The 4th Royal Irish Dragoon Guards, the 5th Dragoon Guards, the 7th Dragoon Guards and the 6th Inniskilling Dragoons. All four were raised between 1685 and 1689, during the protracted contest between James II and William of Orange for the English throne.

Both the 4th and 5th Dragoon Guards were formed in 1685 from Troops of Horse raised by James II to defend London from the invasion.

Coin pouch in the forest

CTX 3030

June 30, 2015 08:00am
minelab-metal-detector-finds-coins.jpg

I went into the forest close to a location that I've been hunting a lot. This was the first signal i got within 2 minutes of detecting! I searched for about 2 more hours, but I found nothing other than rifle casings and rusty nails.
The location nearby used to be a gathering location for the European traveling people/gypsies called "tatere". This coin pouch was probably lost way after this time, and I don't know what kind of people that might have lost it, but that's one of the mysteries that comes with this hobby "who lost this item?

This was found with the wonderful CTX 3030!
It kicks trough the dirt and finds me the treasure that's hiding there!

The Powers of the CTX 3030

CTX 3030

I have been using the CTX now for a couple of months and found that customising the machine to suit the fields I am working really does make a difference. I made my own Pattern and running on combined tones and after two trips out this week have found these wonderful silvers. The seal was from the beach a few weeks ago. Thanks again Minelab team.

CTX 3030 Success

minelab-ctx-detector-finds-treasure1.jpg

Recently I bought a 17 inch coil for my CTX 3030 in the hope of extracting more finds from some of my pasture sites...This time of year most people are restricted to pasture in the UK due to many sites being under crops.....previously I had searched the area with the standard coil but with the ground getting drier targets had decreased.....However the 17 inch coil renewed the site and I reckon I was getting at least 5-6 inches extra depth....I found a door or casket key escutcheon plate at what wasn't under 16 inches down in the soil....I also found a stunning Pipe Tamper in the form of St George killing the fabled dragon and a few days ago a marvellous Elizabeth the 1st silver shilling at around 14 inches down (must remember to take some sort of accurate measuring device) Since I had been working this small site for 8 months on and off I was clearly getting extra depth.... and as for small targets how did the 17 inch coil perform on these? Well an 8mm.button of the Royal Artillery dating to 1810 answers that one. Build quality and performance what more does one requires for our hobby? Attached are some of my finds, hope you enjoy them. Thank you Minelab as always....

Lord William Russel’s Hawk Ring

Lord Russell's silver Hawking Ring (1).JPG

From a rainy start on an early Sunday Morning, myself and fellow Club members of the Dorset Relic Hunters Metal Detecting Club sat out to search for the hidden history hidden in a field in the Hampshire area.

The area has great historic interest from Bronze Age right through to post medieval, so you never know what is going to be found.

Within 3 minutes I was finding old pennies then it was starting to get dark so I worked my way back to the car. Then I got this nice sound belting out my headphones so I said to myself this is the last hole of the day I dug a hole at about 7" and out popped this little ring my heart was pounding with excitement so off I drive home to clean the ring and this is how it cleaned up.

minelab metal detector finds ancient coin piece.jpg

Like a normal forum dig, everyone is very friendly and we end up chatting for the first couple of hours!!
When I finally managed to start detecting, I pulled up this beautiful but tiny Richard the lion Scottish hammered coin. It was my first cut quarter hammered I have ever found so I was over the moon.
