It was about 6 inches deep.

Beautiful scenery, Michael.

The transparency of that ice reminds me of glacier lake ice, no pollution. Lot of beach to explore. :tu:

Nice finds! Agree, John (Geobound) should get up there soon, the place is loaded with fishies. :lmfao:

Looks like a match on the Harp, but the rest looks kinda sketchy. Great find at any rate! Traveled far! How deep was it?

I would say that you guess is pretty spot on. :tu:

Sometimes when I can't make out the details of a coin I put it on my scanner and copy it. It helps bring in the clarity a bit better, but it also allows me to trace over top of it a real coin.

Great find for sure even if there is little detail left. :clap:

:blahblah: :butt3:

Aside from the fact that it looks like an absolutely fantastic day, with great finds and beautiful scenery, who would want to detect there anyway?? :hehe:

I'm really disappointed that I won't be able to make it in a few weeks Micheal, but it is for sure on my radar to make it out there soon. When does the water start to rise again??

I love the photo of the ice, it actually looks like sections of broken glass.

The marble picture is a good one and had it been done with a bit more background, it would have made a great puzzle.........something to think about. :?:

I am however confused with the one item you've taken a picture of..........it's the last one, what is that? It appears to be a 1920 coin, but I've never seen one before?? :dunno:
