Treasure hunting in Louisiana has some advantages. Besides the coin shooting in the parks and schools, there are relics abound. Just another day of hunting and then it happens...a civil war bullet pops out of the ground! Then the search is slower...another one! 45 minutes later...5 in the bag! Not only the bullets, a civil war era buckle right under a 3 ring minnie ball. Camp lead comes to light and some pieces of shrapnel from a cannon round. A piece of a fuse. I think I have stumble onto a small camp from 1863. Another hunt and it's jewelry galore! A diamond ring, a fake Rolex watch (my eyes got really wide on that one), and a class ring. I returned the class ring to it's owner. Siler rings, gold rings, junk rings, bracelets, chains....the list goes on. My best day is 7 rings and a silver chain. I coin shoot alot and it pays off every time. Every 2 months and it's off to turn in the coins. In the last year alone I turned in $1341.26! Silver coins come once in a while..."V" nickles, mercury dimes, liberty halves....and so on. Silver religious medals of all shapes and sizes. Sometimes you get lucky and pull a gold one! Tons of stuff on every hunt. Clad coins, silver, gold...it's all out there waiting for someone to come along and find it. But that isn't the only thing this hobby gives...a beautiful sunrise or sunset, birds of all kinds, ect. So to those of you thinking about metal detecting...all I can say is, "Why wait?" You can just about find anything. I trust White's machines. They are the best on the market (my opinion). The service is unmatched. So....the treasure is out there. All you have to do is find it!
