Yes!!!! Great success at last. Treasure! And there it was, lurking just below the surface. 4 inches in to be exact. Just like my detector said it would be. Who knows what else waits to be unearthed. It's like night of the living dead. Just waiting to be found by the unsuspecting.

Just spent part of the afternoon on the familly farm in Letellier. In the first 15 minutes I found a Sterling silver Maple leaf pin / broach. The rest was a nice mixed bag of stuff. Some copper and brass and aluminium too. The rocks and glass was on the surface. Just picked it for fun. Had a blast. Time just flies though, two hours went by so fast. The silver Maple leaf brooch was a real joy to find. The glass and ceramic I just picked up for fun off the land. The metal detector will not hit on non metals of course.

I made this today. It's a sieve for sand at the beach. It is yet untested but it should easily clear through a spade full of sand in short order. The squares are perfect to hold dimes and pennies. I put a hand garden shovel next to the sieve for scale.

Some of the highlights after they've been cleaned. A small lock mechanism... if only I could find the key. A turn buckle. Square nails of course. Pieces of copper and aluminium too. The feather is from a Red Tailed Hawk. No metal detector was needed. No animal was hurt in the making of this production... One of the small violet glass pieces must have been something quite nice and fancy at one time. Lots of coal too. Oh.... that pipe..... I gave up after the 10 feet or so... my detector said it goes on for another 6 feet or more at 8" in. I gave up, plus it won't fit in the van anyways. The things that lurk below...

My first coin. A 1934 King George V penny. Rough shape but a penny non the less. Second good find is an early muzzle loader bullet. My nephew tells me it's about mid 1800's. There's what looks like a bent copper spoon, a watch mechanism or inside plate, a beautiful blue glass piece, a copper or brass sprayer nozzle, an iron belt pully and what looks like a brass land survey marker. I can't make out the writing if there is any. Oh and a big brass ring. I'd hate to see the finger that that fit on. The white Santa is plastic. Other picture is the landscape after I got done. Looks like the surface of the moon. Also found another 10 + foot pipe for my brothers to dig out. That might have been the water pile from the well " Chez 'Toine".

Yes, something we've all known for a long time.... I need professional help. Lol Don't we all eh. So I'm calling on Pam's expertise here. Here is a picture of the latest pieces of ceramics that can possibly be identified. Have fun Pam. Also, I came across this little jem. It was buried about 10 " deep. Great detector.... but then again, how could you miss. It probably weighs about 20 lbs. I like to call it: The gateway to Hell. More like a portal really. Open er' up and there's the fire. Well should you need to know, the portal now resides in our front lawn. Talk about repurposing and or recycling.
