During one of the latest releases, made on a beach and a few meters from the shore with my CTX after recovering several recent coins (2Euro, 1 euro, 50 cents, 20cent..ecc ...) and some more coins old (old 200 lire ..) also found a considerable depth in the sand .... I came across in a very strong signal ..... digging with the shovel and drilled once ..è appeared this beautiful ring from man gold 750 (18K and weighing well 21.3gr ..) pictured with a griffin .. (mythological and heraldic animal with the body consists of a head and wings of an eagle, body and tail of a lion and the ears of a horse....

A Civil War Soldiers 1858 U.S. Seated Half Dollar

CTX 3030

September 04, 2015 08:00am
seated half.jpg

Here in SW Missouri we have a colorful Civil War history. It is that history that I am interested in finding. My ancestors were on both sides of the argument, and that actually was what got me into searching for Civil War Relics. I have used many detectors over the years but the CTX is finding more for me, especially coins and buttons on edge. I have dug a lot of US Half Dollars but never a Seated Half Dollar. You have to tip your cap to Minelab, the CTX is in a class of its own!

Over 500 missed coins.

CTX 3030

August 29, 2015 08:00am

Since I bought my CTX3030 2 years ago I have found well over 500 pre-decimal British and Aussie coins at some of the most hunted to death ghost towns in FNQ, Australia. All missed by hundreds of other metal detecting enthusiasts.

Finding a soviet badge while water detecting in Norway

CTX 3030

August 27, 2015 09:00am

Out on metal detecting adventures with my CTX 3030, and this time i found something really strange! A soviet badge...on the beach in Norway!?
Who brings a soviet badge to the beach?
This is probably sold as surplus after the soviet fell, and brought to the beach by someone that bought it as a souvenir, but I still think it's an interesting find!

This badge is from the cold war era, and was given out to soldiers that served well in the army during the 1970-80's.

Yet another hammered with the CTX3030 at a Northern Relic Hunters dig

CTX 3030

August 25, 2015 08:00am

I went out on Sunday 23rd of August on a northern relic hunters dig.

I had only been detecting 20 minutes and I managed to pull out this lovely King Charles Shilling.

It's my first hammered shilling so I was over the moon.
This brings my hammered coin count to four and a quarter this year with the CTX.
I only manage to get out once a month so I am over the moon with the CTX over the 11 months I have owned it.

Thanks minelab!

An unexpected Seated Dime

CTX 3030

August 24, 2015 10:00am

After submersing the Seated Dime into the puddle of water, I began dabbing gently at the little bit of dirt stuck to the dime, slowly washing it away with every dab, the date was revealed. 1854 with Arrows. My second seated coin ever, and it's a very fine 1854. After seeing that I was done detecting for the day, I ran home to give the dime a quick shot of electrolysis, and took many pictures to post on social media to show my friends. A great day for my Ctx, and me!

Unearthing American History

CTX 3030

August 24, 2015 08:00am

While detecting along an old abandoned dirt road, deep in the Forrest of western Pennsylvania, I Found this beautiful Liberty Capped Bust Half Dime! Score! I honestly had no idea what it even was. lol. Finally decided to kick back and have a seat in the dirt, and then, right by my feet on the surface of a lightly ploughed field there was my an Arrowhead! Just sitting there! That's two first for me today!
Minelab, thank you for making the best Metal Detecting Technology in the world!

Silver Spoon


August 23, 2015 09:00am

Another steady 40. That's a quarter. I knew it wasn't silver. I knew it had to be another sandwiched Washington. I dug my plug to get it. When I flipped my plug, I turned on my pinpointer and jabbed it into the plug. I checked the hole. Nothing. I checked my pinpointer against my shovel and it was indeed working. I jammed it back in the hole. I heard a beep. This was definitely a deep quarter down there. I dug the hole deeper. I tried the pinpointer again and I was right on it. With my gloves on, I wiped away some dirt and I saw a perfectly round piece of shiny metal. I got excited and continued to scrape away until I reached my finger under and pried it up. Is this just another spoon? I wiped it clean and instantly saw the word "sterling". Finally! Upon investigation, I found it was made by J E Caldwell and had the initials EKM on it as well as a date inscribed reading "April 1907". I couldn't be happier.
