    I use to like the show but it is ruining it for me, and you. I posted an ad on Craigslist and someone emailed me about the show, and if I would bring equipment and stuff (OMG, im only 15), and such. I told them no, and I definitly wont be yelling "BOOM BABY" in their backyard. Savage just pisses me off, he dosen't care about the history, just the $$$. If at any time when your digging and find something cool and the very first thing you think is "What's it worth" you should break your metal detector and jump off a cliff. I mean, yea I love finding things worth money, but I do it mainly for the history. If it wasn't for us, these relics and coins would just rot in the ground and never be seen again.

    I'll have to agree with Keppy, it's always about the Benjamin's

    Let's be realistic for a minute. I've seen many people here talking about their so called saving history, but for who Surely some will donate their items to a museum, or at least put them on loan for a while. Keeping an item on your shelve collecting dust is "not saving" history in my book. Keeping it for yourself is the same as cashing it in for a for bucks.

    I have never watched any of the new shows about Metal Detecting, so I have no comment on them.
    As far as Everyone is in it for the Money? WRONG, I have Never Sold a thing that I have Found other then the scrap copper and brass.
    I have gave away a lot of things to property owners and friends and I have returned others to there owners. Never Sold or even traded it.
    So please speak for your selves on that one, If I need the Money that bad? I add another Job to the list! Thank You.
    Happy Hunting

    Well I for one am definitely not in it for the money. I have sold a few things now and then, but I never leave the house with dollar signs in my eyes.

    No, but like many of us you probably wait until you get home to see those dollar signs

    well the thing is, and I bet this holds true for most of us...... 95% of what I dig has no real monetary value, and of the 5% that does, it's not "woohoo I'm rich" kinds of values. And yeah I research my finds, but more just out of curiosity than anything else. When I do find something worth a few bucks , I definitely enjoy it, and tell my friends about it, but the thought of "where can I sell this" is not on my mind.

    I do spend all the modern change I find, and would definitely cash in on jewelry right now, but that's just because I could really use the money more than I could use a ring in a drawer that I'll never wear. As far as relic type finds, I keep them if it's something that interests me, some things I give away now and then, and if there's someone out there collecting something I have and don't really care to keep, sure I'll sell it to them. Better to have it in the hands of someone who will appreciate it, than just laying in a box in my storage.

    Thank you for that. I am the same way. I would never hunt with someone who is in it for money.

    The whole concept of treasure hunting is to get rich. That show on spike is a joke...there is no way they get the prices you see at the end of their show. And how many of us could go out and video our digs and get 1/10th of what they find in a year let alone in a week. Tonight for example they supposedly found a 1907 high relief $20 St. gaudens gold coin...worth $30,000 (so Ric said). It would have to be MS63 to get that kind of money and be in a high end auction that was advertised for about 3 or 4 months. We know it's a joke but John Q. Public sees this and thinks thats how we all are.

    The show is a slap in the face to all of us who do it for a hobby and it will cause some doors to be slammed in our faces. But a couple years from now it'll be all over and it will be back to business as usual for the most part.

    As for saying you are not in it for the money Why else would you call it "treasure" hunting? Maybe you don't sell anything you find but to say you don't want to find $$$ is crazy. As long as people have been hiding treasure there have been treasure hunters. Looters and grave robbers are a different story but if you own a metal detector you are looking for valuable objects...if not why does eveyone hate pulltabs so much?

    I like the history and love to find non valuable items that tell a story but get real...all the beach hunters and coin shooters out there are trying to find items that are worth big bucks. If it offends some of you so much maybe you should find a site called history.com or relic.com. This is TREASURENET.COM! If I find a gold ring that will pay my bills for a month or two...I'll take the cash from the first one of you that would rather have a ring that you can keep in a box hidden away.

    I'm sorry if I offended anyone with this post but the arguement about selling finds or keeping them until you die is so old. It's still a free country and you can do whatever you like with what you find and no one should look down on or criticize anyone for what they do with theirs.

    I don't treasure hunt. I do go detecting. I put my stuff on display on a shelf. It will stay that way till I go off the count. Then it most likely will be sold by some of the still living.

    I don't care if anyone else sells there stuff. I just won't hunt or share my sites with you.

    I think so as well. This show is completely staged BS. I don't believe they found ANY of that stuff.
    Take this crap off the air.
