Was on a football field today using the 15" in park 1 and hit a jumpy signal. I decided to dig it because it was loud and chaotic sounding... probably like was said about it by the parents of the teen who owned it originally. When I got it home, I checked to see if there was a tape in it. The tape cover popped off and emptied a full load of wet sand onto the floor...still being obnoxious.  This is the first one of these that I have ever dug. Bucket list: cassette player...check.

I'd be more impressed if it was an 8 track :)

Actually in pretty good shape for sitting in the dirt for so long.

Plastic is supposed to last 100's of years. I'm guessing someone will come out with a plastic detector some day after it has been banned. I can just imagine someone 200 years from now cursing all the idiots who threw their plastic bottle caps on the ground.

      I and several detecting buddies supported a local museum a year ago by metal detecting a Second Seminole Indian War site that was occupied by the 2nd Dragoons from December 1837 to March of 1838. Below is just a sampling of our finds from that area. Many more uniform buttons, musket balls of various calibers and such not shown here came from our hunts.

      We suspect that one of their supply boats either sank or capsized since all the finds below were in the same general 25 square yard area. In digging down to retrieve these artifacts, I did hit wood deep in the muck ergo our thoughts that these finds came from a lost boat.

      The fort was constructed on the shores of a local lake and all finds thus far have been from that lake. We've yet to find the exact location of the fort itself but we have a good idea where it was. A modern road and house construction however prevents us from successfully searching the suspected area.

      period ring


      buttons and a few musket balls


      Bayonet with scabbard


      I found this breast plate in knee deep water and 16 inches deep in the lake muck, This is just the way it came from the muck. No cleaning was needed!


      raw anchor after encrustation was removed. It took two of us over 45 minutes to extract this anchor from the lake's muck.

      One of our displays we made for the museum.

      We'll be headed back to the site in the coming year.

      Shook the dust off my ATP and spent a few hours stomping through the snow in the woods. Found a nice bronze skeleton key, IH in pretty good shape and this 3 cent trime which I never heard of before nor seen one. Wasn't too deep stuff tends to stay high in with the pine trees. First thought it was from a broken button or something.
