    Gold in Denmark

    In the news: "A chance discovery is shedding new light on early Norse history, after two old school-friends, armed only with a metal detector, stumbled across a gold treasure trove." https://www.bbc.com/reel/playlist/ancient-mysteries?vpid=p0cjd7l2 Even after 1,500 years, there's plenty...

    Surface Find -- No Detector Needed

    I parked the car. My wife and I were walking across the parking lot into the local market. Looking at the ground, I spotted a $100 bill. It was folded in half. I gave it to my wife. She took it to the store's manager and asked him if anyone had reported losing some money in the parking...

    Beginner's Luck

    In the news ... https://www.nms.ac.uk/explore-our-collections/stories/scottish-history-and-archaeology/iron-age-gold-torcs/ Quoting the newspaper story --- the guy found them "on his first outing with a metal-detector – only seven steps from his car." Park car. Get out of car. Turn on...

    Brass plate writing?

    Question: ... Where was it found (city, state)? I might be able to find more information about him from public records, and can post it here. Cheers, Joe

    Brass plate writing?

    Here's the image reversed. It looks like a printing plate (maybe for a business card). Cheers, Joe

    Oilfield Trash Pin

    This one was about 3 inches down in a vacant lot in a well traveled area. It came in the Target ID mid 60's range on the Teknetics Omega. It's a pin, about an inch wide. Even though it says "Trash", I'll keep it. Cheers, Joe

    They changed the name to "Military Air Transport Service" (MATS) in 1948. Here's the Wiki article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_Transport_Command Cheers. Joe

    Garbage

    Well done, moderator. We see enough trash and junk in the ground, and we remove it. No need to see it here. Cheers.

    A Wheatie and a Watcher

    Out with the Garrett GTI2500 today on the Jacksonville curb strips ... Got a nice "penny" signal and dug up a nice 1947S Wheatie. Sitting on the ground next to the hole was this little guy, watching me. He didn't try to hop away, but just kept looking. A good day, all around. Cheers, Joe

    Curb Strip Junk

    I'll keep the two quarters and two pennies. The other stuff is part of a man's watch, a faucet, and a piece of trim from a Mercedes-Benz "GL" auto. (I thought things weren't supposed to fall off expensive cars.) It's going to recycling. Cheers, Joe

    Did a Good Deed (I hope)

    I went by there again, just to check it out. After more than a month, the key's still hanging there on a nail on the fence. It's easy to see it from the street. I guess the guy is doing OK without it. Cheers, Joe

    Got Permission To Hunt A Couple Of Lots Where Some Houses Were Just Torn Down

    Those are excellent finds. Well done, John. The 1929 bicycle license tag is probably a more rare and unusual find than a 1929 coin. Folks used to discuss about whether or not a bicycle license was "necessary". . . . A license is not necessary. Why can't I just ride my bike, without...
