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.

This beach trip was a bit different my mate was with me using his new X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack after a quick demo of we went. My mate could not believe how easy and accurate it was and it was his first time beach detecting after digging up some junk he got a 32 on the display digging it up it was his first $2.00 coin he was so excited and he had a grin from ear to ear I said to him wait till you start digging up gold. 

Anyway I was getting a few coins myself and then I got a36 on the display a number that is less common I dug the target up it was a nice sterling silver ring with a note on the front. I went and showed it to my friend boy was he excited. The coins totalled to over $18.00 not too bad after that trip my mate is hooked and we have arranged a trip to one of Sydney's more popular beach good luck to all.

Another one

CTX 3030

I always metal detect on the beach opposite the area before entering the water.  As this superb 18K gold ring with three 3/4 carat diamonds show, not all jewelry is lost in the water at tourist beaches.  My CTX 3030 helps me to avoid digging unwanted junk targets in the dry sand and find treasure between the trash. Thank you Minelab for changing my fortunes on another south Florida treasure hunt.

Be careful what you wish for

Explorer XS

It was a noisy birthday afternoon in January, 2014 as I prepared to blow out the candles on my cake. My only wish for the year was to find one.. lousy.. ring. After detecting for nearly two years and having a huge variety of crustys land into my find bag from tabs to large cents, one trophy still continued to evade my every swing. The weekend following I decided to take my lady out for a quick dig at our local stomping grounds before lunch. She has found two gold wedding bands here in the past three hunts so every shred of male in me was dying to be redeemed. Nearly 15 minutes after firing up the good ol' explorer, I went ballistic. A 13 gram 10K men's horseshoe ring practically threw its self out of the plug to meet my eyes. After that morning I have made it a point to detect every day before or after work no matter what the circumstances are. Since that day I have found 32 rings, 18 of which are gold, and over 60 silver coins. Thanks to all of the talented folks at Minelab who make this hobby pay for its self.

Tiffany & Co diamond engagement ring found in ocean...searched & found owners

Explorer II

May 19, 2014 08:00am

Perhaps everyone in this hobby prays, Lord let me find a diamond ring, and then spend most of their time finding hazardous objects like fish hooks and tent stakes. So when I discovered a ring in the sand, I was too excited for words. I thought to myself, finally, I may have found a prize to bring home to my wife.

Using an Explorer II custom mounted to my Pro Swing harness, I found the ring while hunting the edge of the surf in Jacksonville, Florida (USA). With the first couple scoops I retrieved a sinker and a coin. Before filling in the hole, I made one more swing and heard another target. As I reached deep in the hole, the target looked and felt promising.

Lucky find

X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack

May 16, 2014 09:00am

It was a good night to go detecting as I was detecting near the water targets were rare so I decided to try the dry sand. As I was walking up two teenagers there were very interested in what I was doing as I answered their questions we started getting coins one after the other the look on their faces was priceless they could not believe what was being found it was their first experience detecting. Moving along I got a signal and the display showed 36 I didn't guess what this target was one of the younger boys got on his knees and said it's something shiny as he picked it out of the sand we were surprised to see a silver ring and a black stone on it, the older boy took the ring and said it was stamped 925 boy were they booth excited they ran to their parents showing them the ring and the coins and asking their parents to buy a detector I'm sure they didn't get any sleep that night. The total coin count came to over $15.00 and a silver ring not bad for a nights work anyway good hunting to all and fill those holes up please.
