Ring Found on the path

I decided to go back to a spot where I have found some interesting finds while metal detecting in the past to see if I could find anything else.

I’ve detected this spot in the past, and so have other people, but I knew that there are still good targets there to be found.  As I was detecting a path to a creek I got a penny tone on the AT Pro, and since I was diggin everything anyway, I decided to dig the target…

About 3 inches down, there it was, a ring in the plug. Like I said, it sounded like a penny, but it turns out that it’s stainless steel, I think… I know it isn’t silver, and it’s not marked anywhere, so I figure its just a junker.

The ironic part is that, after some time researching the symbol, it turns out that it says “GEM” where the gemstone would be…funny.

It’s been awhile since I’ve found a ring so I was happy to find a ring on an otherwise average hunt.  It goes to show you that some of those penny signals you pass up, are not pennies… Ya just never really know until ya dig ’em.

A ring is a ring,  maybe the next one will be GOLD!  Hey, a fella can wish can’t he?


I Highly Recommend the GARRETT AT PRO METAL DETECTOR available on Amazon

A day of metal detecting at the soccer fields

It was perfect weather for metal detecting here in the Ozarks so I decided to detect at a local park with soccer fields.  Sticking to the areas where observers sit I was able to find a few neat finds.

This Florida Soccer Referee’s coin sounded like a quarter but to my surprise it was something different.

That is why I like to detect at these type of spots, you seriously never know what you’re going to find…lol

Heads or Tails? I bet that Referee was kicking himself in the butt for losing his flip coin!

Later I found this LA Galaxy pin.  I don’t follow soccer, but apparently the LA Galaxy are a professional soccer team, so it was a cool find as well.

Since I’m a dad this was a neat find, knowing that a kid probably gave it to her dad, and he lost it, I would return it if I knew who’s it was. I’m sure it has sentimental value to him.

This TSC Hurricane medallion also sounded like a quarter, and since finding it I have learned some interesting information about the organization, and have shared a bit of it with you in the attached image below. 🙂

I was finding modern quarters everywhere, and it was fun cherry picking those high 80’s with my Garrett AT PRO Metal Detector.  At places like this, you have to dig pretty much everything if you want jewelry, so I dug some pennies until I got tired of them. HA!

I was hoping to find some jewelry, but all in all it was a fun day out metal detecting in great weather. I had fun, and that’s what really matters! Oh yeah, almost forgot, I found a spot that I can’t wait to detect in about a month or so, a spot I’m excited about!

Wish you all the best of luck on your next hunts! 


Just a Note: I do NOT condone metal detecting ON a soccer field. That is frowned upon by everyone from the players to the parks departments.  Always use extreme care when detecting at public places so as to leave no holes for others to step in.  Always err on the side of caution and leave no trace of your presence.  I was hunting by shade trees and edges, just FYI.


Thinking about buying an AT Pro? Please consider purchasing the

Necessity is the Mother of Invention

‘Necessity is the mother of invention’ which means necessity or need can encourage inventive solutions to challenging situations.

Fellow metal detectorist “Trickworm” shared his solution to saving over $60.00 when he designed this Lesche Sheath and Pro-Pointer Combo. You can also do this simple modification yourself, and it won’t cost you additional money for an aftermarket sheath!

Digger Pro-Pointer Combo sheath

This Do It Yourself project merely requires determining the angle that suits your needs for easily removing the pinpointer without hitting the guard on your digger.

Then, just sew your Garrett Pro-Pointer sheath to your digger sheath, and you have an awesome combination that keeps all of your diggin’ tools in one easy to reach place.

That means less fumbling around for your digger or pinpointer and more goodies in the pouch ! Tip: Be sure to only sew on the edges.

Enjoy my friends!
