    I'm guessing you mean surface finds while on a hunt.I picked up a rolex submariner that got pummeled by a snow plow.Still got $650.00 for parts.My first two mercs.Three buffalos.Gold wedding band and untold other jewelry.

    short answer is that everything I look for detecting I surface found at least once while hunting.Ski area hunts are always more about seeing than hearing.
    I dont care which machine you're gonna dig trash.
    an extra thousand bucks aint gonna solve that.

    Buffalo nickels, wheat pennies lots of modern clad, few bits of junk jewelry, gold nuggets, lost tools, paper bills..... pretty much anything can be specked with a sharp eye. Cant say how many times on a detect I bipped it then specked it.
    Everyone Believes they have gold buried in the back yard... small wonder so few ever look for it.

    A twenty dollar bill, with a snow blower, and it didn't shred it!

    I posted this a couple times already in the coins section, but I found a few goodies just by rooting around in my change jars:

    - Two dozen wheat pennies
    - 1943 war nickel, which is in great shape considering it was in circulation
    - Several Canadian pennies, nickels and dimes (one of the pennies says Georgivs VI 1952, which I never saw before)
    - A few nickels from the 40s and 50s
    - This bizarre silver-coated penny from 1971 (which I believe is from some kind of high school chemistry project where you dip a penny in boiling chemicals and it turns silver)
    - A huge pile of half-dollars that my aunt gave to me years ago, many of which are 90% silver. I couldn't find them for the longest time.
