    Metal Detecting
    I'm in Preston SE MN.

    Found my second silver with a detector today. Same yard as my first silver. 1st was a 1960 dime, today was a 1928 Merc. My first find here in Preston was made by accident. Our city is doing major street work this summer including our street(was last remaining brick st. in Preston) I salvaged(stole) some bricks to border our sidewalk out front. Even though we rent we work hard to improve our home(Apt.) Land lord says no prob as long as it improves the property value. Anyways.... I needed some topsoil to get grade back up on sidewalk. I took some from around the side of house in the flowers. A couple weeks later I notice a penny in the dirt tails up...I can see its a wheaty I turn to go back into house but the thought"It's a Wheaty! better grab it." Pick it up and after brushing some dirt off the face notice it isn't a wheaty and have never had one before. It was a 1891 indian head penny. Detected mostly clad but have found 1941 Austrialan penny 1913 pfennig 1910 wheaty 2 silver dimes 1960 and a 1928 Merc.

    Talked to one of the members (unknown to me at that time) here as he detected on my street.... a month later, after I bought a detector and joined this site I sent a PM to a SE MN member asking for some newbie help or advice. Turns out it was the guy detecting my street months earlier. We met and talked and I got to watch his technique. I AM getting a Garrit Pro Pointer ASAP. Am using a BH Lone Star. Today I rednecked wireless head phones for it...got tired of knealing on wire.

    All Types Of Treasure Hunting
    Hello, my name is Sam, I am from Fargo, ND but I do most of my hunting in MN (Snorkeling and Detecting). I am just starting out with the hobby and I really haven't found much to talk about yet...

    Honorable Mentions (1)
    Retired guy, east metro area. I started this spring with a Garret Ace 300, and quickly graduated to an XP Deus. Over the summer, I rarely missed a day. Unfortunately, research season is fast approaching.

    I primarily hunt for old coins. Of course, in that process, artifacts show up as well, and in hindsight, many of those mean more to me than the coins I've dug.

    Hello,
    I am new to posting on this site. Signed up like a year ago but never posted or commented on anything.
    I live in South Minneapolis, almost as far south as you can possibly go. I have not had a lot of time this year to get out with the machine besides not always like digging in the dirt by myself. Still a little time left this year before the ground is frozen though.
    If anyone is in the South Minneapolis area ever I suggest trying out Bossen Field off of 62 and 28th Avenue. The city is working on the park and the field is pretty much all tore up now. I have only seen one person there with a detector once so I am not sure how hard it has been hit. It is a pretty big area to go over though.

    Go for it! I'm in my 26th yr of detecting and 95% of my detecting is where old streets are torn up in old neighborhoods. Now and then an old park is torn up and I'm there.

    My name is Harry, brand new to the forum, and my very first Metal Detector arrives on Monday.
    I'm up in the Bemidji Area, and looking for others around the area.

    Hello from St Cloud. I started metal detecting this spring and found it is rather addictive
    My favorite find so far is a 1910 Barber Dime.

    Goose-O, that sounds like a good plan. Yes, I wish I could find a magic spot for more. I really like finding them

    Hi. Living in Robbinsdale, haven't detected in Mn much but have taken trips to silver and copper mines to detect the tailings etc. Heading west for gold next year. Have a new F75 that is working great for me so I'm interested in doing more local sleuthing. Happy to drive or tag along, or meet up somewhere.
    For some aerial shots of Cobalt Ontario mines: https://vimeo.com/weotn
    Nice way to survey a site quickly, to look for hidden tailings piles and recent pile changes.
    Helps to notice old foundations in fields too!
