Default Anchor Chain

Well I found my once a year find probably this year. Right after a very busy Saturday on the lake. I was wading in water you couldn't see in and got a mid tone on my CZ-21. I scooped it up and saw it hanging from the scoop and was floored. I sure didn't expect to see this critter at all. 59.60 grams of 14K gold.



Since this is the largest chain I ever found, I would call it eye popping. Thanks for looking.

Very impressive!! Is that the one which you've already added to the gold contest, or is this another one?

Same critter. I wouldn't be that lucky to find two.

That is totally amazing!
I guess when you spend so many hours in the water, you are destined to find things like this.
Huge congratulations.
Just imagine the poor dude who lost it...
