  1. A good friend of mine who has trouble getting around these days after a bad car accident showed me a bunch of Cellar holes that he knows of. He reminded me of some of the important things that are overlooked or taken for granted, like the simple Act of being able to walk through the woods in search of a Cellar hole. Luckily there were many right next to the road and even brought some hot dogs and buns which we cooked on a fire next to the old home site.

    Finally Treated Myself To A Decent Detecting Belt

    Thanks Andy it sure has made it easier to find everything I need and have it when I need it. Those oil soaked paper towels helped me this year to keep a pewter button a a few coppers from drying out and disintegrating.

    Found My 3rd Half Dollar Ever Today!

    Thanks a bunch Alluminati. I also agree with the freedom of detecting. With hunting and fishing there's a lot more gear involved it seems and clean up both of gear and fish and game if you bring home some for the table. With metal detecting I can just grab my detector shovel in my tool belt and be on my way. I do wish old coins were still being restocked or they were growing and multiplying like trout and deer LOL
  7. Coins sure are nice to find but so are balls and buttons.

    Why Do Coin Dealers And Jewelers....?

    Thanks for sharing the interesting info. I like the policy of mining companies having to purchase bonds for the cleanup. I just did some research and found that companies are required in the U.S as well to buy bonds or to pay a percentage of the cost of clean up, up front. Quebec require 70% of the cost of cleanup, up front.

    My Kit + Finds So Far - Around 6 Weeks Use

    Awesome finds Andy! I post alot as well and have fun doing it, keep it up and enjoy!
  13. 😂 I hadn't looked at it that way Tom that's awesome thanks
  14. For the longest time since I purchased my first metal detector in 1997 I've been either using my pockets or those cheap pouches that come when you buy a new metal detector. Today I bought a couple $10 pouches and used my wading belt for fly fishing. A tool belt will probably work just as good but I have my tool belt full of all the stuff that I need and I didn't feel like emptying them out 🙂 I also bought a dandelion tool to help me dig around some of those deep targets and not ruin them. I also put a folding saw on order with a 7-inch blade because sometimes you run into a root. It is tough when you know it's a really good find and can't get to it or worse yet, put a gash in an 1875 IH that was in mint shape. Believe it or not I've had to walk away not having the proper tools and not made it back. I also put some extra dry paper towels in a plastic bag and paper towels soaked with vegetable oil in another bag the preserve relics. I have an old retainer case for good finds and also a couple Airborne containers for coins. You can separate the coins with bits of paper towel if you want. It would be cool to see what other people use for their detecting tools. I think I'm only missing a spray bottle of distilled water. Feel free to post pics or share what works for you.

    First Gold With 6" Equinox Coil

    Great finds. Any gold bits are amazing. I live in NY and any gold nuggets or bits are more of a legend than reality. Glad that new coil is treating you right and I think I might save up for one. I've been putting all my clad in a jar and some paper if I have extra on pay day.
