    what strange items have you found for the locations you hunt?

    For example I found 2 rolls of 1970's dimes still in the rolls on the beach one time, another time on the beach I found a 13" crescent wrench....makes you wonder who takes this stuff to the beach..

    Re: what strange items have you found for the locations you hunt?

    I've got a few for you. I've found dentures, and gold teeth in the ocean. My favorite was a pair of wedding rings from both the bride and groom who presumably got into a fight and threw their rings in the ocean. I found both of them about 10 yards apart with the same wedding date and first names inscribed. The strangest would have to be a tombstone behind a church at about eight inches deep. I got a signal and located the target. I dug around it and felt a round object about the size of a jar lid. I tried to pry it out of the ground but noticed it was stuck. I dug down and around it clearing the dirt away. I then saw a picture of a face on the round object with a plastic cover. That's when I realized it was a picture plate on a tombstone. Needless to say, I stopped digging immediately and notified the church.

    I didn't dig it but found a basketball out in the middle of the woods about a mile from the nearest house or road.

    Phillipine Centavo in my side yard. Quite a surprise as i live in the country, in North Idaho, on a county road and no sidewalks nearby so it wasn't lost by some passerby on the walk.

    Re: what strange items have you found for the locations you hunt?

    I found a head. It was one that hair cutting schools use to train beauticians. It was on top of the ground (thank god). Would hate to have dug on that. Gotta tell you those things look awfully real from 15 feet. It was in the woods/feild about 30 feet from a dirt road. Figure someone flunked out and decided to toss it...sure had the heart pumping.
