Ben Gentry's Bio

As a day job i have worked for 14 years as a home health care Physical therapist but when the work days done and time permits I like saving history and finding “treasure” with my detector.

I’m fairly new to detecting but absolutely love it. Ive been doing this for just over a year now. My passion for metal detecting started from talking with a wonderful man in the Pelham NC area who knew my Grandmother very well. He had been detecting for 40 plus years and had some great stories and treasures that sparked my interest. I’ve always had an interest in history which I likely got from my grandpa who was a local history teacher in my hometown. I love the idea of saving history and reuniting people with their lost and cherished possessions. I’ve been lucky and blessed enough the find several pre civil war relics and some old coins. My best find is an 1847 Large Cent!!!! I know my machine very well and will do anything I can to assist you in finding what you may have thought was lost forever.
