Digging The Forest With The Fisher F44 (Diggers Story, Photos+)

I rarely make full reports about detecting, because I often tell about an interesting find. But today it will be a report about what I liked with my result. On a day off, four of us left in the morning to one promising forest. That area was interesting because there they have found a lot of different objects of the Cossack times. The forest I was planning to detect in,...

Wehrmacht WW2 Belt Buckles (Description, Variants, Identifying Finds +)

I will continue the subject of the “identifying finds from the Wehrmacht”. In the previous part we wrote about the mess kits of the Wehrmacht during the Second World War, about what types there was and how to determine them here: Wehrmacht Kochgeschirr. If you have not seen or read that article yet- I recommend it. Now I would like to tell more about the belt buckle of the Wehrmacht, and...

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...

German Wehrmacht Mess Kits “Kochgeschirr” (Identifying Finds, Photos+)

A standard German mess kit, or “Kochgeschirr” as the Germans call it, consisted of two halves; the bottom or the “mess kit”, closed with a lid on top, which could be used as a pan. They were originally made of aluminium. The height of the Kochgeschirr is approximately 14 cm and it can hold about 1.7 liters. It is shaped kind of like a kidney when viewed from above. The...

How deep does the Fisher F44 detect? (Test, Video+)

Hello friends! You know the difference between a budget and an expensive metal detector? That’s right, an experienced digger knows – the price! And what about the depth? Most detectorists chase after the depth, and only experienced people go after new places to detect. The depth is not so important when you are looking for example two hours in a row, not everyone wants to be digging trenches, but why?...

Teknetics T2 Review and First Impressions (Info, Thoughts, Photos +)

Before I start off this review, I want to shortly have the attention of my Norwegian readers:   Før jeg starter denne anmeldelsen av Teknetics T2 metalldetektor, vil jeg bare kort henvende meg til mine norske lesere. T2 er en ganske undervurdert metalldetektor på det norske markedet. Den er en bestselger over alt, bortsett fra i Norge ettersom den først nylig ble introdusert til det norske markedet. T2 er forløperen til Fisher F75...

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...

The New Detector Garrett AT MAX – What Is Known And What Will Happen? (Update, Video News +)

Garrett has recently announced its new product – the metal detector Garrett AT MAX. We have already written about these news here: The new metal detector Garrett AT Max. Many diggers have talked about the similarity of appearance of the new Garrett and the AT Pro- and I too thought that Garrett only slightly updated its popular model Garrett AT Pro, increasing the brightness, updating the sound transmitter to work with...

SS Shells- Interesting Finds! (Identifying Finds, Photos +)

Among the collectibles of different pieces of World War II, there are people separately collecting everything related to the famous SS. These are often the most valuable and expensive artifacts, because even the buckle on the SS will cost several times more than an ordinary Wehrmacht buckle. One of the most affordable items are the SS shells, which do not cost too much, but grow in value because they are getting...

The VDI For Coins On The Macro Racer 2. Why Is It Important To Know? (Result, Photos+)

The first 2 years when I was detecting, I was searching in the forests near old settlements. It is generally known that forest and coastal zones are the most favorite places to spend the holidays. 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...
