Finds of the Month Rules
1. All entries must be deposited in the display case by 7:30pm. NO EXCEPTIONS. (The reason is
two fold, this rule PROTECTS the security of all items entered and REDUCES prejudging of any one category).
items to be judged must have been dug within the time period following the last meeting. (Exceptions: If a member missed
the last meeting(s) he may enter any items in the next meeting attended. In addition if a member was prevented from placing
any item in competition because of arriving after the 7:30 pm deadline he may enter in the next meeting).
items will be returned to their owners at the conclusion of the meeting.
4. Only ONE item may
be entered in each category by any one member. (Exception-items dug in the same hole may be entered as a cache).
club member conducting the Finds of the Month (currently Todd Olson) has the FINAL decision as to which category an item is
to be placed in.
6. Non-dated coins may be submitted PROVIDED there is sufficient detail to place them into a specific
time range ie. no date but known British King (George I)
7. Any platinum finds may be placed in a gold category
at the discretion of the member in charge ie. a platinum ring competes in Gold Jewelry.
