Found by Joe Mefford: “Jynnifer and I got our [first detector–ed.] Ace 250 today! I took it out in the backyard and found this old rain gauge holder about 3 inches down! Yay! Just wanted to share. Let the fun begin!”
Found by Bill Seibel: “Was getting a mixed signal but decided to dig. When I flipped open the plug I found ‘Tic Tac Toe, three in a hole’ plus a bonus penny in the plug. All clad but still cool.” 5 inches deep using a Whites TreasurePro.
Found by Susannah: “Well, my record for finding things that blow up still holds. This (uncleaned) is a trigger mechanism to a gun. Possibly a black powder pistol. The trigger still moves.” Found 5 inches down with an XPDeus.
Found by Tom Rother: Wooden handle (missing) brass grooving trowel. Found about 6 inches down.
Found by Rob Willett: Goose Island keychain bottle opener, dog tag, modern quarters and pennies, silver half dollar with date worn off. Used a Fisher F22.
Found by Pat Reece: “Wentworth” silver-plated spoon by the H&T Manufacturing Company, which dates it to 1928. Located with an AT Pro at about 4 inches during the club’s Mystery Hunt #1.
Found by Jim Hammond: Various change and a key. Also, a silver-plated tablespoon from the “1847 Rogers Bros Co.” The pattern is “Tipped”, which dates it between 1879-1898.
Found by Susannah: “This is a Czech reliquary medal. The top hinges back to hold a small piece of cloth that had been touched to a religious object, like saints’ bones or holy oil. The picture is of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The back of the medal says “Czeche Slvku”, meaning “Czecho-Slovak”, the name in 1918 of the first creation of the two countries into one. In 1938 they became Czechoslavakia. The medal would therefore date between 1918-1938.” Found with an XP Deus at 3 inches.
