]Here's some finds for two days with the GTI2500.

... The statue is heavy (feels like lead). It's about 3.5 inches high.

... The emblem is for the Jacksonville Jaguars football team.

... The bottle cap is from an old bottle of Gilbey's Gin.

... The wheel looks like it was a flywheel for a clock. Nothing else was found around it.

... The Social Security card is aluminum. (In the photograph, I blurred the person's name and SSI number for privacy. He died in 2003.)

... The bullet slug is a .32 hollow point.

... The medal is marked "CONVERGYS".

... The Wheat pennies are 1930, 1944, 1945, 1946, and the Canada penny is 1979.

... The key has floral decorations, and is marked "Ford".

This detector scores on depth and accuracy in its target imaging. It's a pleasure to use.

I did some research on the Ford key.

It's for a Model A, from about 1930 or 1931. Its serial number is "56".

It was about 4 inches down, in a curb grass strip between the sidewalk and the street.

Some guy must have really disappointed when he got into his car -- and no key. I'd be happy to get it back to his family ... but that was over 80 years ago.

Best of luck,

Great finds Joe! I dug up one of those social security cards last year in the woods. It was probably stolen and tossed. That GTI 2500 is still a great detector, compared with what technology is available today.....
