76.2 mm Regimental Gun M1927 Found In Estonia (Updated, Photos+)

The 2018 detecting season has not only begun for the diggers of coins in the fields because war-relic hunters have also started. This year, the members of the Otsing Club (“detecting club”) found a 76.2-mm regimental gun, the 1927 model, in the swamps of Narva. A total of 18,000 such guns were produced, of which only a small number have survived to this day. It’s good that in Estonia, the...

Excavation Of An Old Inn – The First Day And The First Finds! (Photos+)

Well, friends! Summer is the best time for forest excavations because the fields are all sown or not yet cut, so there is nothing left but to go on an excavation trip. And the places where it’s best to go for excavations are places where people used to live, and there are quite a lot of such places. In our case, this place turned out to be among the trees...

How An Iron Cross Suddenly Became A Knight’s Cross (Just How Important It Is To Clean And Identify A Find Before Selling It)

Recently, at one famous Russian WW2 forum, there were auctions as always, on the one hand, seemingly quite ordinary – well, a ground dug Iron Cross, and even in the corresponding condition, but on the other hand – a very instructive example of why it is important to clean and identify the finds before selling them. And all would be well, but when the seller decided to find out what...

The Depth Detector Golden Mask Deep Hunter PRO 3 – Our Review! (Digging War Relics+)

I have never before dug with a deep metal detector, and I have not seen any friends/fellow detectorists doing it either. Therefore, I had little knowledge on this subject, and even then – all purely theoretical. The choice was short-lived, in principle, because I wanted to take a new model that would be also interesting to review and to look at the latest achievements of engineering is also interesting. So...

Ear Cleaning Pendant, A Wonderful Relic! (Identifying Finds, Photos, Be Careful!+)

First, a non-trivial question: how do you clean your ears? Cotton swabs, most likely, and you probably never in your life realized that your ears can be cleaned with something else. But there is one nuance! It turns out in the old days our ancestors used a special object, which is called “ear cleaning pendant”. It’s hard to say when this subject first appeared, probably when one of the Hominidae...

Illegal Diggers Plundering Roman Towns In England (Illegal Detecting, News+)

Greetings fellow detectorists! Generally, when speaking about detecting, there are two kinds of people: The law-abiding “white diggers” and the “black diggers”, who don’t care about most of the rules and do their detecting at night. There is no clear “border” between the legal and illegal diggers because there are some people (especially news sites) who present almost all detectorists as “black diggers” and scare most people into thinking that...

Breaking The Record For My Oldest Coin Ever Two Times In One Day! (Digger’s Story, Photos+)

Detecting with a metal detector is an interesting hobby, but also very different from country to country, it turns out. In the place where I live, there isn’t too much interesting history and the people “back in the days” were very poor. Because of this, people obviously didn’t have too many coins to lose (and for me to find), and we detectorists even have a joke among us, that coins were...
