Default Found A Hot Spot At A Pounded SoCal Park

Hey everyone,
Here are some finds from three hunts (two long hunts and a short hunt). I went back to the park I found the 4 silver quarters at and pulled more silver. I ended up finding 7 pieces of silver. One of the rings I found has the great seal on it and I think it might be a WW2 sweetheart ring. I went back for a second hunt and found 5 more silver coins. For the short hunt I took my son up the coast to Morro Bay and made a quick stop on the way and found a few wheats, war nickel, and sterling Mickey head.

Wow! Nice! If you're making finds like that I wouldn't say that's parks been pounded at all. I bet there's a lot more there.

Exactly. Which is why we don't allow him north of the Santa Barbara line. We don't want him poaching our silver, and cleaning out our parks. If I were you, I'd issue him a strict warning to stay west of the Colorado River, away from Kingman area. Lest you have nothing left to find ! You've been warned

Found A Hot Spot At A Pounded SoCal Park Of course you did. What else? You are a silver magnet Jason. Can't wait to see your end of the year round up. Congrats on another sweet silver haul. Both those rings are beautiful but the great seal ring is extra cool, Good luck, Mark

The 'seal' ring is a Girl Scout ring. Neat find! Congrats on all the silver!
