    good point Tsarevna --my way of documenting old coins would be to say "cool, look what I just found!"

    I think that is the best way of documenting old coins!

    Leave the artifacts there, so they can remain in-context.

    If you want an old coin, an old key, an old doorknob, go buy one at an antique store.
    I agree, take nothing, leave it as it was. The only thing I take is pictures, pictures are cooler anyway than something that will sit in a drawer.

    I'm a bit torn on the subject, I'm very into ghost towns and a co-founder of the Utah Ghost Town Project. On the flip side I'm a newbie metal detector and a member of the Utah Treasure Hunting Club, a group that metal detects all over the state.

    Often private collections do end up in museums, and 'official' collections are lost or worse yet sites are reclaimed without any site surveying or searching done.... conundrums.
