Trip Back In Time

Recommended Posts

Takes from the 80’s magazines of Treasure Hunting and their toys.

A friend gave me the mags but I have some that date back to the 70’s

Maybe some would make a good prize . What do you think?

Man I wish I got into this game sooner...I cant even imagine all the cool stuff I'd have to look at and pass down. Back in the 70's I was a snot nose kid...the 80's I was busy chasing fur,  feather and scales.  I remember my father had a detector in the 80's and one day I saw him near an old home site while I was driving by...stopped to see what he had found. I wish I had the inclination to get a detector and hunt with him. My son has no interest in it either lol....what comes around goes around :smile:

I dug out some treasure mags out today and I got some that go back to 68 and in the early 70’s.

I know I got into detecting just as silver coins was going out. The great thing all the silver that had been lost over the years was out there to be found. To see anyone with a detector was few and far between.

It’s good to hear some still find silver from time to time.

      The ads came from mags dating back to 66. I can say I remember them all. Just maybe you remember some if not all.

      This is what White’s had going for it in 1971 with their line of detectors. I had the 66 TR it being the one to your left. When I got it I just knew I’d never want another. ha

      So most of us have read about how during the war gold mining was not allowed since we needed to concentrate all our mining resources on useful industrial materials that could applied towards the war effort (iron, vanadium, uranium, tungsten, etc).
       
      But after visiting a number of old abandoned mines that ran during the war years I'm left wondering if some of these mines were actually still going after gold and reporting some minor tertiary commodity as their official "product" instead like iron.
       
      Has anyone ever run into the same feeling at certain mines? Is there there any documentation showing that this happened? I'm guessing no since it would have been illegal at the time, but I'm just curious. Were any mines ever caught mining gold when they should have been mining something else? Are there records from whatever dept monitored mines back then to make sure the miners were not going after gold?
