COINS, TREASURE, and RELICS

This forum is dedicated to the hunting of coins and relics with a metal detector.


Coin and Relic Forum Rules

First off let me welcome you to the Nugget-Shooter Coin and relic Forum,

There are just a few rules here and yup I do enforce them and keep an eye on things as best I can. Here are a few guidelines I'd like you to follow if you will be participating here.

Vulgar and abusive language is not welcome here! Heck a cuss word to get a point across is not so bad, but I think you know what I mean.

I will not host public arguments and pissing matches between individuals here so please just don't do it. When it happens the post most times will simply vanish into cyber space.

Political posts are not permitted here and surly you can find other forums that host those discussions, I don't think anyone cares if you are Conservative or Liberal when we are out hunting gold nuggets.

You may not use this forum to advertise any other dealer, store, or product without written permission by owner at any time. Used items are allowed in the classified section.

This forum is not responsible for anything said by it's members at any time. This is a public forum and will remain so and although I can and will occasionally zap "bad content" I don't do it often and so far have never banned a person. Also opinions expressed here do not always represent the opinion of the forum's owner!

Guests are welcome to browse the forum and use the information provided by registered members, but you can not post yourself until you are a registered member.

That is pretty much it my fellow Nugget Shooters so enjoy the forum, keep it about metal detecting for coin and relic related subjects, and play nice.

    • Your prayers are appreciated.   I go on the fourth to schedule eyelid surgery on both eyes and find out the results of my blood and eye tests.  I am having trouble chewing food due to weak muscles in my mouth and throat also in swollowing food,  additionally I am hoarse, have neck pain and have the eyelid problems.  These are the primary symptoms of Myathenia Gravis an auto immune condition.  It takes two to three weeks to get the blood tests back.   The eyelid problem can be partially corrected with come and go surgery.  If I have it I will probabally go to Stanford to see a  neurologist specialist for treatment.  If so I will take medication and may have the Thymus removed.  The Opthamolgist said it is a very rare disease with muscle weakness.  Not a death sentence but may restrict my future lifestyle.   Thanks to Grubstake I finally found a doctor to diagnose it after several months with I don't know answers  Again your prayers are appreciated.......
    • I was wondering EDGE, if the culprits who robbed the train at Gage, were denizens of the CHANCE City mining camp, by any chance? It seems to make sense that they could have had local connections, and it sure appears that it was a pretty rough area. Somebody went to considerable trouble of assembling 7 or more cohorts to derail, and rob a train. The whole story, including the minimal amount of money taken sounds like a positive press release intended to conceal the true facts of the case. And, personally, I can't see 7 riders staying together heading North in a straight line (more or less) and allowing themselves to run into the Calvary detail. Pretty strange.
    • With regards to the  factor, I apologize for any confusion and beg your indulgence, since my intent was not to deceive but merely to discourage further sniping from the usual suspect(s).
    • I was approached while I was digging a detector hit on the California coast by a Game Officer, He asked me what I was doing?I looked (past my detector)and up  at him and replied "I am Fishing" he pulled out his pen and began writing, He then asked what I was fishing for? I replied " steel head that is what the detectors is for!" he got offended and told me I could not detect on the beach. I asked him what law forbids it and he could not answer the question.  He made a few long radio calls and went away mad! I had already checked the laws regarding that beach and there was nothing prohibiting metal detecting below the high tide mark on that state beach. I am making two points here, first laws are different everywhere you go so you have to research your location to be safe! The second point I am making is that when government or it's agents give me Stupid, I give it right back to them! I call it the Forest Gump Defense!. 
    • Ronald Regan engaged this very debate during his Presidency when he pardoned his friend whom was cited on BLM land for  picking up an arrow head he spotted while riding his horse! Surface collecting is as American as baseball and apple pie according to him! it is one of the many reasons I still salute his picture every time I pass by! FYI He was also fond of chopping wood and chainsaw carving.
