    Look, if I happen to find a tag like that I'm going to enjoy the joke. It's no different than carving your name in a tree to say you were here. If you have no sense of humor then maybe it's time to look for something else to do. Everything we find was left for us whether intentionally or not, so what's wrong with leaving something in the ground? Every house I've ever built has a penny from that year nailed to a stud, with my name written next to it. We leave something for people to find to say "I was here" and for all you know in 40 or 50 years those tags might be prized finds among th'rs so enjoy the joke, and if you are upset about it, well maybe you need to lighten up and let the hobby be more fun.

    I planted that tag as a calling card like some say not to be messing you up or distract you from finding anything. Kinda like a friendly gesture to think ah crap ol Jack Squat was already here. This is a link to my tag video!

    I think thats great. I'd think it was hilarious if I hit one of those... kinda like those "Easter Eggs" in video games.
    If you ever hit the big one detecting....follow the 3S rule. Shoot. Shovel and Shut up.

    I have to say it's funny in my book.

    I'm willing to bet when it's squished into a solid little ball your machine will read it as silver too. Well maybe not on an Etrac but I bet it dont read as foil. As far as Jack Squat not digging foil, Its attitudes like that that got me that nice big gold ring. I see I'm in the minority here but I don't see the humor in it and dont want to waste what preciouse little detecting time I have digging up everybody elses "calling cards" it's just trash to me and has no business being planted there.

    Some people dig for gold and others dig for coins and relics. Jacksquat is more of a coin hunter. I on the other hand go for gold on occasion and do dig foil signals. I've never mistaken any foil for silver. I've dug deep nails, that kind of sound good, but not foil.

    You assume these are ordinary balls of foil and ring up as such but the way they were rolled and squished makes them ring as silver coins. I guess you just have to run into them to understand. But my point is, we dig enough trash without adding more for other detectorists to find and when you choose to plant trash don't be surprised when someone else plants a bunch of trash in your favorite spot for you to find.

    You guys have different foil up there I guess, lol. Like I said earlier, he's only planting one or two per site. I think we've established that most noncranky people think it's cool, so the planting of the tags will continue.
