    Where there is wheat was a Buffalo?

    Jkline and I hit an old homestead in rural county today that I noticed last Monday. Ends up I knew the current owner and the home was my brother in laws grandmothers (and mothers) home years ago. House in pretty bad shape and gutted out for now. We hit it this morning and with high hopes too...

    Higher value target tests F75

    Ok. Took F75SE out to dirt patch by garden. Took two Silver Dollars, one modern bottle cap, one nasty rusted nail, and that infernal aluminum token to test. Items placed on a chunk of painted 2x6 and off I proceeded. Following are the results for me, here, at this time. GB was solid 68. I was in...

    High 70s numbers.

    I was at a park today and hit several 76-77-78 solid hits. Depth showed 5” so dug in but I was clear past 9” when the handheld finally started to buzz. I know to be leery of mid 90s and higher but what kind of metal would be constant at 76-78? I’m sure now its a larger item but could it be...

    Im still cussing a blue streak.....

    What would you do looking at the first two pictures?? And then after careful exhumation of the coin find out its a blankety blank aluminum token!!!!! Size of a silver dollar too....... mumph. Turns out it is collectable and was made in 1996: Rang up 88-89 on F75 and 4-5” down...

    Heavy hunted park? I dont think so.....

    There is a city park with a pond and a tot lot by a retirement home here. Rumors have it that its pretty well picked over but I have to decree BS on that. Its not a big area and there is some EMI on the one end, none the less with rain forecast for tomorrow I spent a total of five hours over...

    Tidbits over the weekend

    Decided to give the Arboretum a rest..... jkline and I went back to where I took the lady for a waltz on Friday, hit a few wheaties and a couple whatzits. Jeff found the second half of a small container type item that I had found the first time out. With both pieces together I was able to get it...

    Trip 5 to the Arboretum

    Had some time today so back to the woods. Started in to what I was hoping was the magic arc of where festival goers would have been sitting during the concerts. I hit a full fledged bottle cap graveyard! I must have dug well over 150+ steel caps and pulltabs! One good thing about digging it all...

    Took the lady for a walk.

    One of our Mounted Posse (Search and Rescue) members has a 1904 built house in a small community north of here. In casual conversation I asked if the place had ever been detected, she said not to her knowledge but she has only lived there for 10 years. She had time yesterday so I drove up. I...

    Trip 4 into the Arboretum

    Yesterday I pried jkline out of his silver mecca, I mean who wants things like 1892 Barber dimes??? Anyway, my intent was to see what else we might find and also to see if I couldn’t help get him one of those old 45 cases or a bullet or two. Before he got there I managed to find one bullet with...

    Whatzit? A casing and bullet but what round???

    This Old Arboretum we have been detecting in has a 110 year University history. Hoping to recovery silver and other jewelry items from its biggest history, the Blue Mt Rock Festival (circa 60-70s) has proven a bit frugal but the area is full of walking trails etc so its a good place to spend...

    Arboretum just went full circle

    Yesterday jkline and I teamed up where I dug the 66 JFK and was starting to get into the early 60s coins, well that little area didnt pan out so well but Jeff nailed an older Washington quarter and a late 50s Rosie further up the lane!! My efforts pulled up a silver colored table spoon with very...

    Iron grunts

    I got to the point in the Old Arboretum that iron was out beeping other targets. I normally run the F75 in Disc Mode with Discrimination at 10 and Notch at 1. I like to hear iron approaching and normally it doesnt bother me to hear the constant little 1-5 number grunts. The Old Arboretum has a...

    Interesting day in the Arboretum to say the least.

    So Sunday jkline and I made a run at the Old Arboretum on campus, it was dedicated and planted in 1906. Jeff’s silver Panamanian coin and the old 32 EXL rifle casing got my juices flowing. Went up this morning with the Sharpshooter attached to F75 and took a walk in the woods. First thing I hit...

    Horrible day coin shooting but did dig two jewelry items

    Working around the university for awhile with jkline. Started the grassy strips by the sidewalk edges along one of the busier main roads, I found one dime for my efforts. I did manage to recover a chain bracelet tho! Back says STERLING so score but I noticed it looked like something on the front...

    Wife found other missing USN ring, I kid you not...

    Im out detecting with jkline doing absolutely horrible when I get a text from the wife, “looky what I found while walking along the street!” I kid you not its the other missing 80 yr old USN ring (you remember the one I found???) Well at least I have her looking down for shiny things..... 😂😝🤪

    Speechless and Humbled

    I will keep this as short as possible, I had a hard time sleeping last night... Got out yesterday with the intent of digging up at least $2 in coins to break $50 since January 1. I did that within a couple hours. Decided to go back to those old Apts as there was still one building that I dont...

    Same old Apts but a whole new treasure!

    Still working away at the those old apartments! Last Friday jkline and I hit a few more wheaties and he managed another Merc, we split up and I headed for an area behind one of the units. I hit an area that started screaming high quarter numbers and thought maybe I was gonna make it rich...

    I hate near heart attacks..... lol

    Still hunting the old apartments but moved across the street. I had just started and hit two clad dimes, two ‘65 and one ‘66 so thinking this could get good. Not even to third big old fir tree when I hit a nickel/foil numbers. Dug down just to the top of the roots so maybe 3-4” and I can see...

    Just a couple of photos.

    My oldest son recently invested in a couple of really good lens, one which brings up detail on coins better than my loupe seems to do. Just a couple of pics on two 50 cent pieces I dug last year. He wants to take more to learn too..... (Sorry I dont know lens sizes or details)

    Bent coin question...

    Anybody know if a bent coin will throw off the detectors identifying it correctly? Using the F75 I hit a strong 83-84 signal at 6-7”. Confidence meter was full bars and signal strong from four sides, solid quarter. Went down just shy of 8” and up came a bent 1967 Memorial (think taco shell type...
