Metal Detecting with Rob Phillips on Tuesday, April 30th

Metal Detecting with Rob Phillips at Putney Public Library

Tuesday, April 30th at 6:30pm

Rob Phillips, native Vermonter and Putney resident, has been interested in history, archaeology, and paleontology since his childhood but started to get serious about metal detecting in 2014. “It’s the closest we can get to time travel, holding items people lost hundreds or even thousands of years ago”, says Rob. Rob has found many items but some stand of his more stand-out treasures are old Spanish coins, buttons, and cuff links. Two of the most unique items he has found are Revolutionary War (1784) USA buttons and an extremely rare John Adams presidential cuff link, of which there are less than 10 known examples in existence!

Join Rob for a presentation and slide show about some of his notable finds from our area on Tuesday, April 30th at 6:30pm at Putney Public Library.

Putney Public Library is located at 55 Main St. in Putney, VT. This event is free and open to the public.
