Springfield and the surrounding areas, I'm not restricted to any particular area - I'd likely accept requests from anywhere in northern or central VA outside this area call to discuss my gas fees.

Only land searches at this time...Yards, parks, beach but not water...
- Cost For My Service
I work on a Reward Basis… That means you pay me what it's worth to you and what you can afford, for me to come out and find your lost item. There will be a call out fee of $25.00 to cover my gas expenses if the item isn't found.
- Doug Stickley's Bio
I'm 60 years old, and semi-retired, after 24 years in the Army and a shorter career as a defense contractor. I spent many years stationed in Germany, which is where I really got involved in detecting, starting about 30 years ago. As I'll probably go back to work full- or part-time, this will be a 'part-time' hobby for me. My best finds to date include a lost US high school ring, returned by me to its owner after about 50 years in the ground in Germany; a 300-year old metal sealing wax stamp, donated by me to a museum in Heidelberg, Germany; and various items, including an old pocket watch and a pair of brass knuckles, found on the site of a small battlefield in Germany (at which my uncle, an 18 year old US Army infantryman, went listed as 'Missing in Action' in 1945). I find metal detecting both relaxing and challenging. I've owned several detectors over the years, and currently use a Garrett.
