Numerous finds with my Minelab X-TERRA 705 gold pack

X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack

January 04, 2015 08:00am

The Stories are all different for each pic. I got into metal detecting after learning about gold panning. I was working at harbor freight tools and decided to buy a cheap detector. Found a lot of change a 50cent piece, an 1892 barber dime. Then I decided I liked it so I bought my Minelab X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack. The pics shown are some stuff I've found. The first is a 10k gold plated wedding band I found in my neighbors yard 2 days after buying the Minelab. The next pic is stuff I Found in a campground field. I took my nieces and nephew out detecting that day they had a blast. My last picture is of a 50 cal bullet I believe that I found at the river.

Monster 1784 8 Reale


December 31, 2014 08:00am

At the bottom of the plug about 10 inches deep was this shiny bottom of a can….no it’s a continental dollar, no it’s a Spanish 8 Reale. It is a monster of a coin stuck to the bottom of the plug. Catching the remaining light of the setting sun, I was in disbelief as I read the date of 1784. I was thrilled as I raised it in the air and Mike from a distance could see this coin. Mike seemed to be as happy as me. He said this is one of his best days of detecting ever. I was glad he was having a great time.

Two Diamond Rings Returned to Their Owner

CTX 3030

December 24, 2014 08:00am

We made arrangements to meet at a coffee shop near my home. The woman and her husband drove an hour from their home to meet me. The woman told me she had lost the rings a couple weeks ago. She had set the rings on her towel before she went in the water. When she left the beach, she shook the towels and headed for the car. When she arrived at the car she realized that the rings were gone. Her and her husband returned to the spot where she thought she lost them. While crying, she searched the area for two hours without any luck. Over the next two weeks, she could not stop thinking about the rings. Her friends told her to forget about them and stop torturing herself. The couple gave me a $200 gift certificate as a token of their gratitude. I have never seen a more grateful and happy woman.

First Eagle button


December 18, 2014 08:00am

Last Saturday, Dec 13, a friend and I decided to hunt a local field. With only a couple of hours to hunt and bad weather in the forecast we started hunting. After about 45 minutes and nothing much to show for it my E-TRAC sounded off . A strong 12-27 signal and there it was. My first eagle button. I showed it to my friend and started swinging the coil again and bang, 2 foot from the first button there was a second one.

Brass pipe tomahawk!

CTX 3030

December 16, 2014 08:00am

On November 20th while using my CTX 3030 I made another sweet find.
I live in Victoria BC and I have made some pretty amazing finds with the CTX so far but this is one I just did not expect at all.
I had been detecting for a while that day finding mainly modern coins when I got a nice mellow mid-range tone and I popped this round ball out at 3"
Not over 50' further I had a very sweet high tone that screamed dig me. The indications were that it was at 2" but I had to go 4" before I actually saw some of this. Indications are that it is circa mid-1800s.
The first pic is as found and the second is with just minor cleaning. I just can't wait to see what the next surprise is. Thanks for looking and thank you Minelab for your great products.

65 Bullets In The Hole!


December 15, 2014 08:00am

After digging down at least 12" I found a .69 cal minie. I rechecked the hole and then the fun was on!! I called my hunting buddy over and we enlarged the hole. Bullets just kept dropping out of the side walls of the hole!!. After about 1 hour of digging we got 65 bullets from the hole, which was loaded with square nails also. I have used the X-TERRA 70 with the 10.5DD HF Coil since 2007 and have yet found another machine to cut thru the iron and deliver the goods relic hunting!!
Thanks Minelab for a great detector!!
