Default Starting a Tribe!

I went on a hunt with Romy and a mutual friend today. No gold for any of us but we all had decent finds. Near the same spot where I found the 1906 Indian Penny and buffalo nickels 2 weeks ago, I found a 1907 IP today. I had my phone with me so I captured the moment:

I followed that up with a thin silver Roosevelt dime...

...and near the end of the hunt I found a hefty tungsten carbide ring.

My Excal is still in the shop being modified so I used the Dual Field on today's hunt. I love the Dual Field but this area is so trashy that it really tested my patience (and my back). It was a fun hunt but it would have been more fun with "discrimination". GL&HH!

Thanks Felix, I think that there's a bucket list/Indian/"pail" face joke in here somewhere.

Thanks Romy, I've enjoyed all of our hunts together as well. Too bad that work and life sometimes gets in the way of our hobbies eh?

Now they've downgraded it. I'm not too excited about it anymore. It looks like it'll be *barely* registering 15 ft NW on any of those days. And for Monterey bay, (NW facing beaches) that's not good enough. I'll certainly go take a looksie, but am not holding out high hopes.

Sorry LT, If I discover an area I'm happy to share. If someone invites me to an area they found I have to respect their wishes. It's in the Pirate's Code.

Thumbs up Thanks Guys

My kind of people on the West coast, on the East coast for now, that Indian was found land hunting George which i did in 2016, 2017 was the worst year of my life, trying to put it behind me, Thanks Earl PS LOW TIDE Loose lips do sink ships. It's happened to one of my bro's over here, i am looking at the fastest jet Ski with a turbo you can get, as ya gotta keep up with those pirates or they make that- quick exit , on the other hand, just kidding, i am looking for a 2320 or 2300 cc Parker, for fishing - 80 k is a hard chunk of to swallow , happy hunting West coast, Mid Atlantic down and out.

Congrats, it's always good to find a Indian hiding in the sand.

Beautiful coin. If I'm correct, the area you hunted was established around 1906 so that's a good one right there.
