Hi Five


July 01, 2014 08:00am

The night was cool but I was itching to try my coiltek 15inch 18.75khz coil on my X-TERRA 705 gold. Everything worked fine covering more ground and going a bit deeper wasn't a bad thing at the beach. Some sort of detector suspension device is advised as it can get a bit tiring after a while. Targets were coming along nicely but a bit trickier to pinpoint, like they say practice makes perfect, all in all it was time well spent in the pic are some of the finds happy hunting to all.

Silver Loyalist Shoe Buckle

Silver Loyalist Shoe Buckle.jpg

Last year, shortly after purchasing my new Minelab E-TRAC, I took it for a test swing at one of my Loyalist sites. It was iron infested and tough going, but managed well in TTF. I pulled a few 1797 cartwheel pennies and a 1786 Massachusetts copper from around the foundation. I was amazed at how well the E-TRAC saw the coppers through all of the nails!!

Next signal was a broken, choppy signal and that is all I remember about it now. If my memory serves me correctly, it was about 7" down. I dug the plug and at the bottom of the hole was this ugly black thing which I thought was junk. I threw it in my pouch and didn't think any more of it.

When I got home and was going through my finds for the day, I pulled that item out again. I looked at it pretty hard before I realized what it was, and even then, still thought that it may be pewter.

Silver signals

X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack

June 25, 2014 08:00am

We all know how good it is to find gold rings at the beach the thrill certainly makes the heart race, in saying that it’s almost just as much fun finding silver. The glimpse of something shiny in the scoop sends the mind racing is it silver, is it titanium, is it white gold, is it platinum, until we see some numbers stamped inside the ring we can never be too certain. Silver being a very good conductor and easy picked up certainly outnumbers the gold rings in my collection anyway, no matter what one finds it’s still a thrill so keep on going, in the photo are some of my earlier finds with my Minelab sovereign, and a few recent ones with my X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack happy hunting to all concerned.

Watch this


June 19, 2014 08:00am

The coin count has certainly slowed down a little during these cooler months but still finding jewellery. A nice citizen dress watch over 15 years ago was found at a particular spot so not having much luck at my usual beach I decided to try this spot again. After a few good signals of which were dollar and two dollar coins I got a different numerical value on the screen. As I started digging I saw something shiny as I cleaned the sand there was a nice pulsar watch s/steel band in the scoop. So after 15 years of finding the first watch I find another same spot coincidence or luck we will never know ?

digging with the scoop I saw something shiny cleaning the sand there was a nice pulsar watch s/steel band I was happy with that .So after

Exciting Gold finds from the Bronze age in Denmark


June 11, 2014 08:00am

The story of how I found the gold ring comes here.
I had bought a Minelab Safari and go out and try it on a grass field. I knew that was previously found 6 gold rings from the Bronze Age, in this field. I had probably gone and searched for 15 minutes when I got a good signal. My search partner who walked beside me, came over with his detector to see if it could be something good. I told him that it was probably a gold ring. It was just saying for fun. I stick the spade down and rocking it up. I did not believe my eyes.

X-TERRA 705 Metal Detector Control Box

I was out one day looking around at the local school. I had been hunting for about two hours and only had about two dollars in change. As the day light started to fade I started to head back to my car thanking that I had turned off my detector. With the machine by my side. I started to head down the steps. When my detector went off with a loud tone. I scan to see what made the loud sound . My machine read a 45 on a X-TERRA 505 @ 4 in deep. I dug and seen a beautiful silver eagle and a FFA lettering. Cleaning off the dirt I seen I had a big silver FFA ring. Thank you MINELAB

Sterling silver

X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack

June 08, 2014 01:00pm

The trips to the beach have been regular but the finds have been a little irregular.I notice also once the tractors have gone through I only seem to pick up 50 cents and 5cents and occasional 2 and 1 dollar coin this pattern seems to repeat itself without fail I did find some small jewellery.Its the thrill of the hunt that keeps us going in this hobby I might invest in a 15 inch coil for the xterra to cover more area at the beach and gain a little more depth to maximise my time at the beach and increase my find rate happy hunting.
