  • Last post of 2017.

    I had hoped to go out with a bang this year but it ended more like a whimper.
    After 2 and a half days of torrential downpour I finally made it back out for the last 2 days of the year.
    And there was just no treasure to be had.
    I did make gas money.
    The cash coin came yesterday. Click image for larger version  Name:	20171231_102952.jpg Views:	1 Size:	70.1 KB ID:	278977
    And the 1933 big 5 nickel came today. Click image for larger version  Name:	20171231_175238.jpg Views:	2 Size:	152.9 KB ID:	278978
    And the recyclables were added to as well.
    This is the neatest thing to end up in the scrap pile this time.
    I know that it does not look like much when looked at this way Click image for larger version  Name:	20171231_101058.jpg Views:	1 Size:	48.5 KB ID:	278974
    But straightened up and turned around it is kinda cool.
    Which old radio it is from I have no idea. https://www.google.ca/search?q=marco...oytFf30qMAjrM: Click image for larger version  Name:	media_upload2_1514745079208.jpg Views:	1 Size:	92.3 KB ID:	278975
    The oldest coin I could scrape up today was this. Click image for larger version  Name:	media_upload2_1514762727197.jpg Views:	1 Size:	127.1 KB ID:	278976Happy New Year everyone.
    May all your days be filled with the treasure that you seek. Click image for larger version  Name:	20171231_222426.jpg Views:	1 Size:	235.8 KB ID:	278979

          Thanks Tom. I have no idea how or why that ended up in the middle of a field.

        Time to start over for 2018!. Started the year on the beach pretty meager. Quarter, dime, 4 pennies and a dog tag. Headed out to old parks Wednesday and Sunday!
