  1. Being a new member I am enjoying reading a lot more about metal detecting and other interesting new and comments from other members here. Just getting back into Metal detecting after being away from it for some years.
  2. Hi Joining from Southern Connecticut, with a just purchased XP ORX. I live near several beaches, but hoping to use the ORX primarilly on camping and hiking trips in in CT and California. I grew up in California, and have camped throughout the United States, including Alaska. This is my second metal detector. In high school I bought a very inexpensive Fisher but left it for my younger brother when I went to college. He made one unusual find: When searching in a field in the California foothills he found a portable Sony Color TV sitting in the grass. Believing it was stolen, he turned
  3. Hi, just purchased my first metal detector yesterday and looking forward to exploring with it. It's a Minelab Gold Monster 1000, since I live in the gold belt of N. Georgia it seemed like a good choice from all the positive reviews of it. I found it on sale for $659 which I thought was a good deal, but enough of that....I tried posting the link for others on this site to get it but was unfortunately flagged and banned for posting the link. Thankfully the ban was lifted and I'm back. Looking forward to get the detector in my hands and learn the ropes! - Dirt Wagon
  4. My name's Kyle, I'm 34 or so frm Colorado springs I started out detecting last September after seeing some YouTube videos. Saved up and bought a harbor freight machine. Fet I hit the jackpot with my first hobby that actually made me money, with all the coins I was finding. Still wasn't finding anything great like I was hoping for, so saved up, and bought a simplex after last Christmas. Turns out the cool finds were to follow buying the simplex. I'll have to post some of my best finds. A little late, but better late than never.
  5. I am a new to detecting starting out with a Minelab Equinox 600, living in Connecticut I will have the chance to work beaches but will usually focus on parks and private sites looking for coins and relics. I have seen already that the Equinox is a fairly advanced machine and will take some time to get used to, so far I have been digging everything and found a few modern coins and a lot of aluminum pop tops, cans and bottle caps. I seem to be picking up a lot from the more experienced users on this forum and appreciate the info and sharing you all do. I will stick with Park 1 , noise balan
  6. Hi Just joined and just got my first real metal detector today. I just got a Garrett Ace Apex and am excited to see what I can uncover with it. Looking for tips and tricks and any other helpful info. David
  7. Amateur Detectorist and rock hound. looking for some help with this find. I think it may be a type of achondrite, possibly a Eucrite. It most resembles Stannern eucrite, found in the Czech Republic. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eucrite Appreciate any informed input. Thanks!
  8. It seems that many here knew my grandfather, and I only hope that I can gain the same respect that he had from man of you. I am new at this so please forgive me if I make a few mistakes along the way. I love fishing, hunting, and most of all family. I have my grandfathers equipment to learn and use and I have a lot to learn about this type of hunting. I went with my grandfather to several countries searching for lost treasures underwater, but never anything like this. I have used sonar, side scan sonar, and my grandfathers underwater detectors with UAV's. Caleb
  9. Hello all, My name is Andy. I got my first detector, a Detectron Go-Fer (which I still have!) in 1974 and was hooked. Currently using a Fisher F75 as my main machine, with a Nokta Simplex+ as a backup. I hunt mainly schools and parks for coins and jewelry. For some reason only just found this forum, but looks like a great design for the site as a whole. Looking forward to good reading and learning!
  10. Hey all, Its been many years since i have ventured the forums as social media has seemed to ghost town alot of our forum sites due to members leaving and using social media platforms, glad i found this one with a lot of old familiar names here, a few of you may remember me? and a My best mate Janet (RIP) lady of the lake from Coolgardie WA and our adventures together in the West Oz goldfields and salt lakes, hoping to catch up with you for a chat and share advice etc.
  11. Well here we go.. I have been metal detecting off and on for about 20 years I got my first detector when I was about 9. I WAS HOOKED. It was a solo thing so I found myself alone while detecting. I went out now and then but school came first THEN CAME THE INTERNET... OMG there were some forums but nobody really went to them so I kind of moved on. Only until a month ago I NEVER posted pics or videos online. THE DAWN OF SOCIAL MEDIA FOR ME I had a Facebook page but it was a so so personal page, I forget how but i came across a video about so
  12. Hi, I've been reading the forum for a while now and enjoying the depth of knowledge and expertise, and the love of finding things. I started detecting about 30 years ago, wrote a few articles for the UK 'Searcher' magazine and then had a break while working and raising a family. Returned about 5 years ago and still love it. I'm particularly not looking for deep finds, the coins I love are tiny and thin hammered silver, or the thin copper 17th Century traders tokens - in my part of England the low value small coins are far more common that the big ones - only a small part of the wealth fro
  13. Hi all, I’m Rob, live in Bombala nsw Australia, have a ml ex terra 705, don’t do a lot of detecting and found even less but love getting out, am a more serious bottle collector, cheers Rob.

  16. My 100th post on Steve’s forum! Thanks a million Steve for all your love and support! Thank you to all other forum members (too many to mention by name, even if I knew it) for helping me celebrate this humongous occasion! ‘Dig deep then dig deeper’ Yours truly, Erik..
  17. Been relic hunting and metal detecting for quite a few years...getting back into it after a hiatus for a few years (sometimes life gets in the way). What I like the most about the hobby is the historical research that goes into finding sites. Besides metal detecting, I also enjoy hunting for, and collecting, Native American artifacts as well as old bottles and marbles. Happy hunting!
  18. Hello everyone, I am a treasure hunter from the Loess Plateau in northern China. I am very happy to come here to meet you. With my current simple experience, I cannot determine the use of a machine suitable for our local soil. I would like to ask all the experts to consult. The pure loess plateau here is less mineralized, the soil layer is pure, and there are very few rocks. I am currently optimistic about the machines, Whites Spectra v3i, AKA SiGNUM MFD, mostly Xp35 and Minelab. I want to buy a deep A good machine is mainly looking for silver coins and copper coins. I hope you can give exce
  19. Hi everyone, my name is Nemanja, I live in Serbia. I've been doing metal detecting for about half a year, I have a Garrett ace 400i, mostly searching on Roman Empire grounds and medieval grounds. This part of Europe is a very rich ancient and medieval terrain. So far I have been finding Roman coins, medieval coins and similar finds from that period. I hope to have a good time and share experiences. So much for now and I apologize for bad English ...
  20. Hi all, I am Eric, I am 42 years old. I have been practicing metal detection for 25 years and gold panning for 18 years. I have 2 children who love to search for coins and gold with me. I live not far from Gaillac, a region known for its wine. I have an equinox 800 and one sluice box caledonan to look for gold in the river.
  21. I am new here on this forum. Name here is Bill, located in north county of S.D. I recently upgraded my equipment from a AT MAX to a Nox800...what a difference! Kinda dumb not spending the extra $ and getting it in the first place...but oh well. If you are out here nearby let's hook up and refill the change coffers! Well....you find the change and I will keep the gold!
  22. How many of you have a non-human prospecting or detecting buddy? Dog, cat, burro, reconnaissance bird... whatever. Post a pic and tell us about them. Here is a chance to brag about our best friends!
  23. Hello all, I am new to prospecting and I plan to do it as a part time due work. am here to learn about it all, I already purchase a minelab gold monster 1000, I hope I made the right choice as regards that. Good to be here.
  24. Hi All New to this forum but an oldie. Still running one of the first two Explorers brought into Canada. I think it was 1999 or 98 They called me Sir Larry and the other Explorer owner was called King Richard, Cause he was so good at metal detecting. Me not so much. But did pretty well with Explorer and the Excalibur 800 Getting back into the hobby and thinking of getting an 800 but have allot of questions
  25. Some of you may know me from the other places online we all kind of frequent. Anyways, I did not know this forum existed!! So hello to all and am glad to be here!!
