I've just bought a pretty decent metal detector and would like to find something pretty cool. Would anyone know of a place I could go hunt to find old things?? I would love to find a button off a confederate soldiers uniform something unusal and old. Any ideas??

You need to search around old barns, pastures, or homeplaces to locate most things but also u will find a lot of junk too such as nails, popcans, etc.

Got it at East End Pawn in Middlesboro. They're a White dealer, I paid 4 something for it. It works really well, just haven't found anything antique yet..

The beach by the spillway is on federal property, national park remember, therefore it is illegal to metal detect there. Please know what u r suggesting b4 u get someone arrested!
