minelab detector finds gold coin.jpg

Well what can i say this is my 3rd success story but my first with the E-TRAC I’ve found silver in the past and my next goal was to find gold and I’m glad to say I’ve finally done it after only using the E-TRAC for one harvest, i was happily minding my own business detecting on a field getting the usual bits and bobs like led and of course the buttons when i got a totally different signal i dug it up and when it came out the ground about 8" down i couldn’t believe my eyes GOLD i thought but it didn’t look real or like any gold I’ve seen before but now i realise why as it is 2,000 years old, it is of south ferriby type and if from 1bc and is a full gold stater.

holy grail of mercs

minelab detector finds coin 1916.jpg

I knew the day was going to be good. A few minutes later a 12-44 at 5 inches. I figured on another rosie but out popped a mercury dime. I could see the 1916 on the front and a mint mark on the back but couldn't make it out. I've dug 2 1916 and 3 1916s this year so I wasn't to hopeful. I took the dime to the truck washed it and lo and behold there was the D. After 20 years of detecting I finally filled the last hole in the mercury collection. The hunt ended right there for the day. I can't be more pleased with the CTX 3030.

Coin machine

minelab detector finds button.jpg

I had my MINELAB X-TERRA 505 in a few months. This detector is wonderful on coins, and exceeds all expectations I had for it.

It has found some pretty amazing coins that is both rare and special.
What is unique is the good precision this detector shows.

When it starts to find coins both 200 to 300 years old, it is very rewarding to go hunting with it.
I'm super happy and believes that it has not received the recognition that this middle class detector should have gotten.

minelab detector finds hammer coin.jpg

After days of heading out on my permission finding nothing but musket balls and modern coins I decided to investigate a field that has a stream running through it. After 5hrs of detecting I was almost ready to go home then BANG! A massive signal so naturally I dug it up and it was a nice James 1st 1603 hammered shilling so then I rechecked the hole and another 12.36 signal and I thought no it couldn't be, I couldn't be that lucky but I was… the CTX 3030 strikes again with another hammered 1603 shilling but while I was looking for the silver signal the pinpointer picked up another object under the hammy so up it came and WOW! Gold... Gold baby!! A beautiful 18th century posy ring in amazing condition. This is the best pocket spill I've ever found. I'm a happy man :)

1783 Georgio Triumpo & 1853 gold dollar

minelab detector finds 1853 dollar.jpg

I picked up a Minelab E-TRAC in July of this year, I took it out to one of my favorite spots that I have worked over with another machine several times. I pulled up two very nice coins in the past couple weeks, the first coin i pulled up was the 1783 Georgius Triumpho token in great condition with no die crack on the reverse along with several other relics, and a couple trips later to the same spot, i got a faint little blip decided to dig it, and pulled up my first gold coin a 1853 gold one dollar coin. i love my new E-TRAC, it has opened up a whole new world of detecting and brought back to life spots i thought where dead. Thank you Minelab for re-energizing my hunting hole and bringing new life to the hobby i love ...

minelab detector finds badge back.jpg

Digging deeply in the dark without the torch….feeling something rounded like a coin, may be not…..I put it in the pocket and run to the car. The treasure I found was the emblem of electoral association of Vologda region. Later at home I clean the emblem and showed it to my father. He told me that he lost it when he was a child long time ago and was grounded for that. Here is all the story happened.

Scary greed

minelab detector finds treasure.jpg

Between years were very fashionable metal detectors Korea. Some detectors have been frantic to catch more gold rings and use other tamjikkun. Most of the resources were depleted in the West Sea. Minelab detectors are reliable. The best of the entire detector is CTX 3030 retention. The desire of the people, directly and scary days money ...
