  1. ✅ SOLVED Beach Find : Looks like some sort of religious charm..?

    Wow, that looks much nicer than mine.! The one I found has a bit of a "goldish" color in the right light, but probably is not gold. Thanks for the information.
  2. ✅ SOLVED Beach Find : Looks like some sort of religious charm..?

    Hi, I went out to the beach this morning to test out a new detector( simplex+ ) and found this tiny little charm near the beach volleyball courts in the first few minutes. Can anyone ID it.? It is only about a half inch in diameter and appears to be religious but not sure what religion. I don't...

    I had hoped there could be some coins inside but the museum didn't think so. I don't know if you can even xray something like this to see what's inside since there is metal and shells/stones. Would be nice to see some round shapes stacked up in the bulge area on the one end!

    Ya its hard to tell if the hollow tube area had wood or metal inside. It almost looks like wood fragments are inside but it could just be some rusted iron. The guy at the museum thought it was wood but questioned why would the conglomerate form around wood, so maybe it was a metal shaft.

    Ya one of the people at McLarty said it is most likely from one of the ships, so I was happy to find something that is 99% most likely shipwreck related. Most of the stuff I find there are thin fragments of old rusty metal that some people say might be from the wrecks and others say they are...

    I drove back up to the treasure coast on Thursday, stayed the night, and metal detected over 10 miles of beach between the two days. I found most of the same, rusted fragments of metal and random junk like fishing lures and even a portion of a dresser drawer a foot deep in the sand, but I did...
  7. Found these rusty metal pieces and not sure what they are.?!

    Well I upgraded the stock coil on the Vaquero with an NEL Hunter coil and now when I use discrimination the metal finally DOES disappear when I go past Iron. So maybe the stock concentric coil that ships with those detectors doesn't do a good job of separation of metals. I can't wait to drive...
  8. Found these rusty metal pieces and not sure what they are.?!

    Hi, I just started metal detecting and went to the treasure coast area of FL earlier this week. I found a bunch of what appears to be rusty metal washed up on the beach, a local said he finds this stuff near the ship wrecks and attributes the metal to the 1715 wreck. What is confusing me is when...
