Wow! A couple years ago I grabbed my sons metal detector to take on a camping trip. I thought it would be fun to walk the beach and just do a little sweeping.

I really didn’t know how to use the detector. All the beeping and buttons on the thing was just confusing. It seemed like I was just digging up gum wrappers and bottle tops.

Frustrated I was about to give up and I heard a different tone. I dug a little by hand and found a QUARTER!


YUP! – I FOUND $0.25!


It wasn’t even silver, in fact it was 3 years old. But it felt like money from heaven.
