a "nest" of targets

CTX 3030

Fortunately, the CTX3030 has a small coil CTX06 Smart Coil allowed me to properly locate and discriminate often multiple targets in the same hole with nails and aluminum waste.

Thank you to Minelab team for having created a such powerful and so sophisticated device, allowing me to fully satisfy my hobby!

Well what a morning found my best ever piece of gold jewellery . Went to a spot at the beach I Have been to many times before, I scored a few pre decimals and two gold rings one a small 18k band and the other a large 9k signet ring but the best find is a heavy gold chain stamped 999 which is pure gold, when I first saw it in the scoop I wad stoked but as soon as I picked it up i knew it was something special the weight is remarkable and that deep rich colour looked amazing.
Back at home it weighed 37.55 grams. Needless to say it is my find of a lifetime.
Thank you Minelab for producing such a great detector.

Oldies Rock

CTX 3030

December 29, 2014 08:00am

Rocky Beaches I normally avoid. Big Mistake. Having worked the sandy patches of a local Adelaide beach with no real luck except for a few $2 and $1's, I decided to try the rocky stretch further along. Immediately I recorded a solid 12.41 and there was my first Penny under a large round rock. An 1892, followed soon after by a 1917 One Florin - 2 Shillings. I knew this patch hadn't been worked before or at least not thoroughly as I pulled Sixpences, another Florin, Two 1950's shillings and some very old Victoria pennies which unfortunately the date was unreadable...Thanks to my 3030, it was a fun couple of hours before the tide came in. I'll be back there asap.. and finding more rocky beaches to explore..

My first year

CTX 3030

December 27, 2014 10:00am

It's not my first year detecting but it is my first year with a Minelab and of course, it is the first year made of gold!
I used my Minelab CTX 3030 searching in shallow water with very good results, i started to find gold very soon with my CTX. It is a powerful and immediately easy to use detector; easy to set, clear tones and very good in target separation.

Charles 1st Penny and Shilling

CTX 3030

very first coin found with new CTX was a penny that all the other detectors had missed on a road scrape at Stony Stratford. Went out on Boxing Day on a building site in Milton Keynes that was very muddy and found a shilling in good condition. Both coins have good portraits of the king. So far extremely happy with my new Christmas present.

Two Diamond Rings Returned to Their Owner

CTX 3030

December 24, 2014 08:00am

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.

Brass pipe tomahawk!

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.

Making a Great Site AMAZING

After securing that incredible artifact, I continued to dig. A few short yards further down the slope I hit a nice 12:45 coin signal on the CTX3030. Without missing a beat I dropped to one knee and started to pop out the target. Only 4 inches down, I pulled what appeared to be a large cent or maybe another KG, and then I turned it Over.

There I saw the unmistakable 13 link chain of a FUGIO cent... Not in the Greatest of condition but in one day I pulled a post-colonial pistol and a 1787 FUGIO across the River from the birthplace of our nation. This great digging site was Absolutely amazing that day.
