Default First ugly bling of 2018...so ugly it scared me!

Haven't been out much so far this year but I got a few hours in between cold snaps.
Today I found my first junky bling today, some sort of mutated dog.
Scary when I got a good look at that face.

Still, better than junk.
Hopefully silver and gold will show up eventually.

Perhaps tossed in disgust after the big game! That sure is scary ugly - almost as ugly as that loss (Sorry Georgia fans...thatís probably too soon, but couldnít resist the dig!)

Anyways, congrats on a unique and interesting find, Digger!

Hi Digger. That might be some kind of Chinese artifact. Could be worth hundreds of dollars.

Hay,, You never know..

41 on my F70.
Hoping for gold but curses, foiled again.
Or I should say beaver tailed again because that is the number those things usually come in at around here.
Most times I would have passed it by but it was super solid with no wavering and I dig all those kind of signals every time no matter what.

She's ugly, but it does have a little bit of a cool factor.

Pulltabbed again should we say leavetab instead.
