Default 3 Day Organized hunt

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.

That's still a pretty nice haul. What's the heart shaped item?

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?
