    Naw, that never matters to me.. I've found enough gold and silver to pay for my 3 machines but I haven't sold a thing yet.

    It's a 1950's flintlock cap gun called the "midget". Seems to be rare to dig one or so I've learned.

    In better condition they can sell for around $100 or so but this one has seen better days. The trigger guard is gone, hammer won't open, flaking.. etc. It's just a cool piece for the collection.

    It's 5 1/2" long.. Pretty small for a cap gun

    The Sterling Silver coin purse won "Find of the Month" on an English website. It beat out Roman, gold and silver coins! UY.. I entered the contest as a joke and told them that I'm tired of digging American junk and I hope they know how good they have it. I won a $250 gift certificate for supplies.

    The Watch Camera will be in an upcoming issue of a popular UK treasure hunting mag. A dude contacted me yesterday to ask permission to use the story and photos.

    I didn't realize I gave no description..

    50's HUBLEY Flintlock Cap Gun.. It's pretty small for a cap gun at 5 1/2". It looked so nice coming out of the ground that I thought I dug a sterling silver decorative piece. I got quite the adrenaline rush of this and I found it at 8 a.m. too. It was an awesome day

    UPDATE ON THE COIN:

    I looked on a couple websites but got confused trying to decipher the coin so I ended up emailing one of the dudes and this was his response to the bottom pic

    That is the Emperor Ch'ien Lung who ruled from 1736 to 1796. NO way to determine where in that period it was made.

    These coins were still commonly circulating in China until about the 1890's, but after that they were commonly seen as decorations on sewing baskets made in China until about the 1940's so many of them arrived in the USA in the early 1900's.

    Officially my oldest find.

    This thread is super interesting. I might buy a metal detector myself.

    I'm not sure what your laws are there on metal detecting but you best look into it because you could face some stiff fines if you hunt land that's protected from an archeological standpoint. I bet you could make some awesome finds though... I was invited to Corfe Castle in England for a get together which would totally rock but there's no way in hell I can swing it right now.. I'll see what I can find out.

    I never did buy a detector after finding out that 90% of the land around here is either A: Private, or B: Government. Since this who area is essentially a Civil War battlefield, all the govt. land is off limits.
