Default 3 Day Organized hunt (updated full video)

I was the videographer for a 3 day hunt...and got to detect for free between filming segments. You may have seen the organizer on Dig Wars.

Anyway, Many many far superior finds but here's what I pulled between filming for him.

Well. That's a great question, it's crumbly like pewter..I can't quite sort it out.

Very cool finds! Glad you got to do some hunting in between shoots and find some goodies for yourself.

Nice group of artifacts, congrats! They sound interesting and a way hunt places normally off limits, but Im not sure if I want to pay big bucks to be part of an organized hunt.

Congrats on some great digs bud! The pewter heart looks like a martingale -- any sign of hooks or some type of fasteners? Possibly colonial find?

Wow some great finds , man imagine how you would have done if you were digging the whole time. Some very nice finds the heart shaped object is a very nice piece. Sometimes they will have letters or even like a mason symbol of some kind. For sure research that item because I am certain it is an item you don't come by often. Congrats on some great saves. Thanks for sharing buddy.
