Metal Detecting Terminology & Other Tips

As a treasure hunter, it’s a good idea to get familiar with different “detecting terms.” There are so many for this hobby. It’s like a unique language common to all of us treasure hunters. Most of the terminology I had to learn had to do with the types of search coils and specific parts of the machine itself. Since I enjoy finding older coins, relics, and artifacts, it was imperative that I learn about discrimination and the ... Read More

New England Produces Colonial Coppers & More

I took a road trip and headed up to North East Massachusetts to visit my good friend Bernie, who is a customer I met when he came into the shop looking for a metal detector. Bernie received permission to have us hunt on an old farmstead that has history from the revolutionary period. So, with a good potential hunting site in mind he packed up his Read More

Locations are Never Truly Hunted Out

Shawn Burke started off as a customer of mine and has become a great friend to me. I frequently go metal detecting in South East Massachusetts with a group of guys. One of the best things about this is that we all communicate on different locations to go treasure hunting. We all have been pounding a small farm field that was converted into a park. The first silver watch I ever found was ... Read More

Successful Labor Day Treasure Hunt

It was nice having a day off this Labor Day Holiday. I have been in a slump and have not found anything exciting metal detecting in the past three weeks. I made plans to go detecting with my buddy Glenn, who happened to find some silver during our day out in the field.

While driving looking for a spot, I noticed a farm field behind a row of 1800’s homes that are located on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I was trying ... Read More

Turning My Hobby Into My Career

I started metal detecting at the age of 13. Never could I have imagined that after 30+ years I’d like the hobby more than ever, so much that I’ve turned it into my career. Having retired just last year from being in medical sales, I’m now enjoying my very own showroom located on Union St in Rockland, MA. It’s great getting to talk about my hobby, metal detectors and accessories all day to both experienced hobbyists and novices ... Read More

Gold Pocket Watch and Chain Found on Farm

Yesterday was a beautiful summer day in New England. No rain or humidity, just a cool breeze,making for a perfect day for metal detecting. I went detecting with four friends in Southern, MA on a one-hundred acre farm field. With a field so large, everyone seemed to have their own ideas of where the good finds might be located. Most detectorists will start at the top of the hill where you see one or two isolated trees. After ... Read More

Water Detecting In The Summer

Spring is over, the weather is hot and humid, which means summer is here! I am the first to say that I enjoy hunting in parks, farm fields and the woods. However, I think the best approach is to hunt on land in the early fall, when the weather is pleasant. I took a few water detectors out over the past couple of weeks and had a blast! No sweating. I ... Read More
