Do You Ever Smell Your Finds?

Ok, I'm already certified nuts, so, a little more won't hurt Tongue 

Holding something 80, 90, 100+ years old is quite amazing when one thinks about it. Who dropped it? What did it represent to the person? What were they doing when they lost it? And on, and on, and on. But...

I have this habit of actually smelling my finds from time to time; coins, jewelry, etc. Now, don't start getting any perverse thoughts running through your mind, lol. Basically, by taking a quick whiff of these items, I'm always curious to see if I can get any residual traces of the person that dropped it. The majority of the time...nothing, however, every so often, I can swear I smell a perfume/cologne, etc.

Anyone ever smell their finds? Be honest. Come on, it can't just be me?!

No arguing on the "nuts" part, Will Tongue Baby, I'm as hard core of a junkie as you'll ever meet...detecting junkie that is. I actually left (as in quit) a job making six figures before, cause it was cutting into my detecting time. 110% true. In hindsight, the dumbest move I EVER made, but, damn was it fun! I live, breath, eat & sleep detecting. Is it any wonder I smell my finds, then?! Drunk

ROTFLMAO! Ron, that's the best Happy Happy Happy

For the record, I'm not talking about taking all of my finds out of their cubby holes and spending hours smelling each individual piece...although that would be classic! Nothing like that. Rather, what I'm speaking of is, let's say I'm holding a large cent for example, I'll take a whiff of the coin in an attempt to 'smell the history' of the item. To see if I can pick up on any traces of a scent. It's quite interesting. I've done this on numerous occasions. Come on, I can't be the only one?! 

P.S. - Ron, I'm hoping that's not your pet squirrel.
