Two Diamond Rings Returned to Their Owner

CTX 3030

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.

My X-TERRA 70

X-TERRA 70

Hello all Minelab detectorists. I'll show you what you can do, my X-TERRA 70. I am looking for areas where there are not interesting historically. But I want to prove that it is worthwhile to look at Minelab everywhere. Here I'll show you what was found in one week. Part of the finds have already cleared and some just wash. Now I have to collect on the coil ellipse 18 kHz, and then you will be able to see what he can do my old X-TERRA 70. Best regards and wish you many beautiful discoveries.

Brass pipe tomahawk!

CTX 3030

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.

Broke into the 1600's!

CTX 3030

minelab-metal-detector-finds-1700-watch-winder.jpg

In the spring I tried to hunt the house but the ticks were so terrible that I could not hunt for more than 15 mins before I had to give up. On 12/3/14 I decided to go back and give it a shot and I'm glad I did!!! It started of slowly mainly due to the extreme underbrush and high grass but I crawled on my hands and knees hitting under all the trees that I could. I worked around a big old tree at the side of the house and found two wheat pennies under the roots and then I get a hit at 5" reading 12-42 on my CTX 3030 and I assume it's another wheatie but what I pulled out was simply staggering!! What I found was a Salzburg. Johann Ernst 15 Kreuzer 1694 silver coin that was made into a watch winder/spinner more than likely in the late 1700 to early 1800's. I have found many wonderful things including a gold pocket watch but none of those finds hold a candle to this great piece of history!

A coin becomes a ring

CTX 3030

minelab-metal-detector-finds-coin-made-ring.jpg

First they were both found very deeply with CTX 3030 and secondly this ring was made with this kind of bronze - aluminum coin. The technique involves drilling a hole in the coin and then using a conical tool coming distort and enlarge the hole. The finishing is made with a file. It is an economical way for making a ring. It is a period ring and I found it on the towpath near a canal.

Good summer!

minelab metal detector finds treasure in summer bowl all.JPG

Hi everybody,
I started detection in Québec City last April and posted a comment in success stories saying I was enjoying myself. Well, now that winter has arrived, here are all my finds: 1250$ in cash and a few rings and pieces of jewellery. I only searched in modern parks so I found modern money (actually it is forbidden to search in public historical sites). Last week-end , I tried Parc Dalhousie and found 35 CAD$ in 4 or 5 hours...and 37 coins of 1 cent in the same hole. So next year, I will try to hunt near St Lawrence River, see you soon!

minelab metal detector finds gold tooth.jpg

 I nearly dismissed it into my scrap pouch when a glint caught my eye. Scraping off some of the crusty stuff I realised what I was holding. I'm not really sure what to do with it but I have a feeling it will be one of those finds that would be hard to top as far as uniqueness. It weighed in at 5.3 grams, appears to have been stuck down originally with some sort of epoxy and probably would have had a heck of a story to tell if it could have still been able to talk.

Clasped hands-ring

minelab metal detector finds roman ring 1.JPG

My heart almost stopped when I finally saw the ring and knew instantly what this was. Such rings are known since Roman times, and this is special with runes and Latin letters.
It is now delivered to the Bergen Museum's archaeologists and it is estimated to originate from about 1000-1300's
Wow what a hobby. I believe that we as metal detectors could help piece together our history by finding these little puzzle pieces. We can also find what our ancestors through the centuries have lived and existed there.

My First Beach Find

Quattro MP

November 11, 2014 09:00am
minelab metal detector finds coins.JPG

All up I found a total of $21.46 and the Six Pence.  Many people might say that is not much, but given that this was my first ever attempt at detecting and the beach in this area is racked clean by the local council, I feel that this was a good start.

Please see my attached photo of my find.
