    Dang Crankyolman, you're crankyolmachine reads foil as silver? Time for an upgrade bro! Leaving foil in the ground won't do any harm to Mr. Squat. He don't dig those signals!

    I think it's a great idea.
    I thought about stamping Zincs with "C.J. was here", or something to that effect.
    I mean, what's the problem?
    Do you think he's dug everything good at that site?
    Is it better than a lousy pull-tab?
    At the very least, it's a piece of scrap copper.
    And who knows, one day it could be collectible!

    He only leaves one or two per site. It's pretty harmless.

    As someone that has found four of these tags while detecting I just laugh and go on about my business. Its all in good fun. A couple I have taken out where I am going to hunt again. A couple I have left for others to find. If you watch my videos on YouTube (izman65) you will see where I found them and even reburied them. Jack Squat rocks!

    The other day I was about to give up on an area because It appeared there wasnt even clad to be found, when I started finding zincs all over the surface of the ground spaced about 5 feet apart. After picking up 22 cents and finding nothing else I decided I had been pranked.

    After having the entire day to think about it I draw the conclusion that it was a pretty neat thing to find. I wish he would've left a email or contact number so that whoever finds one gets to hunt with him sometime. Otherwise it could seem discouraging. I hunted a little while longer and found some clad and then left. I think the concept is rather cool. Just wish it came with a reward!!

    I think it's hilarious. Cool too.

    If it keeps up it may gain as much notoriety with detectorist as the "Kilroy was here" character during WWII did with soldiers. I think more metal detector users should start leaving their calling "cards".

    Just think if you find something cool or valuable in a place that's already been hunted by "Jack Squat" or whomever hunted before you it gives you some pretty righteous bragging rights too. If there was a way to contact the one who left the card you could needle him good about being a lackadaisical detectorist.

    I personally would love to find a tag. In a weird way its an interesting idea. You know who hunts in your area now and see where else they hit or even a new person to hunt with.

    I'd like to see a Tag+Find post where people post things they've scored after finding someone's tag. Then let's see what machines the two were using.

    I doubt there's a tag within 500 miles of where I am. I'd be surprised if there's one on the continent at all!

    I think it's funny and harmless! A friend said he was going to place something like that at a favourite site of mine, he never did, yet, LOL. I found a gold 14K ring there Friday and about $6.50 in change. HH, Mike
