Hello All, and anyone into metal detection, i haven't bought one yet, but its been on my TO-Do list for about ten years now, and i'm always trying to pick up info,
Question is, i found an old homstead, actually theses a bunch of them around my home in Rural western N.Y.
i went and walked around one today with a rake in hand, house looks like its been gone for about 40 to 50 years, but there is a well defined old field stone outline on the foundation, much of it caved in, and out, i can even tell were the outhouse was, well, front porch, much of how the house was positioned, with a few out buildings, one looks like an old sugar shack, the roof is still present on that one,
Well today buy just scrapping leaves, and looking around, found a bunch of metal objects, moslty nails, door hinges, complete door lock set, shell casings, ect,
Were is the best place to start looking with a detector?? the outter perimeter of the field stone, or right at the bottom, on the inside of the basement, or craw space, or what ever it was?? thanks in advance, and thanks for allowing me to join the site, John E. Petersen,
