The Silver Cross

They were called the silver Memorial Cross. It was incredible to learn of this young soldiers life and history. A true Canadian hero of WW1. Over the next few weeks we learned Edward Delong Burns had two boys and eventually a great granddaughter was located. She never knew the cross existed. I have owned many detectors over the years but the E-TRAC is truly the most incredible machine I have ever owned. I believe without the fine-tuned discrimination the E-TRAC can give you this story would never have happened and the silver cross would not have been returned to its rightful family. Thanks Minelab.

Video Success Story

Finally I hit a target that in any other setting I may have passed over, but as this field had NOTHING to give I figured I'd take a look to see what trash it was. It was a low penny tone. I dug a big plug and each time I broke it in half, and in half again, the chances increased that it was actually going to be a coin and not another beer can. Well, when I split the clod for the last time and the full side of the coin appeared, my heart started pumping in my throat. I placed it down and yelled at the top of my lungs to my friend who was about 200 yards away. Finally he turned and saw me jumping around like those fools on TV when they find an Indian head penny. I ran towards him and he ran towards me.... You should have seen his face as I yelled, " GOLD, GOLD it's GOLD!" We got back to the target... and the rest is in the video attached, for your viewing pleasure.

One Month with the New E-Trac (October)

My name is Keith and I've already had a good month with my Minelab E-Trac. It started with the 1881 Indian Head Penny then the 1799 Draped Bust Large Cent, my first. My next find was found in a cleared bean field that a 1870 school house once stood it's a nice Silver 1853 3 Cent Trime. The rest of the month included a 1901 and a 1890 Indian Head Penny, a 1947 British Penny, a toy cap gun and a silver plated spoon from 1903. The last find of the month was at a 1830 house and I dug down 10" to find a pocket spill of 5 Wheat Pennies a 1937 Buffalo Nickel, and two Mercury Dimes dated 1938 and 1942D. I found all these finds in the preset coin mode. I love this E-Trac and I'm sure my finds have only started. Thanks Minelab

minelab best metal detector finds morgan dollar.jpg

I was detecting a park that has been heavily hit over the years but knowing how the CTX 3030 performs I decided to give it a go. I was alerted with a very strong tone in my headphones and the detector was telling me a solid target at 7 ". The target was actually almost 8.5" down and I couldn't believe what was staring right at me, my first ever Morgan Dollar. Thank you Minelab for producing such an awesome detector.

minelab best metal detector finds gold ring and gold coin 2.jpg

It was quiet again for about an hour, until I got a solid two way midtone, solid 14 VDI, a perfect pulltab/gold signal. About 4" down I spied this beauty.

It's a 9.89g, 18k gold ring, with a 1977 Iranian 1/2 pahval gold coin. This is the find of my season for sure.

CTX 3030

October 24, 2014 08:00am

I hit the beach up here in New Hampshire after a Nor'easter and fighting the rain and wind I found 7 silver coins 1 walker half 5 rosies and 1 barber dime along with a couple Indians and wheaties . and a lot of clad. my last find hit at 12-7 a 14k white gold diamond ring. A very way to end the day. The CTX 3030 is a great all around hunting machine.

My second year with my 705 has been incredible. I have been lucky enough to have found several coins that I thought I never would. An 1866 two cent piece, a civil war store card and most recently my first silver dollar a 1901 Morgan. I have been hunting old house sights that are littered with trash and the 705s ability to separate has been the key to success.

1909 You're So Fine

1909 You’re So Fine

Hi, my name is Will, I live in northwest Iowa.  I’ve been hunting for about four years now and I have found some really cool things.  Nothing can compare to what I found on October 4, 2014, at least not yet.  I’m only about to get out to metal detect for a few hours a week.  Not as much as I’d like to though.  But when you have a wife and four kids at home that’s where most of your time is spent.  Here within the last 3 weeks I haven’t had much time to get out and dig.  If I did I wasn’t having much luck, that’s metal detecting for you, it has its ups and downs.  I’m sure all you fellow hunters out there can agree with that.
