    My uncle is a First Selectman a couple of towns south of me. He had a map of where some sewer covers were, but they were paved over a few years back. Nothing overloads a detector like a sewer cover.

    My wife was doing yard work and noticed her watch was missing. Knowing it probably went into the compost pit with the leaves, it took only a few minutes to find it.

    Had two couples that were skinning dipping early in the morning, think that I was going to shock the lake so they came running out as fast as they could! Didn't tell them otherwise...

    I remember it like it was yesterday. I'd been waiting on the bus all day, I had my brown paper bag, my Tesoro, and I was ready to play. Five cowgirls pulled up in a Ford F150 and asked me if I was looking for treasure. I said I surely was. Well, I've never seen a metal detector used to find that kind of "spot" before - or since!

    Used mine several times to scan Halloween candy at the PDs. One of my Chiefs wanted to try so he grabbed a little candy bar n swept it across the coil. Loud beep n he yells "Got one! Got one!" I could barely contain myself when I told him to take off his wedding band n try again. 😂 LOL

    I went back home to Topeka for my mom's retirement party last April. She has moles in her yard and some buzzing type stakes in the ground to repel them but the batteries went dead and she couldn't find them.
    She knew the general areas so it wasn't hard but I gave me an excuse to scan along the sidewalks too and I found a few old dimes and a couple wheats. She thought it was pretty cool.

    I was teasing my nephew about his new girlfriend and asking if she had any body piercings?

    They both of course said no. So when I grab my propointer, she turned beet red and ran out of the room.

    I guess that answers that?
    Treasure is where you find it, trash is where they left it.

    When I reclaim lumber and my detector finds any metals left in he wood. Saves good saw blades.
    Finds wires and pipes in walls.
    I've got some metal in my body. Maybe I'll see if I can detect titanium.

    Rings and property stakes for friends. My son bought a house with no idea where the septic tank was and found the lid quickly with the Tesoro Amigo i gave him over 20 years ago.

    A church near me was about to celebrate its 300th anniversary so they wanted to retrieve a time capsule that was buried in the 1970s. Since it was buried, they had put a new sidewalk in, pictures of that day 40 years ago were developed in reverse so everything looked backwards and add in that there was only 3 people there that were there to see it put in the ground. I thought it was going to be easy- not! Change was every where, pennies, dimes, nickel's, it looked like a movie, trenches/holes all over. they were taking turns digging in shifts, and deep, 4-5 feet deep. It was a 6" 8" piece of lead pipe, lead caps soldered on each end with a valve they used to put some inert gas into it with. The guys that put this together were phone company workers and Norwegian builders. They said burying it under the "Frost Line" in retrospect may have been going a bit overboard, I agreed with that statement. My machine wasn't any help, a half hour of looking and I was done. Just that week I had gotten my first ever pinpointer, a brand new garrett. on my hands and knees at the bottom of one trench I got a small single beep and gently uncovered a heavy piece of metal a few inches deep, I let them dig it out because I absolutely thought it was a utility, but it was their 60 pound 6' long lead pipe pressurized time capsule. I acted like it was a slam dunk, never a doubt in my mind thing, but I sweat that out.
