    All Types Of Treasure Hunting
    I always ask the owner of the property, this past summer I found a beautiful child's ring made of silver, hand made in the shape of a rose.
    The initial's inside where from his ancestor from the late 1890's. He looked at it and told me who he thought its was, and said enjoy your find.
    So my advise is let the owner of the jewelry decide. If he had wanted it, I would have been disappointed, but also would have understood and would have had no bad feelings!

    I find lots of Cremation tags along the west coast of Florida. I always return them to the Gulf, where they belong with the remains/ashes.

    What is found by you lost by another is yours to keep id you wish. Karma kicks in when there is an obvious trail to whom may own it. Either way you have no obligation to return anything you find. Unless of course the government feels they own it. Then just keep your mouth shut

    The only regret i have is selling the rings i found back in the 80s. I would love to have returned them. But, back then it was pretty much impossible to find the owner of rings and i was a kid who had no clue so, i took the money and kept on truckin.

    years go I was detecting an old abandoned stone quarry , didn't find much at all just plenty of snakes...I came across what must have been the office building which was in real bad shape but I had to go inside to check things out . inside was an old metal desk. I opened the drawers and found a small bible with a name inside and an address...took some time to find the lady who owned the bible but I did find her ..she was at the time in her early 90's and was shocked that I had found the bible she had as a kid, she misplaced it and never could find it...found out her grand parents owned the stone quarry way back when and they often took her there to watch the "big machines "work...anyway it was a good feeling just to she how happy she was to get the bible back, made my day

    Metal Detecting
    My only gold was a menís wedding ring at myrtle beach. Only thing I could think of was posting it on Craigslist
    I would return anything of value if I found the owner
    If not, itís my retirement money



    Ps my raiding of bigwavedave 401k is his problem
