CTX 3030

Started detecting on April 2013 with a CTX 3030 in Toronto, Ontario Canada. Moved to Australia & started detecting in Adelaide, SA on August 2015. I keep a Log Book & record how many hours I detect, what I find, where I find it & any history I can find out about anything I find. Great hobby, love It!

Of these only one is in 18Kt ,one is plated and the other two are stainless ....
(now I have recovered in the area around ..... 8 5 with three CTX with Excalibur !!!)

Find of a lifetime !

minelab-ctx-metal-detector-finds-rare-Queen Cyneryth Portrait Penny.jpg

When i wiped away the sandy soil I was speechless I had found a mint Saxon Penny and I mean Mint! I was made up this was the best thing I had ever found but it was going to get better because little did I realise my coin was extremely rare, only a Queen Cyneryth Portrait Penny ! Only nine of these have ever been recorded. We told the land owner who was delighted. The coin will be sold and is expected to bring a considerable amount of money. This will be shared equally between myself and the land owner and I guess I owe my fiend a pint too. Hopefully then I will be able to buy myself a new detector.

1781 Spanish Silver

CTX 3030

So after about 7hrs of hunting and sweating, mainly from detecting farm fields back and forth, back and forth, in almost 90 degree heat with full gear on. Man was this a nice surprise!
It’s my third one this year and like I said, what a welcomed surprise!

Who said Minelab detectors can't find steel coins?

The sensitivity setting will depend on which coil you are using. If you are using the stock 11" coil or the 5 X 10 Coiltek coil a setting of 5 will be good but if like me you want coverage and use the 17" bigfoot coil a setting of 3 is preferred. This way you are only scanning the ground to a depth of 2"to 3" on coin sized objects. A quick wave of the pinpointer over the target will confirm a surface find or some deeper iron object. Over the last three days hunting at a local park i have recovered a total of $112.85 this way. And three silver rings as a sweet kicker. The photos are the clad totals from the three days of hunting.

Animals also collect their treasures!

CTX 3030

September 12, 2015 08:00am

During one of my prospection with my CTX3030, I noticed a competitor who was prospecting in an open pit gold field, collecting yellow mini nuggets and he had full pockets!

A bit later, another gold jewelry & diamonds lover was pinpointing his beak to recover my ring.

Fortunately, the animals do not have a Minelab, otherwise the competition would be fierce.

The day has not been good only for our animal friends, as a medieval coin "Billon" alloy of silver & bronze, made my CTX 3030 chirp).

Hammered coins

CTX 3030

September 11, 2015 08:00am

Recently I obtained a 17 inch coil for my Minelab CTX3030 this proved to be absolutely phenomenal on pasture land. However now the harvest has taken place I took it to all my favourite sites. One that was harrowed nice and flat revealed 5 silver hammered pennies in one day. So back I went and in just over three weeks I have had 24 silver hammered coins from the same field. To say I’m stunned is an understatement I usually get this amount over a year. My hammered score this year as a result has shot to 46 coins. Thank you Minelab once again for providing a brilliant experience through the sheer quality and performance of your products. Best to you all Jules.

During one of the latest releases, made on a beach and a few meters from the shore with my CTX after recovering several recent coins (2Euro, 1 euro, 50 cents, 20cent..ecc ...) and some more coins old (old 200 lire ..) also found a considerable depth in the sand .... I came across in a very strong signal ..... digging with the shovel and drilled once ..è appeared this beautiful ring from man gold 750 (18K and weighing well 21.3gr ..) pictured with a griffin .. (mythological and heraldic animal with the body consists of a head and wings of an eagle, body and tail of a lion and the ears of a horse....

A Civil War Soldiers 1858 U.S. Seated Half Dollar

CTX 3030

seated half.jpg

Here in SW Missouri we have a colorful Civil War history. It is that history that I am interested in finding. My ancestors were on both sides of the argument, and that actually was what got me into searching for Civil War Relics. I have used many detectors over the years but the CTX is finding more for me, especially coins and buttons on edge. I have dug a lot of US Half Dollars but never a Seated Half Dollar. You have to tip your cap to Minelab, the CTX is in a class of its own!
