Hello fellow detectors, I'm new to this group. I live in Rehoboth
Beach, Delaware and try to get on the surf at least 3-4 times a week.
I have had little luck this summer finding anything but clad coins. I
have found numerous pieces of broken metal that looks like brass but
I'm not to sure of what it is ????? There are many many 18th & 19th
century ship wrecks just off the coast and I am afraid to discard the
pieces since they maybe from an old ship that went down. I will try
going to the local shipwreck museum and see if they can help me
figure out what they are. I found them just after the last 2
hurricanes went up north out at sea but brought very rough surf to
the area. I will post pictures of the items soon and maybe someone
with this club can help me figure out what they may be.
Once again, I want to say hello to you all...
