ECRDA at the Dumont Library

The ECRDA made a multimedia presentation on metal detecting at the Dumont (NJ) Public Library. Joe Jorgensen, Pete Schichtel, and Paul Havemann brought a variety of recovered artifacts including coins, tokens, Colonial belt/shoe buckles, Native American artifacts, and more. Included was a variety of bottles and other relics recovered from the Mandeville Inn midden dig conducted in 2021.

Our goals in doing such presentations are twofold: To educate the public about our hobby, and to encourage others to try it for themselves. If your library, civic group, or school class would be interested in scheduling such an event, please email us at
