1781 Spanish Silver

CTX 3030

September 19, 2015 08:00am

So after about 7hrs of hunting and sweating, mainly from detecting farm fields back and forth, back and forth, in almost 90 degree heat with full gear on. Man was this a nice surprise!
It’s my third one this year and like I said, what a welcomed surprise!

Who said Minelab detectors can't find steel coins?

The sensitivity setting will depend on which coil you are using. If you are using the stock 11" coil or the 5 X 10 Coiltek coil a setting of 5 will be good but if like me you want coverage and use the 17" bigfoot coil a setting of 3 is preferred. This way you are only scanning the ground to a depth of 2"to 3" on coin sized objects. A quick wave of the pinpointer over the target will confirm a surface find or some deeper iron object. Over the last three days hunting at a local park i have recovered a total of $112.85 this way. And three silver rings as a sweet kicker. The photos are the clad totals from the three days of hunting.

My name is Dwight Colon and my best friends name is Christopher O'Connell. It all started 8years ago. We both were sitting on the couch of our apartment and I looked over at him and said BROTHER DO YOU BELIEVE IN TREASURE HUNTING AND PIRATE TALES. HE gave me a look like and said OH YEAH I DO. So we both started doing research on history of wrecks and pirates. It all lead back to the TREASURE COAST OF FLORIDA and MEL FISHER. We were so pumped and ready to buy some metal detectors and we did 5 days later and started a club called THE NEW AGE GOONIES. WE ARE BOTH CERTIFIED DIVERS AND EXTREME TREASURE HUNTERS. We love what we do and we love the hunt. MINELAB MACHINES ARE OUR GO TO FOR METALDETECTORS THEY WORK GREAT AND ARE VERY GOOD TO US ON THE HUNTS THANK YOU SO MUCH.

A Civil War Soldiers 1858 U.S. Seated Half Dollar

CTX 3030

seated half.jpg

Here in SW Missouri we have a colorful Civil War history. It is that history that I am interested in finding. My ancestors were on both sides of the argument, and that actually was what got me into searching for Civil War Relics. I have used many detectors over the years but the CTX is finding more for me, especially coins and buttons on edge. I have dug a lot of US Half Dollars but never a Seated Half Dollar. You have to tip your cap to Minelab, the CTX is in a class of its own!

An unexpected Seated Dime

CTX 3030

August 24, 2015 10:00am

After submersing the Seated Dime into the puddle of water, I began dabbing gently at the little bit of dirt stuck to the dime, slowly washing it away with every dab, the date was revealed. 1854 with Arrows. My second seated coin ever, and it's a very fine 1854. After seeing that I was done detecting for the day, I ran home to give the dime a quick shot of electrolysis, and took many pictures to post on social media to show my friends. A great day for my Ctx, and me!

Unearthing American History

CTX 3030

August 24, 2015 08:00am

While detecting along an old abandoned dirt road, deep in the Forrest of western Pennsylvania, I Found this beautiful Liberty Capped Bust Half Dime! Score! I honestly had no idea what it even was. lol. Finally decided to kick back and have a seat in the dirt, and then, right by my feet on the surface of a lightly ploughed field there was my an Arrowhead! Just sitting there! That's two first for me today!
Minelab, thank you for making the best Metal Detecting Technology in the world!

Silver Spoon


August 23, 2015 09:00am

Another steady 40. That's a quarter. I knew it wasn't silver. I knew it had to be another sandwiched Washington. I dug my plug to get it. When I flipped my plug, I turned on my pinpointer and jabbed it into the plug. I checked the hole. Nothing. I checked my pinpointer against my shovel and it was indeed working. I jammed it back in the hole. I heard a beep. This was definitely a deep quarter down there. I dug the hole deeper. I tried the pinpointer again and I was right on it. With my gloves on, I wiped away some dirt and I saw a perfectly round piece of shiny metal. I got excited and continued to scrape away until I reached my finger under and pried it up. Is this just another spoon? I wiped it clean and instantly saw the word "sterling". Finally! Upon investigation, I found it was made by J E Caldwell and had the initials EKM on it as well as a date inscribed reading "April 1907". I couldn't be happier.

First find of the Go-find 60


August 21, 2015 08:00am

Took the Go-find 60 out for its first trial run today. Figured out how to put in the batteries, extent it, and turned it on. First find was a ring (!), it may be copper, it may be cheap, but who cares? it was not a pull tab, and no one knows what kind or value a ring is until it is dug. Spent an hour, 1 ring, 3 quarters, 1 nickel, 10 pennies, a metal toy ladybug, a fishing rod crank, a little junk, but a great introduction! I do need to figure out this pinpointing, as everything was about 2 inches off for me, which is very different for my other machine. Given how light and easy this is to use, it is now my GoToMachine. I Love it!!!

CTX 3030

August 20, 2015 10:00am

I got a call today, some buddies have been hunting for a big platinum ring lost last week. Wanted me to join them today. No camera and bring no others.
Ring was lost tossing a football - I am still amazed at the rings people wear to the beach and this is truly one of those amazing rings you only dream of finding – ring in the scoop.
Returning tomorrow around 10am – some reward – stand by for more.
