minelab best metal detector finds gold pay for trip.jpg

But what you can’t put a price on was the fun we had finding those elusive little nugglets out in the warm sun of the Corner Country. Nor can you put a price on the incredible scenery that can be found all around Tibooburra.
Some of our favourite scenery can be seen while driving the back track off the Cameron’s Corner Road to Nuggety Gully through to Tunnel Hill, it is a photographers dream. Our three weeks in the Corner Country was extremely enjoyable and thanks to the SDC2300 we found enough gold to pay for our trip, what more could we ask for?

minelab best metal detector finds coin.jpg

My second year with my 705 has been incredible. I have been lucky enough to have found several coins that I thought I never would. An 1866 two cent piece, a civil war store card and most recently my first silver dollar a 1901 Morgan. I have been hunting old house sights that are littered with trash and the 705s ability to separate has been the key to success.

minelab best metal detector finds ring in norway gold hand.jpg

It was early September and we were planning a whole day of detecting for our members of the club, the site we acquired permissions to detect on where over 250 acres and had quite a lot of history too it.

One of them is the legend of Haakon Jarl beeing beheaded by his own slave in the year 995, upon delivering Haakon Jarls head to the new king Olav Tryggvason the slave got his own head cut off as well for his betrayal against his former king.

It is olav Tryggvason and the slaves cut off head you can see on the city statue in Trondheim today. A central piece of our city's history.

We had hopes of finding something that could be linked too this legend on the site and we set off 22 men strong onto the fields. The hours went on without many good find leaving the soil, a few silver coins here and there dating about 200 years back but nothing sensational.

1909 You're So Fine

1909 You’re So Fine

Hi, my name is Will, I live in northwest Iowa.  I’ve been hunting for about four years now and I have found some really cool things.  Nothing can compare to what I found on October 4, 2014, at least not yet.  I’m only about to get out to metal detect for a few hours a week.  Not as much as I’d like to though.  But when you have a wife and four kids at home that’s where most of your time is spent.  Here within the last 3 weeks I haven’t had much time to get out and dig.  If I did I wasn’t having much luck, that’s metal detecting for you, it has its ups and downs.  I’m sure all you fellow hunters out there can agree with that.

The Beach is Still Hot

minelab best metal detector finds al.jpg

I started Metal Detecting in 1979. I used to mainly Detect inland. But found out the Atlantic Coast Beaches can produce Great Finds and easy target retrieval. I like to Metal Detect after North Eastern Storms and Hurricane's, I am presently watching Hurricane Gonzalo, Oct 2014 on NOAA. I live about 4 1/2 hour drive from the East Coast. I mainly search from the North Carolina Outer Banks to Florida. It took me over 30 years to Find my Current Beach Hot Spot. I usually have to detect this area 12-13 hour straight because of the tides and sometimes have to wear a Life jacket because of the currents. The enclosed pictures are what I Find in (1 ) Day . The Rare South Carolina Militia Plate was Detected recently along with the Coins from the 1700-1800 and the Flat Buttons. The 1st time I located this spot I could see Coin and Buttons from the 1800's just lying on the Beach, I detected for over 20 hours in 2 Days. I use a Minelab Excalibur with an 8 inch coil. The day before I found this site I ordered a Minelab E-Trac. What was I thinking. -goldnugget

minelab best metal detector finds treasure clip.jpg

Hi, about a month or so ago, I submitted a story about finding an early gold cuff link (click to read) at an old church site1850's. Yesterday I was working the gold fields around Blackwood and decided I had had enough and was heading home, driving down the road, I passed the old church and decided I'd get out and have a bit of a swing for a while, I picked up a 1942 penny and a 1853 three pence, I was now happy and headed towards my car when I got a nice strong signal, 3" down and out popped the matching cuff link to the one I found a while ago.

Six of us from our club decided to go over to England to detect fields for a week near Colchester and on the 5th day of detecting at around a foot down I found a Bronze Age (c.1500-1400BC) cast copper alloy primary shield pattern palstave, dating to the Acton Park Phase.

minelab best metal detector finds coin and ring.jpg

First hits were a couple of the beautiful Henry VI groats, then i got a different kind of tone, we shared the digging as by now we were going down a good two inches deeper than the standard coil had and found another stunning groat, before we filled in the hole I stuck in my propoint and there was something else there! pushing in my finger I flicked out a shining gold ring - intricately decorated and set with a polished deep blue stone it took my breath away and even seeing pictures of it now still gives me the goosebumps!
