Metal detector to borrow or buy

On my next visit to our “bush quarter” at Shell Lake, I plan to look for the legal property corner markers. I believe that when the land was surveyed, many decades ago, the surveyors would have marked the property corners using metal stakes. However I understand that many homesteaders found practical uses for the iron, so they may be long gone.

Even if the markers are still in place today, I don’t know if they would be at ground level, driven below ground level, or extend above the ground. Assuming that the corner posts are still in place, a metal detector would come in handy. If someone in the P.A. area has one of those gizmos cluttering his/her basement or garage, and would be willing to loan it out or sell it at a reasonable price (i.e. cheap), please fire me a note.
