I have not found one of the BB with any stamps in it, yet.  A good thing I guess.....
My recent story regarding BB:
I received a new coil for one of my detectors last week. Thought it would be a good idea to test it out in the back yard. Yes this area has been used as a test pan now for some time. I though the area was clear of all junk and BB. I placed down a few test targets to see how well the new coil would go. I kept getting a strange tone near my 0.5g nugget, I moved the test piece and the noise was still there. My curiosity got the better of me, so off to the shed to collect a shovel. I removed the plug and to my surprise a 1c coin, around 15 inches down. As I always do, I removed the coin and checked the hole. The tone remained. To cut a long story short. There were a total of 4 coins (3 x 1c & 1 x 2c) 15-18 inches down. I don't know how they got there, must have been when the house was built.
I guess you want to know what coil I was using Whites 14” GMT Super-Pulse 350.
What can I say? BB are not always bad to find especially when you find them where other coils have ventured.

I reckon if you set out detecting just strictly looking for b.b signals you would have some amazing finds!
