I think this goal should be Search for Treasure, because most of the fun is the search itself. 2 years ago

I had one of our finds cut in to a round emerald. I had it set in my mother in laws old 14 kt ring that she gave me years ago. AND IT IS STUNNING! Who has treasure! I do, I DO! 3 years ago
My dad is always looking to find hidden treasure, I would like to go on an adventure with him and find treasure. 3 years ago
We went to a mining operation in NC and we found genuine emeralds and rubies! We had one emerald cut into a 1.2 carat round stone! It is beautiful! Real treasure! What fun this was. As I was screening for gems I caught a baby fish in my screen! 3 years ago

Treasure, for me, would not be the money but a rare find. You find some important piece of history like Queen Anne’s Revenge, or Jamestown graves, or hidden pasage in the Sphinx, or some other thing previously unknown to the rest of the world. That would be a great treasure. You prove Jesus did/didn’t resurrect, how cool would that be. 5 years ago
I have a pretty hectic schedule at work and sometimes it can get to me. Lately we have been very short staffed and I’ve to do all my own work plus additional sorting and shelving, which is not hard, but terribly time-consuming and often tiring. Anyway, while fairly irritated with this situtation yesterday and shelving non-fiction (which involves fixing books on the shelf as I go), I heard a boy of six that I helped a few minutes find a book about space run to his mother and exclaim, “Look at this!!! The lady gave me an AWESOME book. Oh My God, can you see how awesome it is. It is total AWESOME!!!”
Working with kids is a real treasure. Although trying at times. Their laughter or enthusiasm for small things always make my day much brighter. I am very happy with my decision every day to go into children’s work. 5 years ago
We went on a ghost tour last night and one story was recounted at the gate of a Unitarian Church graveyard in Charleston. When were back downtown today for lunch, I mentioned that I wanted to return but couldn’t remember where it was located. I had actually gone in it 17 years ago and was enthralled then. Anyhow, we stumbled on it today…the back entrance being a little nondescript gate on King Street directly across the street from the South Carolina Library Society Building. Anyhow this place is fabulous!!! Overgrown and awesome. Life affirming in death. The weather was so perfect to boot. There are many wonderfully old graveyards in Charleston that I have visited numerous times over the years. But I so happy to find this one again and to have rediscovered it with two of my closests friends. Definite treasure was found today. 5 years ago
Well, it’s new to me anyway. I got a 2006 Scion XA and I adore it! It looks like a shiny giant baby tennis shoe. My old car was a 2000 Toyota Echo and I loved it dearly but had put almost 170,000 miles on it. I was only going to get $1000 for my trade-in. Anyway, the guy who sold me my car bought mine for his younger sister for the same amount as the trade in (measly $1000). He delivered the car to her Sunday and she LOVES it. So I am so glad my old baby is not going to be scrapped for parts but instead appreciated by a nineteen-year-old, art student. That makes me feel great about the whole transaction! 5 years ago
I’m starting to research/price metal detectors. I already own a 1980s White’s Electronics detector, which was great as a kid. I want something with more range and power. I also need something that goes underwater. Yeah, I’m thinking coins and jewelry.
I’ll research through the Winter and purchase in Spring. 5 years ago

Just a quick hit on an easy way to find treasure. As a kid I used to “pop” the seats out of abandoned cars and look for lost pocket change underneath. It sounds kind of crazy, but I found a lot of coins.
If memory serves (and it does because I saved all my finds) my best finds were a half dollar, a silver dime, and several wheat-back pennies. Toys and some costume jewelry were also frequent finds.
Over the course of a year I found three Luke Skywalker X-Wing pilot action figures. It was cool finding Star Wars toys, but getting the same one over and over seemed a bit odd.
When “seat popping,” station wagons are fertile hunting grounds. I’m not talking the new try-to-be-hip models, but those nasty old school faux wood paneled babies. Those bad boys just yell, “Hey, we have a lot of kids and are too damned poor to even try to look cool.”
One fudge-shit brown wood-grained baby, which was locked and took a B.B. rifle to the rear passenger window to get in, gave up several King Kong and Happy Days trading cards. She also yielded lots of pennies and one of the aforementioned Luke Skywalker figures.
Kids actually running around unsupervised with guns. Things have certainly changed since then. 5 years ago
I have an early 1980s Whites Electronics metal detector, which served me well as a kid. I never found a lot of coins or other treasure, but did discover some cool things (old metal squirt gun, straight-edged razor, 1941 Utah license plate, bullets, and lots of nails). Most of all, I had a blast.
I really want to get back into treasure hunting. It doesn’t take much, depending on what you are looking for. I plan to search old buildings, mines, and ghost towns. I also plan to search some beaches.

I think of it as anything which could change your life for the better.So it could be riches or a person or an epiphany of some sort. But right now I’m all out of epiphanies.:)) 6 years ago

Finding it is even better. Digging up treasure is a lot of work… but what better feeling is there than when you find it.
