after about 15 min a distinct warning after two coins .... 12:32 .... I moved the sand a bit with your hands and under a few cma reappeared faith in 18Kt gold glittering allla sunlight ... I'm not to tell you the happiness of Mariano ..... and after some photos thanked me I do not know how many and how often I accepted and wanted a small cash contribution for the trouble ... (which views the insistence .... I gladly accepted ..)
thanks Minelab the CTX 3030 is really a big metal !!

CTX 3030

April 17, 2015 08:00am

I kept reassuring myself that this trip was all about education and learning the detector and not to expect any more. New location and a couple of dollars in loose change showed up. Time was ticking away and night shift at work approached. I had just enough time to hit the road and visit some old convict areas i had read about. Finally arriving i jumped out of the car, hit the bush track keen to find a button at least! Finally heard a very different tone come from the CTX and then couldn’t get it back! I started to walk off in frustration but decided to stick with it. After 15mins i heard it again and this time got the Minelab Pro Pointer onto it. Well, under about 2 inches of dirt up against a small shrub i extracted this little ripper from 1858. Well i didn't know if i should dance, jump, sing all shout with joy! First trip out and just when i was ready to call it a day it felt like i hit the jackpot with this small historical find.

Ancient Gold Stater

minelab ctx-3030 finds gold stater coin in UK.jpg

My metal detector is the Minelab CTX 3030 and I cannot praise this machine enough. I have had many wonderful finds. I previously owned a Minelab Safari which also did the job very well.
I have often wandered along daydreaming about finding my first gold coin. If I was ever to find one I guessed it would be a Sovereign as these seem to appear often on the various forums. I never thought I would find something as amazing as this. When I saw it in the soil my heart stopped! A Gallo Belgic Type A Gold Stater 7.5g. These pictures were taken when I found it. To find this coin in this condition is incredible. Thanks to my Minelab CTX 3030.

minelab detector ctx finds hammer gold.jpg

Determined to bag myself a roman coin I carried on, must have only been 5 mins and got another signal, what was about to happen was far from what I was expecting "my god" I shouted to Keiron, "you got a roman" he replied and when I told him I've just dug a gold hammered up his reply was "Yeh Yeh what you found really" I ran over to him holding this hammered personally I don't know what was shining more the coin or my teeth behind the world's biggest grin.
We marked the area off and detected every inch hoping to find a scattered hoard of gold hammereds.
The rest of the day was spent showing my find off and honestly not much more detecting was done after that. Well I drove home later that day still with that big grin on my face and probably so did the farmer.

minelab ctx detector finds spanish reale coin.jpg

I picked up in my hand, a completely encapsulated coin with only the shiny edges exposed. I knew from the location and the items previously found at the location it was going to be old. So 1st thing, I made sure not to rub it at all. I poured some water from my water bottle over the coin in my hand to reveal this beautiful 1773 Spanish One Real.

Just ten minutes later I dug a King George I Half Cent!

Unexpected silver

CTX 3030

March 24, 2015 09:00am

I took the plug out and checked the resulting hole with the pinpointer, it was still in there, loosening the soil gently, as hammered have come from this permission regularly, out dropped a blackened disc. I thought initially it was another hammered coin but on closer inspection it turned out to be a Roman Silver Siliqua which are normally very heavily clipped, this however is in very good condition with no major signs of clipping. It came totally out of the Blue as no one expected any Roman coins to come from this site. It put a great day out up to a tremendous day out.

Yesterday I found this Roman brooch with my Minelab CTX3030 glass paste / enamel.
It is a lion . I am very happy with it. A few days ago I found a Roman bronze dromedary. In the same area as the brooch.

Minelab detector finds coins.jpg

On March 13th I had the opportunity to take a new person to the area out detecting. He is has been using a Garret AT Pro for 2yrs and as yet had never found silver. He did manage to get his first ever silver coin that day but needless to say the CTX was singing a very different story. While he only managed one silver coin, a 1952 Canadian dime. I pulled 9 silver coins, 2 silver rings, 1 gold ring and a 1901 US $5 gold coin that has been made into a love token. What a wonderful day to be swinging the CTX. As yet the Chinese characters have not been fully deciphered but that will come.

First silver for 2015

CTX 3030

March 13, 2015 11:00am

At long last the snow and ice cleared away and off I went on my first hunt for the year. Within 40 minutes of detecting I hit a strong 12-46 at 7" and there in the hole was a 1745 8 reale. After some patient cleaning you can see the end result, and some have said, " not a bad start to the year"
