Pretty neat finds. Makes me want to get out and go. Had a nice day for it today but the ground is frozen. I could surface hunt but those good signals I have to pass up just get to me :'( Thanks for the post.
Outstanding find Steve. 8) 8) 8) 8)I love that beautiful Eastern Star pin. 🙂 🙂Now that is worth well over the spot price for gold.I personally wish for a really nice Masonic ring,hopefully and eventually it might happen with a bit of luck.
