    Have you ever used a metal detector to look for treasures of any kind?

    I just a read an article about a first time treasure hunter in Britain who went out and found about $160,000 worth of Roman coins. I suppose that is a lot more likely in Britain than the US.
    I wonder what kind of things people find here?

    I only used one once, when I was in High School.  I had to rent a metal detector.  I had my high school ring fly off of my finger when it was cold outside (no gloves).  I looked where I thought I lost it, but never found it.

    I have not used a metal detector but I have always wanted one.  On the beaches in Venezuela where I lived, I imagined many women would have lost jewelry there, and it was probably easy to find if only I had had a metal detector!

    We went 'hunting here in Florida and found a mans silver bracelt. It was an ok find but nowhere near as excting as many of the others. Look on Youtube at all the crazy, interesting and valuable things found they have a variety of videos.

    No I have never done this. However, my husband thinks that we should. He always says it would be a good idea to go to a beach with a metal detector. This conversation seems to come up on every vacation we go on. This is a great idea.

    No, but it is something I've always wanted to do.  I was at the beach once and a man was using a metal detector.  I remember he found a gold earring.  With the price of gold it was probably worth a fair amount of money.  Where I used to live, people would use them to find civil war memorabilia.

    No,but I'd like to! Of course I wouldn't find big stuff like that.Lucky if I'd find some coins. I guess you have to pick your spot.
    It's kind of weird to go looking on the beach for someone's lost ring or other jewelry.
    I wouldn't want anyone to see me do that.
    Thanks for the question.
