About Us

My name is Jerry Simmons and I grew up in Virginia and live in the area of Cold Harbor, Virginia. My relic hunting experience started in 1968 when my dad began metal detecting for civil war relics and soon after I became his designated relic digger at the age of 8. Everyone in my family from uncles, brothers to cousins picked up the hobby and it continues to this day. We live for the hunt! It grew into a passion for civil war history and respect for the men and women who gave all for their beliefs.

Here at Cold Harbor Metal Detectors and Civil War Shop, I strive to give you the best service and years of experience to make your metal detecting experience successful. Visit us at
