How was it lost / just set down and forgot or fell off something and may be partially covered with soil & residue ? How big of an area are we talking about ?
No good answer and depending on the area, if you think it will be readily visible get some family and friends and get a few feet apart and walk area. Quite a few people could cover a lot of ground. Could add some fun as the finder wins a prize of some sort.
Had a small drilling hammer that was left laying on a plow in about 1980 it fell off and got turned under. Knew approximately the area where it was lost. Kept track of whether it should be up or down by subsequent plowings but figured it was lost forever.
19 years later it turned up in a flexible tine harrow in an adjoining field 800' to the south of where it was lost. Wooden handle was still in place although a little worse for the wear.
