Took my wife for a much needed getaway. Santa brought her an AT PRo. So we hit Vero beach and over to Naples. Naples proving to be better. $9.99 in clad, 10 and 20 Euro coin, Two pieces of jewelry marked 925. A necklace pendant and part of a bracelet. ( but was told the rocks are fake) A...
Just made two sand scoops for $3.17 each. Plus a lil work. A marker,drill bit and a rasp is all I needed. As well as 2 of these. A lil project, on a boring cold day.

I'm thinking of taking my wife to out to do some beach detecting in a couple weeks. Where would you head to on the east coast ? Warmer weather would be a plus. Anybody have a good feeling about an area ? I'm in an arm cast, so i guess i'll be digging. haha :coffee2:
Well, there was no detecting for me this year. March 30th, I fell through the roof of my hunting camp while beginning to tear it down. For obvious reasons. Injuring my left wrist,shoulder,hip, my back and right hand. It's truly been a long road.Xrays,Mri's,scope,injections,physical therapy and...
I know this area very well. It is very close to my camp in NE Pa. Forest county,Pa This land is in the Allegheny National Forest. While doing a google earth fly over, I noticed this.. real defined. What do you think ?
So.. Last eve I went to a new place to hunt. I was there an hour and only covered about 400sq ft.
Found 10 quarters,7 dimes and 6 pennies.
Today, it was sprinkiling. I thought what the heck ! I no sooner touched the ground. A penny, a dime and then....49 pennies in a dump ! I maybe went 15ft...
Found a badly corroded coin. It has a bad green corrosion to it. I put it in distilled water. With a magnifying glass I see a couple small stars around the edge. Identity and cleaning help needed ! And appreciated of course !
Got out in the great weather today. The W.Pa ground is not frozen or cold in the least. Spent 1 1/2 hrs in the yard today. Found 4 regular, 9 wheat pennies. To include a 1913 & 1915. A small metal gun. And Silver : ) A 1944 quarter ! A good way to start out the year. :thumbsup:
Every winter. I seem to be driven by the local history of Western Pa. Obtaining books and information on it and divulging myself into another time. Whether it be the wilderness that once was or the likes of the lumber,oil and coal industry's. Towns that once were, rails that once ran, rivers...
