Hanging shelves hit metal

Hi, back on the projects again. I am hanging some shelves in my sunroom. It is an addition to the original house with a lot of windows. The wall I'm hanging them on has wood paneling. Behind it should be the exterior of the original house. The master bedroom is behind that.

I hit metal about a foot from the wall close to the end of the house.

I wouldn't think there would be electrical, plumbing, or HVAC on the corner of the house.

What are the suggestions for hanging that end of the shelves?

Thanks for reading.

Metal plates usually protect something behind them... so you would be wise to either relocate your fasteners or investigate further by removing paneling and drywall. Without knowing anything about the shelves you are hanging it's hard to say more than that.

Thanks for the reply. It's just some shiplap, with small anchors. I'll be putting shot glasses on them. Here are some pictures to clarify.

Forgot to mention I'm on the coast if that makes a difference.
