Finding Horse Decorations! (Identifying Finds, Photos +)

“Buttons from Gulliver’s pants” – this is the name that unexperienced detectorists sometimes call these finds, but of course they are wrong. Before you on this picture you can see a brass decoration buckle from a horse harness, or as we diggers like to call them, “horse buckles”. Such decorations were an invariable attribute from every farmer in the distant and not very distant past, and these days it is a...

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...

Will The Fisher F44 Have Less Depth With A Big Coil Compared To Other Detectors? (Testing, Answer +)

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 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.

Rare Crucifixes From The 14-16 Centuries (Identifying Finds +)

When digging for relics, the finds are not only coins, but also different relics and personal items, like buttons and crucifixes worn around the neck. It seems that people used to love to fight, have a good party, or simply maybe the rope just broke and the crucifix fell off. In any case, good finds in form of rare crosses can be found: Initially, we see crosses with the image of the Savior...
