Found by Matt G.: “These are my last good finds from 2017.

Fancy button or drawer knob 1 inch Garrett Ace 250
Anchor button 3 inches Garrett Ace 250
Silver plated fork. I don’t find forks often, usually it’s spoons. 2 inches Garrett Ace 250″


Found by Ron P.: “I finally found my first 925 silver ring after 9 months of detecting! [Congrats, Ron!–ed.] It has mother of pearl inlays and appears to be a man’s ring. It was 3 to 4 inches deep and was found using my AT Pro.”


Found by Ron P.:  “Based on my research, the best guess is this was some type of horse tack, perhaps from a saddle used by the St. Louis Metropolitan Mounted Police sometime between 1867 and 1923. The item is brass with blue and white enamel along with gold gilding around the edges and on the center seal. It weighs 4 ounces and the sides are a bit over 4″ each. This was found at a depth of 4″ to 5″ using my AT Pro.”


Found by Lee N.:  “Found this item, at a 1790 home site. Found 6 inches deep, with my Ace 250. Confirmed to be 150-250 years old, by Mr. Mark Trout, Director of the Civil War Museum. The oldest object I have ever dug. The razor is so fragile that it broke in half, when I lifted it out of the hole. “
