    Found this at the low tide line yesterday on beach in St. Augustine area. Is it old because of the shells stuck on it? Generally how long does something need to be in the water for this to happen? And, if old, why hasn't it corroded away (if it were iron)? I scraped and edge to show the metal...

    I was out metal detecting and i definitely wasn't expecting to find this. It appears to be some sort of hunting trap. I have no idea how it would trap an animal though. It is secured to a stake by a chain that goes super deep into the ground. I am having a very hard time digging it up. Below are...

The rocks are silverish in color and metallic kinda like schist...

  19. New guy here, not sure if this is even a coin, but...

    Hey y'all, Maybe I should have posted in 'What is it?' rather than coins, because I have no idea if this is even a coin, though I figured if it is a coin you'd be the guys to ask. But anyway, found this in Southern Ontario, 10 inches down around a baseball diamond that used to be farmed at...
