Stories about metal detecting are both interesting and exciting. We all like to hear or read about what others are finding with their metal detectors.

This page not only shows what others are finding, but also gives you a chance to show your finds.  Use the form below!

The best story with a picture will be featured on my website as well as on my Facebook page. It's easy to do, its fun, and you'll have the opportunity to have your own unique webpage. But in order to be FEATURED, you must follow the guidelines I have outlined below.

In addition, each month I will pick the best story and picture of a find. The winner will receive for FREE, the download to my Exploring Historys Treasures, metal detecting, TV series. 13 half hour shows.  My popular TV series is no longer being shown on television, and it is no longer available in DVD format.

To be FEATURED, you must provide a picture of the find with your brief story. Your story will not be accepted if a picture of a find is not provided. Your story must be at least 300 words. I may edit for clarity.
