Talking Weird things you do when you are a detectorist

For example,
finding a Canada token at the beach some 7.500 miles away in SouthAmerica and finally this token ends attached to a magnet on the freezer at home

I planed in the past to make a wall hang on a pice of wood with an inspirational saying spelled out in odd finds of metal! Still plan on doing a more personal one for the wifey! Can make modern art!! I'm sure there's some scrapers out there and artist who would love a medium such as metal!!

Cool lamp!!
Love the idea with the magnet and Canadian flag!!
One could make key chains also hmmm the ideas are flowing what we can do with trash finds and good finds alike!

Hey ! -Thanks guys !
Past summer 2016 I found this massive brass piece deformed by explosion.
To this date I could not ID it,but most probably some exploded ammo.
I should electrolyse it ,later polish it and see how could I work it or do something artistic with it
