Christmas comes early this year, thanks to Excalibur II!

Excalibur II

metal-detector-finds-gold-rings-diamond.jpg

his year I haven't been able to get out very often between work and some health problems. So I spent my time doing research on places to detect, which lead me to a little out of the way beach only a couple of hours drive from my home that looked promising. I was working the low tide area late at night and had been detecting for 4hrs, finding a few coins, junk jewelry, pull tabs and fishing sinkers. I was getting tired but I knew the sinkers were a good sign. I heard a very faint signal, after numerous attempts with my scoop in waist deep water I was rewarded with the glint of gold in the scoop. I plucked out a nice Man's ring gold and diamond, 18K weighing 11.3 grams with a nice diamond in the center 3 small diamonds on each side. I was instantly refreshed and continued my search for another 15 minutes, when I heard another faint signal. Again after several attempts with my scoop in waist deep water, my headlamp caught the flash of gold in the scoop and there was another Man's gold & diamond ring, again a nice diamond in the center 10 small diamond chips on each side 18K and 9.1 grams. I couldn't believe that I found not one but two Men's Gold and Diamond Rings. I continued working area for another hour until I was worn out. I found a small copper ring and almost 10 dollars in change for my efforts. There is nothing like that feeling when you see a gold ring at the bottom of your scoop especially when you are alone on secluded beach late night!

Everyday I'm Shuffling

Excalibur II

metal-detector-finds-gold-chain.jpg

In my 2yrs of shuffling (detecting) I've learn lots of things such as where would the items be... shuffle where no one dares, such as muddy areas. Quitting my job to do full time a detectorist is no joke, income would be unstable as sometimes you gets nothing except for coins to survive. Study the place that you shuffle from back to the old days. I've met all kinds of things such as something swimming in between your leg at night, crab biting your boots, big fish jumping beside you. Worst of all places that you know someone is walking beside you but there's nobody.

Excalibur II finds Plastic Hoard on 1st trip to the beach

Excalibur II

metal-detector-finds-coin_purse_excalibur.jpg

After a few decades of off and on metal detecting (cheap machines), and seriously in the last few years (Minelab Safari), I got the itch to water hunt. So naturally I got an Excalibur II and ran it thru its paces a few times before heading for the nearest beach (8 hours away) in South Carolina. While hunting at low tide one morning about 50 yards from shore in 4' of water, I got a strong signal (disc = 1, sensitivity = 5-6, thresh = barely audible, volume = max) and proceeded to dig and dig and dig until I finally recovered a nylon purse stuffed absolutely full of credit/gift/rewards /etc cards at a depth of over a foot. Luckily the owner also had 2 house keys in the purse or I would have passed right over this plastic treasure trove! The downside of this find was that I didn’t have any way of carrying my the bulky thing around and had to quit detecting for the morning.

Playa Mujeres-Cancun, Mexico (Vacation)

Excalibur II

Metal detecting finds - gold ring

I debated taking a metal detector on my vacation to Playa Mujeres Cancun Mexico, but opted to pack up the Excalibur II and see if it could learn to speak Spanish.

As relaxation kept me pre-occupied, I waited until the last day of my vacation to break out the Excalibur II. I spent a little less than 4 hours playing around in about 3 foot of clear water. The bottom was surprising clean, and most finds were of interest.

Excalibur II Finds Silver Cache

Excalibur II

Metal detecting finds - silver

In early August 2013 I was contacted by an elderly couple asking for my help. It seems that 30 years ago they had buried a cache of silver bars on their farm but for the last several years, as memories fade, they were unable to find the exact location of their treasure. They had spent many months digging in the most probable area and had even been helped by a friend with a metal detector.

Wedding Band Recovery

Excalibur II

Metal detector finds ring

Was out on the beach with the family today. I brought the Excalibur II along since low tide was around 12:30. Did some hunting in the water and the wet sand with very little results. So packed up the family a little while later and loaded up the truck to head back home.

As I was pulling out, my phone rang and it was a buddy of mine who happens to be a police officer in the town where I work. He asked if I was around and I said sure am, what's up? He was out with a couple and family that had lost two white gold / diamond wedding bands.

Cherished ring returned

Excalibur II

Metal detector finds - ring

One of the best moments for a metal detectorist is when he is able to return a lost wedding band to the owner. A week ago a young family ambushed me as I was coming off Skaket Beach on Cape Cod, MA. My Excalibur II was on my shoulder after having done its work. I had just found a nice large sterling necklace and was calling it quits for the night. The wife explained that she had lost her wedding band there the evening before.

Hooked for life

Excalibur II

Metal detector finds - gold ring

It was my 4th hunt with my Excalibur II in waist deep salt water in a very busy beach in Cyprus when I heard this exclusive deep sound of the Excalibur II which suggested that something interesting was down there.

I used my Sunspot 720 stealth scoop and while the fine sand was leaving the scoop, I saw this shiny yellow gold ring. it's an 18 karat 7.5 grams gold ring!!! This experience hooked me in the Minelab detectors for life!

Find of a lifetime

Excalibur II

Metal detecting finds - platinum and diamond ring

My wife and I went detecting at a favorite beach of ours. I was detecting where the rocks are that go out into the water, when I got a solid signal. About 10 inches down was a large man's ring.

Well it turned out to be a Platinum and Diamond ring. It has 11 Diamonds at .13 carats each. The ring weighs a whopping 16.5 grams. My appraisal just came in while I was typing this, it's worth a whopping $ 5,400.00. Love my Excalibur II.

Gold at last

Excalibur II

Metal detecting finds - 1957 gold class ring

I was behind a friend's garage and was with my Minelab Excalibur II. On my third dig of the day, I saw a gold band. I thought it was a wedding ring, but it was actually a heavy 1957 high school class ring from Maryland.

It was crazy! It weighed 11.75 grams and was worth over $250. The initials R.S.C. were on the ring, and the person who lived near the barn had the same initials and went to that high school. He didn't give me anything, but he sure was happy to get it back.

That was my first major find with my Minelab Excalibur II.

My Excalibur II

Excalibur II

Metal detecting finds - rings

I have been a Whites kind of guy for the past 8 years, using the DFX to search the beaches here on Maui. But not until February 2011, did I go (finally) into the water. The beaches here on Maui are slowly being well searched by other MD'ers, so the pickings here are ever so slowly being a lot less than before. So I decided to go into the water to better the chances. Most MD'ers here go at night, but I don't like doing that since there is an increase in car break ins. So I go strictly during the day.

I actually found this ring with the rainbow directly overhead - A beautiful setting for a beautiful ring!

A one in a million find

Excalibur II

Metal detecting finds - Lewes Beach artifact

This story begins in 2011 when I started metal detecting the beach in Lewes, Delaware.

Lewes Beach is the site of an Army Corps of Engineers beach replenishment project that took place in the fall of 2004. During the project, the dredge went directly through a shipwreck off the inlet and deposited artifacts of all types on the beach. Pottery, window glass, jettons (which are small German counting coins), and various brass items were among the mix of treasure. The beach was immediately closed for a couple of months.

A big hug for my Minelab

Excalibur II

Class ring returned to owner

I have always been interested in metal detecting. I was in the Army for 22 yrs and during that time I fooled around with an old coin master.

After I retired, I was diagnosed with COPD and found it difficult to walk around in hot weather. I bought a Minelab Excalibur II so that I could go into the water, it was easier for me and good exercise.

Recently, I was hunting at a New Hampshire beach with my Excalibur II, and 5 minutes in I got my first signal which turned out to be an encrusted Mercury dime. I thought to myself this is going to be a good day. I just put it in my pouch and kept on swinging. At that point I decided to head into the water. I looked down and saw a piece of aluminum trash, I scooped it up and put it in my trash pouch like any good detectorist would.

Paid for My Detector

E-TRAC

metal detector find - 23k gold thai necklace - germany

Last thing I said to my wife before leaving to hunt was (half-joking), “I’d just like to find enough to pay for my detector.” Little did I know I was about to do just that!

Flashback to the previous week. We went to our favorite park to enjoy some ice cream and to our surprise we found the park lake drained. There was only a small stream of water running through the center of a now dry lakebed. My wife, a lifelong resident of the area, remarked that she could not remember ever having seen the lake empty. Of course, my attention was immediately drawn to the freshly exposed beach area…I couldn’t stop thinking that there HAS to be something in all that sand and I wanted to be the one to find it.

Finds with Excalibur II in South of Finistère

Excalibur II

metal detector find - rings and coins - france

English Translation from French

As a beachcombing enthusiast for years and after cleaning all the beaches around my home with many types of detectors, I had the good idea to buy a Minelab Excalibur II in order to avoid my detector always getting “sunk” by a wave or a heavy shower.

But I didn’t expect that this waterproof metal detector would have such amazing performance! Not only did I find with it several rings in wet sand, but I have also been amazed to see its performance on dry sand.

I had no idea that I would be using it to find treasures that had been lost within my family nearly forty years before.

Finding the Deep, Heavy Rings!

Excalibur II

Metal Detector Finds - 14K Gold Ring - USA

I am new to Minelab but no stranger to metal detecting, having used other brands for more than 10 years. Earlier this year I decided to try beach detecting due to the high cost of gold and invested in a Minelab Excalibur II.

At first I found it frustrating to use, having no display telling me what I was finding and at what depth. Gradually, as time went on and with the help of more experienced Minelab users, I began to understand the different tones and sounds of the Excalibur II. At the same time, I began digging better quality targets more often.

Metal Detector Finds - 14Ct Charm

This past Memorial weekend I was up in Northern Michigan at my buddys cabin and he took me to a little beach around 7 miles away to do some water hunting with my Excailbur II. This is a man made lake and I quickly learned it wasn't going to be easy to hunt because of the clay bottom. Bringing up every scoop was a workout in itself, and then trying to get it to sift was another. The water was still only around 65 degrees so I was wearing my waders.

Metal Detector Finds - 18K Gold And Diamond Ring

My work involves playing music on a cruise ship. I have been to over 70 ports in over 30 countries. My detectors come along with me on my gigs which are usually 4 months long.

One of my best finds is this 18K gold ring with over 50 small diamonds and a 1 carat diamond on top. It was found on a private beach in the Caribbean. The ring was appraised at $12,700 (my most valuable find to date). The owners of the ring could not be located. What a great hobby!!!

Metal Detector Finds - Coins & Rings

Dear Minelab,

I recently purchased an Excalibur II and wanted to share with you a couple of my first finds with it. This is my third water machine and by far the best. I have only had the Excalibur II for a few weeks and have had some incredible luck. I got down to the beach after the holiday weekend and got not one but two 14k rings. The depth of this machine truly amazes me, I really like the fact that the Excalibur II ignores iron but will sound off on the good stuff right next to it. I think its going to be a great year!

In Minelab I Trust

Excalibur II

Metal Detector Finds - Coins & Jewellery

I would like to thank Minelab for building a great metal detector. I have used White's for many years and your Excalibur II has surpassed all my expectations. It has great sensitivity and penetration enabling me to find what other detectors miss.

The attached photos are of my recent findings from three hunts on our local beaches. I have found my most successful hunts to be after a storm when the high tide brings these treasures onto the beaches. I went directly behind other hunters using other detectors and have found what they passed over.

Metal Detecting Pays Off at US$36,000/Hr

Excalibur II

Metal Detectorist

On the last day of my recent Caribbean water-detecting trip, I had a couple of nice finds. I used my trusty Minelab Excalibur II with a 10" Coil the entire trip. The Caribbean water was so warm I could hunt all day without my wet suit. I was only hunting maybe 15 minutes into my final day when I hit my first find of that day. I found a chunky 14ct yellow and white gold “Rolex Ring” in the mild surf. It weighed in at 1/3 of an ounce and had 17 diamond accent stones in circle in the middle. It is called a Rolex Ring because it resembles a Rolex Watch. At size 12 it was also perfect for me to wear as a pinky ring.

The Excalibur II Has Me Hooked!

Excalibur II

Metal Detector Finds - Rings & Coin

I bought my Excalibur II in February 2009. This is my first water machine and my first year water hunting, so yes I am a rookie at it, but I am hooked. 

I went to the beach with my wife and kids today and right away I started digging coins right off the bat with the Excalibur II. After scooping up a dollar or so I moved to deeper water. I got a nice tone and dug it. It was my first gold ring, I was pumped and I called my wife over to show it to her, she was pumped too. I asked her to hold on to it.

Excalibur II Pays for Itself!

Excalibur II

Metal Detector Finds - Jewellery

Just a quick update on the new Excalibur II which I purchased on 3 April 2009. In short, the upgrade has been paid for in 3 weeks from the date I received the detector. 

I have found 12 gold rings with the Excalibur II. The total weight found is 41 grams of 9kt and 20 grams of 18kt. With the current scrap gold price at ZAR 95 per gram of 9kt, that comes to ZAR 7,695. The upgrade from the Excalibur to the Excalibur II cost ZAR 5,700 so already I have made a profit of ZAR 2,000 just on the gold found!!
