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...

Sherman Tanks Retrieved From The “Thomas Donaldson” Ship (Video, Photos+)

  Recently, an interesting event occurred – specialists from the Northern Fleet rescue team retrieved 2 Sherman Tanks, it seems with the modification of the M4A2 (76) W, from a ship called “Thomas Donaldson”. “Thomas Donaldson” was sunk on March 20, 1945, by a submarine U-995. 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...

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...
