    Old volleyball court finds.

    First order of business is a huge shout out to Pulltabfelix! He’s been helping me with tips and info for my new 800. I’ve been trying to give it about an hour each day to get to know the machine. He suggested trying some volleyball courts to start off. So today I remembered there an old court not a mile from me. Now just kinda a giant kids sandbox. So...here’s what I got in 1 hour. Click image for larger version.

    Not in the photo is a bike kickstand from 70s-80s. It was about 12” deep. The sand is 8”-10” then Georgia red clay. Which means it was in the ground before the court was put in.
    So the coins, matchbox car and the foil wrapped balls (don’t know what that’s about) were about 4” in the sand.
    Now for the grand prize! The bronze medal. As far as I can tell it’s bronze. The clasp is rusted away. Bronze does not rust. It’s heavy and not magnetic 🧲. All point to pure bronze. It was 2” deeper then then the sand. That’s it for today. Enjoy and thanks to everyone for your support!

    Love volleyball courts... especially on beaches.

    Been detecting every one I ever see since I was knee high to a sand flea.

    Tommy, those are just about the size of ping pong balls. Note the coins I am finding in the photo also. I’ve found about 7 of those wrapped in foil things and 2 small plastic discs wrapped in foil. The only thing I can guess it someone was either hiding then to okay a game with kids, or someone was learning to metal detect with them. They are only about a year or 2 old. Thanks for commenting!

    There's usually a few things to find on volleyball courts, soccer fields or just about any other sports field. Good luck with the 800.
