Here is what I received from MudPuppy. These gifts are very special to me. I really do LOVE them. He could not have sent anything better. THANK YOU SO MUCH! Sorry the picture is not the greatest. The silver dollar is a 1925 PEACE Dollar; the ring is a scripture ring with Romans 8:8 on it; and the cross is 925. BEAUTIFUL!

* Mailing his package today!

This year I was lucky enough to be paired with Pasttom. I received his package today. He included some of the finds from his area. A Pepsi token from Camelot Park, a rolled cent from Pismo Beach, a nice little silver ring, a cross and a coin or token still encrusted the way he found it. He also included a pick for cleaning finds, a laser pointer, a carbiner, a little fish and a really nice small Buck knife. That will come in handy since I lost the knife I usually carry in my pocket. I always feel that I got a lot more than they received from me. Everyone on the forum always is generous with their exchange gifts.

Received my gift from TwistedT yesterday - a crazy non-stop day, so I stashed the box in my bag and brought it to work with me this morning to open.

All I can say is I'm in shock at all the amazing goodies.

My favorites are two flat buttons dug by TwistedT himself!

He also sent;

1951D die break error cent
1994 die break error cent
1960D large date - now I'll maybe finally learn how to tell!
Westward Journey Nickel set
Handbook of US coins
An incredible loupe - best loupe I've ever looked through (30x21) it's so clear!
A pack of batteries
A set of brushes
Two pairs of awesome gloves
A nice card

THANK YOU FRED for the amazing gifts! I will treasure them.

- Jeff

If the postal service is on schedule (doubtful), Khouse should be getting his care package today or tomorrow. I received mine in a super fast time. Thanks Kenny!

I got my gift from Dragonfire. Can I just say wow. I'm truely embarrassed for my gift that I sent him. He gave me 2 sets of gloves a loupe 2 silver dimes an assortment of tokens and a digger that he made himself and it looks tough as nails. Which is good because I didn't have one but now I do when I try out land detecting

I know what you mean...... After seeing some of the rest of the things, wondering if I may have been a little light....... Might have to follow up with a second package.......

I just received my gifts from Vermonster today and have to say they couldn't have been better if I picked them out myself. He sent me a package of venison jerkey from his own deer, I am a deer hunter too but due to family obligations this year didn't get to hunt so this was special. He also sent me a nice Joshua Tree national park 75th anniversary token, some nice gloves, batteries for my detector and this really cool U.S Border patrol challenge coin. The pics of this coin don't do it justice, it is one of the nicest Iv'e ever seen. I will display both coins proudly with my silver and gold finds. thanks so much Sean and Merry Christmas to all!

I'm so glad you liked everything. The one find pouch is what I use in the summer while I'm beachcomber hunting cause the water runs right through it. You didn't make me feel bad I just felt like I hadn't sent enough

Default Got my gift in!

Digger Dave read me like a book. He sent an awesome assortment of stuff. Several flat buttons, a 1922 French IndoChina Coin in beautiful shape, his first ox shoe, a couple primo cigars, gloves, a new set of kneepads (ill definitely be putting a hurting on these) a pair of safety glasses and great little head lamp.

He also included an odd little find. Its a penny stuck inside of a woodchip. Now ive seen bullets stuck in wood but nothing quite like this. Its a definite conversation piece for sure and will be front and center in my display case.

What an awesome way to start Christmas Week. Thanks so much to the forum and DiggerDave for this cool exchange.

Happy hunting and Merry Christmas!!!

Got Ron 71's gift last night, and it was great. The bateries and gloves will be put to good use, but he pouch us the best part. Until now, I detected with whatever cargo pants I had, so I used every pocket. Now I don't need to do that. Thanks a bunch Ron, much appreciated! !!

Crumble sent three gifts...a pair of gloves, a really nice pouch for my web belt, and an awesome silver coin that's really old, or at least looks old! I'll have fun researching it, because as a Gulf Coaster, I have zero experience with finds like this. If anybody wants to post a spoiler and tell me all about it, that would be fine, too! It weighs .75 oz. Reale cool! Thanks, Crumble!

Glad you liked the gifts Chris.

I tried to make the package a collection of practical store bought stuff and interesting finds. I see you slabbed the flat buttons and coin.

Merry Christmas to all!!
