    Most Valuable MD Find You Ever SOLD???

    So, I see a lot of people posting beautiful rings, coins, and relics on this site. But I am wondering what is the most valuable item you ever found Metal Detecting that you actually SOLD?

    Feel free to post the sales price - I'm nosy!!

    Re: Most Valuable MD Find You Ever SOLD???

    I had a White's dealership about 10 years ago. A friend needed cash and I bought this from him for $2000 just prior to 9/11/01. He found it with a White's Alaskan metal detector in 1975. After 9/11 people quit buying stuff and I got a little scared of the economy, so I took it to Nashville and sold it to Harry Ridgeway that December for almost double. I probably could have gotten more, but was happy to get that money. It is a great piece and I wish I still had it. Still had a pretty good return on my investment over a 3 month period.

    I found a very large gold class ring back a couple of years ago. I checked for the owner I called the school and we did alot of searching and could never locate the owner. So after gold got up I took it in and I got $178 for it. So that is the most value item I have sold that I have found.....Matt

    I've found jars full of trinkets and baubles over the years. I can't say I ever SOLD any. The most memorable piece that I GAVE away was a small diamond ring. I gave it to my girlfriend's granddaughter. It cost her a SMILE. Payment enough. TTC

    Is this the IRS back tax info collection site?

    LOL! Guess I never thought of that.

    I would hope that some IRS ***** would have something better to do than troll a MD site in the hopes of finding that someone sold a few hundred dollar item and 'forgot' to mention it.

    Anyway, I was just curious since I see some amazing finds and stuff like, 'appraised for this' or 'worth that' and I was just curious if anyone really went ahead and sold one of their amazing finds.

    I'm just getting into this hobby and while I certainly plan to document/photograph any interesting or valuable objects I might find I am also hoping to be successful enough to occasionally sell anything of value that I might be fortunate enough to find.

    I was curious to see what the potential of this hobby really is - like I saw someone's ring collection on here (I think) after like 20 years of finds - after never having sold anything - and was wondering if anyone ever sold something that elaborate? You know, like "Metal Detected for 20 years, sold my entire gold ring collection for 800k and retired..."LOL or something along those lines.

    Perhaps the topic is too personal - if so, I apologize.

    Just trying to evaluate the $$$ potential of this hobby that I'm getting into.

    Potential has a great deal to do with where you are and how much time you put in. I live in a fairly old area, and have hunted many early sites, and if you can do that good things will happen. Good as in many four figure finds in my 10 years of digging. I'm sure that's still the exception, not the rule, because I feel I've been a bit lucky too.
