: How's about having respect for a historic site and not vandalize it. It is illegal as well.

: So, I guess it's better to leave relics in the ground to rust away to nothing. Never to see the light of day and be enjoyed or researched by even one person. Never to be donated to a museum where many people can enjoy and study them. I seem to reacall seeing a picture forum on this web site which shows many relics that someone has collected. BTW, common items such as coins, bullets, bottles, and mineral specimens are exempt from these laws. The problem comes in the senseless vandalism of these sites. Huge holes dug, trash left, buildings torn apart, cemetaries dug up... that is unacceptable and should be against the law.
: Paul, I suggest you check out the Treasurenet.com page for helpful tips and more information on the proper way and places to use your new toy.

: Hi Paul, Using a metal detecting device in a designated historical area is a bit sticky , however using your intuition outside the area will bring you some interesting finds. try sweeping areas along trails, watering holes, caves, ect. lines of communication to the site. Research the area for historical activity such as battles. Most historical sites are well swept anyway. the historical "good stuff" is still on the trail.Good Luck, and good hunting.

I bought a gold metal detector (http://www.detectorall.com/categories/Gold-Metal-Detectors/) not long ago and in order to test whether it is useful I have used it to find underground metal goods that hidden in my garden, to my surprise it has found my mother's lost golden ring. Then I took it to the park and the gold metal detector find a few coins. Really amazing and I want to share it with your guys.

Depends on the Detector James, some are good for all types of metal, such as the White TDI.
