A silver 14th Century Bishop's seal was found by a detectorist on the Isle of Man. Here is an article about that important find.
One find that I made many years ago not long after I started detecting was a large silver coin in great condition from Isle of Man. It was on a swimming beach in South Florida. I always remember that find because it was a big surprise to me at the time and I still don't know why it was there. It made more of an impression because I was a newby.
Here is a photo of that find.
A hoard of gold Tracian artifacts has been found.
Here is the link to that article.
The article has some nice photos of the iteems too,
Here is a photo of a coin that I saw before detecting it. It is about the size of this "o" and is a little above center and almost center, going left to right. It is covered with a thin layer of sand, but you can still see it.
It was the second that I eye-balled in a nice coin hole. When you find a nice coin hole or coin line, there will often be a few that you can see, and anytime you see one or more laying on the surface in the wet sand area, be sure to check for a coin hole or coin line. I recently explained a little about how and why that happens.
I've said this before, but I've known people who do not own a detector who walk the water line and have filled jars full of coins that they've found.
And also be alert to non-metallic finds and clues.
Here is a sample of some fossils found after Sandy.
Sandy provided the best beach detecting that we've had for some time on the Treasure Coast. Not only did a good number of people find cobs, but also a good variety of other types of treasures.
