Weekend Treasure Hunt

This past weekend I went back to the old spot where I found my 1819 large cent from the previous Saturday. Again, small wooded area across from an old cemetery. I don't like getting to close to the cemetery because people might think you’re digging 6 feet for a body (LOL!).

The area that I have been metal detecting at has been hit pretty hard. So, I went into the thick stuff where I could barely fit the coil between fresh new pine ... Read More

Shawn Burke started off as a customer of mine and has become a great friend to me. I frequently go metal detecting in South East Massachusetts with a group of guys. One of the best things about this is that we all communicate on different locations to go treasure hunting. We all have been pounding a small farm field that was converted into a park.

Welcome Treasure Hunters

I remember my first time watching a man metal detecting at a local high school, when I was just ten years old. I still remember being under the tree, watching him search through a pile of dirt looking for something. I then saw two shining silver dimes which turned out to be mercury dimes. I remember saying to myself those dimes look different. A couple of years later I was starting to collect coins. By the age of thirteen I bought my first ... Read More
