    First Detecting Finds 2017

    After years of watching Metal Detecting videos from Dig Fellas, and some other well-known channels I decided to give metal detecting a try. I didn't want to spend a ton of money on a machine so I decided to start with an entry level Garrett ACE 150. On my first hunt here in Rhode Island I didn't really expect to find much else other than clad and can slaw. Boy was I wrong!! I found Silver coins, Civil War Buttons, 1800's Indian Head Cents, Gold Buckles, Colonial shoe buckles, and much more. This was only my first hunt with a metal detector.



    I quickly made a YouTube channel to share the history I found with others and kept digging. So far I have uploaded about 20 videos of my finds. Some of my favorite finds include a 1782 Hibernia Half Penny, a King George II Britannia from 1756, and a complete dog nosed pewter spoon.
