    WOODSTOCK anyone ever detect it?

    Love watching the original woodstock dvds, good music and cool old interviews. Just curious if anyone has ever detected the site the festival was at

    That's a great idea! With all the mud when the concert occurred I'm sure there is a small fortune!

    Interesting idea but I don't think I would want anything from that mess.

    I think it would be a waste of time. I mean, are you really excited about clad coins that would have been in circulation in 1969 ? Although there was a ton of people there, yet it was only for a single weekend (and thrashed with trash as you can see from the "after" pix). Seems to me you'd be better off going to a typical county park or beach where....... hundreds of persons have routinely gone, every weekend, for 50 or 100 yrs. Doing the math, I think in a single year the average park or school or beach or whatever ends up getting the same amount of foot-traffic-persons.

    but ... whatever.

    If you could get permission, I think it would be an interesting place to detect. Four years after the end of silver coins isn't much, and I'd been some was lost. Who knows that else is lying in that grass.

    I'd detect it if given the chance, you could probably sell all the trash stuff on ebay as mementos...

    I would for sure. Not just because of Woodstock but probably still an old field. Found lots of cool old stuff in old fields

    I just looked up the price of gold per ounce in 1969 and it was around $35.00-41.00 and silver looks like it was a dollar or two. Gotta be some gold and silver jewelry. I'm sure you would be sifting a lot of trash to get whatever goodies might be there.

    I've thought about it before. Keep in mind what stopped me. This was in 1969 Woodstock was full of hippies, they shared what little things they had... All you'll find is hash pipes and and roach clips maybe a little clad. Again everyone was a broke hippy most things were shared... Jewelry was mostly beads, you may find some nice silver jewelry though. Hippies did not get rich until they got older and Woodstock was long over.

    Keep @ it and HH !!

    I don't think there'd be much of anything. Weren't most of them running around naked?

    Now this is a very entertaining thread ! I'm sure I've never seen anyone put this question forward until now . I strongly disagree with
    the earlier posts that were saying- no it's just dope pipes and roach clips - or the other that said hippies had no money - HOGWASH !
    many of these kids were in fact solidly middle class ! Best estimates place the population for the WEEKEND at @ 400,000 !!!
    that's like a medium sized city !. There would be massive jewelry losses- rings, pendants , chains - additionally the clad count would be
    staggering . I think it's safe to say that in 1969 there were still massive numbers of silver dimes and quarters circulating - I was collecting
    coins by that time for about 5 years - and I remember seeing them in grocery store tills regularly into the early 70's anyway .
