Best Hunt of my Life!


April 23, 2014 09:00am

This year over Easter Break, my family and I decided to head south and get away from all the winter drama we’ve had here at home. We were just finishing up getting about 10 inches of snow when we left home. It has been a long winter, and I was eager to get my Minelab E-TRAC out and start finding some loot. After about a 10 hour ride in the car, we arrived at our destination.

My first spot it hit was a local park, which yielded some clad and a Wheat Penny. Not quite what I expected so far, but I was happy just being outside and not freezing from wind or snow.

My best finds with my X-TERRA 70


April 22, 2014 09:00am

About 10 years ago, I dedicated myself to this hobby and tried many detectors, but this one here, I believe renders to all the conditions to search for both nuggets, relics and coins. The first coin I found was a copper coin from 1827 and the second coin was a silver Bolivian from 1864, and many more coins without much historical relevance.

My sister gave me permission to hunt her yard here in the Pittsburgh, PA area USA. Her house was built in the 1930s, I think. Found a bunch of clad a few wheat pennies and this 1918 Walking Liberty Half dollar. Terribly worn, but I don't care, it is my first silver half dollar. The second picture is of a Turkish 2 Piastre coin also found in Pennsylvania, found in the yard of my grandparents house. I have no idea how a Turkish coin made its way to PA.

Golden Vespasianus

CTX 3030

April 18, 2014 09:00am

Hello everyone.
I have done a wonderful find with my CTX3030.
I really did not know what came over me. What a rush.
A Gold (aureus) Vespasian 69-79 after CHR.
Before and afterwards lots of silver (denariussen) and bronze Roman coins were found.
I also found a lot of armour and military equipment.
The gold was really great. Fantastic detector. Very deep and clearly different tones.
Greetings from the Netherlands.

The Ode To The Lode

My wife and I have spent many years detecting for gold in the Western Australian goldfields and have many stories to tell of our finds and adventures. But the one question on everyone’s lips is “what is the biggest piece you have found?”

That honour goes to my lovely wife Lesley (I’m still trying to beat her) and the best way to tell this story is through a poem I wrote at the time in 2009.

1966 high school class ring found and returned to owner

A 1966 ring-2.JPG

A few months ago I and a detecting friend were using our E-TRACs at an old school playground about 120 miles from home when I got this interesting and strong signal. The thought came to me, "10,000 pull tabs for each gold ring" and when I got to it, BINGO, this long lost class ring popped out! After nearly three months of research and many contacts, I was finally successful in returning the 1966 class ring to its rightful owner. Priceless!!!

Take a Bite out of Detecting

gold teeth.JPG

Out detecting an old picnic grove from the early 1900 in northern New Jersey when my E-TRAC shows a 12-12. So I dug a plug about 8' down and see a piece of gold foil, after pulling it out of the hole I turned it over and saw the teeth marks. I found someone's gold dental caps. Passed over the hole again and pulled out an old beer bottle cap. Guess he used his teeth to open the beer.

Birmingham Counterfeit Eight Reales

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!
