First experience with electrolysis (cleaning silver)

At first I was skeptical to electrolysis. I consider this as a”barbaric” method of cleaning. However, I decided to try it. As a test subject i chose the 15 kopeks silver coin 15 from 1926, with a silver purity of 500. The condition of this coin was no good- it was more dead than alive. There was black tarnish on it, which had previously tried to remove with a little citric acid. There was also...

Hoard of Polish coins from the 17th century! (+ photos)

What an amazing treasure! A group of diggers had the pleasure of digging out a hoard of Polish coins, a whole treasure in the middle of a field. Incredibly lucky diggers – they found all together about a hundred coins, mainly silver ones. Although they also found a gold coin, though only one. Imagine how amazing it must have felt to find this hoard! Here are some more pictures of the find 😉  (Note: click on the photos...

The first trip with the Fisher F75 (+photos)

A couple of weeks ago we had a rise in temperature, and it turned out to be a great time! I had no trouble finding a place to go detecting, so i went with a friend to a field near an ancient village. This place never ceases to please us with the amazing finds. It is always nice to know that the place ensures interesting signals before going there. As for the settings, i turned...

What can be found on a European beach with a detector? (Fisher F44 with the Nel Tornado)

Usually, detectorists are divided into several categories – we have the “war-diggers” which digs old battlefields, there are “historians” who digs relics and coins, and there are “beach-detectorists”, who, like to listen to the sound of the waves and answer questions from curious tourists. Some people are a mix between these categories, but they all tilt more to one category. A friend has sent me photos from the summer as he...

Field detecting with the Garrett ACE 300i and the Nel Attack coil

Every day, the temperature is slowly creeping down, and the winter is getting closer. In the forest, a thick layer of leaves has covered the ground, and in the fields, farmers have already harvested their crop. As long as the ground is not covered by ice, i decided to go out detecting. This time i decided not to go too far, but rather to a nearby field. The farmer plowed...

Medieval gold coin! (photos +)

Noble – this is the name of the first mass-produced English gold coin. This huge coin contains over 90% gold!? The medieval system counted one noble to be just as much worth as six shillings and eight pence or 80 pence, or 1/3 pound. This magnificent coin appeared in the 1344-1346, the years of the reign of King Edward III and later kings used this coin for over a hundred years. The inscriptions on the early...

Looking for a new place for coins hunting with ACE 400i (photos+)

I decided to spend my Sunday morning looking for a new place for coin hunting. According to this idea I went through the really old alleys near the former estate. Now this place looking abandoned. It’s golden time gone away many years ago, but there were some visitors walking around and watching me with an interest while I was jumping from side to side over the road waving my ACE...

The Canals of St. Petersburg and its treasures (photos of finds+)

It has been proven multiple times that there is possible to find incredible treasures in the most sophisticated places. Moreover, the more sophisticated the place is, the more likely you are to be there first. While most of the mainstream detectorists go digging at fields and forests, some people manage to dig in the heart of the city. An example of this – looking for teasures in St. Petersburg’s canals. The...

And here we have a story of an outstanding detecting hour i must say! And...

Diggin’ coins with Nokta Fors Relic using big coil (+photos)

Here is my report from the last weekend being digging on a farmfield using Nokta Fors Relic detector. So far I decided to improve it a little bit and added big DD coil. This is 39.5×34 cm (15.5″x13″) searching coil produced by Nokta as well. First of all I managed to play around with DEP (Deep) mode and high sensitivity level (set at 85) on a open hayfield near the...
