Metal Detector Treasure Finds, Pictures and Stories
Georgia Gold Unearthed With Garrett GTI 2500
We were recently surveying a historical indian camp site in Kansas and I found a silver metal piece. The archologist we were working with has since completed research on the object and sent me the results. The engraving of the lion, unicorn and coat of arms represents the Royal Coat of Arms for the King of England.
The coat of arms frequently changed and this version was in use from 1801 to 1811. You can see from the picture that holes had been drilled into each end so it was probably used as an arm band. It was probably picked up during a raid and it's original usage is unknown at this time. I was using my Garrett GTP 1350 metal detector purchased from Kellyco and I am very pleased with it's performance.Ron M.
