    2011, My first year.

    This year was full of surprises for me. I've really enjoyed this new hobby. Metal detecting Miami elsewhere than the beaches is probably kind of perverse,
    but I found exploring the city interesting. Here are what I think were my more interesting finds.

    These are all silver items. All the rings, except the smallest one; the hoop earrings; ; the vermeil bracelet; the Chi Rho charm - are marked sterling or 925.
    The vintage "button" earring, the Christ pendant, the hash pipe, the garnet hippie eye thing, and the small ring are unmarked, but all of those tested sterling with acid.
    The little gold earring is actually a broken piece, 18k.
    The stud is Zc and silver.
    the finger rosary is gold-washed. the little fish is heavy plated.
    The dark object is an 1890 Indian Head penny. Absolutely never thought I'd find one of those in Miami! Actually I found it the 1st week of 2012, sorry.
    I confess I also found the Sacred Heart Jesus New Years day and the Micky mouse charm a day later. I didn't want to leave them out for a whole 'nother year.

    All the silver dimes I dug up this year. That Barber dime was totally unexpected!

    Rollfast bicycle badge. It's a collectible, and sold on ebay $7.00.

    Odd bronze dagger dug up in Brickell area of miami. Sold on eBay $58.

    bronze ladle handle or haft for tool or weapon, not sure, Brickell

    What you see here is about 5 hours work back in October, searching and digging in Metro Miami Fl. (Sold all my brass and copper for the year for $30.)

    Another collectible bicycle badge sold on eBay, $6.71

    Feng Shui type item, sold on Etsy $6.73

    Yet another collectible bicycle badge sold on eBay, and other finds from a 3 week period, I think in September. I also sold the Bronze finger rosary on Etsy, $7.80, it was issued by the Vatican department that once had charge of the Inquisition.

    4 English 1 pound coins found at a basketball court, gave them to my sister going to London

    Collectible sprinkler, patented 1910, sold on Etsy $28.44, found in Miami

    Chinese coin from park, lost it when we moved.

    1920's silver-plated Marmon auto hubcap

    Marine SS shackle sold on eBay $4.74

    My first collectible find, Smoky Bear ring, sold on eBay, $7.06.

    Also, 2 Buffalo nickels!
    22 rolls copper Memorial cents, and 156 wheaties.
    Roll hunting and just asking the gals at the bank what they had in the drawer, i found 7 silver Kennedies, 3 of them 90%, and 3 Rosies and one Liberty half.

    I also dug up one of these Smokey rings at a local schoolyard here in Wise, VA. Unfortunately it is missing the actual ring, but Smokey is in great shape! It's always neat to see people digging up the same stuff 13 hours away! Really great finds!
