minelab-best-gold-detector-gpz-founds-8-gold-on-coil.jpg

I am on a roll.  Went out yesterday.  Got 8!!! Found 2 nuggets in the gully Miguel and I worked, but up on the side, then I found this new gully close by that looked untouched.  I got 6 more out of that gully with the crowning achievement being the last nugget that was 1.2 pennyweight at a depth of around 18 inches.  CRAZY!  It is the big sliver of gold in the picture and you can see the depth of the hole, with my coil in it.

13 keepers on Friday the 13th.

CTX 3030

Minelab detector finds coins.jpg

On March 13th I had the opportunity to take a new person to the area out detecting. He is has been using a Garret AT Pro for 2yrs and as yet had never found silver. He did manage to get his first ever silver coin that day but needless to say the CTX was singing a very different story. While he only managed one silver coin, a 1952 Canadian dime. I pulled 9 silver coins, 2 silver rings, 1 gold ring and a 1901 US $5 gold coin that has been made into a love token. What a wonderful day to be swinging the CTX. As yet the Chinese characters have not been fully deciphered but that will come.

Patagon

Excalibur 1000

minelab metal detector finds treasure coin front.jpg

Hunting on the Outer Banks a couple years ago after we had a good northerly wind for a couple days. Got a good strong signal near the dune line. After digging down for about a foot I figured it was probably an aluminium can. To my surprise it turned out to be a large coin. It was about the size of an old US silver dollar. I could make out a few things and after I got home discovered it had a 1623 date. Doing further research it turned out to be a Patagon. In the 1600's, Patagonia was a Country in Northern Europe where present day Belgium is located. This coin was probably off of a shipwreck near that site.

Detecting saved my son

X-TERRA 705

March 16, 2015 08:00am
minelab-metal-detector-finds-coin.jpg

The club consists primarily of a dozen or so "old-timers" and Jack who sits eagerly and attentively taking in the tips and information they generously share. Jack almost always wins several of the monthly "best finds" categories which seem to both impress and humble his fellow club members! Along with the pride this brought, Jack also was able to save enough "clad" (he found A LOT!) to purchase a barely used Minelab X-Terra 705 from an elderly gentleman we met in a park who was so impressed by Jack's enthusiasm for the hobby that he gave him a great deal as he had an extra one he could part with. Jack was in heaven!

My once in a lifetime find

CTX 3030

minelab-detector-finds-1861-coin.jpg

With the cold weather finally breaking I decided to find some treasure! On a permission hunt in Gainesville VA, I found my best find yet. My heart was racing at what I thought was a gold coin, upon further investigating it turned out to be something even better. I found a 1861 cival war dog tag belonging to soldier John Vanderpool. Found in Gainesville near the second battle of Manassas where he was injured in the line of duty. His brother also enlisted the same day as john. However his brother Simon Vanderpool became a deserter, eventually caught and reassigned to a different reg. Even more interesting, you can read a deposition from John explaining the death of his tent mate that got shot in the groin and bleed to death. Below is a little more info I was able to dig up.

First silver for 2015

CTX 3030

minelab-ctx-detector-finds-1745-silver.jpg

At long last the snow and ice cleared away and off I went on my first hunt for the year. Within 40 minutes of detecting I hit a strong 12-46 at 7" and there in the hole was a 1745 8 reale. After some patient cleaning you can see the end result, and some have said, " not a bad start to the year"

Texas Ranch Ringer

Safari

March 13, 2015 09:00am
minelab-detector-finds-100yr-old-ring-safari.jpg

I grabbed my Safari with newfound knowledge and experience, and re-attacked my backyard. I wasn't more than 20 feet from my back patio, and that lovely high pitched silver tone rang from my Safari. I was curious and immediately pinpointed the target. Low and behold, about 5 inches under the surface was this amazing peridot birthstone ring. My heart raced. I quickly sprinted inside to wash up my treasure and have a closer look at it under a magnifying glass. It was slightly bent as if it's owner had undergone some calamity, we do get quite a few tornadoes in this area, but it was beautiful nonetheless. It's an incredibly beautiful green, and pure silver. I could see the initials JCD on the back and 26, which I assume is 1926. I intend to seek out our historical society and find out who owned this property originally, but I'm so glad I had my Safari that day.
