Hey guys, 
I was watching deepdiggerdan on YouTube and he mentioned this site so I thought I may give it a go. I've been looking for bottles and detecting since I was 7. As a teen now I spend much more time outside digging for treasure. I mainly collect bottles local to my area or any other bottle if its significant, telegraph insulators both threaded and threadless and coins. I also keep all the cool little things I find while I'm out digging. Living in Ontario, Canada there isn't too many historical places to dig but that dosnt stop me from getting out there and seeing what I find because you just never know. The metal detector i use is a Fisher 1212X that i picked up at a yard sale for 70$. I am hoping to upgrade this summer if i have the cash. Anyways I'm looking forward to being a member of this forum and hope to have some good interactions with other members. Cheers and happy digging!

Welcome!  Go Leafs!  Or is it the Senators?  One of my best friends is from Haileybury. You have found a great site.  Everyone on here is amazing and they have vast knowledge of just about every type of detecting.  

P.S.
Joe likes to say 'loonies' because he is a looney.

Thank you everyone for the welcome! To answer your question Joe my oldest dug bottle is a free blown with a nice sloppy pontil that I think dates to 1860 maybe? (I'll attach a pic) I've dug shards of older bottles mostly wines though and none complete. I think I'll give that contest a go to, I've dug a lot of horse shoes lol.
