New E-TRAC opened up my world... We are in love


April 28, 2014 09:00am

I recently purchased a E-TRAC. Prior I had a safari and a X-TERRA 705. I ended up hunting a local park that I have hunted many times... but wow... THIS MACHINE KILLS IT. In one week of use (learning curve not bad coming from the safari) I have found.
pocket spill of 3 Indian Head pennies all 1892
30 wheats (9 inches or deeper) oldest 1909
1909 V Nickel
3 Silver rings
5 Silver Coins (2 being war nickels)
1 pure silver spoon!

First detection

I bought a X-TERRA 705 this winter and waited till last week to use it because in Quebec, winter has been cold and snowy. I had never used a metal detector before, except 30 years ago, with my uncle, when we dug a 1 meter deep hole in my grand-parents back-yard to find a big iron sheet.

So this week, I have detected in 2 local parks (about 10 hours in total) and I liked the thrill to discover (modern) coins. I m starting to get to know my detector and it seems a very good machine!

1966 high school class ring found and returned to owner

A 1966 ring-2.JPG

A few months ago I and a detecting friend were using our E-TRACs at an old school playground about 120 miles from home when I got this interesting and strong signal. The thought came to me, "10,000 pull tabs for each gold ring" and when I got to it, BINGO, this long lost class ring popped out! After nearly three months of research and many contacts, I was finally successful in returning the 1966 class ring to its rightful owner. Priceless!!!

Take a Bite out of Detecting

Out detecting an old picnic grove from the early 1900 in northern New Jersey when my E-TRAC shows a 12-12. So I dug a plug about 8' down and see a piece of gold foil, after pulling it out of the hole I turned it over and saw the teeth marks. I found someone's gold dental caps. Passed over the hole again and pulled out an old beer bottle cap. Guess he used his teeth to open the beer.

Jáchymov - Cradle U.S. dollar

CTX 3030

I'm trying everything possible, so I wanted to find nuggets. As you walking in Australia or America. But there is a problem - nowhere near us has gold. In our region, however, since the Middle Ages silver was mined. I have read a few clever books and found the nearest possible location. I chose Jáchymov.

In the area are pure crystalline silver and the local silver veins often based directly on the surface and Schottenbergu (now Castle Hill) and Türckenbergu (today around dimensions guards and hats) were reportedly even finding the 'grass' or in the roots of uprooted trees and with a little luck we might be able to kick some nice coin. Maybe rare Jáchymov thaler.

In the footsteps of the "34"...

During the campaign of Italy in the summer of 1944, the Allied troops fought fiercely to conquer every foot of ground troops to Nazi-fascist, determined to slow their advance as possible in anticipation of the completion of the second true line of defence (the Gothic Line) after having sold at a high price that the line Gustav hinged on the famous Abbey of Montecassino.

The fights here in Tuscany have however been violent and witness the left indelible traces in both small towns and in the countryside or in the hills...

700 years old Silver Medieval Religious Ring Found

x-terra finds Silver Medieval Ring 1300-1500.JPG

My local metal detecting club has a highly organised committee who arranges metal detecting rallies for large groups at numerous historical sites. It was with great excitement that I set off for the latest rally on 170 plus acres of undetected farmland with history abound.

The site had a Bronze barrow close by, a moated Medieval site dating back to the 13th Century, English Civil War links, 2 17th/18th Century mills, and was not far from a historical Roman town.

180 detectorists met at the farm site and set off detecting, with 2 Find Liasion Officers waiting to record any great finds made.
