    I've got enough shards of cast iron to build several bean pots and parlor stoves...

    Our house is 260 years old. The land has been worked over in the past by trespassers with detectors. I find only the good stuff now....Old nails and plow parts. I have a knack for those.

    For some reason in the park woods by me, its cut up lead wheel weights for car rims. There are no roads anywhere near where I find them.
    My METAL DETECTOR is actually a TIME MACHINE

    Metal Detecting
    Bits of old structural iron, snaps from windbreakers, and cheap non-historical buttons. My area was/is loaded with garment mills and they must have had button throwing contests on a regular basis. I can find handfuls at a time in the same area and at times the same hole. I am also a pro at digging the foil from the inside of plastic iced tea container lids lol. It's a round piece of foil attached to thick white waxy paper and they sound so good until I see them in my hand. I'm sure you've all been there.

    I also forgot to add this one. Pieces of chain link fence used to attach the fence to the rails/posts. I find those on a regular basis too.

    1. You mean screw tops? Yeah, those sound good. Crown caps get disc'd out for the most part.
    2. In over 50 years of detecting (and over 100 different schools and ball fields), I've never found one. Aren't those steel?
    3. I like finding keys. I have over 2700 of them now!
    4. Same goes for brass and copper, lead. Bring them on! I cash in many pounds of those metals every year.
    5. If they're brass, stainless, or copper, I'll take them and smile. Steel.....my detectors won't even see them if they're adjusted correctly.

    Yeah I meant crown caps, screw tops are annoying too! Footy boot studs, the screw in types, plenty here in australia. They sound good, high-ish conductivity.

    Depends: In the state parks in Michigan it is a toss up between, pulls tabs, beer bottle caps or tin foil. I dig and clean it all up.

    On the desert it's bullets or casings.

    Screwcaps, pulltabs, Shotgun headstamps, 22LR cases. Pieces of aluminum flashing can also be a problem.
