  1. Giddy up!

    I found this horse in an old shed and I was wondering if anyone might know anything about it. I have no idea what it’s made of but I’m pretty sure it’s not solid wood. The saddle, ears and reins are mad of leather. I put a quarter on its saddle for reference but it’s about 14” tall and 14” long...
  2. Trifecta!

    Left work early because it’s finally not raining and the sun came out. Stopped by the store and got a few groceries and like usual hit the coinstar. Found a 1 cent coin from Bermuda. My heart skipped a beat at first I thought someone had left a gold coin!! Got home and went detecting at an old...
  3. Future Hole Digger!

    Went out today to dig some holes and my 4 year old great grandson wanted to go. I haven’t taken him lately cause it’s been to cold. Well it was a nice day today so I took him with me. I went to Main Street and hit the street side of the sidewalk. My first signal sounded good so I started...
  4. Lost his head!!

    Went out to dig some holes before the rain started and found a few clad quarters and dimes. I also found this but I have no idea what it is. The head is missing and it’s made of metal but a magnet won’t stick to it. It’s 4 inches long. I know one of you smart people will know what it is...
  5. Great Day!!

    Went and hit one of the old parks I have permission to and got lucky. Found a 43 Walker, 66 Rosie and 79 and 04 quarters!! . Before . After. Thanks for looking!
  6. Gotta love coin star!!

    On the way home from work I stopped by Kroger to get a few things so as soon as I walked in I went straight to the coinstar and the self serve lines. I saw a couple of coins in the coinstar and I thought it would just be clad. Well I was half right!! I also went and talked to city hall last...
  7. Xvision Sunglasses

    Just saw a commercial for sunglasses that start recording at the touch of a button. It said you can record for up to 2 hours. Might be a good idea while detecting so you can record your finds instead of carrying around a camera or holding one. I don’t know how good the quality is but you get 2...
  8. First Silver Coin!!

  10. Bored

    I was bored today so I was looking at some metal detecting videos and I saw something about Long Range Detectors. I have never heard of those and they seemed to be the silliest things I’ve ever seen. Has anyone ever seen or used one. I’m just curious what y’all think about them.
  11. Real or Fake Morgan

    I was given the 1898 Morgan today. For some reason it doesn’t look real. It’s lighter than the 1878 and the rim looks like it’s been pressed. Maybe it’s had a rough life but I thought maybe someone can let me know. I like collecting them but I’m not complaining it was free! Thanks
  12. New permission

    I went out to the fairgrounds yesterday for 2 hours and wasn’t having much luck at first. I found the area where they park their RV,s and then I started getting some good signals. I found a few quarters a dime and some kind of trinket. I don’t know what it is, it’s got a little damage but it...
  13. New Permission

    I followed some advice that many of you gave me and have been asking for permissions. There’s a huge convention center down the road from me where they are always having all kinds of festivals and carnivals. I don’t know if there used to be something else in the past. Well I took a chance and...

  16. Question

    I’ve noticed there are a lot of very smart people on this site so I’m hoping someone can help me. I’ve been given some outstanding advice on how to find old coins and relics. Does anyone know know if there is a way to find a map of old parks or houses in the town I live in. I thought that maybe...
