So it started raining as I got home from an all day meeting at work and wanted to test real quick the Simplex+.  So quickly to a pine section of our acreage we have that has never been disturbed by modern methods.  However, I hear that there use to be an old logging road that ran across the property and my 7 acres which is mainly the western side of has a descent down to a winding creek bed that still flows.  

I begin testing real quick the detector and get a solid hit but as I recall low single digit TID of 4 maybe hopping around a bit at a buried depth of about 4-5”.

As you will see the sections have opposing round eyelets where it looks like driving spikes would be placed to secure them down. The raised rail sections look eerily like rails a train like wheel would sit on???

So attached are the photos of the sections of metal dug.......very strange and quite honestly remind me of railroad rail for like a hauling cart.  Never seen anything like this in person and certainly not from a find.

Thoughts or suggestions?

   Not sure on those GR! But kac may be on to something with the guide rails! Maybe saw guide rails for cutting dimensional lumber! Look for other related items! Someone here will surely have the info! It would be very helpful if you would put something in the picture for scale! I can't judge there size as is!

   But i would be curious to know what can be found in and around your creek! People and items tend to collect around creeks and other water sources!

   Good luck hunting up some more goodies!👍👍

Suggestion (to all posters of photos):  include something to show scale.  In your case I see a background brick so for those of us here in North America -- probably a standard size.  But other parts of the world may have different standards (or no standards at all).  Rulers that have both metric and SAE (e.g. inches) units are best.  Some people use common USA coins for scale which the rest of the world has a chance of recognizing....

Interesting pieces you've shown.  Are they attracted to a magnet?  Do they show signs of having been broken/cut or is that their manufactured length?  I'm stumped.

      Out detecting the other day and had a signal on the Monster that sounded like your typical hot rock but when I dug the hot rock out it didn't look like my typical hot rocks in this area?  So I took the time to flip the rock over and ran the coil over the other side of the rock and the Monster said GOLD!  So after some scraping I see nothing and I'm too busy hunting and throw the rock in my pouch to bust it open later at home.  Needed to go into my pouch for something tonight and found the rock I'd already forgot about and scraped the piss outta it and saw nothing, ran coil over scrapings and the rock and still a gold signal but no sight of gold?  Took rock inside and took the steel wool to it and finally saw the glint of a little gold so proceeded scrubbing cautiously and found the little flake.  This guy almost got away.  Moral of the story...if it sounds like gold you might want to pack it home for a THOROUGH check.....

      Found this brass tire stem and cap down deep. I don't know what it is off of or how old it could be. Strange it was in the water.

      Can any of you tell me what this is?  A gift from my father when I was young.  He traveled all over the world so his location does not help.  It is about the size of a large hand.

      Meteorite or rock?

      Found this today kind of looks like possibly a Chromite meteorite but not sure so hoping some one could help. Browsed some pictures of
      small Chromite meteorites on google images and seen some similar.

      Dimension is about 1.5" diameter and about 40 grams heavy.
      Not magnetic checked with magnet and my Garrett Pro-Pointer II detects nothing
      Found in London, Ontario, Canada

      Any help would be great
      Thanks
      John

      Morning!
      Can you tell me what it is? I found this in Central Florida and the only "rocks" we have here are fossilized corals. But it was near the "landscaping rocks" pile people in FL buy and litter their property with, so it could be part of this pile and in that case brought from out of state. It is very heavy and feels solid. 2 corners are chipped and some different yellow material shows through.
