Kansas Metal Detectorist Finds Rare 1950's Indianapolis Motor Speedway Pit Pass
Jerry E. from Topeka, KS recently shared a metal detecting find. He found this badge while metal detecting a military base he has access to.
Here is a little history on the badge (from the indymotorspeedway.com website):

admission into the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the
month of May, except race day. Perhaps more importantly,
it also allows them daily access to the garage area where

FAQ: Are All of The Good Metal Detecting Spots Hunted Out?
One of the most common questions I get from people who just started or are just now getting into metal detecting is, “Is there anywhere good left to hunt?”
The answer is YES!
There are metallic traces of man scattered all across the globe. Historically trash service was not a common thing…trash cans either for that matter. And the term “green planet” when referring to environmental protection is something developed within the last half century. Before those important developments, man was not so responsible when it came to discarding refuse. Although sad, even to this day, it is not uncommon to find “dumps” along dusty roadsides in rural America. Just about any farm that has been around for any length of time has a dump pile nestled within a culvert out of public view. This being said, the number of buried targets in the world are literally unimaginable.
