1721 King Philip V One Reale Find

This past weekend I went metal detecting at a small field area next to the North River. Each time I go out to this place it keeps producing some great finds. Last weekend, there were two King George coppers and a large cent! These three coins were worn badly, but still are exciting to find. Again, this is the same hunting area that I mentioned in my last blog which featured the 1785 One Reale find. So, this past Saturday we went again ... Read More

Hunting the History of the North River

I went metal detecting with my good friend Jeff this past Sunday. The main topic is always the same: “Where are we going?” I talk to customers, friends, and people from detecting clubs. The most important discussion that we all have is the location of the hunt. Everybody who has been treasure hunting always pursues the fresh undetected areas. I am looking for the old stuff, so that’s why I run into slumps not finding anything. ... Read More

Thoughts On Preserving History

This July 4th made me do some more reflecting on a topic that I find close to my heart- “history”. Metal detecting and history have a lot in common. When I find objects in the ground, that item has already been through a story of its own and has a message to tell for the rest of us. History is part of who we are in this detecting hobby and it’s the one of the very essences of being human. We learn from it, we make it, ... Read More

Answers for My Popular Stock Search Coils

I’ve received so many comments on a few of the popular search coils in my shop. I always tell people that having the right search coil can make a huge difference in how you hunt and what you are able to find. Recently, I’ve seen more of this in the field watching others hunt. A search coil, to break it down, is like your ... Read More

19th Century Three Cent Pieces

It’s been a good but crazy week after the Memorial Day holiday. I’m always happy to have so many great people come in the shop. They tell me their stories of recent finds, where they found things, which metal detector they were using, etc. I am usually most interested in the details of what the digital readings are on their display and the sound the detector made when they decided it was a good target to extract. I had the Read More

Toy Guns from the Past

Over the past several years that I’ve been metal detecting, I have come across a lot of toy guns. The gun I found last year seems to be in better condition than any of the other ones I have located.Often times, the guns break apart when removing them from the soil. I think a major factor is the soil type and the metal the gun is made from. Frequently, I have found them at private residences and a couple in farm fields and ... Read More

Amazing WWI Ring Found

On Mother’s Day weekend I had an hour to go out for a quick hunt. Everybody was tied up, so I went by myself. I decided to go to a spot where I found 2 colonial coppers a few weeks ago. The area was a small patch of woods behind a few old houses. I was using the Garrett AT Pro again for this hunt. I found a nice WWII ... Read More
