Have you dreamed of locating a buried treasure?
The most difficult part in the search may be researching the treasure story. You cannot hope that blind luck will find you that treasure. Going on very little information will only bring dissatisfaction in your search. I have listed on this page a few stories about buried treasures in your State, but you need to research them further.
For more information on where and how to research for lost treasures please visit my page here.
Often I am asked if metal detectors should be used when searching for buried treasures. My answer is always the same. “Yes“. However, do not purchase an expensive detector. Breaking the bank to buy your first detector is often a mistake. The expensive models are often hard to learn for the newbie to the hobby. You do not need an expensive first detector. Spending a few hundred dollars is all you need to do.
If you are interested in a metal detector or accessories, please visit my online store.
