Found some goodies,at least for me. I went out a few weeks ago to look for my MIL pliers she lost in her back yard. I didn't find them but I did run across some odd stuff. I found one old bottle she is using now as a vase. I found one area that was really odd. It went off and I dug up a flat piece of metal. Then I ran it over it again and it went off again. It did this a few times in a mall 2x2 ft area. I found all kinds of stuff there. I found what looked to be a part of a kids roller skate,probably 40s or before,various stuff. I dug up until it didn't go off anymore. My detectors not that sensitive,a cheapo radio shack model but it dooes good for the money. I was wondering about that hole. I asked my wife and MIL if they ever dumped,burried or burned stuff there. They never had. The stuff was about 6 inches under the ground. I was wondering if this could have been a marker of something burried deeper. Does anyone know if people marked stuff like this and burred their treasures deeper? I probably couldn't detect stuff deeper than a foot.
I did find a old single sided ax head. It was burried about 6 inches down. No wood handle on it. I thought it was odd that someone would leave it like that. I am going to clean it up using electroylitic method. I have used this for years and it really works. It gets all the rust off by making it release from the metal. Anyway It was nice to find the stuff. I am going to go out there again before they knock everything down for the road project.
