Spring Detecting With The Nokta Fors Relic! (Finds, Photos+)

A fellow detectorist sent us a little review and diggers story, where he has been detecting with the Nokta Fors Relic. He shares his impressions of the detector and he also sent us some pictures of his finds. Once again I am convinced that the Nokta Fors Relic is an excellent detector. I remember how surprised I was when I found out that the company Nokta, which produces metal detectors,...

76.2 mm Regimental Gun M1927 Found In Estonia (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...

Finds – Russian Coins In England (Photos+)

It so happened that I am subscribed to different pages and communities of various diggers around the world on Facebook, as well as to all the pages of metal detector manufacturers. How can I be without this, otherwise there will be no place to scoop up information about new items and various interesting finds. I am a member in a small, but very cozy community of one manufacturer of analog metal...

Second Time Detecting With The Makro Racer 2 And Nel Tornado Coil (Finds, Photos+)

I decided to add this article to the previous story about digging with the Macro Racer 2 and the Nel Tornado coil. This time the three of us went to a field where I had found a fibula before, and bronze from the times of Kievan Rus. Objects from the late, as well as early Middle Ages, can also be found here. And this time I did not find anything from the times...

And the first unfortunate vessel with an American crew and more than 6 thousand tons of different equipment and cargo on board that was...

A Man Found A Gold Nugget Worth More Than $50,000! (Photos+)

You know this saying – “Better safe than sorry?”. This story is well characterized by such a saying. In Queensland, Australia, one of the diggers, who wished to remain anonymous, was walking with a metal detector. Judging by what device he had – Minelab GPX 5000, then he walked with one goal – the search for native gold. Otherwise, there is nothing to look for in Australia’s wilds, there is...

Finding Roman Gold Coin! (Photos+)

Even though that many people say that all the good fields and the perfect finds are dug up, I do not believe it. On one hand, it’s true, on the other – there are still many places where life once bubbled and people lost coins, buried their goods and hid their jewelry. Everything made of metal can be found and dug up with a metal detector. Usual story –  a...

Weekend Out With The Makro Racer 2 (Diggers story, Photos+)

Many fans of this hobby usually go out to do what they love only on weekends. I agree that I almost only go detecting on weekends. The first day of the weekend I went out to dig on a Saturday, I got an hour and a half. I took with me the Macro Racer 2 with a regular coil. In the settings, I set it to the “three-tone” mode, while...
