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...

Detecting Coins In The Autumn (Diggers Story, Finds, Photos+)

How often do you go detecting? I used to do it stable twice a week, digging a lot, but now I don’t go so often, unfortunately. But now it was finally time to dig – the fields have been removed, there is still a lot of corn stubble in many fields, but in general, it does not affect the detecting too much. You can go and find it, the main...

Are You Out Digging Fields In The Autumn? (News From The Fields, Finds+)

While the depressing autumn rain is already pounding on the window, it is a good time to tell about a recent detecting trip. So, the place of this detecting was an abandoned area with broken roads and endless fields. There weer some outskirts of an ancient village there, and near to it, there once was a road through which the army of Ivan the Terrible went to take Kazan. It was...

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...

Finding The Aureus Golden Coin Of Maximianus Herculius! (Amazing Find, Photos+)

Not long ago, a very lucky detectorist found his find of a lifetime: a golden coin from the times of Maxmilian! Just imagine what he thought when finding such a coin, or instead of imaginin g it, you could read his history: Greetings to all comrades! There was such a tradition that before my birthday of April the 5th I go detecting in the hope of finding a gift for...

Finding A WW2 Stg 44 In The Attic? Easy! (Photos+)

In fact, some very interesting news happened recently in Poland. In an ordinary city, in the attic of an ordinary building, suddenly there was an assault rifle from the times of the Third Reich – the Stg 44! (Sturmgewehr 44). Judging by the photo, the owners of the house or workers were engaged in breaking the old roof and attic. This house is so old that it seems not to...

British Detectorist Finds Ancient Roman Treasure! (Video, Photos+)

A British man was out with his metal detector when he found something no-one else found before him in England. In Gloucestershire, England, Pete Cresswell and his brother-in-law Andrew Boughton found a small treasure stock of bronze statues from the last years of the Roman occupation of the country. This treasure also contained parts of metal boxes, handles that have been placed on boxes, parts of metal statues, parts of...
