  5. Thin coin...Need help

    Went out detecting tonight for about an hour. Hunted a field in Western Germany not far from my house. I found this thin coin...At least I think it's a coin. It's very thin and barely any detail left on it. I can make out the letters "MEIL" on the bottom of it, but I'm not familiar enough with...
  6. Is this an Artillery button?

    I'm living in West Germany now, not far from Ramstein Air Base, and I went out for a hunt tonight. I pulled this flat button out of a field and was hoping someone would recognize it. It has a crown on the top of it, looks to be three canons on the bottom and possibly a fort in the background? I...

  8. FOUND MY FIRST SPEARHEAD! Need Help with ID...

    I'll admit that I have zero knowledge of arrowheads and spearheads. I'm a metal detectorist by trade and always look for them while in the field, but today was the first time in 4 years detecting that I've actually come across one! I found this one in a plowed field in Addison County, Vermont...

    This is the first chance I've had to put this up. Went out on a rainy Easter Sunday with my backup machine...the AT Pro. This hunt is up there as one of my best. The AT Pro sniffed out a nice 1941 wheat penny, an 189_? Indian head penny, a 1942 Silver War nickel, a very worn & barely...
  10. ✅ SOLVED Crown coin? Token? Please Help!

    I found this in a field today that has produced Colonial period coins, but I have no idea what this is. It looks like half of a brass coin/token to me. It's broken right down the middle, but from what I can see it has a crown in the upper half, the letter(s) "V" then "H"? And below that in a...

    The M.A.R.C.H. team, Wes & I, got out into a field today that Wes got permission for recently. We both found a few good keepers today and each scored silver. He had me beat for oldest coin until about 30 minutes before we left. Then I found a not often dug Bust Dime!!! It's in ROUGH shape...

    Got an early birthday present last night when the RedSox won the World Series, and today I went out in search of treasure.

  14. Instant Karma

    Went down to VA Beach last night for the midnight low tide. Took my friends Barry & Nelson along in search of gold. About an hour into the hunt I was approached at the water line by a guy and a girl. Both in their mid 20's. The guy said his friend was playing football and caught a pass, but...
  15. Silver!

    Tried a different section of VA Beach tonight and made out pretty well. I've never found a necklace before, and tonight I found two! One was a junker/SS, but the other turned out to be a nice silver necklace. Also made off with a fine butterfly ring, also .925! Along with that I dug $3.85 in...
  16. JEWELRY BOX IS FULL!

    Went out to Virginia Beach two nights ago and had the best hunt I've had in two years. Started out a bit slow, but picked up an hour into the hunt. Targets were pretty scarce but the ones I picked up were nice. First good target I dug, besides coins, was the Silver ladies ring with fake...

  20. Gold/Ice saved the day...

    Went to VA beach for the morning low tide today, and it couldn't have been a much slower day. Nobody I talked to had found much more than a couple coins. Took me two hours to find my first coin, a penny. But right after that two hour wait of diggin trash targets and a single penny I hit a...
