My Time: Finding history at metal detecting challenge

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.
