I know there are not to many different claims here in the state of Texas that are close by for prospecting, so going to head out to the closest one to my home town of Dallas. If anyone has any tips I could use them. I know I am really going to enjoy getting out in nature.

It comes in it's own packaging .Would it lose value if you removed it from the packaging I think if you remove the packaging from a uncirculated mint coin it would lose some of it's value.

But, I now have a ton (figuratively) of the stuff and, if I just pitch it in the bin, isn't that the same thing as just putting it back in the river (more or less from an environmental standard) When I flyfish, I keep my cut line and ...
