    I have a White Spectrum XLT.It does a great job but my health will not allow me to use it like I once did. There are others on here that use detectors and have some interesting post.

    I wish I could afford a detecter. I have a feeling that I could really enjoy looking. When I was able I loved running a dredge looking for gold or walking streams looking for stones and even working some in hard ground to dig stuff up.

    I have a Bounty Hunter and I really enjoy getting out and using it. That said I don't get out and use it nearly enough. Seems hunting and fishing get in the way.

    Good morning Blue duck, and the rest of you metal detecting buddies. It's been a while sense I have been on the forum. I have switched from fishing back to metal detecting for a while, Just got to dang cold to fish. I found at the age of 69, and after being away from detecting for a while, it's not something that you can just drop back in to. It takes a little time to get back in to shape, My first trip out I never lasted more then ten minutes and didn't know if I was going to make it back to my car and for the next two days I hurt in Places that I didn't know could hurt. But now I can go out and last 4 or 5 hours. my last trip out I found an 1898s Barber dine, and a watch fob from the green river whiskey co. In Kentucky. It's a very nice piece that was made in the 1890s. On the front it has an old mule with a gallon jug hanging on the side of the saddle and it says, green river Whiskey. It has an old Black man in a tall hat holding on to the rains of the Mule. and On top of the fob It says, She was bred, and on the bottom it says, in old Kentucky. And on the back and in a circle around the fob it says, used for the past 12 years by the US Marine Hospital service. and in the middle of the fob it says, Paris 1900, St Louis 1904, Liege 1905, Portland 19005, Milan, Italy 19006, JamesTown 1907. This is a great looking piece to all to my fob Collection. I guess what I would like to say, Is if I can get out and still find stuff, anyone can. Just don't let your self get out of shape like I did. OH, and I almost forgot to Tell all you guys Mary Christmas and I hope you all have a Happy new year.

    Good morning Guys , I have been cleaning up some of my finds to put on e-bay and I took a couple of pictures, of the stuff that I have got cleaned, that fob I just found, the 1890s green river Whiskey fob from Kentucky, with the mule and the old black gentleman on it is in one of the pictures. I posted a little about it a couple of days ago but instead of putting it in to a new post I placed it in a quote. dummy Me, I am still learning this computer thing.
