  4. Congrats Donnie B, you won the Medieval Silver Coin!

    I wanted to keep this fair so I drank 6 beers until everything was blurry and I couldn't read the names. I threw all the scraps of paper up in the air and 30 minutes later when I woke up I picked one...

    John, we are always detecting in the forest pretty much away from all modern activity. Almost all the iron I find (even nails) are several hundred years old to 2,000 years old. I keep the more...

    There's an old expression, "buy cheap, buy twice." If you buy the Chinese version then in very short order you'll be buying a Garrett (and wishing you never bought the first one).

    New Book for my Collection

    I saw this book listed for only $123 on eBay so I clicked "buy it now!" It's in great condition and looks like it was hardly ever opened. They typically sell for much more and I am tickled pink with...

    That's something I have never found is a monopoly game piece! I was detecting with someone (Don or Tony?) and he found the WW1 cannon piece. I would like to find one of them or the battleship! ...

    You are right Tony. I often find medieval iron relics just laying on stumps or on the ground where other detectorists discarded them! I tell the guys to give me any iron they dig. If it's junk,...

    Great finds! I LOVE the pocket knife. If it were mine I would hit it with some electrolysis (but not too much) and wax it til it shined just a bit! The milk token is fairly common with cow farms. ...

    What's your detecting "white whale?"

    I thought this might be a fun thread to start! For me, my white whale is a 1955 Rosie. I have found hundreds of silver Rosies but never a 1955!!! I filled two dime books but both are missing the...
