    I totally like & get your attitude. Many of the owners we share our knowledge & history with want VERY LITTLE. They are happy that we share our finds & experience with them. I go away happy that I have 'taught' them something they didn't know about their land, & it cost me a couple of buttons, but at least I did it openly & honestly.

    Good, I KNOW you will do yourself proud, & have a great collection to prove it.

If its the PO is a person I know then I have no problem with showing them anything or even letting them have a thing or two. Its the people I don't know are the ones I don't show everything too...over the years I have had some people want to keep the clad I've found in their yards...not that I care about clad but it just seems kind of selfish to me.
    Excuses, you sound like many broken records I have heard before. You defend your way & I will keep smiling. Because until YOU ACTUALLY show them EVERYTHING, you have little or NO EXPERIENCE to share.(just WHAT IF's) You do yours & I will do mine.

    If they are as straight up as you, they will be happy if you can return it. If you can't I'm sure they will be happy you can keep it. Because MOST reasonable people reward those that do good, if you show them, like many don't & your interested in getting it back to those that lost it, then you will be happy & rewared. TRUST ME.
    If you return it to the owners because they lost it, I hope you feel GREAT how ever much it might have been worth on the market.

    What world do you live in guy? Fantasy world? I would like to think that most people are honest in my little part of this "fantasy world" but you know what? they are not ,,, i.e. oh i am so happy you found that valuable item "you just keep it" that (ain't going to happen) guy. and like i said in my previous post i let the landowner know (upfront) that i keep my finds, and i have no reason to detect private property where i know i can't keep my finds. And any metal detector hobbyist who says they want to give their finds to anyone (landowner) in my opinion is a (not being honest person) to put it softly.

    wow, the intensity of this discussion just blows me away. I have seen a multitude of property that I would love to hunt. I've asked a neighbor, who blew my off, and said his son has a metal detector. But I also have standing offers to detect some fabulous properties. I fully expect that my professional relationship with these people and a very straight forward verbal agreement to split to value of my monetary finds should suffice. I barely have time to hunt the tot lots, schools and parks in my neighborhood. I've only covered a small percentage of those. It would take me months to hunt all the properties that I have standing offers on.

    I talk to nearly everyone about MDing. I show off my finds and that leads to offers and permission to hunt. So I don't get to hunt my Neighbors Victorian, instead, I hunt a friends 191? house with a huge yard. My finds are not a profit making Enterprise, it's a hobby. If it pays for better equipment or my power bill, great. But it's still a hobby. I don't have to keep something to have the joy of finding it. It's the hunt and bragging rights.

    Just my two wheaties worth. Happy hunting to you all.

    I would like to make one statement about metal detecting. I am a relic hunter. I am not looking to find a treasure chest. i like looking (detecting for) relics in which most have no monetary value. I do not ask permission to search someones private property in hopes of finding their "ball canning jar full of gold coins", i ask permission in hopes of maybe finding old relics, i research the property in advance to see if it has any relic possibilities and then i ask permission ( and let the landowner know upfront that i keep my finds) and ask if there is any thing in particular they want me to look out for.

    mariposagold [QUOTE] agreement to split value of my monetary finds

    And who are you the "BOOM BABY" guy? you know that show is fake right? " agreement to split my value of monetary finds" (there is almost no value in the majority of relics found) unless you get real lucky and i don't.

    What really is the point of MD if your out there to just give it all away. Why not go to work and tell your boss you'll work for free and maybe some OT for no charge.
