Default A SoCal Gold Rush And More Indians And Silver Too

Hey everyone,
Here are some finds from last week. They are from two short hunts after work and one all day hunt this weekend with my buddies Dan and Kurt.

The highlights were my 5th piece of gold this year, a nice signet 10k ring. I'm starting to like finding this yellow stuff . I also found 8 silver coins, a 1700's cash coin, 2 more indians bringing my total for the year to 23, a silver ring and almost 30 wheats.

Hope you are all having a good week.
Jason

Those are great old finds. Do the marbles come up in the holes you dig for the coins ?

Thanks! Some marbles come in the holes but mostly eyeball finds in vacant lots or where there is gopher activity.

Thanks buddy! The bottle was about 3/4 exposed in some area that had a bunch of gopher activity. Forgot to mention it is made by pyrex and is a 1920's insulin bottle.

Great finds as usual Jason. Are you digging only really deep low tones or are you digging a ton of trash to get the gold?

Thanks Keith. My trash pouch was fun so yes at this spot I was digging a bunch of the mid tones if they sounded good.
