Have you seen what’s new on our other blog, listed on our website? In this one, we talk about metal detecting on farms. These places have even more potential for treasure than you realize and we talk about how YOU can find the most!
Here’s a short sample:
Finds From Workers-
“Farming is one of the longest-running activities in the world. It was what allowed people to settle in one place after all. Because of this, you could find some pretty old treasure, depending on how long the farm or community has been around, as well as current clad. It’s not uncommon to find pocket spills from workers, either from working in the field or taking a break. Since farms have the soil broken up on a regular basis, you are likely to find things for many years to come.”

Treasure hunter J. Herbert “Herbo” Humphreys Jr lead a very adventurous life. Even though he had passed this world, we wanted to share some amazing things that he did. He used a ship known as The Beacon to find shipwrecks. One of the most successful techniques he used to find them was known as blowing holes. This technique, as the article pointed out, includes, “attachments placed over the Beacon’s propellers shot a forceful column of water down to the sandy, shallow bottom of the Little Bahama Bank.”
There are many great places to go metal detecting. In fact, we like to tell others to go to places where people gather or have gathered a lot. For example, parks, colleges and churches. Treasure hunter Trevor Ponte loves to hunt at old churches where people have gathered for decades. He said, “In Fairhaven there is an entire block of churches. You can bounce back and forth across the street. It’s awesome. It’s like a metal detector’s playground.” One of his favorite things to hunt for is coins. As the article mentioned, he has an obsession with them. He said on coins, “Coins are so nice looking.” He bought his first metal detector at 21 and has always enjoyed the process of finding treasure. He mentioned about finding treasure, “it’s all about how you’re feeling. You have to want to find something.” Trevor, we love your excitement about the hobby and wish you continued success!

The search was for something different, so this particular find was a nice surprise. Four ships were found clustered together with many vessels inside. As mentioned in the article, the vessels would have contained anything profitable to explain a journey that they set on. Read more on this! Click source below.
