Anyone here metal detect?
I was thinking about it, we never have any threads on /out/ about it for some reason
does it get boring? how expensive is it to get into it? I know a guy that found jewelry sometimes and he'd make money from it is it hard to sell them and everything?
Let me know where you like to detect and I will make sure you find plenty of pennis
>have a cabin from 1940s on a foundation from 1830s
>get cheap metal detector
>start cruising around cabin, cellar holes, and other foundations
>start getting some good beeps along an old stone wall.
>big piece of bright white quartz in middle of old fieldstone wall.
>detector is going crazy right at stone wall.
>digging, digging more, keep digging.
>can't find jack squat.
>dreams of Zihuatanejo are leaving.
>can't figure out the massive beeping.
>discover big piece of old tractor equipment embedded in stone wall ABOVE the quartz piece.
A lot of WWII equipment, ammunition, bombs, guns and even mines. The rarest find was Mauser c96 in pretty good condition and SS dogtag (i dont know shit about dogtags so i ask my friend if he can sell it) sold for 450$, mauser for like 300$
I do metal detecting on beaches sometimes, not bad usually make $20 or so in coins and find some weird shit, a lot of it is trash but every now and again you get something really old or some jewelry you can sell or hopefully return and make someones day, I always take mine whenever I go hiking or diving never know what youll find
>For starters , that shit aint your just because you dug it up.
ill be sure to tell the big mining and energy companies for you anon
I've been on out for a couple years now, and somehow missed any hatred. Is that true?
I'm the guy who greentexred above. I have no plans on cruising around the beach, and my town common has been totally gleaned (NE here).
I'm psyched to look around our property and see what I can find. I'm PSYCHED to get down into the old well this summer. I'm imaganing hundreds of old coins that were thrown in.
All those wishes I'll destroy.
