minelab ctx detector finds spanish reale coin.jpg

I picked up in my hand, a completely encapsulated coin with only the shiny edges exposed. I knew from the location and the items previously found at the location it was going to be old. So 1st thing, I made sure not to rub it at all. I poured some water from my water bottle over the coin in my hand to reveal this beautiful 1773 Spanish One Real.

Just ten minutes later I dug a King George I Half Cent!

Lifelong dream find

GPX 5000

March 30, 2015 08:00am

When I checked the hole I still has the same signal and it sounded great. When I finally removed more dirt (down to about 10 inches) this gray looking coin was looking at me straight in the face. I jumped thinking it was a token or even better, a seated half dollar. Nope!!! None of the above, but instead turned out to be the most incredible find of my life. A union civil war soldiers pewter ID disc in awesome condition. The soldier's history was unimaginable for an ID disc, which included the 7 days war, Antietam, Bull Run and Fredricksburg. I am still on cloud 9 a weeks later. My most precious find, Thank you Minelabs, your detectors ROCK!!!!!!!!

Got 8!

GPZ 7000

March 27, 2015 04:00pm

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.

Relics find

Eureka Gold

March 26, 2015 12:00am

I found these with my Eureka gold metal detector, some of the findings are musket balls , silver spoon at 14inch deep, dinner knife and spoon some metal and brass buttons, an eagle pin and other misc metal pieces, these were found in area with there was a military fort . I think they are from the Spanish American War back in 1800. When not detecting for gold the Eureka gold detector works well looking for relics.

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.

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


March 16, 2015 08:00am

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

March 15, 2015 08:00am

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.
