Happy BD!

Happy birthday to ya there AZBD and to you other fellers, have a good one.





2 and a half years ago I was

28 November 2013 - 07:40 PM

metal detecting for the very first time in my life with my brand new F-75 SE (it hadn't been out of the box less than a week).

But I had taken it up north to Ogemaw Co. where I'd gotten permission to detect on some private property, the older lady had

about 100 acres most of which was grassy fields but 20 or so acres was woods. And I had chose to search in the woods.

About 2 hours in on the 2nd. day I got me a faint iron signal and figured I'd do a little digging, dug that hole 'bout 18 inches round 

and a foot deep (swingin the coil occasionally as I dug), but then suddenly the signal was gone, swung it over my dirt pile and

there it was but real strong now. Sifted through the dirt with my earth magnet and quickly got me a loud "click"

I had found me a little black rock...see 

I have since had it cut, 2 thin slices set on slides, then sanded and polished the cut side of what is left.

It originally weighed 7.6gm. but it's down to about 4.5 now.

Any opinions? What do ya'll think?

What could this be???

Now I don't go out of my way to look fer these things, but when I'm out in the various wilderness environments

detecting or prospecting I'll stumble across these things, so I've started a small collection and as time goes by

I'll prolly find more.Attached File  DSCF0867 (1024x576).jpg   58.08KB   5 downloads

Had a little work to go do yesterday, but couldn't start till 10AM, so I thought I'd

check out a little park about a mile from the house where I had the work at.

Now I had seen a another feller detectin in this park a couple different times

over the summer, never stopped to talk to him cause I's busy goin somewhere

every time I'd seen em. And this park ain't too big either, a jungle gym/play structure,

a swingset, a couple picnic tables, a trash barrel, a few trees, 2 acres total maybe.

That feller musta just been learnin this summer, cause he missed a lot! I's there fer

just 2 hours from 0730-0930 and I dug up all this.
