I was detecting with my Minelab E-TRAC in an old house site in a gold mining town , and had on my 8” coil due to the high concentration of trash in the site.
Whilst detecting I got a good signal and dug up a socket piece from a belt buckle. I found it and thought it was a cool buckle and wondered if I could find the other piece to it.
I searched the immediate area thoroughly and found other targets but not the second part to the belt buckle.
Forgetting about the second part of the buckle I continued detecting for about an hour on the opposite side of the site and found the other half!
