We have another incredible story for you all! This week’s Treasure Find of the Week comes from Tyler J. back in March. He wanted to hunt some older property. The property owner of a home built in 1903 approached him and said his grandmother lost a diamond ring under ones of the trees by a close by pond. After seeking permission, he went out hunting to find the ring. After the owners wife was there anxious for Tyler to find the ring, he did discover a 1942 British three pence that he found! He also found three wheats and an old pocket knife. After leaving that location, he found another home built in 1880 and was approached by this saying from the owner, “You will not find anything.”
He explained how different people use different metal detectors that all don’t do the same thing. The owner said “I’ve been here for 25 years and the place has been detected at least 5 times since I’ve been here, but, you’re more than welcome to give it a shot. Just fill in your holes.” He was about ready to quit, but after his intuition told him to return, he was so glad he did. He ended up finding a class ring and his first gold ring! After going home, he discovered the ring was 10k gold and had the initials B.L.W. He went on a mission to find the owner. He decided to use social media to his advantage and joined an alumni page on Facebook. He ended up with a lead from one of the group members and you will not believe what happens next! Read the rest here.
He used his Garrett AT Pro to hunt.

In a recent interview with the South Wales Evening Post, 60 year shopkeeper Geoff Baker explained that he has a strong desire to help return lost rings to their owners. Recently, on Swansea beach, he discovered two rings. He said on the discovery, “They were found close together on the high tide mark. It’s hard to tell how long they’ve been there, but it was if they’ve stayed close together hoping to be found. As soon as I realized what they were, I knew I had to try and find the owner.” On the rings themselves, he also stated, “They are of high grade gold, one is an engagement ring and the other is a wedding ring. Both are inscribed inside, but sadly not with a name or phone number.”
We have always believed metal detecting to be one of those hobbies that greatly benefits the mind in addition to the body. One couple is making headlines for helping veterans everyone suffering with PTSD. Derek McLennan and his partner Sharon McKee are both history fans and have started an organization called Beyond the Beep. This organization is meant to help those traumatized veterans that have served who have served in Iraq, Afghanistan and other places around the world. Both Derek and Sharon understand that the hobby can help them deal with the horrors of war and the psychological effects of it. Many veterans deal with PTSD and just having something else fun to enjoy can mean so much! Derek said on the hobby, “The veterans love it. The mental health benefits of detecting are widely recognized within the detecting community. It is a great hobby to help you unwind and relax, focusing solely on your next discovery.” One veteran said in the article, “Until I started metal detecting with the help of Sharon and Derek, I wouldn’t leave my home. I knew I had to get out of my house to exercise and live free from the effects of my post-traumatic stress disorder but nothing I tried worked until I began metal detecting. Just being out in the countryside with fellow vets and people who care is amazing.” It’s incredible to see what this couple is doing to help other veterans.

The Columbia Daily Harold had a chance to speak with a fascinating Civil War-era treasure hunter named Eddie Glasco. He is on a journey to find as many Civil War relics as he can. He has been in the treasure hunting hobby for over 22 years and wonders about the history behind every item he finds. He said to The Columbia Daily Harold, “My two all-time best finds are a U.S. belt buckle from the Civil War and a Confederate wreath buckle I unearthed at Woodland Park.” The finds of the most value are placed in a bank and the more common pieces he keeps in shadow boxes. There are certain things he is able to part with as far as his collection goes. As the article states, he sold a CSA-marked belt buckle he found for $3,500!
