anillo oro roqueta 3.jpg

The discovery of the week, under the soil of Roqueta island, rescued a ring, apparently as a foreign gift to Acapulco (I think could be given to a girl) and that has the following engraved inside For My Mexicanita, 6/25/50. Quality work and hand engraving make it an interesting piece and makes me think how much I loved her Mexican abroad! take the piece to a friend check it is 18k gold …

Jewellery or junk

X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack

July 07, 2014 10:00am
treasure.jpg

Not everything found down at the beach is junk as detecting is out until the weekend I thought I'd send a pic of some recent and previous finds .These finds might not be valuable but some can definitely be of interest or of unusual shape, sometimes this cannot be confirmed until the object is cleaned, this has happened to me with crusty coins they almost look like rusty washers. A good way of cleaning up beach finds is to purchase an ultrasonic cleaner, they work reasonably well without causing damage to the object being cleaned and they are not expensive happy hunting.

Video Success Story

It always happens like this, your heading back to the rig and something catches your eye. This hunt was no different. Having been given exclusive digging rights to an old historical site was excitement in itself. The possibilities of what can be found alone were enough to make me race to the place and get digging! A new playground had also been built just weeks before so I wanted to check that out as well. I spent about 3 hours at the site without finding anything of any real age. I started to draw the conclusion that a lot of back fill had been brought in tho level things out so tourist would have an easier time viewing the mining displays. But hey, sometimes that's the way it goes. The last thing I noticed was a large Birch tree with large lower branches parallel to the ground standing alone by itself on the lower part of the site. First thing I thought was, if I was a kid, I’d be climbing that tree for sure! As I started detecting around the base, I got a quarter signal on my Minelab X-TERRA 705 telling me my suspicions might be correct. The target was real shallow and signal very bright. When I gently pried the plug back I could see a ring with an Amber bezeled stone showing.

Hi Five

X-TERRA 705

July 01, 2014 08:00am
finds.jpg

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

E-TRAC

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

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.

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
