2. do all relic hunters dig such big holes?

4. what were the signals he was bypassing?

That be Craig Denney from the west country,they speak funny and have a weird sense of Humour,but he is a very good detectorist,but he has been experiment in a big way with 'Geophyising' and combining this also with detecting,the Geophyising machine is a cheap setup compared with what is on the market,but it does add another dimension too his hobby.

A few weeks back he was a on a old pasture site and found what is probably a DMV 'desert medieval village' and that would not have normally been found without him doing his 'Geophyising' so although is equipment is very basic but his interpretation of the basic graphs do make sense and you can see features that other wise you would not see,so this does give him some advantage of just using a metal detector.

This is his Geophyising channel

Must admit i am finding this additional subject interesting as its a bolt on piece of equipment that can aid 'relic/artifact/hoard' hunting especially here in the UK.

All you buggers speak funny over there. Depending on what part of the UK, different levels of funniness.:biggrin: Unlike us out in the colonies, apart from the Aussies, we speak the Queen's english :laugh: I like how when quoting measurements from the tape measure it is metric & when he sticks his spike into the ground it is imperial. :rolleyes:

All jesting aside my lovers, thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing.

Best of luck out there

JW :smile:

PS  Sorry just bored. It is snowing outside :ohmy: & I can't/dont want to go to work & can't go for a detect.:rolleyes:

Just when I thought the snow was all over as it had virtually gone, even from the hills. :unsure:

      Definitely copper, and in pretty good shape.  About 5 inches down, showed strong 24 -26 in all sweep directions. Nox 800.  Pretty stoked!

      Was over a lower section that is all fields and first find was the large cent, looks like a drape and of course rough shape being old copper. Musket ball was a pretty cool find and the skeleton key which are my favorites.
      I included my trash so you guys don't thing I'm some sort of elitist and only find good stuff hehe.

      Killed it at the camp. 2 FATTIES , 2 FLYING EAGLE, AND 2 SEATED DIMES.

      Did a quick stint at the park this morning and found a Battle of Verdun coin/medallion dated 1916.  As you can see from the pics I nicked it with the digging tool. 🤮
      I'd like some advice on how to avoid this in the future.  I know part of it is just experience, but there must be some techniques or mechanics that will help to mitigate this.  I've included an image of a better conditioned coin too.  Found a bunch of clad coins along with this.  The Vanquish is a sweet little detector.  Won't replace my Nox 800, but it is really fun to use!  I think I will get the bigger coil for it...

      Thought I’d give a quick update and some photos of the (good) stuff I’ve found so far.  I have a little over 40 hours of metal detecting on the Equinox 800. This is the entirety of my metal detecting experience!  Thanks to everyone on the forum who has helped guide me.
       
      I haven’t included the junk in these photos, but trust me, there is a fair amount!  There seems to be less junk dug the more hours I put in though.
       
      So far I have found:
       
      Currency
      Two clad quarters
      Five silver dimes (A Barber, three Mercs, and a Roosevelt)
      Seven clad dimes
      Seven Nickels (A V!, two Buffalos, and four Jeffersons)
      Fifteen Wheat Pennies (Ranging from 1919 to 1957)
      An old Chinese Coin
       
      Jewelry
      Two enameled pieces (Either broaches or buttons)
      A Catholic medallion depicting Our Lady of Mount Carmel, and The Sacred Heart of Jesus
       
      Tokens
      A token from an old pool hall
       
      Relics
      A creepy cool stamped metal doll head!  Just found this morning at a local park not three blocks from the house! Found the face first, and the back of the head a little deeper.
       
      Most of this was found in parking strips in a Helena, MT neighborhood, Except for the doll head…
       
      Still looking for that $5 gold piece!
