Cool Gold, Silver, Cash and Tiffany!

Driving to work in the morning I could see the surf pounding for the first time in what seems an eternity. So, I thought I would try a short night hunt for the big 2am low.

I was not disappointed. Treated to my first small erosion event of the season I pulled 5 rings. One silver and one 2.2g of 10k. Then came the bracelet, my first Tiffany! Sterling with one bigger link of 18k. Luckily, my wife hasn't claimed it, ha.

On my way back to the truck I stopped at a likely spot to leave the eye glasses and car keys I had found and right on the ground was a 20 bill!

Anyway, a very productive night

Hey Muskrat, I saw the waves were a bit higher than recent history. Too. But after studying the buoy history, and direction, and beach cam's, it wasn't enough to entice me out. Obviously you got rewarded for diligence. Congrat's on the gold .

Are you at liberty to say what beach had any erosion ? If not here, then in a PM ? thanx !

Got the PM. Thanx. You got a miniature sample of erosion for sure. Now if only that cut & slope didn't extend the entire length of the beach !

Thanks, certainly my best coin/trash/ring ratio that I can remember.

Good job on the gold and silver plus the twenty dollar bill... Felix gets all excited over a dollar bill and his crusty coins named after him

to stroke muskrat's feathers a bit : By the next night's low tide, a few others tried to follow in his footsteps, hoping that mother nature's erosion would hold up through 2 tide cycles. Alas, between those 3 hunters, perhaps all of 30 to 35 coins, a silver ring, and a tteeennssy 1.5 gram 18k gold charm turned up.

Durned that Muskrat for not leaving us more stuff !
