Metal Detector

2 posts in this topic

Who all use a Metal Detector? 

I use to look around old houses and some Civil War camps years ago.  Mostly looking for relics but sometimes found coins.  The best thing I found was a Pocket Knife in the bottom of a Civil War trench.  (I call them type a Barlow Knife)   I cleaned the bigger blade  good enough to see "Sheffield" and "Beckman" and found later "Jobbers" from England sold knifes both South and North soldiers in those days.  (He said there were Jobbers and one was Beckman)  I'll bet he was yelling when he lost it !!! or was under the knife another 6 feet, yikes .....

I'll round up some pictures here soon

what about you other guys with Metal Detectors?

I bought a cheap one $40.00 clearance after xmas about 4-5 years ago, mainly to find survey stakes and I thought I would bring it along on vacation and check the beaches. It worked great for finding the survey stakes and I took it on vacation one time and was to lazy to do any beach cleaning.
