  1. Bracelet return makes the news.

    Last week wilddigger and I hit a local school. He dug a merc and a bracelet that had local history and was able to track down the family for an awesome return. Made the fox 5 news in Atlanta and shed some nice light on the hobby. He's mostly on the other forum so thought I'd share it for him...
  2. A little gold

    And I do mean little! Hit Lanier today with the guys with high hopes. We did four different beaches and with water levels being so much higher than past years we found the pickings to be slim. I was digging trashy signals with the at pro in about 3ft of water and was surprised to see this in...
  3. ✅ SOLVED Whatsit.

    Pretty unproductive hunt. This was the oldest looking thing I came across. Any ideas?
  4. Five silver evening.

    Haven't had much for finds over the last week. My digging pal wilddigger bailed on me for the last ten days to go hunt the Caribbean so I spent some time researching and testing out some spots that didnt work out. Tonight we got together and had a pretty decent hunt. Nothing spectacular but...
  5. Broke my silver slump

    So I haven't had much in the way of good finds lately and today was looking to be par for the course. Met up with my diggin buds this morning for some condemned houses and old lots that didn't produce much so after a while we ended up on the side of the road in an older section of town where...
  6. Any ideas?

    Rang up like silver, sounds like silver. Found two of them. Anybody seen these before that can tell me what they are?
  7. Back to the fairgrounds

    As the title goes, wilddigger and I hit the town fairgrounds again this morning. Last weekend we both pulled two Rosie's each. This weekend we found a total of 5 silvers between us and more of them were mercs. Pulled about 3 bucks in clad. The gold eludes us, masked by must be a zillion...
  8. Fairgrounds finds

    Hit a fairgrounds site that I've had my eye on for some time now. Wild digger and I both scored a pair of silver rosies and filled our clad bags. The junk rings are from a tot lot and picked up the monopoly hat at a home site.
  9. Lake finds

    Hunted the water with wilddigger this morning passing my scoop back and forth as we hit targets. I pulled the 14k ring as my 3rd target and within 30 minutes wild had two silver rings and a really small ring that looks to be brass. Also pulled up this top off a can. Anyone seen this...
  10. Suggestions for the beach?

    I'm heading to myrtle beach for the week (next week) and plan on bringing my at pro and infinium. Couple quick questions for you water hunters. I don't have waterproof phones but was thinking of picking up a pair. The connectors on the infinium and atpro look the same. Will one set of the...
  11. Night dig.

    Camped out at the lake tonight so I hit the beach with my at pro. The water is way down but still the beach was slim picking. Got a few coins but nothing good. After about an hour I headed up the beach to try the lawn area up above. Sometimes they do movies on one of those inflatable...
  12. ✅ SOLVED Id this button

    Dug a button tonight. Anyone know it offhand? I've yet to do any looking. Best I can make out on the back is scoville mfg co. Waterbury. Eagle on the front. Came from a site that goes back to around 1790 supposedly. Oldest coin I found was a rough 50s wheat so this button I guess gets...
  13. ✅ SOLVED Seen this bottle before?

    Dug in the woods. There was nothing for signals and this popped out. If I had better signals to dig I would have left it but.... I know nothing of old bottles and I doubt this to be that old either but the wife liked the color and I was wondering what used to be in it. Light blue, best I can...
  14. Anyone on the east side of atlanta?

    Looking to see if anyone's in the area. Not much action in the Georgia section of the forum. I'm in Bethlehem. Hunt the surrounding areas. Walton county mostly. Always looking to hunt with someone but I don't have much time for the club thing.
  15. Kicked to the curb!

    Went to hunt a school tonight with a friend. We had permission, or so we thought, but the principal asked us to only hunt on her schedule so when she left we were forced to hunt the curb out front. Lots of trash. Only good find of the night looks to be 1918 or 19 merc.
  16. Todays digs

    Got out this morning with my brother and Another forum member. The site was pretty good and safe to say nobody with any skill and a detector has been hitting it. There were some crummy plugs that had been left by someone else and they left the trash right on the surface. :( Anyhow, the best...
  17. Button id

    Found some similar ones but not the exact one. Thinking this is marine corp anyone able to pin it down? Found with my at pro, rang up in the low 90s. Right next to a big tree. Not in any area where I would figure on finding anything military related.
  18. AT pro or ace 350

    In the market for a new detector. Figured I'd get some outside input before I purchase. Got into detecting about 6 months ago with an infinium and while it has been fun I'm tired of digging trash. It seems to be a great detector but I'm after something that can give me more info about a...
  19. ✅ SOLVED What is this?

    Picking up change and tent stakes and came across this. Slightly smaller than a penny. Not too heavy, malleable - to some degree. edited to add the photos I couldnt post from my phone. Came from up in the mountains. All of the other junk from the area was clad from 75 up and near the surface...
