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.

Bill Southern

    • Bedrock Bob  is exactly right , If I can get a digging bar under it it can be moved.  I have moved small buildings as he described . I spent many years as the deck boss on on a ship with a 50 ton boom rigged with a 4 sheave double block , it was slow though. We routinely moved 18,000 LB concrete anchors on deck or setting on the ground with big pry bars and setting them on 2" x 4" blocks and skidding them around  with 8 foot pry bars, it was slow but safe.  Also years back when Stanton was Stanton ,Morlock showed up with a griphoist , I don't remember the model but we used it to move every boulder in the creek below the club house . Some of them were huge ! Our method was to dredge out a hole next to it on the side we wanted to roll it , get some truck tire chains below the center of gravity and roll it over in to the new hole. Always put a beer can in the new hole to prove to later people that we had moved it. I don't remember that we found much gold but had a ball in later years when My wife Polly and I were the caretakers there and I would tell people that a beer can was under the big rocks A lot of them didn't believe it and those things had really settled in after a couple of monsoons ! Tom and Norma ( Who in my opinion was the best caretakers Stanton ever had and that I got hired to run Stanton when I got tired of it) can vouch for this story as can Morlock who sold me the grip hoist. I had pictures but all off them burned , but someone out in this old world has some pictures and I sure would like to find a copy ! The griphoist never failed but sometimes the anchor point was a problem.  
    • Frigging awesome!! Cant beat that at all guys!
    • Pretty much same area. Just moving out from the main area and also hunting the private property around there.
    • Good for both of you ! I haven't been out for so long I forget when it was but I am shortly changing that. Cane and all! Tell Tom to stick with it! The gold god has a nuggy out there with his name on it .
