If you wish to post a find, please send your pictures to the club email, along with a brief description of the item, depth found, and detector used.


Found by Rob W.: “First silver  with my new Teknetics T2. Found at 5 inches.”


Found by Susannah K.: “It’s going to be a good year! Found this on my second hunt. Looks to be silver but no marking. I will test it shortly. Top wreath end with three roses, plus the little bird, were found hooked together but fell apart when I cleaned them. Other piece was found beside them and turned out to be the bottom pendant piece. Don’t know what kind of stone. All very delicate. Found 4-5 inches down with XP Deus on Full Tone setting” [Update–Silver tested as 800 and stone was jade.]


Found by Ron P.: “I went to a local park the week before Christmas while the weather was still great.  After finding a fair amount of clad and pull tabs I
dug this ring out of the ground at a depth of about 3 inches using my AT Pro.  It has a sterling silver band and I discovered the stone is a white Zircon when I showed it to our favorite Jeweler.  Even though the value is low on this ring, I am still excited with the find.”

Found by Susannah K: “First hunt of the year, and as you can see by the ice, a darn cold one. Found $1.45 clad, one earring, and one Disney inscribed pendant. Two of the quarters were an aboveground coin spill, thank goodness, right on either side of someone’s footprint. All found 1 – 1-1/2 frozen inches down with XP Deus, Trash setting.”


Found by Pat R.:  Cub Scout Jamboree pin? Cub Scouts have different neckerchief slides for grades 1-5. Three down, two to go! Found with an AT Pro at 2-3 inches depth.
