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...

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...

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...

Detecting In 2017, The Secrets Of Beach Detecting! (Diggers Story, Finds, Tips, Photos+)

This year, unexpectedly, I traveled on vacation to the Odessa region, namely the settlement Zatoka. I got there at the beginning of the vacation season.

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 example, coins and buttons found in the sand, as rule, are well-preserved, and items found...

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,...

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...
