    A thread like this has been done before but I'll give you one I had a couple of years ago. I was beach hunting and got a decent signal. I dug down a couple of inches and found what I thought was a small silver ring. I reached down to grab it and found it was the tip of a fishing pole and the signal was the top eye. After digging a 10' long trench and digging down about 2' at the reel end, I finally removed the whole rod and reel assembly. The carbon fiber rod was broken but the reel still worked!

    I had read this twice...the first time I misunderstood and thought it was a fishing pole buried vertically. That would be impressive!

    Hmmmm...I haven't found too many oddball things, but the best would be a smoking pipe (the briarwood and brass kind, not the crack kind) that was in the middle of a random field. It was kinda weird to find it there. This is a field planted with soy and corn. Guess the farmer likes a smoke.

    My fave funny find was a pig flipper. About the size of a quarter had a pig face on one side and its butt on the other. Was advertising for Motts Brothers in Rockford. When I saw the pig butt I literally LOL'd

    I was detecting in Daytona Beach couple of years ago and dug a brass crematorium tag for someone who had their ashes thrown out to sea! The tag was from Springfield, Mass.

    Interesting that you should mention that. I found one also, at Ormond Beach, which is just north of Daytona. Mine was from Ohio!

    Shortly after I first began detecting, I was hunting near an old, abandoned house. Off one back corner, I got a very strong hit. Removing a light covering of soil, I found the top of a large, flat stone. Having read that people often hid trasures under stones or other misleading objects, I began to get excited. When I finally got the stone up and turned over all that was under it was an old, rusty ring gear from an early automobile differential. I didn't bother to put it in my pouch.

    @cudamark - This is completely off topic, and I also haven't anything to contribute to this thread-- However, when you mentioned Ormond Beach, it brought back so many fond memories. My husband and I have enjoyed many vacations at "Ormond By The Sea". We love it there and plan on vacationing there THIS summer once again. Now that I have been bitten by this hobby I most certainly plan on taking my gear with me this time. Oh, I cannot wait! But I hope I don't find a crematorium tag or an Urn!
