Although the 14K Gold 1/4 K Diamond Mason ring on My Profile. can
be confirmed lost 1:41 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on June 17, 1948
when United Airlines Flight 624, a Douglas DC-6 crashed outside of Aristes, Pennsylvania,
and found by me on the 55th. anniversary year of the crash. is my most valuable find.
My Best Find in my Mind was this Circa 1940s. Mills dime Slot Machine,
that I found in a drained Lake with 4 dimes still in it.
I was able to get the story that the police raided all the clubs in the area.
then loaded the slots in a truck bed & used a sledge Hammer on them.
then dumped the remains coins & all in the deepest part of the lake.
though most of the people Laughed at me, saying it was all a fantasy
this one, & pieces of others proved me right

It is really hard to pick just one, however, I will go with my oldest dated coin. While detecting in Philadelphia, I was afforded the opportunity to hunt a house built in 1747. While hunting the front yard, near the walkway to the door, I got a nice solid high tone, dug a plug, and this beauty appeared. 1837 large cent.
Woo Hoo... New free metal detector!
I would just like to say 'thanks' to everyone, out there on TNet, for voting me "Most Likely To Win A New Metal Detector". I promise that I will uphold the high standards of this coveted position, and do my very best to find some treasure worth posting on TNet.

Darn FFARL.... I just confirmed my other old iron horseshoe was from Mr. Lewis's right rear horses leg. So I do have a matching pair of shoes from the horses on "Lewis & Clarks Expedition"!!!! Gee!!!!
Well, it may comfort you to know that the winner was chosen at random, so you could have found a complete chess set carved from George Washington's rib cage and still might not have won it.
