I have always been fascinated by stories of hidden treasure, pirates, old coins, etc.
So, a little less than a year ago, i purchased two detectors.
A mid-range Bounty Hunter and a higher end "advanced" model by Famous Trails.
Now that the weather is warming up, i have a few sites in mind, one of them being an old amusement park from the 20s-30s.
I haven't really found anything worth alot of money, i read in another forum a gentleman found a ring, that appraised at about $20,000 USD. Detecting
can be very lucrative, if you do your homework.
My coin finds to date:
1891 IH (indian head)
1961 x 2
1964 x 3
1942 P ( war nickel, higher silver content)
1964 canadian 1-cent
2000 bohemian? nickel
2001 panama 1-cent
1998 mexican $10 peso coin
One of my stranger finds is a Dom Perignon thing, that possibly came off a barrel, which i found in my own backyard.
Inscribed on it.
