Buried under years of oak leaves...
(San Jose, CA, USA)
unknown golden piece
My dad has 5 acres on a hillside on the outskirts of San Juan Bautista, CA. I have spent time all my life on that hillside, 40 + years. I love exploring creeks and beaches. I've actually become quite a rock hound in my adult years. Though in the last 5 or so years I have been caught up in the history of events and stories surrounding my dads property. And its pretty much because of some mysterious metal object sticking out of the mulch of oak leaves which I haven't figured out how to dig up yet. Mainly because Im too chicken to walk out onto the soft area not knowing if Im going to fall into some unknown debris below. The ground is very soft. But I have uncovered a old coil springs to a mattress, rusted/deteriorating tins of black tar, couple old water kettles, and a interesting gold tone object that I have no idea what its from. Maybe someone out there has an idea.
