So I am out this AM detecting near a creek not far from home when all of a sudden I look up and I am staring at a cop walking my way. He comes up and asks me what I was doing. I explained myself to him and he just looks at me like I am strange. He told me he got a call that someone was out here digging.
I showed him some of my finds and he tells me that that was pretty neat. So I asked the guy if he wanted to try. He said sure. I showed him what to do and in less the six or seven swings he got a hit. I look at the VDI and it's a 83. I dug it up for him and it's a clad quarter. He told he has to get into this and get a detector. He told me to have a nice day and left. LOL

I'm sure he appreciated not running into someone who thought he was the enemy. Nice job promoting the hobby.

Sounds like what occurs quite often with Geocaching.

Well done! Your attitude must have put him at ease,not acting as you were doing anything you shouldn,t. I,ve been watched a couple times this year but a cheerfull wave ended it. Looking forward to an approach like yours. Thanks for sharing.
Hey , I.don,t have all the answers but sometimes coffee tastes better over an open fire.

I LOVE it!

Now you can tell everyone that you found a Copper Quarter!
That,s the way to do it. Another LEO on our side.

IT COULD BE A VALUABLE PRIZE "YOU NEVER KNOW"

"...Let no one know what,were or when..."

Former police, 25 years, and when I saw the title I thought, 'Oh no, here it comes again!' Glad you ran into the 99% of us who are able to prioritize and differentiate a crime from a harmless recreational activity. Good post, I liked it. Course that 1% does get around and are way more flamboyant, so they usually get your attention.
