I've posted on here a few times, but I was just wondering who's local to the area. Good way to know about the soils and such as well as what I might expect to find? I did find this the other day. Was so dirty I couldn't tell what it was and was pretty interested to know. When I cleaned it up a bit I just about busted out laughing.

Ya know, I do believe archie's 5000 yrs. from now will still be digging up Chucky Cheese tokens. I have found several up here, and we don't even have one close.
 
Sorry whats an Archie ? I do remember the fictional animated rock band. Ahh archeologist ! Just call me Indiana.
 
Chuck E Cheese was/is a cheapo game/pizza place to have kids events, used to take the teams there. Tokens were dispensed from the the machines for "prizes". Their pizza was basically cheese on cardboard! But they sell beer.

I’m from Newton. Welcome and I’ll let you in on a secret. Metro west is completely hunted out … actually maybe double hunted out 🙄 so don’t bother 😏 I try to do farms and fields and old houses. What are you looking to hunt?
 
Hey VMC I like historic stuff and coins mostly. I try and leave any area I'm in just like I left it, not because someone else wants it that way, its because I want it that way.
Funny archies don't like us, because although we may not be as careful as them not disturbing sites, we do bring things to light that may never be seen at all.
I'm a big Indiana Jones fan, so If that tells you anything, I'm pretty enthusiastic about finding buried stuff.
Farms and old houses are probably the best sources, so I'm sure you find all sorts of things. Would really like to find an Indian Head cent, but I did find a 1911 penny a few weeks ago. It almost blew my ears off it was so loud,and I wasn't even wearing headphones .
 
Middlesex county here but I work in Essex County, I do a fair amount of my hunting in the Salem/ Peabody area.
I can’t be relied on to hunt every week but I’d be up for an occasional park hunt sometime.

When I got my first detector I said to the guy at Whites I want to find an Indian head penny in the ground. He laughed and said you will find plenty. When I found the first one I was so excited, fortunately it was in great shape. Right now those and Mercury dimes are my favorites to find. Of course any old coins get me going.
Oh, and you seem nice so I'll be honest with you ... Metro West is not completely hunted out ... almost maybe :shifty:
I have a nice story about Indiana jones. My middle son loved him. It's long so maybe in the future I'll write about it.
 
I'll look forward to that story. I didn't think you could even metal detect Salem. Must be lots of places, especially since I grew up right across the bridge. Oh yea and the best popcorn over in Salem as well, along with Chicken Chop Suey sandwiches !
