    Re: Washington State Treasures????

    I just got 4 new metal Detectors the Ace 250, XJ9 treasure Hunter, Whites 2 Coin Hunter, and a old Garrett treasure hunter, when I go to a certain park in Everett Washington, they all constantly go off beeping and flashing the ground is as hard as cement! I pretty new at this and when I find one I really like I will sell or trade the other 3, any suggestions

    Re: Washington State Treasures????

    Being They all do it, & if It's Mainly In this Park, I'd Say Either The Ground Is VERY Trashy, Or The Iron Content Is Very High.

    Normaly Iron Content, Should Just Make it Imposable To Keep a Audable Tone.

    So I'd Say More Then Likely, The park May Be Built Over A Dump, Or Everyne Used It HEAVY.

    Re: Washington State Treasures????

    Ok Jeff,
    Great work on 62's home town and area. Now all I need is for you to do that for me. Any treasure leads for Whitley County, Laurel County or Knox of South East Kentucky. I'm real close to the state line so something in Tn could work also. I have been reading about the J smith silver mine. I live about an hours drive from it's many locations.


    Thanks for any info

    Re: Washington State Treasures????

    Well Kermit,

    Laurel? County :

    ? ?Before Being attacked By Indians in 1784,? The McNitt Party, Buried Their Valuables, Somewhere Along The Laurel River, Near LONDON, In The Levi Jackson Wilderness State Park.
    Are State Parks Open To Detecting In Your State ?
    You May Wanna Research This One. Supposedly The Survivors Returned But Were Never Able To Relocate Their Burial Spot.

    BELL COUNTY

    A Paymaster for The Union, Supposedly Thru $3,000,000.00 in Gold & Silver Bars in the Big Sandy near Pineville. He was Being Chased at the Time By Confederates.
    In the 1920's Some Silver Bars Were Found in the Area.

    There Is A Lost Silver Mine & Treasure in the area Of PINE MOUNTAIN. Supposedly $250,000.00 in Silver Coins & Minted Bars In the Mine.

    A Bag Containing $3000.00 Near PIOLET ROCK, Near APEX, in Clark Co.

    Near Winchester CHEROKEE INDIANS hid a Cache of Silver & Gold Coins They Stole In Raids on Settlements in the 1820's

    HOPEFULLY one Of These Would Be Worth Some More Research

    Re: Washington State Treasures????

    The Park was built over a dump I'll bet that is why the ground is so hard packed and I find so much junk like glass, metal chips, etc... Thanks so much for the input.. I'm still working out the bugs on the new Metal Detectors I believe this just take experience-I like to jump right in and start finding Coins and relics but, this just doesn't happen any advice?

    Re: Washington State Treasures????

    Do You Have A Yard ?

    These Are Usually The Best Place to Start.

    Being You Have 4 Detectors, I'd Start With The Simplest One.

    & work My Way Up.

    Once I'v Pushed Them All To the Limit in My Yard, I'd Pick the One I like The Most & ONLY use That one.

    It Is MUCH EASIER, To Learn The Slight Signals, & Whispers A detector Gives To DEEP OLD coins,

    IF you Use the Same One All the Time.

    Re: Washington State Treasures????

    No, I do not have a yard but, I have friends I will try this, The simplest WOW- Ace 250, XJ9 Treasure Hunter, Whites Classic 2, and an old 1980's dfx Garrett metal Detector, they are all tough, but the funnest is the Ace 250 they are all fun I just need practice along with work panning and detecting not enough hours in a day!!!! Thank you any other suggestions
    Sincerely,
    Jeff

    Re: Washington State Treasures????

    Jeff,
    Thanks for all the info. I live right in the middle of most of the things you listed. I think I need to make a list. I have been to the place where the Mcnitt party was killed and buried. It's a very small and old grave yard right in the middle of the Levi Jackson state park. I'm going to give them a call just in case but my guess is no detecting. I'm real close to pine Mt. I hunted the area for deer etc as a kid. That sounds like it's worth looking into. No one would ever say anything about hunting digging on that mountian. It's way back in the sticks.

    again thanks for the info.......Kermit

    State Parks Here In PA are Open To Detecting, Hopefully Yours Are Also.

    Good Luck
