Got out for about an hour today and found my first military relic. On a vacant lot that once had a home built in 1902 I recovered the item below. A World War 1 enlisted man's medical corps collar insignia.

Tesoro compadre, which can find needles, but looking for something with a bigger coil/detects deeper, waterproof salt/fresh user friendly.

Thank you everyone for the kind words. The insignia has not been restored or had anything done to it. I just cleaned it up with some water and a toothbrush.
