I never thought I'd get into detecting but the price ($80!) just seemed right for me to start a whole new hobby that also may incorporate militaria! I was amazed at how it could discriminate between quarters, nickels, dimes and silver so easily! I have a couple more months left on the base I'm currently stationed at which dates back to ww2! In fact, parts of the hangar I'm working in which does date to ww2, was converted into office spaces. I believe i also saw old, demolished concrete gun enplacements that could be my first spot to check. Hopefully I can find some era stuff.
