    Where do you live that everyone is wearing $10,000 rings? I don't know anyone that has a $10,000 ring.

    Well in my case i would never get a banner ...... The reason is i never show or tell of my find's...... I know what i find and that is all that matters to me....... In my world my find's are my own business and no one elses .... Now if i was a dealer that would be a different story...... I would post my good finds and say i found this with this brand of detector...... Then i would hope you would buy that brand of detector from me.......... But since i am not a dealer no one needs to know what i find.....

    Wow. Are people really looking that hard for something to complain about?

    I'd much rather see new thumbnails up top, as long as they are worthy, to read about. Seeing the same 15 for six months or so would be, well, a bit boring.

    Just my .02. That and 4 bucks will get you a regular coffee at Starbucks.

    Same arguement pops up ever so often here, I have seen basically this same thread on here at least 4 times over the last 6 years.........




    HERE IS THE THING ABOUT RIGHTS, THEY'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE VOTED ON, THAT IS WHY THEY CALL THEM RIGHTS!

    "If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." --Samuel Adams

    Banner Finds (1)
    Ok here is my thoughts on the Banner. First there seems to be no rules any more about making the Banner and maybe there wasn't before. But I do know that you use too have a good many post before you were allowed too make the Banner. Now it seems like you can make it on your first post. So now the one hit wonders that come on and post great things just to play games will make the Banner. New members have made it now, so why not them. As far as rare , valuable etc. i am all for any kind of treasure making the Banner. I believe what hasn't been said is that the diamond rings are still being lost everyday, the older ancient coins and relics are no longer being lost, that too me is the only differance between the two, but they are both treasures. Rare also comes in all differant forms, take the Tiffany saucer I found last week. I have not seen too many tiffany items dug by anyone, so too me that is a rare event. What makes it more rare is the fact that I myself which doesn't always do took the time to dig a signal that blew out my ear drums which most all of us would not have dug. I don't know what made me do it, but it did pay off. Now i do have too say is that Tiffany saucer Banner worthy I didn't think so, but I do know it was rare too dig one up. So the moral of the story is treasure comes in all forms as well the find being rare.

    While I am on a roll I have always felt that we should have a Banner just for days that some one has a heck of a day digging, but yet doesn't have that one super find too make the Banner. Yet if you took the overall quality of all the finds a person made in their days hunt the sum of them would blow many Banner finds away.

    Ok note too all above was just my thoughts and not typed too get in any fights.

    Metal Detecting
    Hey tnetters, What is defined as a banner find? Is it getting the most votes? or is it finding items that are once in a life time finds? I feel like the "like button and all this added facebook crap additives to the tnet soup is getting to be to much. What ever happened to making and keeping something simple and consistent?

    metal Detecting is a lot like friendships:

    They both can be shallow or deep
    It takes practice to get it right
    Rarely give up on it, dust it off and try again
    Not taken it too seriously

    You see the old Tnet was really good ...... So good they had to change it so it would be like all the others not so good.......... And you are right the old Tnet was easy and simple that was why it was so good........ And you are right to much crap additives......

Only ever did the beaches once, when I was on holiday, I searched for a hour after breakfast three times, and found three Gold rings.

    and your 3 gold rings are worthy of a congrats here on the forum,a banner find......... maybe not. but if you ever had a look at Western & Eastern Treasures magazine Annual (best finds) finds you will see rings two, five, or 10 thousand bucks published because they are tough and a rare find.
    if they are good enough to make the annual finds for W&E treasures ................. they are surely worthy enough to make banner here on T Net

    Banner Finds (3)
    hi guys some silly comments in my eyes that have been made about "Treasure Finds" theres Two types of "Treasure hunters" in this hobbie one is in it for the value of the item you found and there other like me n million others are in it for the History! Too me when i found a 19th century buckle or a 17th century button thats "Treasure" in my eyes as it was lost the same ways as any modern items found. TREASURE FINDS aint just about GOLD or SILVER items with $$$$ its about digging up all types of history and metals. yes gold and silver are nice to find but theres more lovely items to be found which aint gold or silver but just as nice

    You can't treasure hunt for just gold or silver and there's many brass and copper items worth more because of rarity than even gold finds. Those who do aim to recover gold will find every other metal better and are just the ones not to be taken in by the doubtful benefits of I.D. displays.

    Perhaps you are right, but W&E is a US mag, andI would expect a lot of beach stuff be showed in it, I just can get my head around a mega bucks modern ring being rare...that's all. But I wouldn't throw one back either.

    No, Keppy, I am not saying that at all, I am simply saying the exact same discussion pops up here almost every year, usually started exactly the same way this one started and follows the same lines.....

    Beach and Shallow Water Hunting
    You know, it is interesting to see the diversity in our hobby. One thing I've noticed over the years is that most treasure hunters specialize in a specific area, i.e, prospecting, relic hunting, beach hunting, cache hunting, artifacts, etc. Some are in it for the history, some are in it for the value. What clearly stands out sometimes in discussions like this is a total lack of respect or support for the other guy or his personal area of interest and I believe that down through the years that has really hurt all of us. When I look up at that banner and see all the listed finds I see "unity", while many others only see the individual finds. The day we become so divided that we start breaking off into our own little clicks is the day we start losing it all. On man's trash is another man's treasure.....because that's the way it should be and needs to be.

    TH.... They all pop up again you know what detector... Then some one says what kind of hunting .... Then what ever detector they use they tell them that is the best one... And so on and so on ........On almost every subject...... But now we can talk about the Treasure hunting shows something new...... And they do have a good garage sale forum with Ebay & Amazon tossed in to it.......... You know on all the forums ours on Tnet and on others ....... We ask the same questions and then see the same answers........... But i guess we like it we keep doing it..............

    For those asking in earlier posts what finds up top currently do not belong up there... Well here is my opinion:

    1829 Bust Dime - It's not a particularly valuable coin and it has been scratched to heck. So now $10 coins make the banner? There is even a post in that thread asking how this common coin even made the banner and asked why people were voting for it.

    1739 King George - Sure, it's in nice condition. But there is nothing special about this coin either. This is the perfect example of a pretty picture making a common find a banner find. You might as well start putting up nice condition 1852 large cents as well if this coin can make it.

    This site has too many people voting banner that have never made great finds, so any time they see anything old they shout out "BANNER!"

    Now all of the other finds up there are deserving and should be up there, imo.
