    I'll tell you now - you're hooked for life and when you die you'll want to be buried (or cremated) with your favorite detector so you can detect forever...it is a curse! Gold doesn't come often but when it does it is better than an organism.

    When you say "You and your Brother-in-Law is Hooked", you really have no idea just how true that statement is! You have just filled every spare hour of your time, and more, for the rest of your lives! But it's a good thing..
    But don't forget, you still have to go fishing from time to time.

    I had the next best family heirloom find...5yrs ago we inherited my wifes family ranch that was pioneered by her great grandad in 1890's in No.Calif from Denmark..Sooo first thangs first..detect the hell outta the property...I think it was one of the few times I knew an was part of the family who lost the item long ago...So no gold double eagles few I.H.'s ,few mercs,lots of wheats and a beat up walker..found a pretty engraved Sterling thimble an have dug a half dozen er so,most squished,or just plain mangled,only a plain, seems to be modernish I display
    This one how ever was pristine an while cleaning saw it was engraved with the fancy script"Marie"..couple of years later I hear wifey an her sis talking history while looking through photos..wife says " the back of this one says great gramma Marie?.that's mam ma's name huh"..I was dumb founded...I ran an got thimble an when they saw her name on it.. it brought tears to their eyes...twas aweeeesome..I'm a legendary hero now..Click image for larger version.
