Can You Really Make Money With a Metal Detector?
A few excerpts from the article …
Civil War buffs can find relics throughout most of the South, ranging from bullets and cannonballs to buttons, buckles and ID tags, the precursor of the GI dog tags still in use by the military today. Although most major battlefields are on protected property, many minor battlefields are not — and there were plenty of places where the 3 million Union and Confederate soldiers camped.
If you’re interested in history, you can find something with a metal detector where people have lived previously. People have been losing things throughout time. “Don’t get discouraged, because there’s still a lot of stuff that’s buried that people haven’t found,” McCullough says. “People have been doing this detecting since the ’60s. They’ve pulled a lot out, but there’s still a lot left.”
