It was a cold day in November 2013. I had gone to the lake dressed in wet suit and was just wandering along the shoreline with my underwater White’s Surf Master. The draw down of the lake had already begun as it normally does every winter. The shoreline was out about 12 feet. It was cold, cold, cold!! I was out at a depth of about 3 feet. For this target, White’s picked up a weak signal. As I dug with my sand scoop, the signal got stronger and stronger. The target was down about 10 inches and after quite a long dig, this treasure showed up. I had no idea what it was but recognized the Piere Cardin brand name. After searching on eBay, someone suggested it looked like a chop stick. Sure enough, when I searched for a Piere Cardin chopstick, up popped the exact same object. A set is worth $34.95, but alas, I only found one. And yes, I did go back looking for the second one.
