Default 1st Parking Lot Gold of Year

After I got done plowing a commercial account in a puddle saw a glint of yellow... its the smallest piece of 18k gold I have ever found... it must have been in a nose or something... after having a coffee I needed gas and went to the gas station and wanted a few things inside... in the change I saw the buff then the dime... some kid must have robbed grandma

You seem to do pretty good on eye ball finds Craig. Gotta start keeping my eyes open.

Wow...just Wow! What a sad state of affairs have befallen us!? Eyeball hunting parking lots for miniscule scraps? Zipped Over to Goldcalc to evaluate your massive life changing score.. point 1gr of 18k is worth $3!

Although, I gotta say, Congrats on even seeing that tiny little item? You must have been blessed with Chuck Yeager kind of vision! So theres that, saved yourself some money...you dont need an eye test or new prescription on your spectacles!

You don't even own a machine that could find that do you Craig? I hope you don't need money so bad you have to send it in for melt right away. I would be scared it would get lost in the mail!

As stated any gold is good gold. I got a good laugh at Felix and his remark

You'll get the dinger but just barely! Made my morning

I was actually going to question by what right he was posting a gold land find here in the "Beach & Water Hunting "section, but I guess since he found it in a "puddle" of water and he got in on a technicality!

Maybe my best finds of the year will come out of the dirt this coming season... I have 5 properties that I have secured permissions for... they all have history to them and one being very special.

About 10 years ago after a water hunt David.. I was climbing over a snowbank and sticking out of it I saw a $20 dollar bill so I took my scoop and dug around a little and came up with 3 more twenties... made my day
