Metal Detector Hunter - My Story

Years ago early 70's I was in a barber shop waiting to get a hair cut and they had some treasure magazines on the table. As I was looking Through the pages it showed all these guys with their metal detectors showing off all the gold bullion, coins, and other artifacts they had found. Well that's all it took I was hooked. After my hair cut I ran over to the local book store and bought every magazine on treasure hunting and metal detectors I could find.
After I got home I read front to back all the magazines twice. My wife came over to see what I was doing, she gave me one of those looks and walked away, what does she know. OK Now what type of metal detector to buy? As I look through these metal detecting magazines there was allot to choose from. So many different styles of metal detectors, some cheap some go take out a second mortgage.
After reading the instructions and setting up my metal detector with the one knob it had I was ready to find some treasure. We lived in a fairly older home so I thought there might be some good stuff buried in the lawn. After about four hours of swinging this thing and hearing every type of beep imaginable I though my house was build on a landfill. My metal detector finds included cans, nails, aluminum foil, and rusted out iron. How could this be not one red cent.
Now my neighbor see's me and comes over to see what I was doing since my yard looks like it had been bombed with all the holes in it. I show him my metal detector (which he didn't even know they existed) and asks what I was doing. I explain the best I could about metal detecting and he seemed impressed. So he reads the instructions and off we go For another hour. Same results, junk. OK fine I show my neighbor the magazines I had bought and takes them home. Look at my poor yard, clean up all my metal detector findings go in and have a beer and try to figure out what went wrong.
