E-TRAC

minelab best metal detector finds gun .JPG

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 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.

Finding and returning a Platinum wedding band and engagement ring with a 1.3 carat diamond this summer, http://nypost.com/2014/08/30/wedding-ring-lost-on-beach-found-returned-to-heartbroken-wife/ , was my find of a lifetime until I hit this 14K gold chain, 30 inches and weighting 57.9 dwt.
Good deeds do get rewarded.

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.

minelab best metal detector finds ring in norway gold hand.jpg

It was early September and we were planning a whole day of detecting for our members of the club, the site we acquired permissions to detect on where over 250 acres and had quite a lot of history too it.

One of them is the legend of Haakon Jarl beeing beheaded by his own slave in the year 995, upon delivering Haakon Jarls head to the new king Olav Tryggvason the slave got his own head cut off as well for his betrayal against his former king.

It is olav Tryggvason and the slaves cut off head you can see on the city statue in Trondheim today. A central piece of our city's history.

We had hopes of finding something that could be linked too this legend on the site and we set off 22 men strong onto the fields. The hours went on without many good find leaving the soil, a few silver coins here and there dating about 200 years back but nothing sensational.

The Beach is Still Hot

minelab best metal detector finds al.jpg

I started Metal Detecting in 1979. I used to mainly Detect inland. But found out the Atlantic Coast Beaches can produce Great Finds and easy target retrieval. I like to Metal Detect after North Eastern Storms and Hurricane's, I am presently watching Hurricane Gonzalo, Oct 2014 on NOAA. I live about 4 1/2 hour drive from the East Coast. I mainly search from the North Carolina Outer Banks to Florida. It took me over 30 years to Find my Current Beach Hot Spot. I usually have to detect this area 12-13 hour straight because of the tides and sometimes have to wear a Life jacket because of the currents. The enclosed pictures are what I Find in (1 ) Day . The Rare South Carolina Militia Plate was Detected recently along with the Coins from the 1700-1800 and the Flat Buttons. The 1st time I located this spot I could see Coin and Buttons from the 1800's just lying on the Beach, I detected for over 20 hours in 2 Days. I use a Minelab Excalibur with an 8 inch coil. The day before I found this site I ordered a Minelab E-Trac. What was I thinking. -goldnugget

minelab best metal detector finds treasure clip.jpg

Hi, about a month or so ago, I submitted a story about finding an early gold cuff link (click to read) at an old church site1850's. Yesterday I was working the gold fields around Blackwood and decided I had had enough and was heading home, driving down the road, I passed the old church and decided I'd get out and have a bit of a swing for a while, I picked up a 1942 penny and a 1853 three pence, I was now happy and headed towards my car when I got a nice strong signal, 3" down and out popped the matching cuff link to the one I found a while ago.

minelab best metal detector finds coin and ring.jpg

First hits were a couple of the beautiful Henry VI groats, then i got a different kind of tone, we shared the digging as by now we were going down a good two inches deeper than the standard coil had and found another stunning groat, before we filled in the hole I stuck in my propoint and there was something else there! pushing in my finger I flicked out a shining gold ring - intricately decorated and set with a polished deep blue stone it took my breath away and even seeing pictures of it now still gives me the goosebumps!

X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack

minelab best metal detector finds coins.jpg

The weather was bleak and the beach trips were put on halt for a little while. The days have improved so I made a trip down to the beach the gold and silver was none existing but the coins were plenty full, and I was using the X-TERRA 705 with a stock coil. I have to try the 15inch coil next trip as I can cover more ground and also go deeper this machine runs fine and is very easy to use so until next time enjoy and good luck hunting.
