Lost keys

So lately I've not been up to going to my usual spot or detecting much at all for that matter..but a couple nights I got out for like 30 minutes in my back yard.

I came across a pair of keys, no idea where from or what for. I showed my mom and stepfather to see if they knew and my step fathers eyes lit up. He got pretty excited but also upset in a way. So he started telling me a story of how his mother lost her keys in the mid 80s. He said she swore up and down someone stole them. Sadly she passed away a year after loosing them. They've been in the ground about 2-3 inches deep for about 30 years. I left them on the table for him and the next day they were on the key rack. Assuming he put them there. The keys are to a 1984 Plymouth Sundance.

I also found a older hose nozzle a couple dollars in clad. Oldest being a 67 dime damn near 8 inches down.

Zach. One of the oddities about finding stuff is the history to it. I'm pretty sure it brought back some memories for your step dad. And for you it brought a perspective. It is always a thought, full of wonder, why someone lost something and we get to find it. I often ask myself why I in particular found this thing and my human nature tries to give some perspective related to my life or someone else's past. I don't know why, but sometimes I see a resemblance.

Other than that, it's a great inner family historical find. I'd often thought about going up to the old neighborhood and house I grew up in and asking permission to hunt. I very often wonder what I would find. You don't have to wonder though. You're there. Give it everything you got! Let the people you know explain it to you.

That's the amazing thing about this hobby, you just never know what you're going to find Yes Pretty cool that they were lost by your step-dad's mom 30 years ago. I'd clean them up, and give them to him, as they'd be a nice keepsake for him.

Nice catch, Zach Happy

That is a great story and I know you are happy that your step dad told you a family story concerning those keys. This hobby has so many rewards and most folks don't talk about them.

Thanks for sharing and espically at this time of the year I really enjoyed it
