Steve Gaebel the world famous "Canadian" detectorist will run this forum and help with identifying all of your stranger finds. Hopefully you will enjoy it as he will for sure. Thanks to all of you who frequent our forums. And now a word from "Steve"...

While it's a thrill to dig old coins, often it's all that other stuff in between that makes the hobby so interesting. Locks and lockets, trinkets and toys, badges, buttons, bits and pieces of hardware and tools--the ground is full of these treasures and each one tells a story. Sometimes trying to find out just what you dug can be as much fun as digging them!

So pull on your detective hat (or your best guessing cap) and come on in. This is the place  to post your interesting, unusual or unidentified finds and join in the fun of helping ID the mystery whatzits!  Steve Gaebel
