minelab detector finds coin 1916.jpg

I knew the day was going to be good. A few minutes later a 12-44 at 5 inches. I figured on another rosie but out popped a mercury dime. I could see the 1916 on the front and a mint mark on the back but couldn't make it out. I've dug 2 1916 and 3 1916s this year so I wasn't to hopeful. I took the dime to the truck washed it and lo and behold there was the D. After 20 years of detecting I finally filled the last hole in the mercury collection. The hunt ended right there for the day. I can't be more pleased with the CTX 3030.

minelab detector finds hammer coin.jpg

After days of heading out on my permission finding nothing but musket balls and modern coins I decided to investigate a field that has a stream running through it. After 5hrs of detecting I was almost ready to go home then BANG! A massive signal so naturally I dug it up and it was a nice James 1st 1603 hammered shilling so then I rechecked the hole and another 12.36 signal and I thought no it couldn't be, I couldn't be that lucky but I was… the CTX 3030 strikes again with another hammered 1603 shilling but while I was looking for the silver signal the pinpointer picked up another object under the hammy so up it came and WOW! Gold... Gold baby!! A beautiful 18th century posy ring in amazing condition. This is the best pocket spill I've ever found. I'm a happy man :)

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.

minelab detector finds roman figure.JPG

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

17th century coins.jpg

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.
