    It's in a alternate universe. Happens to my picks all the time. It will reappear, when it's damn well ready.

    I think thenBGibbons peso was/is silver and some of the other Mexican coinage copper, so a magnet is not going to help with the search.

    I ordered picks made from three different coins/metals from a fellow in UK. They should be here any day...looking forward to trying them out. This guy:

    I just bought 5 hawaii picks on vaca, just a souvenir, and getting to my room I pull out my room card and I hear a pick hit the ground. I look around, nothing. Put bags in the room, crawl around, nothing. Maybe it's in the bags? Pull everything out. Shake out shirt, towels, papers, check bag corners, nothing. Family comes in. Yell at them to be careful, look around. Check their shoes. Then it hits me. I take off my tivas. There it is in my shoe.
    Think smart and think stupid. The pick is where they intersect :)

    Back in the 70s, I had hand-me-down bell bottom pants from a tall cousin with large cuffs. I once dropped a quarter for school lunch - and spent 10 minutes searching until I finally found it in the cuff.

    Thanks for that memory.

    I'm LMAO at the idea of disassembling a recliner chair to retrieve a favorite guitar pick. :lol:

    Pics if it happens!!
    But seriously — good luck, TGT! :)

    Before you disassemble the chair think about it for awhile. It might not be in the chair.

    Skip the sock, and just put a fresh bag in the vacuum cleaner, which will give you the optimum suction you need to retrieve the treasured pic.

    In my house it would have squirted out of my hand, then changed directions to move laterally about 25 feet so it could drop into a floor register across the room and hide in the ductwork. If your house has underfloor ducts, better start taking them apart. By the time you make it to the HVAC unit you’ll have found it, whether it’s in the ducts or not.
