Silver and teeth

(1)

Being that my Internet has been down for about 2 weeks now I haven't had time to post this trip. It started with some scattered showers at work. Despite the weather I wanted to try my luck at the beach. It had been almost a month since my last trip and I was hoping something new fell. Johnny met me in the parking lot and we walked down. We were finding some ordinary stuff when I noticed a new fall. Not to big but perfect size. All the RIGHT  material had blown out of the cliff-face. We spent some time poking around. I ended up finding a great meg. A couple porpoise teeth. A few hammerheads, a cow and some basic teeth.

 

     The next day I made the trip again. Not so lucky this time. All the good stuff was now covered up with 5 feet of Choptank material-(which is for the most part worthless). I gave it my best try but was unable to locate anything of size.

 

     The random coins at the bottom were found with a metal detector behind my job site in Columbia, MD. My best finds of the year so far.

 

    It was a lovely day outside today, with temps in the upper 70s!  I went back to the same beach but the finds were minimal. A exception was a zone 4 tiger shark and porpoise ear bone. A sharpnose (rare for me) and a sympheseal G. Contortus, and a rather large fish tail bone.

Hope all you guys did well in Aurora.

The teeth are very nice. I think those two coins are really nice finds as well. Looks like they are both in very good shape. Thanks for the post Content Quality : 10 of 10

If that is the same fall that I'm thinking of than I got there a few days late because all that choptank was on top already. I'm glad it came down while you weren't there. I looked but did not find. On the same day 2 small but pretty megs were found nearby. Great Meg, and you had to be pretty happy with your detecting trip as well. Now you have to shoot for surf and turf, (a meg and a real on the same day) Hmmmm Content Quality : 10 of 10
