    Last night and today: 9 silvers and asked to leave by police???

    Howdy all,

    Got out today and was having a great hunt until right at the end of the day. Got 8 silvers including: 1 Washington, 2 mercury, 2 rosies, 2 war nickels and the nifty little Miraculous medal. Also got 11 wheats and $8.09 in spendable clad. Also found this ring. Rang up as a 9 on the Nox, but no hallmarks. Too silvery colored to be gold and to low on the Nox to be silver. Any help with what type of metal it might be would be appreciated.

    Right at the end of the day I had a police officer drive by slowly on the main road. I was right next to it, so I just nodded at him. He looped around the park then got out of his car and started heading over to me. Now I've been hunting this park about once a week for 2 months and haven't had any issues. Last year I checked at the little local jail and ask the cop if he thought it'd be a problem for me to search. He didn't seem to think it would be. Last month I asked a park maintenance guy if it was alright and again got the "go ahead". Anyways, the officer asked if I had permission and I told him who I'd spoken with before. He said that I needed permission from the commissioner and then asked me to leave, after getting a photo of my driver's license and truck plates, of course (no worries on either count with that). Anywho, just needed to get it off my chest, kind of shook me a bit since I thought I was in the clear. The city has no laws against detecting and I'm sure to refill my plugs and take out the trash, but jeeze.

    Anyways, happy hunting out there and if anyone has ideas on the metal in my ring, please let me know.

    Thanks for looking!

    Unless there are specific ordinances against detecting there, I'd go back.

    Unless he could articulate a crime that you had committed, you didn't have to show him your ID.

    Congrats on your finds. As for the cop....he sounds to me like an overzealous type who feels that his badge gives him power to enforce laws that don't exist. To me there was no reason to photograph your plates.

    The cop knows he can't do anything about it, he's trying to intimidate you. Looks like you're only guilty of a great hunt.

    never have understood why cops give someone the boot for metal detecting when they are obviously enjoying themselves and hurting nobody. There are too many other things a cop should be concerned with. In my experience, any of them that run a person off for detecting is just a bully on a power trip.
