Tom Rockwell

Tom works at Project Place and lives at the YMCA on Huntington Ave. Tom spends a lot of his free time searching for lost "treasures" in the city. He uses a metal detector, but mostly he scans the ground for things that people drop and lose or sometimes fall out of rings and earrings. He said he probably has the largest collection of diamonds in Boston, and one of these days he is going to have them appraised.

we also have treasures searchers here, they are on the beach in winter with their detectors.

Could someone actually make a living doing this?
