Stuart Auerbach (1932 - 2017)

Stuart Auerbach (1932 - 2017)

Founder of Kellyco started metal detecting for coins at Iwo Jima during the Korean Conflict

“I can remember when I was nine or 10 years old. I was raised in New York City, and every summer we used to go out to places like Rockaway Beach and Jones Beach. I remember vividly in one of the areas there was a boardwalk. I never paid attention to it until one day I saw a man under the boardwalk with something and I was curious enough to go look and ask, ‘What are you doing, Mister?’ And, he said, ‘I’m sifting for money.’ You know, as a kid when I heard the word “money,” I started asking how you are doing it. He had a box and a sifter and he kept throwing stuff in it and by golly he found some coins and it knocked me for a loop. It intrigued me, and that’s why I read books about treasure and adventure,” said Auerbach. “I think I’m the persona of what the American dream is all about.”

Getting Back To The Buzzard’s Outing Playbook

Getting Back To The Buzzard’s Outing Playbook

Participants get so much more than just gold at events

Yes! You will get gold! All the participants share a split of the gold that is recovered in the outing common operation. Want more? There is usually a little picker or vial with some fines (small pieces of gold) that you walk away with as well. Many participants like to label their vials so they can remember all the fun they had for years to come.
