First Gold Coin 3 Silvers
Well here are my finds from 2 different sites today I detected in Eastern North Carolina. My first gold coin!! An 1861 $1, with the multiple errors.

First coin cache
I went back to the old 1903 farmstead where I had dug a truck load of modern Lincolns. I felt like that there had to be more there than just Lincolns at a 111 year old site. I spent 4.5 hours there on this hunt and it paid off in spades, or should I say silver. Scored $2 in clad and a baby food jar with $5.30 face in silver Roosevelt dimes and Washington quarters. The baby food jar of coins was under some loose boards of the wood floor that was in one of the stalls in the barn. This is my first ever coin cache and contained more silvers total than I have found since I started detecting six years ago. This year has by far been my best year ever with...

Visualizing a Diamond on a gold ring

I bought my Garrett AT Pro about 6 weeks ago. I did it because I live right next to a very large beach, and on many occasions, I had seen metal detector people on the beach scooping up the sand and then looking intently at what was in their scoop, then picking it out of the scoop only to look at it again intently, then slip this item in their pocket, only to start detecting again.

old stirrup in down town Lake Jackson, Texas
I joined a metal detecting club in Brazoria, tx. They had a hunt arranged with a company that had bought some old houses and ball fields from the 1940's. that were going to be demoed for a new food store. We found lots of silver coins, tokens and jewelry. but this was what I thought was my best find. Using a GARRETT AT PRO 18" deep at the edge of one of the ball fields I found this stirrup solid brass. ...

Old Axe Head
I have had my AT Pro for about a month. Went out the other day in Southern Georgia and found this old axe head. Too rusted to see any writing. I have not tried to clean it. I believe it is a Kelly axe head from the late 1800's....
