    Found these in a shoebox when I was cleaning out an old apartment in a retirement complex yesterday. 2 of the ration books have a full set of stamps. WW2 Ration stamps Old checks
  2. Dust Devil

    Decided to dig at an old elementary school today. It was built in the 30โ€™s, and is being renovated inside and out. Itโ€™s a tough place spend any length of time at peacefully. Its located on a street corner with no tree cover, next to a dinner, and apartment complex In between lung fulls of hot...
  3. 25 minutes digging on the Knoll when the rain snuck up on us and chased us out.

    Round 4.5 on the Knoll. Not a great day but, we were able to pull a few pieces of very old, and heavy, aluminum targets along with an old metal screwdriver handle that looks like it slid onto the driver(s). We also pulled one (1) 1955D Wheat Penny, two (2) Copper Pennies (70s and 80s -...
  4. Today's Finds Knoll Hunt Round 3 - Nothing much today - 03/06/2020

    My Mini Digger didn't make it up today as planned so I resorted back to using my Shovel and Trowel on the Knoll. Only thing today is a Tine from a Tiller of some sort (I think that's what it is anyway), some small pieces of glass, and a few odds and ends. Here is the picture: Thanks for...
  5. Today's Finds Knoll Hunt Round 2 - More Pink Depression Glass and odd looking cans?

    I'm not sure what these pieces of cans are but there are more than what I've pictured here. I found the Glass just inches away from where I found the Glass yesterday. If anyone knows anything about the round "top and bottom" of whatever it is, please comment. It almost looks like a very old...
  6. โœ… SOLVED What in the heck did I find? From the knoll (mound) at the back of my property.

    OK, I don't even know where to look to figure this one out. The Pins between the metal look to be of Brass or Copper. Here are the pictures: I also found this rusted can. Any clue coz I don't have any? Thanks for looking. Cheers. -DH-
  7. Decided to hunt a 75' knoll (mound) that divides my home lot and my back lot...

    ...and I found some Pink Depression Glass (credit goes to flinthunter for how to ID the Glass) and a "rock" that you can check out here: http://www.treasurenet.com/forums/what/628499-found-orange-tinted-glass-pieces-rock-looks-chiseled.html As flinthunter pointed out; "The piece of chert could...
  8. โœ… SOLVED Found Orange tinted glass pieces and a rock that looks chiseled.

    Found Orange tinted glass pieces and a rock that looks chiseled. There is a 75' knoll behind my house that I've been wanting to get into for a while. Now that I have the Simplex+ setup the way that works for me, I decided to give it a whirl on the knoll (mound) and these pieces are what I...
  9. Can you say Nail Spill?? Kids Toy Gun - Almost whole - and more junk from my yard.

    I found every one of these nails in the same 6 inch round, 12 inch deep, hole at varying depths using the Simplex+. I was certain I had hit this area before but, as we all know, it's really never clean. The Toy Gun, Church Key, and the other Thing-a-ma-jig, was found about a foot from the...
  10. Today's Finds at my favorite park - Stainless Steel Keepsake Ring - 02/27/2020

    Took the Simplex+ out again earlier today and got another surprise, a Stainless Steel Keepsake Wedding (?) Ring, found at 3 1/2 inches and hit at 68 to 77, and some other items. Here is a picture of the ring. The other pics will come later after I'm through cleaning them up a bit. EDIT: Just...
  11. Todays Finds and can you say... "Phone Home?"

    Here are the finds from this afternoon - a 1st for me is the Nokia Cell Phone. -DH-
  12. Todays finds from the last of my neighbor's driveway.

    I'm pretty sure that I have cleaned out my neighbor's chat driveway. It's been a real pain digging through all that gravel but, it's finally done. Today I was using my Simplex+ and had it set in Beach Mode. I figured out a trick that seems to work rather well in trashy areas. Again, I was in...
  13. Braved the Freezing Cold, Wind, and Snow tonight just to find...

    Three more Zinc Pennies, (same number as earlier) and a Pull Tab all with my new Simplex+. Why am I posting this?? Because I have been over the same area right at 100 times - I even went over this area earlier with my Simplex+. Oh yeah, I found a piece of Foil as well. EDITED to make more...
  14. Found this morning - Three Liberty Head Nickels

    Hello all, I just joined today, 01/27/2020, and thought I would try and entertain you with a story that goes along with my finds in the photo. I've been metal detecting for 20 some odd years and have enjoyed every minute of it until a back injury put a momentary halt to my swinging. During my...
  15. Found a silver looking thing and a few coins.

    I went out and dug for an hour or two at a 1910 house today, I would have stayed longer but my hands and feet were getting really cold so I guess 2 hours is it for today. My first coin was the wheatie (1925), then I found the dime and stinkin lincoln. I almost forgot to cover an area in the...
  16. Please help me identify this Native American stone

    Anyone know what this is? I found this by the Rio Grande River on the American side by Harlingen, Texas.
  17. YOINK oh and YOINK!

    Hi everyone, I hope you all are having a good weekend. It's been awhile since I've posted anything, sorry about that, I'm still recovering from another heart attack on new years day. It's my 3rd one in almost 6 years, when the dr put in the stent, I was awake, I didn't feel very much, and it was...
  18. 8.19.2018 local park

    I am posting this just as a way to look back at my progress, I spent 2.5 hours out at the local park yesterday, I really am just trying to put in the footwork and understand my machine better. So I found my first $1.00 coin today (TreasureMaster) Iโ€™m also not a complete newb to earrings...
  19. What an amazing weekend!!!

    Hi everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend with lots of fun and cool finds. Saturday we hit the grass at one of our favorite parks by the river, it was really nice, the weather was mild and mostly sunny. The parking lot was packed and it took us a bit to find a spot to park, there were lots...
