    They separate the men from the boys. Nicest thing about winter in Michigan is most of the annoying people left in the fall!

    So I hit 2 of my favorite Lake Michigan beaches over the last week and the currents must have shifted because both of them are filling with sand. Bummer, they are more than likely shot until spring.

    But Friday December 1 I did manage to scoop up an iPhone 6 plus out of the mush.
    Even water damaged they can bring a good scrap price. Feel free to bid it up for me! . Arock.gif

    Nope. I don't have a charger for it anyway and I ain't buying one.

    I did scoop an iPhone 4 out of a lake a couple years ago and let it sit for a month or so with the holes side down so it could drain. I sold it to a co worker for $20 who wanted the glass for his iPhone 4.
    He plugged it in and it fired right up. It was a college kids phone and the pictures on it were all super tame and non personal.

    So the kid cleaned the pictures out of it before tossing it in the lake and claiming he lost it.

    Any computer usb port will charge it. It’s the micro cable you need. Probable the kid down the block has one...?

    Not interested, besides it's like a Christmas present for the person who buys it from me.
    Wouldn't want to ruin their surprise.
    They don't know what treasures are inside until they open it and look!

    I have another iPhone out in the pole barn I found this spring. It's smaller and is in rough shape but the glass is intact.
    I should list that one too.

    GOLD #27 2017

    I had a great day at Lake Michigan today! Managed to find a couple troughs with targets and this beauty was in one of them!
    1914 HHS class ring I am guessing Holland High School because that city is nearby and the high school dates back to 1848.

    Oldest class ring for me by several years too. This girl graduated from high school 103 years ago!

    Major cold kicks in Saturday so this was a nice way to end the 2017 season for me.
    I will be adding some year end and career Gold totals when I get bored this winter.

    Thanks for looking and following along!

    Donate it to the local historical society and have them give you a number way above what you'd get on eBay and take the massive deduction on your taxes.

    That is a great idea! I thought of putting it on ebay with the idea an alumni would get it for a museum. I am sure those dutch folks would love to have it on display.
    Holland is a pretty tight knit small city.

    Lots of tax case law to support your deduction too. Somewhere a IRS apparatchik is cringing right now.

    I did this with some sterling silver horse trophies I caught cheap in an auction years ago. They were from Camden, SC in the late 1800s.
    FIRST, I put an ad in the Columbia, SC news paper ( the major newspaper of SC) and sold a couple back to equestrian clubs in Camden, SC.
    I had no takers for three others so I took them to the Kentucky Horse Park outside of Lexington. I told the "appraiser" I got $250.00 ea for two I sent back to their origin in SC. The "appraiser" wrote me up a document for an $850.00 Donation with a clarification I give up all rights to the trophies donated. - NO PROBLEM.

    They were on display for awhile but eventually relegated to warehousing as these were not Thoroughbred Trophies and NOT made of gold that all the trophies on display were. It was nice to see while it lasted.

    Irons, I was just thinkin' ( which dangerous most of the time):
    Why don't you put some of your finds here on GIM ?
    I know I wouldn't mind owning a "Brother Irons Find" in my "Food Stamp Price Range" that is. :oriental:

    Heck if you see me post something you want just let me know. I am more than happy to sell jewelry for melt.
    Do you like wristwatches? I have a Fossil black stainless beauty freshly scooped from Lake Michigan last November.
    It is sitting right here under my monitor running like the day it was made.

    It could be yours for the low low price of free!
