    Yes, I did see at least one other post you made at another site while searching as I did an image search. The image search did turn up quite a few similarities, but as I stated above yours seems to...

    That's quite the unusual button! Some of the oddities being the filled back, 12 start and circle orientation over the eagle, the feathers not attached to anything, the hooked beak and crest on the...

    Certainly some nice finds, and good potential for sure. Yeah, waders help, especially if like mine - they're 5mm neoprene with insulated boots rated for -20F. Awesome for those water hunts in...

    I don't know if it's exactly "hall of fame" material but that old zoo site sure did have a lot of hot spots even after years of hunters pounding it well before I got there. The trick mostly was to...

    Very nice Jared! Sites like that are hard to come by any more, but they are out there. The area may have some gold, but I look at the historic wealth of the area and of those likely to have been...

    My Merc site I was only at the one time because now it's a commercial building. I have no idea how many times I've been to the old zoo, but countless over the last several years. The old zoo is vast,...

    Some nice goodies for sure. Finds have really been getting slim in our region lately as I think I only have maybe 2 or 3 wheaties this year. Even water hunting the lake last week only netted a single...

    Congrats on a great milestone! I had not heard of the Manticore until now but checked it out. I think once it's released I might finally have an excuse to upgrade from my CTX3030.

    Congrats on the finds. :) That silver ring is quite the chunker! Odd year for water hunting for me too. So far only finding a big pouch of pull tabs and a lone clad quarter.

    Very nice finds and that LC is in fantastic shape, congrats!

    Judging by the number of posts (or lack thereof) finds have become quite few and far between for everyone. Glad to see there's still...

    Very cool find! Great history and fantastic save for sure. It looks to me like a legend plate that would have been mounted on a picture frame or under a painting.

    That's another tough call. One for sure would be the first ever site I detected at an old farm site that was being razed for a commercial development. The barn had fallen in on itself and the house...

    There's only 2 solutions I know of if selling coins. First is to have the most potentially valuable coins sent in to a grading service such as PCGS. That way they are graded and registered, which...

    I went through the same thing some years ago. Thought I have a nice collection of silver coins and even some old coppers that according to the coin books were valuable. Coin dealer looked at...

    That's amazing Menzl !! That bayonet is in beautiful condition for being outdoors for so long, and even the bottles and pottery shows such a wide range of history being exposed.

    Nicely done Jared! It's really tough to find good spots recently, much less places where there might still be gold. I'm guessing there's likely more than a few gold signet rings around there...

    Wow Jared, that's a really sweet looking ring! You're right, seeing gold in the scoop is quite a rush. On the flip side is seeing gold and once in hand having the letdown of being fake.
