With the onset of the Spring Storm season in Perth beach hunting can turn up some nice surprises. I had been keeping my eye on one particular beach north of Perth for some time. After returning from a trip

Pile of yellow in the scoop!

Excalibur II

Pine said he was going to be there as well and he was. I am a touch taller so I was able to get a touch deeper but it only yielded a few clad coins. after a bit my arm was throbbing and I went shallow so my shorts could dry. Pine and I were chatting and swing pretty much next to each other when he got a signal we both thought was going to pan out to be nice. But it ended up being a bling earring. About 10 to 15 feet away I got a foil signal on the Excalibur II and figured it was going to be another foil safety seal from a bottle. Well I shook the scoop and saw the glimmer of a GOLD pile in the scoop. I think I shouted at that point. Well it is a SWEET 26in 15.3 grams (total weight) 14k chain and Dolphin pendant. I ended up with $4.44 in clad an earring and GOLD!!! Just awesome!!!

Hey folks, I began offering a service for recovering lost rings and jewelery on our South Jersey beaches last summer. I have had many successful recoveries. I do not charge for my efforts or service, I am just happy to reunite an owner with a treasured lost item especially if it has significant sentimental value to the owners.

212 target day and GOLD

Excalibur II

July 22, 2014 09:00am

Went to a lake and hunted a beach with a friend that must have not been hunted in a long time. I was using my Excalibur II and he was using his Garrett At Pro. I was getting hits after hits digging it all. I started working the buoy line that separates the deeper water from the shallow side I got a low foil like tone. I figured it was just a wrapper from a cigar pack like I have gotten before. To my huge surprise I saw a Yellow Bracelet hanging half out of my scoop and after looking it was marked 14k but had CZ's in it! A little while later we decided to take a break and as I was just about out of the water I got a tone that was higher pull tab. when I was washing the clay out I saw a sweet sight of yellow again. This time it was a 10k men’s ring with some small real stones. WOW 2 gold but I was not done. LOL. We continued to hunt for a while after our break and just at the end my LAST target of the day at the water’s edge again was a blip on the Excal. I dug 2 scoops and in the bottom of the clay clog I saw a tiny yellow ring. It is 10k and missing whatever was in the center of it. BIG WOW 3 gold items! I ended the day with Gold some silver and $11.95 in Clad! My buddy found 1 silver stud earring and about $6 in clad. I love my Minelabs!

I recently spent some time detecting on the east coast of Florida in the Sebastian inlet area. My CTX 3030 was crushing the competition picking stuff up others walked right by... The weather was beautiful and I found a 14K white Gold ring a 14K white gold Mariners Cross a sterling Silver cross and chain and a sterling tennis bracelet with rubies emeralds and sapphires and allot of clad worth a few dollars...but my biggest treasure was found inside a clump of sand I picked up and brought back to Delaware it has an old brass eyelet with canvas wrapped around it...after it was cleaned by Dale W. Clifton owner of the shipwreck Museum at Fenwick Island DE. he noticed two Silver 1715 era Spanish Half Reale Cobbs imbedded in the Conglomeration. Dale was very kind an issued me a letter of authenticity for my finds. If you want to get motivated visit his Shipwreck Museum in Fenwick… truly amazing! I'm elated my first real piece of real treasure...See you on the beach!

My oldest coin to date, an English Penny 1873. Also One gold ring, 1 gold bracelet, other rings and hundreds of Goldies *pictured* and lots of other decimals.

Another one

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.
