Since I have not been out much lately


Recommended Posts

I decided to post this!
Along with finding gold detecting, I do find other treasures out in the Az. desert. A 350 dollar Garmin that I use all the time now, old flip phone, lots of mining relics (usually dug up) A rectangular steel door with latches on it and a data plate that was riveted to it at one time. Even found part of a human skull and had to take Peoria detectives back to the spot to investigate. 6 Mon. later they said they were able to ID the person.....hopefully it gave some body closure on their missing loved one. Anyone want to guess what the door and data plate are from? I know....will tell in a few days 1f642.png Enjoy!

Lets see what other "cool finds" you guys get?

Good stuff Tom.   :thumbsupanim

Here's my 'coolest' find from the last several months.

It was just laying there in the sand...     

Found the nuggets on the same day.   Good times.  :)

TOM H!  Now you have done it !  OPENED the door.  I have boxes of stuff that I have found like that . Some I know what they are and some no one has ever been able to ID. I will post some of them. Bottles are easy if the bottom and any embossing are shown. I would have never guessed the door and plate. The phone and the GPS well they would be missed but easily replaced ,  the brass bulldog head ?  Someone is hurting losing that !

Thanks for sharing and that is a great idea of a way to display you collecting. I'm curious about the orientation of the horse shoes? I was always told that that if you don't hang then with the ends up, your luck will fall out.

I never really thought about it. I just hung them up in a screw. Never really noticed anything different happening....just normal life. :)

I looked at all the saved places thinking they may have their home in it...but it looked like just Way points on motorcycle trails in the area. It works good. I use it every time I go out. Has too many features as I just use it to mark spots. :)

Dave,

I'll claim the GPS as mine.  I just can't remember where and when I lost it.
