Stuff We Find That's Not Money

Our metal detector has a numerical code that can tell us what we are looking for most of the time. For example a quarter is usually 112 or two quarters together are around 126. A nickle or gold reads around 33, but so does a pull tab from a can so we dig a lot of them up!

When we metal detect we don't always find and keep just money.

Sometimes we find interesting non-money things.

This religious medal...says Adjesum per Mariam on it. It was deep so it had been there for a while.



And this little thing.



This pin that I've posted a picture of before is pretty interesting. Looks like someone put a lot of work into it.



Found "Teddys" tag. He belongs to Aricka! Actually, that one was down about 6 inches!



We also have found a few bullets.



And this...whatever it is. I say if weird things start happening at our house we get rid of it fast!!




I think that's what's so addicting about this hobby. You never know what you're going to dig up!!

In other news..I got a award at work! A patient sent in a request for me to receive this.



Always nice to be appreciated.

Thanks for visiting!
