How To Properly Clean And Protect Coins And Other Finds (Instructions, Result, Photos+)

Most of the coins, relics, and other things we find with our detectors are often in a very poor state of preservation. Sometimes it even is impossible to for example identify coins and the year of issue. The degree of preservation of the find often depends on the conditions in which it was found. For example, coins and buttons found in the sand, as rule, are well-preserved, and items found...

Wehrmacht WW2 Belt Buckles (Description, Variants, Identifying Finds +)

I will continue the subject of the “identifying finds from the Wehrmacht”. In the previous part we wrote about the mess kits of the Wehrmacht during the Second World War, about what types there was and how to determine them here: Wehrmacht Kochgeschirr. If you have not seen or read that article yet- I recommend it. Now I would like to tell more about the belt buckle of the Wehrmacht, and...

Russian Square Coins Of Catherine I (Identifying Finds +)

Maybe you thought that the coins were always round? No, there are coins from different countries of all sorts and different shapes. Take, for example, the clip coins of the Swedish Empire – large squares and rectangles of copper, which can sometimes be found with a metal detector, but something that far from everybody knew: there were also Russian square coins! It turns out that in the Russian Empire, square...

German Wehrmacht Mess Kits “Kochgeschirr” (Identifying Finds, Photos+)

A standard German mess kit, or “Kochgeschirr” as the Germans call it, consisted of two halves; the bottom or the “mess kit”, closed with a lid on top, which could be used as a pan. They were originally made of aluminium. The height of the Kochgeschirr is approximately 14 cm and it can hold about 1.7 liters. It is shaped kind of like a kidney when viewed from above. The...

Teknetics T2 Review and First Impressions (Info, Thoughts, Photos +)

Before I start off this review, I want to shortly have the attention of my Norwegian readers:   Før jeg starter denne anmeldelsen av Teknetics T2 metalldetektor, vil jeg bare kort henvende meg til mine norske lesere. T2 er en ganske undervurdert metalldetektor på det norske markedet. Den er en bestselger over alt, bortsett fra i Norge ettersom den først nylig ble introdusert til det norske markedet. T2 er forløperen til Fisher F75...

Will The Fisher F44 Have Less Depth With A Big Coil Compared To Other Detectors? (Testing, Answer +)

Flipping through some forums about detecting, I came across one very interesting question. Its essence is that the Fisher F44 because of its power in 2 AA batteries, does not preform as well with a large coil as other detectors. Because of this I have 2 questions: How does a metal detector with a large coil lose in depth of detection when the charge in the batteries decreases? Did the engineers...

The New Detector Garrett AT MAX – What Is Known And What Will Happen? (Update, Video News +)

Garrett has recently announced its new product – the metal detector Garrett AT MAX. We have already written about these news here: The new metal detector Garrett AT Max. Many diggers have talked about the similarity of appearance of the new Garrett and the AT Pro- and I too thought that Garrett only slightly updated its popular model Garrett AT Pro, increasing the brightness, updating the sound transmitter to work with...

Locus Maps – Offline Maps For Detecting (Detecting Secrets, Video+)

One time very long ago, i dreamed about having a gadget which i could open and it shows you your location, different labels, and more. Now this is all possible, and available. There are different apps and other software for the smartphone which are good, but as for me, the best program in my practical experience, is the Locus Map PRO for Android. I bought the full version to have 100%...

Steiner Binoculars Wildlife XP 10×26 – Satisfied! (Review, Photos+)

Hello friends! I thought back at the end of last season that it would be fun to get some binoculars to myself (to quietly watch my neighbors (joking)), to watch during detecting what is happening around me. Very often I get worried about my car, I often leave it somewhere in the bushes or a bit in the line, so that people don’t see it and start wondering: “Who is...
