The DSMDC is a group of Metal Detecting enthusiasts who meet monthly to share their treasure finds with fellow members and discuss some of their tips and tricks of the trade.
More than 65 treasure hunters attended the first metal detecting challenge March 28 at the Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center in Grasonville. The event, co-sponsored by the Queen Anne's County Department of Tourism and CBEC, drew competitors from six states.
The property was ideal for finding old-time coins, keys, belt buckles, horseshoes, hand-made nails, boat spikes and other items lost by the former residents and guests. Finds included Army coat buttons from World War I, a 1906 V-nickel, drawer pulls and many other household objects. Other items, some of which earned finders a prize, were planted by organizers.
