If you wish to post a find, please send your pic to the club email. Include a brief description, depth, and detector used.


Found by Scott P.: “Quick 4th of July hunt. Some clad + 1917 25 centimes piece. AT Max at 4″ to 6″ down.”


Found by Julie W.: “My first piece of jewelry! [Congrats, Julie!–ed.] A necklace pendant found on the club hunt. Back has BRASS STER with JmC mark. Found 2-3 inches down with a Garrett Ace 400.”


Found by Rich B.: “Here’s a ring straight from the dirt on the club hunt. Thought it might be valuable, but it tested as cosmetic. Has a nick on the band. I’m learning jewelry repair and can use this for a sample. “


Found by Susannah K.: “Found this absolutely gorgeous ring on the club hunt. To say that my heart about jumped out of my chest is an understatement! But there’s just one teensy, tiny little flaw…it’s marked “Avon”. Still pretty though. About a 2-carat cubic zirconia  set in what I think is called their Classic pattern band. Found at 4″ with XP Deus.”


Found by Rob W.: “Coin hoard! Over $4 in clad found on the club hunt in one hole by a tree trunk and roots. Many Canadian quarters in there. Found with Teknectics T2.”

Found by Lee N.: “A hunt at an old homesite. Found this child’s miniature toy iron, 10 inches deep, using an Ace 250. It is dated from 1890 to 1900. Also used by salesmen of irons, during that period. After one week of soaking in vinegar and brushing, it looks like the one on display at the St. Charles Museum.”
