Default Amanda made us a new "Treasure box"

I thought this was pretty cool. She's into wood burning and stuff and decided to customize one of our smaller finds boxes! I must say, our "Epic finds" box is adding up pretty fast! LOL, Minus one gold ring I sold recently, these are all the silver rings and a couple cooler coins we have found!

Really like the box, looks like a small treasure chest which is fitting
Schools are a great source of coins and jewelry. Good luck and Happy Hunting!

It rang up a super high tone. Like a crystal clear loud quarter. We didn't have the Fisher so we didn't have a number, but the Bonty Hunter is pretty accurate when it comes to rings, coins and can's. I just throw it in tone mode and listen carefully. Certain low tones are easy enough to differentiate as well. Pull tabs sound just a nit different than a nickel, and nickels sound almost like gold rings. The Ike sounded like a big quarter.

That pirate chest is perfect! Hopefully, though, it becomes too small at some point. Love the "scrimshaw" woodburning.

Sweet!
Someday I am guessing that creativity will come in handy for drawing up a treasure map when it comes time to burry that thing somewhere.
