Birmingham Counterfeit Eight Reales

Explorer SE Pro

April 15, 2014 02:00pm
8 reales.jpg

Not to diminish the significance of the countless 18th century coins and relics I have found with my Explorer SE Pro, but there's one that for me takes the grand prize: a counterfeit 1775 Eight Reales, one of only two known to exist (left). And just a year after having found it, I found a real one (right), just a quarter mile away, bearing the same year!

Brilliant finds

CTX 3030

Hi all at Minelab apologies for lack of communication just a few things had to sort out in my life. Have been out and about with my CTX 3030 and made some really great finds recently. First one was a really highly decorated spur dating to the 15th Century. Then I discovered a Georgian period rubbish midden only very small but it contained an iron buckle and a large kitchen type knife. The final find so far was this little man whom one might say is moderately well-endowed. I think he dates to the late Georgian period and may be some type of crude pendant poking find at King George 111. I've plenty more finds to share too. Thanks for a brilliant product which really has given me the finds from new sites and has truly refreshed sites that I have been searching for over three decades....want finds, build quality and peak performance then Minelab it has to be... Cheers

My lucky forest!

Me and my two buddies had been walking around in 4 hours and just digging crap and some outdated coins… The week before I found an iron cross from WW1 in the same forest, so we were hoping for some nice finds.

Around 10 minutes after the coffee break, I got a huge signal, first I found a huge copper coin with a silver coin attached! I screamed out loud!! I cleaned the coins and was ready to take a picture, but I decided to check the hole one more time and suddenly I had a total of 7 COINS! This was too much for me... I did not detect any more that day :)

Jáchymov - Cradle U.S. dollar

CTX 3030

coins.jpg

I'm trying everything possible, so I wanted to find nuggets. As you walking in Australia or America. But there is a problem - nowhere near us has gold. In our region, however, since the Middle Ages silver was mined. I have read a few clever books and found the nearest possible location. I chose Jáchymov.

In the area are pure crystalline silver and the local silver veins often based directly on the surface and Schottenbergu (now Castle Hill) and Türckenbergu (today around dimensions guards and hats) were reportedly even finding the 'grass' or in the roots of uprooted trees and with a little luck we might be able to kick some nice coin. Maybe rare Jáchymov thaler.

In the footsteps of the "34"...

WW2 ring.JPG

During the campaign of Italy in the summer of 1944, the Allied troops fought fiercely to conquer every foot of ground troops to Nazi-fascist, determined to slow their advance as possible in anticipation of the completion of the second true line of defence (the Gothic Line) after having sold at a high price that the line Gustav hinged on the famous Abbey of Montecassino.

The fights here in Tuscany have however been violent and witness the left indelible traces in both small towns and in the countryside or in the hills...

Transportation history Restored

E-TRAC

steam boat tag.JPG

As I move towards my third year of E-TRAC owner ship, it continues to amaze me what it recovers in worked out areas.

Recently I have been hunting a vacant lot that use to house a railroad yard that connected to the harbor steam ships back in the 1800's. The trains would go right out on the water on bridges and stop and meet the steam boats.

Both freight and passengers were on the trains and boats. Each would be transferred to the boat or train depending on if they were coming or going. When the passengers handed over or picked up their luggage, steamer trunks etc., like today, they had tags on them so you could recover the correct pieces. However, unlike paper ones used today, they used brass tags attached with leather.

x-terra finds Silver Medieval Ring 1300-1500.JPG

My local metal detecting club has a highly organised committee who arranges metal detecting rallies for large groups at numerous historical sites. It was with great excitement that I set off for the latest rally on 170 plus acres of undetected farmland with history abound.

The site had a Bronze barrow close by, a moated Medieval site dating back to the 13th Century, English Civil War links, 2 17th/18th Century mills, and was not far from a historical Roman town.

180 detectorists met at the farm site and set off detecting, with 2 Find Liasion Officers waiting to record any great finds made.
