Fellow relic hunter and detectorist, Beau Ouimette, made quite the find this past summer. You've got to watch this to believe it.
By the way, I have laid tentative plans to do a joint article/interview about metal detecting with a professional historian for one of the national relic hunting publications. The actual interview with a legendary relic hunter and collector will take place some time in November or December. The piece will likely be published some time next spring. I'll discuss this more once the piece is completed and has been officially accepted for publication. It should be a fascinating article.
