Lost Eyeglasses Found…

 

 

Eyeglasses found!

I didn’t know eyeglasses were so expensive these days…I don’t wear them (yet anyways…but prolly need them) and had no clue. I was contacted by a gentlemen today through an old acquaintance of mine whom I haven’t seen in years. It seems people remember me as “the guy that metal detects”. This is another example of – no good deed goes unpunished. Continue reading

Hill Country Lithics…

Perdiz Point

I went to the Texas hill country to visit a friend and hunt arrowheads. I spent about four days walking, digging, detecting and even exploring an old mine shaft.

We didn’t find much detecting but this was one of the best relic hunts I’ve ever had. The first day was spent digging and sifting in a peach orchard that produced a few points. Continue reading

A Charming Bracelet…

XLT and Bracelet

I was contacted by a friend of friend of a friend about a lost bracelet. I met the homeowner who explained that they had a big family BBQ in the backyard about two weeks prior. During the BBQ her niece lost a silver charm bracelet and was just heartsick over it. I look at the yard and notice the grass was quite short and ask if it had been mowed recently. Twice since the BBQ she said. Now I’m thinking we might be digging this bracelet up one charm at time. Luckily that wasn’t the case. In less than 10 minutes I get a signal on the XLT and part the grass to see the bracelet in a nice little clump. The girl wasn’t present when I found it but the aunt called a few days later to thank me again and tell me that her niece was ecstatic to get her bracelet back.

Class Ring Returned…

While metal detecting in a nearby lake with the Tesoro Stingray I dug my first class ring. It was in waist deep water and down in the clay. The clay did not wipe off easily so I couldn’t see the year at first. As I rubbed and rinsed I could see that the ring appeared like new. I figured it was a recent drop but as I got to the date…wow… Continue reading

Locket With a Surprise…

I hunted a yard in a nearby town today using a Garrett GTAx1000. Looking at the house you wouldn’t expect much. Average frame home built in the 50’s. I figured it might be good for some silver Rosies or the likes. As far as coins, I didn’t find any silver just wheaties and a 1953 play coin. I did, however, make an interesting find with a locket. It was corroded shut and looked to be fake. When I got home I had planned on throwing it in the junk jewelry box but after prying it opened I saw that it held a little surprise. Continue reading
