Museum Idiotism and How the Visitors Are Being Confused! (Photos+)

I propose to talk on such a sensitive topic as “errors” in information in museum stands. After all, state museums are a source of serious information. People write scientific works, relying on museum exhibits and specialized literature in the field of history and archeology. It’s one thing if it’s just typos or spelling errors on information stands in museums. Which also, of course, surprises, but not so much that it...

Transferring Finds To The Museums, How Does This Happen? (Info, Interesting!)

Since the topic is quite relevant, it was decided to write a separate post on this issue. It should immediately be noted that I do not agitate anyone to hand over their finds to museums. I will only describe the process of transferring the objects. Annually on October 7th, in some museums, there is a special holiday – the Day of the donor. A donor is a person who donates...

Detecting WW2 spot with Teknetics Patriot (Digger’s Digest!)

He guys! Just couple of days ago I’ve been out detecting a WW2 spot with new Teknetics Patriot metal detector. That was a great day and I had a lot of fun and some good finds also! Check out this latest video story about my detecting and take a look how is it to detect in Eastern Europe, when you have a lot of signals under your coil, but you...

Manufacturers Joking About Each Other (Teknetics Vs. Minelab, Battle Of The Pinpointers, Funny!) – updated!

Sometimes, the different detector manufacturers love to make jokes about each other for promotional purposes, and for us to have a good laugh. This is one funny example of that, and what do we see here under the advertisement of the new pinpointer? A little hello to Minelab! Update! Sometimes such jokes are finishing not as good as planned, but as the final result of that story – two comments...

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...

Video Tour Of The Production At Nokta/Makro (Interesting And Informative!)

The Turkish manufacturer of metal detectors Nokta / Makro – I remind you, they are two brands of metal detectors that belong to two brothers, posted on their channel on Youtube an interesting video, on which they show us a mini tour of the production, development center, quality control, and even the place of their metal detector testing! The video is interesting, it shows how and where new metal detectors...

Testing The Depth On The Nokta Impact! (Photos, Results+)

Hello friends, fellow detectorists and fans of our hobby! I recently went into the woods to test a new detector – the metal detector Nokta Impact from the Turkish company Nokta Detectors. For depth tests, I’m generally very cautious, because so many people try to wind up the result in one way or another, to sell more detectors. I stand a little away from this, I’m more interested in the...

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...

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...
