finds from the last 4 outings all to tough spots. Two hunts were shorter and two were longer hunts. I ended up finding 4 silver coins, over 20 wheats, a handful of marbles, and a few other things. Always exciting to find that one of the marbles glows from uranium under a UV light and is called a lemonade I believe.

Hope you are all having a good week.

Congrats on your recent successes . Wow , that clay marble is an oldie . I have found a few of those over the years but none for quite awhile now .
I've been hunting a bit more lately but still haven't found enough to make a decent sized post , pretty soon though .
I found a thin , red , battered up Buffalo nickel and I used your scouring pad method , it came out pretty good considering how messed up it was . I will be showing it in my next post of finds .Thanks for the tip . More good hunting to you !

Congrats on some nice finds.... Unreal how many marbles you continue to find. Are they just lying on the surface?

Thanks! Glad that cleaning method worked out and looking forward to your post.

Wow, some nice finds !! Congrats on the silver and that glowing marble is really cool. My wife had some antique glass that would glow like that but she sold them.

Thanks. This is one of the ones I found this week and how most look when I spot them. Some are in holes too, maybe 10% of them.

Thanks. Sort of cool knowing some glass glows. Maybe one day I'll take a pic of all my glowing marbles.

Occasionally walking through trashy vacant lots I will spot marbles half buried. I never thought of collecting them really or hunting some of these trash infested lots. Jam , is this a good sign to hunt an area like this ?

I asked her and it's called carnival glass or uranium glass. Very cool.

Jason,

Congratulations on the finds including the nice marble(s)!

Like many places, we've still got a good foot of snow on the ground here in MA, but hoping to get out detecting by next weekend as warmer temperatures are in the forecast. Hard to believe I haven't swung a coil in almost a month (lol).

HH!

Mike

Like that ring too, pretty great finds again Jam!

Yes, if you are finding marbles in old vacant lots hunt them. There should be silver and other old coins and relics too.

Thanks Mike. I would go crazy not being able to detect for a month. Hope you get some detectable weather soon.

Thanks buddy! I think it's too late to store them in a lead box, I have been exposed

SoCal must be a mecca for marbles. I never find them anymore. Nice digs Jason!
