I wrote this at the end of March and never posted it. Allergies (and I somehow managed to get poison ivy on my hands so I’ve been dealing with the rash for the past week and a half) are keeping me from doing much metal detecting at the moment, so enjoy these from March!
Most of my finds lately weren’t worth posting about. Fencing, aluminum foil, bottle cap, nails… I do have a few notable finds as seen in these photos:
I have no idea. My dad has no idea either. These triangles were all under the electric pole. We think it may have something to do with that. None are rusting or are in bad shape… I may have to find something artsy to do with them. And the one on the left reminds me of a hat. So I may have to make that happen. XD
However, I think the best “finds” weren’t metal. It was seeing God’s creation as winter ends. 😊 I didn’t just take a metal detector outside – I brought my camera too. Here are some of the other non-metal treasures:
If I had known there was what looks like a bird and two squirrels in this tree, I would have taken more photos of it. Happy accident. XD
This gem was waiting for me that morning.
I’m not sure what this is, but there is a lot of this grass stuff and it looked so orange from the morning sun. After this, I accidentally got it all over me. Turns out shaking it will cause it to fly everywhere like dandelions. Good thing I remembered my allergy medicine. XD
Dewdrops made everything sparkle.
Morning sun and a dying leaf? It sounded like it could make a decent photo so I went for it.
HUGE knotty tree! Didn’t find anything under it but the tree itself is pretty incredible.
This wood was such an odd find. The pattern was so strange I got a photo of it.
At the end of the hunt, this is what I ended up with. Coax, clamp, metal ring, a metal pipe, and a spoon. I recognized the spoon. It went missing about 15 years ago. One of my dogs stole it and I never found it. Now I know why. They buried it. XD The best find I didn’t need the metal detector for…
Yup. This was sticking out of the ground. Interestingly, the seal doesn’t appear to be broken, so I guess the Coke inside just spewed out? But there is no residue from it. So weird. But it’s a cool glass bottle. I assumed it’s 1980’s or later because there is a faded barcode on it and bar codes didn’t become popular until the 1980s. XD And I was correct. I Googled it and found other bottles that are 1980’s vintage. Of course, those looked a LOT better than this one because they haven’t spent who knows how long buried. XD
(Thanks to T.R. Noble for making this for me! <3)
