Default Small Gold,Small Silver,Big JUNKER

Hit the beach today two hours into the low tide.

St.Jude was looking over me. 14 kt.





I found this in the first 5 min. into my hunt.

Then I get this heart stopper! Bing bang boom it's junk!



I have to say it sure looked like the real deal in my scoop.





I also found a small silver ring at first I thought it was junk,got it home tested it out,it's silver.

Todays hunt lasted about 5 1/2 hours. Did about 11.33 in clad and almost broke my record on cald 12.00 +

No silver coins today,but there was a wheat penny and a junk earring in the mix.

One last scan of all my loot.

Nice gold day Njal! Good to see targets. Things here have sanded in again after a great week of erosion. Back to long walks and lots of swinging.

Thumbs up

Nice job Buddy !!!

You have been killing it since getting back out there..

The clad totals are sick and you got a nice piece of yellow and silver...

You should carry that medal with you , if you hit the SS beaches with me..You can never have enough protection out there

Hopefully you were able to get back out there again today, before it starts filling back in...These late low tides are killin me

Good luck today
