Jim's Metal Detecting Site


Welcome! This site offers a place in which I can discuss the hobby of metal detecting, display various finds I have made and to talk about the tools and equipment I use, along with some tips and tricks.

Metal detecting is such a great hobby because it allows you to connect to the past by finding objects that may have not been touched for hundreds of years. From coins to jewelry and other relics, metal detecting gives you an avenue into the history of your area.
