  1. 🔎 UNIDENTIFIED Buckles, what is the value, date or type?

    Hi everyone, I have 8 buckles here, 1 small bell, a ring and (probably) a sewing tool.

There is one with...

  8. somebody is planting beer cans but I doubt they'll grow!

    I finally got permission to detect an early 1800's farmhouse today. Apparently one of the former owners thought it would be cool to "plant" his beer cans on the property--probably at the very spot he finished off the contents. And he must have finished off quite a few--they were everywhere...
