10 Great Finds From The Ground! Metal Detector Treasures

We recently featured a video about great metal detector finds (if you missed it, click here to watch), and asked our readers if they’ve ever had any luck with a metal detector. We were blown away by some of the items found, and just had to share them! Take a look, and don’t forget to upload any photos you’d like featured on the site while you’re here!

“We assume its a cannon ball. Found in the creek near our home. We plan on taking it to a local military fort museum to let them determine age and make sure it’s a cannon ball and not some sort of counter weight etc.” –Terry

“Metal detector paid in full with this one! Great hobby if your patient and respect all areas that you hunt. Been doing it for over 25 years and its amazing what people have dropped or lost over the past 150 years waiting to be found.” – Ray
