Does anyone metal detect around here?
My hobby is rescuing old coins in the ground at old private properties with a metal detector. I've done this hobby for a few months now and follow a strict code of ethics.

Locations and permissions wanted (pre 1940)

> old homes
> churches
> picnic groves (church, community)
> swimming holes
> fairgrounds (past, no longer used)

It is not profitable. The coins are rarely valuable. It is just a hobby that I enjoy on my days off.

No visible evidence of my hunt will remain. No open holes. Metallic trash removed. Identifiable items are returned to the owners (e.g. engraved class rings / family heirlooms.)

Do you have such a property?
Do you know someone who would grant permission?
