Our local beaches cut for a few days last week thanks to a howling east wind and big swell. I managed to pull some gold out after a six month sanded in period. The CTX 3030 with the 17' coil took care of business.

We said goodbye and I walked with detector on towards my car at the border side, and on the spot where we all walked a few times and met at the start i received a beautiful loud tone....and digging 32 centimeters deep i did the found of my life....a bronze roman statue. I search for 32 years and this was my happiest metal detecting moment of my life...
I reported the found to the Archaeological service for identification, and this came back.

17th century coin out of the San Francisco Bay

It’s interesting that these coins were found around 100m apart (and a couple of years).

The San Francisco Bay was discovered by Europeans (Spain) back in 1769, and both coins predate this discovery. If a Chinese ship made it into the bay prior to 1769, that would be very interesting. But there are many other possibilities as to why these relatively old coins were found at the same bay site.

As with the E-TRAC, I’m very pleased with the CTX 3030.

Good Things Come When You Help!

When we got to my house and I washed the brass object off my eyes almost popped as I could see the words Abraham Lincoln! I knew immediately what it was as I have seen pictures of a couple others that had been dug. It is the 1860 Presidential token/medallion that had the tintype photos of Lincoln and his running mate Hannibal Hamlin inserted. Of course after being in the ground for at least a hundred years the tin types were rusted out but still I was pleased with this historic item!

Last minute decision

large cent Aug 14.jpg

I suspected it to be an old coin but it was so corroded I decided to wait to get home to try and clean it some. Still in the early stages of cleaning but already identified to being an 1820 large cent.

Maybe the moral to this story is..if your gut feeling says go detecting then go, you never know when it’s going to be your lucky day.

Video Success Story

Déjà Vu -- this has happened before and it was just as exciting!!  I quickly called Mark over to take control of the camera while I popped the nugget out of the ground. We got the final dig  live on video.   I finally ‘popped’ the nugget from it resting place and went crazy when I realized it was at least 2 ounces in size.  A nice chunky nugget with a lot of character! My largest nugget ever found ( 2.5 oz) and I found it with my Minelab CTX 3030.  What a great machine!   I own a Minelab GPX 5000, which is the cream of the crop when looking for gold, but the three largest nuggets that I have ever found were found with the CTX 3030!!

The rush and excitement of the find is why I love detecting so much.  The finds are just a bonus!!

Found someone’s lost loved one

It was a very hot day here in Florida, so I decided to head to a more shaded area to escape the heat. Took off swinging the CTX 3030 and locked on a sweet sounding signal. Dug about 4 inches down and out come this very detailed sterling silver necklace urn.
