Jay Longley finds from March 6th to April 6th 2018
These are my best finds with a metal detector from March 6th to April 6th. I used my inexpensive Garrett Ace 250 to find them all except for the big wrench at the bottom of the photo. The top 3 coins are a 1901 Barber dime, a 1906 V nickel, and an 1899 Indian Head Cent. The next row of coins are the wheat cents that I found, including a beautiful 1927-D valued at between $7-$25. The horseshoe-shaped item next to the Cub Scouts handkerchief holder is a copper Lone Ranger badge, probably from the late 1930s. The T-shaped brass item with the circles on the ends is marked Ford in script and I need to find out what I can about it. All I know is that it's from the very early Ford Motor Company. I also found a few pieces of old costume jewelry, a bunch of other old items, and the numerous modern coins at the bottom of the picture. This year, my #1 goal is to find gold (rings, jewelry, and coins) but I didn't find a piece of gold last month. I also found a lot of small brass and copper items, that are not pictured, which I put in my recyclable metal bins. In order to find all of this, I'd estimate I dug about 10 pieces of trash for each keeper that I recovered. I love this hobby!
