I guess at that time we did alright sometimes.We did dig our fair share of scrap.This was in the mid 70's and we were using white's coinmaster TR and you had to dig everything in hopes to get a good target.Near the mine yard we did find older mine company tokens,brass Id tags and lots of wheaties and lots of junk.Some silvers would come up every now and then,mostly merk's it would seem.We sure could not have made a living offf our finds at that time for sure but it was good times as a kid for sure.
Good luck to ya & happy hunting...........................................

I live and metal detect in WV. I hit the local schools, parks, and some private land that I have gotten permission to hunt. Since January I have found 14 rings,(9 gold,4 silver, and 1 copper), 9 silver coins, some artifacts, a lot of clad, a couple of knives, a mini mag light that actually worked right out of the ground, and some other misc. finds. I haven't hunted much in the last 6 weeks due to a foot injury, but now getting back to swinging the coil. I have a buddy I work with that also detects regularly, and he has found some civil war relecs, 2 large cents, 2 rings,(1 stainless, and 1 copper.) We both use Garrett AT Pro's, and just love the hobby! What part of WV are you in?

I live in Vienna, close to the Ohio river. I just started detecting in November, and get out every chance I get. With three kids, that sometimes isn't as often as I would like. My kids all have detectors and hunt with me some, but the hot weather has detered them somewhat. It alway amazes me when I find something really cool or old where many people have detected before.

One of the good things about MDing in W.Va is that pretty much anywhere you are in the state you'll be for the most near some farmland.Lot's of farming in wv for sure and it would seem that alot of items were lost on these private properties over the many years of uses.Some local research and property owner permission and you could be on a site that has never been searched before and who knows what kind of goodies is waiting to be dug up.
