Restoring German Helmets With Wax! (Diggers Tips, Photos+)

I recently acquired a very fine piece, an original German M42 Stahlhelm. Now this helmet was in a good condition with the original paint and everything, but I had one question: was there anything I could do to make it look better and add some value to it without destroying it in any way? And does it work for a “dug” German helmet? The answer is: yes! As some of...

Detecting WW2 Location – Mysterious Dog-Tag Found! (Diggers Story, Photos+)

I and my friend recently sat around and had some spare time and decided, therefore, to go detecting. Although the weather forecast wasn’t very promising with lots of rain and the temperatures threatening to be below zero degrees, we still decided to defy the northern “winter” weather. The last couple of winters here up north have been very unpredictable; one day there can be half a meter of snow, and...

Today’s detecting location will be a field. Until the mid-30s there was a rather large village on it.

Finishing The Detecting Season of 2018 (Happy New Year!)

There was not much snow, but the cold outside has been standing still for a long time, more than three weeks. The guys who went detecting to the fields quite recently said...

The Best Bag For Beach Detecting – A Surprise From Kellyco!

There are simple and logical solutions that, with their beauty, simplify the life for a detectorist. Especially if you are digging on the beach, you are faced with the fact that if you start putting the finds in your pocket or a regular bag for finds, then it all will be clogged with sand and then you have to spend the extra minutes shaking and cleaning your pockets/bags. I usually...
