Fred Stedtler's Bio

I am married,age 63 years of age.Ihave been self employed for 26 years and still work,but consider myself semi-retired.

I have been metal detecting for 3 years and enjoy finding lost items and generally finding items of historic age.

If you have lost an item,I will use all my skills in a sincere,thorough attempt to recover the item.

I have 2 very good detectors, 1 detector is good for up to 10 feet of water immersion,so I can perform shallow water recoveries. If you need help,please contact me .

I look forward to finding what you thought was lost forever.
