My World War Two Relic Collection: Metal Detecting

(Scroll down for the video)

For a lot of folks, they hear the term ‘metal detecting’ and automatically imagine the crazy old guy they saw walking up and down the shoreline on their beach vacation last summer. But when you look at this surprisingly addictive hobby, there’s so much more to it than just looking funny at the beach.

Metal detecting has been around for years, and has rapidly become a very popular hobby. With treasure seekers and history enthusiasts everywhere, the hobby has become a great way to keep fit, make some extra money, meet friends and unearth the history beneath our feet.

Many great finds have been discovered by the public with their metal detectors. .  For example if you watch the video bellow you can see a lot of WWII relics found while metal detecting in the river. You will see 75mm artillery rounds, 37mm projectiles to include canister rounds. Bayonets, mess trays, and many more interesting historical artifacts. All are original and found by metal detecting.
