Several ounces of Nuggets and Pickers from throughout Indiana, Illinois and Ohio
A small bedrock pothole produced these old coins and gold, including an 1802 silver Spanish “1 real” (6-04-2005)
Some of my best “Midwest” nuggets, two largest weigh 3.1 dwt. & 3.0 dwt.
A good day dredging on Big Pine Creek. Gold, native copper and a diamond ring. (2003)
A small gold/quartz nugget found while metal detecting at an Indiana stone quarry. (1995)
Can you spot the gold in all that lead?
1893 Barber dime panned downstream from an old bridge.
Dredging with my 4” on Deer Creek with two of my favorite dredge tenders, Sarah and Jessica. A great family activity! (2003)
A very small “Indiana” diamond I found in some of my dredge cons.
10.5 lb. “Indiana” Copper Nugget - acid cleaned.
A nice white quartz geode from southern Indiana.
