2015 was a good year of metal detecting for me. I had several “firsts” in 2015 and found a few really cool items! One of the best parts of 2015 is the fact that last year I got to detect in several new areas!
This coin is a 1995 Irish 20 Pence coin that I found on a decommissioned Golf Course. It was about 7-8 inches down, and was found with the Minelab E-Trac Metal Detector.
This is my First Ever Barber Dime found metal detecting! I was wondering if I would ever find a Barber, and using the E-Trac metal detector I found this dime 7 inches deep by a tree row in a field.
This is my First Good Luck token found while metal detecting. This token is from Hedrick, Iowa and was found near soccer fields that were once a horse riding trail. This token was every bit of 7 inches deep and was found with the Garrett AT Pro metal detector.
This is a World War II Sterling Flight Wings Sweet Heart Bracelet and it was found about 4 inches deep on private property while the owner was watching me detect. This item would have been sent home to a wife or girlfriend and is more rare that regular flight wings.
This is a picture of my First 3 ring day including two .925 rings. The funny part is, the hunt prior at this same location I had a 2 ring day. All in all at that location, on land, I have found 6 rings so far. I know there is more!
This is my First class ring, and it happened to be a West Point Military academy ring The owner was quite happy to receive his ring back, he had lost it over 15 years ago. Surely he thought he’d never see it again.
This picture shows the silver total for two hunts! The first hunt I found 5 silvers which included my First Washington quarter. The second hunt there was a 4 silver hunt where I also puled a silver ring that isn’t pictured. That was a great detecting spot!
Likewise, I also got to metal detect with a few new friends in 2015, it was a great year of metal detecting.
Here’s to an even better 2016! Happy Hunting out there guys n gals!
