Finding Horse Decorations! (Identifying Finds, Photos +)

“Buttons from Gulliver’s pants” – this is the name that unexperienced detectorists sometimes call these finds, but of course they are wrong. Before you on this picture you can see a brass decoration buckle from a horse harness, or as we diggers like to call them, “horse buckles”. Such decorations were an invariable attribute from every farmer in the distant and not very distant past, and these days it is a...

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 some reason, the concept of holidays are always accompanied by the drinking of alcoholic beverages, and because of this, all nearby woodlands are simply strewn with bottle caps, foil, and wire. This trash actively...

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.

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.

German WW2 Dog Tags (Identifying Finds, Photos+)

On the photo above you can see four tags from the 118th stationary artillery battalion found in a bundle. These are so-called “unused”. These tokens were not given out. Today i am going to tell you about dog tags. In the German terminology this object is titled Erkennungsmarke.
