My First Barber Quarter

metal detector find - indian head cent & barber quarter - usa

Detecting at an old farmhouse, I decided to take a break from digging modern coins and scan the side of the driveway down to the road. I was rewarded first with a 1907 Indian head cent in great condition. About twenty feet further down the drive I picked up on a somewhat choppy but deep signal that just sounded right. I popped the plug and there it was, my first ever Barber quarter...

metal detector find - dimond ring - usa

I hit my usual beach that I had been detecting for many Weeks, I had meet a few of my buddys that day at low tide, the beach was full of tourist and beach goers that day. I had just stepped onto the water line, the same water line that I have hunted many many times, I got a great sound that I like to hear... nice and deep too, about 3 scoops out pops this nice ring. Best ring I've found, jeweler says 9000.00 to 12000.00 dollars...

Hunting the south jersey beaches was a little slow this summer as we hadn't had many storms that brings on good beach hunting due to beach errosion. My Excalibur II has great depth and finding small jewerly t is a plus for this great machine.

Good Hunt With Some Great History

metal detector find - pendant - usa

I'm still learning my E-TRAC. A friend and I decided to hunt an older area in Northern California one Sunday afternoon. I ended up with only three old coins - 1937S wheatie, an 1886 Indian head, and a 1909 "vertical S" wheatie. Not bad.

11th Hour Find, What a Day!

GPX 4800

metal detector find - sword plate - usa

I had the privilege to attend another back to back DIV this month in Culpeper County, VA. The ground here is highly mineralized and most successful relic hunters swing a PI metal detector at DIV. This year was different for me. After watching the GPX series of detectors out-performing the competitors including mine, I was begging my better half for permission to buy a GPX 4800. The answer was no.

metal detector find - gold ring - usa

Got my new Excalibur II March 9th. The first week hunting the New Jersey shore I dug a 13.5 gram platinum wedding band and a 7.6 gram 14 Karat gold band! My machine has almost paid for itself in one week! Best on the market.

Returned After 22 Years

metal detector find - class ring - usa

On Thursday March 22, my wife and I were detecting a hiking trail at a local park. I got a nice 10/12 reading on my Minelab X-TERRA 705. Thinking I had another pull tab, and we found plenty, I still dug it. The machine said 4 inches so I popped a plug about that deep. Right on the bottom of the plug was a beautiful gold class ring. The ring was a from a local high school and was dated 1992. It also had a first name on the face of the ring. I thought, Becky, I'm going to make your day.

A Battlefield Archaeology Survey

metal detectorist - archaeology survey - uk

March 5th/6th 2012

I volunteered, along with my detecting buddy, to take part in a metal detecting survey of a known battle-site. On the first day there were 16 volunteers, the second day there were 10. The aim of the survey was to try and find anything from the 1190's battle, in particular a “Bodkin Arrowhead” which could pierce chain mail or any other type of armour.We were searching in “all metal” and expected to dig all signals, which got very tedious after a while.

I Owe It All To This E-TRAC


March 27, 2012 04:07pm
metal detector find - 1794 liberty cap half penny - usa

I went to a field that I have visited in the past with some excellent success. Though when I do hit this field, it is always very hit or miss. Good targets are slim but usually very old when I do find them. So on a lunch break last week I tried a new spot in the field.

On the edge line of the field were some light woods. In the woods I saw some foundations and oyster shells. I turned on the E-TRAC, noise cancelled and away I went. Three swings in I get a solid 12-41 at 5". I guess my pin pointing was off since I gave the coin a nice hair cut with my digger. But to my surprise I found a 1794 Liberty Cap Half Penny.

Over Five Hundred Coins


March 27, 2012 04:03pm
metal detector find - coins - usa

I have been metal detecting for over thirty years using all different brands of detectors and in June of 2011 I purchased my Minelab E-TRAC. After a few months of in the field training with it I obtained permission to hunt down a now closed down golf course that dates back to the earlu 1900's. With my E-TRAC in hand I started out and in a five month period hunting on weekends I have been able to locate over five hundred coins which sixty seven of them are silver. The E-TRAC can really go get the silver. Thank you Minelab.
