See growing up on and around a beach you see all types... from the raisin pruned women to the kite flying guys... to the detectorists that DID ONLY THAT ... for a living.THIS IS NOT MY PICTURE... but.... this is a close glimpse into my detector (i still own one) and my youth of what i was exposed to... This is what detectorists in my youth on TI (Treasure Island) was like watching WHAT I CALL "veteran detectorists" the older more experienced guys than me.
THIS would and could be for some of them....
A week detectings haul.

Detecting was ALL those guys did... for a job that is.
I knew one older couple who never got rid of anything they found.
You would not believe the collection they had... massive... stacks upon stacks upon stacks.
They were featured in at least one MD magazine in the 80's... and i think they were even on a show.
Remember... These memories extend roughly 45+ years ago.
