Default My 2017 So Cal Year In Review

Hey everyone,
Here are my highlights from 2017. I didn't get out as much as previous years because of my involvement with my son and little league plus enjoying spending time with my girlfriend and traveling but I am happy with my finds from last year.

A couple of highlights were:
1814 Large Cent
1908 Barber Half
1931s Wheat Penny

Enjoy the photos and happy new year.
Jason

Awesome! That's a lot of quality finds. I also found a Captain Midnight relic, though not as cool as that badge.

What a great year ! nice pile of silver. Just a ton of cool finds. My favorite is that V8 Ford token. I actually saved a pic of that when you posted it. It is #1 most wanted on my token list. Hope you have another fine year . HH Mark

Holy Toledo Jamflicker ! All that silver is blinding ! Great photo layout. And knowing the spots you hunt: It is a testament to your excellent 6th sense to sniff those out.

Oh ... and of course .... all of those came from south of the Santa Barbara line, right ?

Wow Jason, WTG!!! Awesome 2017.

But I expect no less of you since I've been out with you a few times and have seen first hand the craziness in you and your Etrac.

Don't be fooled. Jamflicker is a robot. He's not human. How else can we explain these humanly impossible feats ? Thus his show & tell doesn't count. Move along. Nothing to see here folks.

Those are awesome pics,for some reason I’m in love with that spoon! One hell of a season AGAIN Jason,it pays to know what the hell youre doing.
It’s good you get to mix it up with the boy,the gal AND detecting...and STILL have a turnout like that. Incredible as always!

Jam, you just keep that silver train a rollin! Heck of a year! But tell you what, I really like the tokens you find! I dig mainly for Civil War stuff, and have only dug a few tokens. Congrats and GL for 2018!

Looks like Jam has done the impossible, except I think he really did find all those great finds. Congratulations on another great metal detecting year, and sounds like you had a great time with your son, and gf too. Spending time with your son, and gf, is priceless.
HH everyone
