What Will You Find?

Don't Forget Your Own Backyard

I am the thrilled new owner of a Minelab X-TERRA 705. I received the machine on March 15th and the ground was still a little frozen here on long island but I couldn't wait so I started detecting in my own yard. My house was built in the early 70's so I didn't expect to find much in the way of old coins or such but I did get a great surprise! What appears to be a 1950's Hurley tractor and a 60's Tootsietoy Dump Truck! I can’t tell you the feeling that metal detecting has brought back into my life! It makes you feel like a kid at Christmas time all over again!
