    South Carolina Beaches

    Same here in Florida George, although Volusia County beaches -Ormond, Daytona, New Smyrna- are open, the closed beaches are being patrolled and access points blocked off. Jacksonville Beach consider any one on the beach to be a trespasser. Perhaps the silver lining is that finds will increase...

    Florida Wet Sand/Water Hunting

    Thanks for the feedback Ken. All of our beaches can be hit or miss. At least you found some targets and had some fun. I think Fort Lauderdale beaches are now closed due to the virus so you were lucky to get on at all.

    Florida beaches - which ones are open

    In my area Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach are open, but vehicle ramps are closed. Not a lot of people on the beach so parking off beach may not be an issue. St. Augustine Beach is open, but like Daytona and New Smyrna, the vehicle ramps are closed as are public parking lots so parking...

    Forget about the doom and gloom on TV, I had silver to find

    LawrencetheMDer: Volusia County beaches are still open for now. They just closed the ramps to vehicles. Flagler closed their beach this morning and beaches in the Miami/Fort Lauderdale area are closed as well.

    Daytona Beach find

    Good point Vesuvius. I have also seen old Daytona Beach postcards of Women’s Army Corp soldiers drilling on the sand. It has been a destination since the 1880s. I did find a Barber V nickel dated 1891 on the beach. Awesome finds Mike K. Bet there is quite a story behind those buttons. Spot...

    My first Case knife...

    Florida Wet Sand/Water Hunting

    Thanks for that information Maxxkatt. I did not know how the claim lease worked on the Treasure Coast. Three thousand yards is a significant area. I just stay out of the water when I am down there just to be safe. Recall reading about a large find of gold coins by a family working their...

    Daytona Beach find

    I remember you telling me that. Google forts in Fort Lauderdale and you will find that there were several forts built near the beach in the time period of your button. Nice, historic find!

    Daytona Beach find

    Just affirms what I tell people on the beach, you never know what you will dig up out here. Thanks for the reply George!

    Daytona Beach find

    Very cool TechBill. Just the type of response I am looking for. I guess in both of our cases the owners may have just relocated to the area.

    Daytona Beach find

    Dug this badge on Daytona Beach Research indicates that it is an army crest for the 6252nd general hospital near San Diego. Wonder how it got here which leads me to the question: How many of you have found items that just don't seem to belong to the area?

    14K wedding band RTO

    My wife and I were working the beach in St. Augustine when I was approached by a gentleman who asked me if I could help his son find his wedding ring that he had lost in the shallow surf about 30 minutes earlier. His son was in shin deep water looking for the ring. The son told me he was...

    Hanna Park

    Does anyone in the Jacksonville area know if metal detecting is allowed on the beach at Hanna Park?

    Military insignia

    Anyone know what this insignia dates to? From some research it looks like a coastal artillery insignia, but from what period, WW2, WW1? It is a lot smaller than others I have seen. Thanks for checking it out.

    Foreign Exchange

    I meet people from all over the world as I have said in previous posts. Yesterday I met a Russian family with two little boys. I carry some beach "loot" around to give to nice kids and gave each of the boys one of the cars that I had collected. A short time later, as I was making my way down...

    Any idea what this is?

    This is a beach find. The detector picked up the metal bands on the end. It is of an unknown composition, but it is not metal. The only marking are the numbers 7540-00-550-8448. I Googled the number and all that came up were various part numbers for unrelated items.

    Problems with gold chain/necklace

    Just received my 800 last week. I am having issues with it hitting on gold necklaces. I used a very thin 14K ankle bracelet at the beach the other day to test it and could not get the 800 to respond. I cranked the sensitivity to the max with the recovery on 8. With these settings I would get...

    I found this on the beach up in the dunes after we have had a string of rough surf and high tides. Looks like a sponge maybe. Does anyone know if it is a fossil or just dead? How does one tell if it is fossilized?
