Throughout all this cold here in Massachusetts, I managed to get more great detecting products to try out. This time, it’s the new Garrett Z-Lynk Wireless Headphone System. There’s been so much buzz about this product for a while now. It has to do with how this allows you to no longer be tied to your metal detector wires while using your headphones. We all... Read More

Quarter Eagle 1852 Liberty Head

My customers keep bringing in these amazing finds each week to the store.The type of coin that turns everyone’s head is a gold one. My pal Glenn went out detecting in an apple orchard farm from the early 1800’s in Central Massachusetts. During that hunt, he hit his bucket list coin! Now if you remember, I have done two other blogs on Glen and said that... 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 compass. The search coil sends a... 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 Minelab... 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... Read More

Weekend Treasure Hunt

This past weekend I went back to the old spot where I found my 1819 large cent from the previous Saturday. Again, small wooded area across from an old cemetery. I don’t like getting to close to the cemetery because people might think you’re digging 6 feet for a body (LOL!). The area that I have been metal detecting at has been hit pretty hard. So, I...
