minelab-best-metal-detector-finds-coin and ring.jpg

It has been a few couple of weeks since my last outing, so last night being a good night I made a quick trip down to the beach. After setting up the machine, I'd only taken a few steps and a nice 32 signal on the display was indicated and sure enough it was a $2 coin got a few more mixed coins some had in the sand for a long time the display on the machine is so good especially when the backlight is on it’s so easy to see at night. Moving on a few more signals came on the display but mostly pulltabs and a few foils then i got a 38 signal and a good tone and sure enough as I dug the target up I could see it shining in the scoop, it was a small silver ring stamped 925 I was happy with that, so that concluded the night hunt until next time happy hunting.

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.

a "nest" of targets

CTX 3030

January 03, 2015 08:00am

Fortunately, the CTX3030 has a small coil CTX06 Smart Coil allowed me to properly locate and discriminate often multiple targets in the same hole with nails and aluminum waste.

Thank you to Minelab team for having created a such powerful and so sophisticated device, allowing me to fully satisfy my hobby!

CTX 3030

December 30, 2014 08:00am

Well what a morning found my best ever piece of gold jewellery . Went to a spot at the beach I Have been to many times before, I scored a few pre decimals and two gold rings one a small 18k band and the other a large 9k signet ring but the best find is a heavy gold chain stamped 999 which is pure gold, when I first saw it in the scoop I wad stoked but as soon as I picked it up i knew it was something special the weight is remarkable and that deep rich colour looked amazing.
Back at home it weighed 37.55 grams. Needless to say it is my find of a lifetime.
Thank you Minelab for producing such a great detector.

Oldies Rock

CTX 3030

December 29, 2014 08:00am

Rocky Beaches I normally avoid. Big Mistake. Having worked the sandy patches of a local Adelaide beach with no real luck except for a few $2 and $1's, I decided to try the rocky stretch further along. Immediately I recorded a solid 12.41 and there was my first Penny under a large round rock. An 1892, followed soon after by a 1917 One Florin - 2 Shillings. I knew this patch hadn't been worked before or at least not thoroughly as I pulled Sixpences, another Florin, Two 1950's shillings and some very old Victoria pennies which unfortunately the date was unreadable...Thanks to my 3030, it was a fun couple of hours before the tide came in. I'll be back there asap.. and finding more rocky beaches to explore..

My first year

CTX 3030

December 27, 2014 10:00am

It's not my first year detecting but it is my first year with a Minelab and of course, it is the first year made of gold!
I used my Minelab CTX 3030 searching in shallow water with very good results, i started to find gold very soon with my CTX. It is a powerful and immediately easy to use detector; easy to set, clear tones and very good in target separation.

Charles 1st Penny and Shilling

CTX 3030

December 27, 2014 09:00am

very first coin found with new CTX was a penny that all the other detectors had missed on a road scrape at Stony Stratford. Went out on Boxing Day on a building site in Milton Keynes that was very muddy and found a shilling in good condition. Both coins have good portraits of the king. So far extremely happy with my new Christmas present.

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.
