An Ordinary Day Of WW2 Detecting (Diggers Story, Photos+)

Have you ever dreamed about digging WW2, but have never had the opportunity to do so? Well I have, and my dream became reality. I live in a place where there never were any battles or much of action, so I do not have the opportunity to dig much WW2 relics where I live, but I have always been wanting to do so. And one day, one of my friends...

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...

Digging The Forest With The Fisher F44 (Diggers Story, Photos+)

I rarely make full reports about detecting, because I often tell about an interesting find. But today it will be a report about what I liked with my result. On a day off, four of us left in the morning to one promising forest. That area was interesting because there they have found a lot of different objects of the Cossack times. The forest I was planning to detect in,...

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...

Finding Silver With The Fisher F75! (Diggers story, Photos+)

The Fisher F75 is an amazing piece of technology, and truly my favorite detector. It is light, works perfect and it will do the job?. I have had very many good finds with it, but the most recent one is one of my favorites: Today, me and my friend decided to go out detecting, because there was such a nice weather, probably the first summer day here in Norway. We...

Rare Crucifixes From The 14-16 Centuries (Identifying Finds +)

When digging for relics, the finds are not only coins, but also different relics and personal items, like buttons and crucifixes worn around the neck. It seems that people used to love to fight, have a good party, or simply maybe the rope just broke and the crucifix fell off. In any case, good finds in form of rare crosses can be found: Initially, we see crosses with the image of the Savior...

Digging In Germany With The Ace 150! (Amazing Finds, Coins, War Relics, Photos+)

I was recently on a trip to Germany, and long story short, I didn’t bring my Fisher F75. But fortunately, my friend had a detector. It wasn’t quite the F75, it was an ACE 150 with the standard coil. “At least it is better than nothing”, I thought. And I was certainly right. So, after arriving to Germany, me and my friend Marco Schmitt, who I was visiting, went out...

Bronze sword hilt sold for $4342 (Expensive Finds, Photos+)

  If there would be a sword on that handle, then the detectorist who found it would be bathing in gold. But there is no blade, the iron has already long ago rusted away to piecees, so there was only the bronze handle left. See the photos. This sword dates back to the Kievan Rus. An amazing find: A bronze sword hilt. The handle has some nice carvings. What is especially...

Scabbard Chape From The Kievan Rus! (Find, Photos+)

The snow just recently got off the ground, which already was there for three months, while I wanted to go out with my Fisher F44 detector. At that time, it was a lot of strong winds in the area, thereby drying the earth. So, the next weekend I went detecting in the fields, not being afraid of the mud. My chosen field was already dry enough to walk on it...

Gold Spear Found On Football Field (Unusual Find, Photos +)

And just by reading the headline we get three questions… There used to be golden spears? Why was someone detecting on a football field? And why did ordinary workers give their finds to the authorities? Let’s see how the golden spear, with a presumptive age of 3000 years.     Scotland, Carnoustie. Some local workers were preparing a field for building a new football field, and found unique artefacts – a...
