A little about Treasure Quest...
My name is Gregory Bittinger and I'm the founder of Treasure Quest, thanks for visiting!
Living in historic south west Pennsylvania I've always had a love for its history. I purchased my first metal detector (a used coin master) 27 years ago when I was 14 years of age and after finding my first quarter I was hooked! I loved nothing better than digging coins and bottles.
My oldest find took place about five years ago, I located an old stone foundation near a creek at the edge of my property and there found a 1772 half cent Hibernia minted in Ireland. I use a Whites Spectrum XLT and it treats me well, I especially like the built in back light for night hunting.
I founded this site in November 2002. Our goal is to help others in this great hobby of Metal Detecting / Treasure Hunting. We aim to provide you with good solid information, from picking the right detector to proper digging techniques and also a place for you to meet, chat and trade with other enthusiasts.
In the future we are planning to have a Treasure Hunt get-together, this will take some planning and we would need some help from anyone interested in meeting up. Stay tuned for more information.
I personally want to thank all of you for helping to make Treasure Quest the #1 Treasure Hunting web site!
