    Metal Detecting
    I always try to stop by my parent's house after a weekend hunt to show my Mom the "treasures" I've found and this time she wanted to see how my metal detector worked. I got it out of my truck and was showing her the it worked when we got a nice sounding hit in their back yard. I dug a small plug and handed her my HF pin pointer to check the hole. You would have thought she had just found Amelia Earhart's airplane when this little ring came out of the ground We spent the rest of our time digging holes in the back yard...me with the detector and her with the pin pointer. They have lived in the house for just over 54 years and she had no idea who the owner of the sterling ring might be. It made her day as well as mine.Click image for larger version.

    well, since I don't see a note saying Moderators are disqualified, I'll add mine.
    You's can Ignore If we are excluded..... Right ?

    Although the 14K Gold 1/4 K Diamond Mason ring on My Profile. can
    be confirmed lost 1:41 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on June 17, 1948
    when United Airlines Flight 624, a Douglas DC-6 crashed outside of Aristes, Pennsylvania,
    and found by me on the 55th. anniversary year of the crash. is my most valuable find.

    My Best Find in my Mind was this Circa 1940s. Mills dime Slot Machine,
    that I found in a drained Lake with 4 dimes still in it.
    I was able to get the story that the police raided all the clubs in the area.
    then loaded the slots in a truck bed & used a sledge Hammer on them.
    then dumped the remains coins & all in the deepest part of the lake.
    though most of the people Laughed at me, saying it was all a fantasy

    this one, & pieces of others proved me right

    18th or early 19th century Masonic Jewel, solid gold (approx 14k). Hollow inside cavity. Found at the site of an 18th century church in South-Central Pennsylvania. Recover several LC's and an early cut silver from the same location.

    My favorite find to date would have to be my 1853 seated half dollar. Me and a buddy were detecting a location we call bullet hill. We were within speaking distance of each other when I got a nice 86 hit on my at pro. Before I could dig the hole he called me over to show me a big copper he just pulled. As I walked back to my signal I thought come on ground it's my turn and sure enough it was!

    Relic Hunting

    I Started this hobby on 3/10/2014. Really picked up hunting time after my purchase of an ATPro on the 27th of that month.
    Found a little bit of stuff but not untill July did I find my first CW bullet( Sharps Ringtail ).



    In Oct. and Sept. I had to be off work for medical reasons and my therapist told me to pursue my hobby daily to keep my mind busy.
    So about 9:00 am on Sept 4th I was sweeping a section of a local battle field when I get a Faint high tone with scratchy beginnings and endings.
    So I dug this up. 14" deep.

    I can date and time stamp the loss of this spur and what side lost it.

    On July 27th 1864 between 0600 and 0700
    Gen. Richard Gano with 600 Texas Cavalry ( including the Famed Gano Guards ) and Confederate Choctaw Indians
    Attacked 200 of the 6th Kansas Cavalry and 100 of the 4th Arkansas Infantry ( Arkansas Federals ) Commanded By Major David Mefford
    who had a large herd of horses on a big Prairie
    6 miles southwest of Fort Smith ( which was held by the Federals ).
    The battle lasted less than an hour with a Confederate victory.
    The interesting thing about this spur ( Tnet experts have told me it is a Texas pattern ) is it had been repaired by a Blacksmith and 2 holes drilled in the short end so that it could still be worn.

    Southern troops in the Indian Nation and Southwest Arkansas were very poor and ill armed and clothed. They took everything they could carry and tried to burn everything else.
    I love trying to get the history of the objects I find.
    Well thanks for reading and the entry.

    My passion is for hunting relic sites, as I feel the imprint of past lives often lingers there!
    Detectorists finds, are the background noise of antiquity!
    Don't question it ... just dig it!

    You all do have some nice finds and I hate to enter this one because.... well everybody's can't compare to this one!

    This horseshoe is the original shoe from the front left leg from Mr. Clarks horse. He lost it while going through Tennessee with Mr. Lewis. You know "The Lewis & Clark Expedition". I hate to brag but I also think I've found one from Lewis's horse from the right rear leg also. I just haven't confirmed yet. After I do these pair of shoes will be priceless as a pair. There are some imitation's around but I have the original's from some early famous explores. None of these shoes are for sale (well maybe?).

    I found these 13 points while digging a piece of buckshot from a buck and ball load at a Second Seminole War fort site. I first thought that I had found a milk glass bottle in the hole, but when I flipped it out...to my surprise...the first of these popped out! I recovered the buckshot ball, and moved on, but my dad convinced me to go back and check the hole for more...and I was soon pulling them out by the handful! It was a nice cache of points that hadn't been touched by man for thousands of years! The 3 broken ones had apparently, been broken while being made, and the bases were nowhere to be found, although I did find the flakes from their manufacture in the area. It was the day after Christmas 2012, but I can remember every detail like it was yesterday! A find of a lifetime, made all the better that I was able to share it with my dad, and our hunting buddy!

    My favorite find, but perhaps not my best, is a condition find. A King George the 2nd from 1734 in amazing dug condition for somethig that could have been in the ground for 280 years. Found it this year 13" under the ground with my CTX3030. Click image for larger version.
