How to Find Buried Treasures
The definition of Beach combing is: hunting for lost coins or jewelry on a beach. Learning how to find Buried Treasures, can be as simple or as complicated as one wishes to make it. Using a Metal Detector increases your chances in finding Precious Metals. Many dedicated beach hunters also familiarize themselves with tide movements and beach erosion.
My neighbor has a Metal Detector that he lets me use once in awhile. I have so much fun exploring different areas on the beach, where people were using there Umbrellas, Cabanas and Beach Chairs. Its amazing how much Treasure I find that has been left behind by people, that has been buried under the sand. I find coins, jewelry, toys, watches, sunglasses and one time I even found a class ring with a ruby in it. The school name was engraved around the Ruby and the name of the student was engraved inside. I called the school and told them that I found the ring at the Beach. I left my phone number, so they could call the students Mother. She called me and gave me there address so I could mail them the ring. It was such a good feeling to be able to return the ring, that had a special meaning to them.
You can find your own Buried Treasures with a Metal Detector, that I recommend from Amazon. Click on the picture below and it will take you to the Metal Detector, or you can browse thru the many other various Metal Detectors that Amazon has.
What to do after you find your Treasures
After you find your Buried Treasures, you will want to do a test on the items. You will need a Testing Stone for a Acid-Scratch Test on Gold, Silver & Platinum. I recommend the Pro Deluxe Testing Stone for only $9.00 at Amazon. Click on the Image below to order this, or browse thru the various other Testers.
Metal detecting clubs across the United States, United Kingdom and Canada exist for hobbyists to learn from others, show off finds from their hunts and to learn more about the hobby.
Many beachcombers follow the “drift lines” or “tide lines” on the beach and are interested in the (mostly natural) objects that the sea casts up. For these people, “beachcoming” is the recreational activity of looking for and finding various curiosities that have washed in with the tide. Such as seashells of every kind, fossils, sea beans (drift seeds), sea glass (beach glass) and driftwood. As long as the items are either decorative or useful in some way to create various arts and craft projects. Emmerse yourself in the beachcombing experience; the wind in your face, the smell of salt spray, the roar of the ocean; it’s an assault on the senses, the perfect tonic – and this book is your essential guide on how to find Buried Treasures.
