Thousands of Coins and Other Treasures in the Rocky Mountains

Using our Garrett GTI 2500s over the past 18 months, we have uncovered literally thousands of coins and other treasures in the Rocky Mountains of Montana. Searching forgotten ghost towns, mining camps, and old parks in the Anaconda area, our collection of artifacts and local memorabilia includes: an 1851 cavalry belt plate, an 1894 political pin proclaiming Anaconda as the capital of Montana, coins dating back to 1859, two 1924 presidential political pins, trade and saloon tokens, military buttons/pins/buckles, copper mining badges, copper arrowheads, Chinese coins left behind by immigrant workers in the 1800s, copper and silver spoons, medals, and much more.
