Minelab CTX 3030 finds Viking coin

March 22, 2013 04:00pm

Last year I found a coin that has turned out to be the best coin I've ever found. I was searching a river in Buckinghamshire England; working an area I'd previously searched every summer for 10 years. Finds had become very sparse, but in May 2012 I returned with my new CTX 3030 and I immediately saw “the site come to life!”

I started to work the inside bend of a bank that had previously produced several large first century Roman coins to a Minelab Excalibur 800. The first target of note was a lovely tin coin of James II, which has a copper plug fig1. This was in remarkable condition, and the date (1685) can still be read on the outside edge of the coin. I was so pleased to find this coin, they are rarely found in this condition.

Finding small gold jewelry on the beach with the Minelab CTX 3030

I can boldly say the CTX 3030 is the most sensitive metal detector I have ever used for gold jewelry hunting on the beach and this awesome metal detector has changed my approach to finding smaller items of gold jewelry on the beach.

Maximizing your area - Part 2

Even if you are not the talking type, there are so many other ways to get to the goodies. One is slower, but can really be helpful, and that is the library. Looking at old newspapers can tell of stories forgotten only a few weeks after they were written. Most small town papers kept all of the local stories worthy to research on the front page, with the rest of the paper open to National news or advertisements.
