Finding Roman Silver With The Fisher F44! (Find, Photos+)

There is a field near my city, on which many ceramic parts from the Chernyakhov culture (2 -5 c. AD) can be found for many centuries. This ancient settlement wass from the times of the Roman Empire, and it was huge (several square kilometers), so it’s not at all surprising that there are different kinds of stories about this place among diggers, I even know some of them. Story number 1....

Finding Silver With The Fisher F75! (Diggers story, Photos+)

The Fisher F75 is an amazing piece of technology, and truly my favorite detector. It is light, works perfect and it will do the job😊. I have had very many good finds with it, but the most recent one is one of my favorites: Today, me and my friend decided to go out detecting, because there was such a nice weather, probably the first summer day here in Norway. We...

Digging In Germany With The Ace 150! (Amazing Finds, Coins, War Relics, Photos+)

I was recently on a trip to Germany, and long story short, I didn’t bring my Fisher F75. But fortunately, my friend had a detector. It wasn’t quite the F75, it was an ACE 150 with the standard coil. “At least it is better than nothing”, I thought. And I was certainly right. So, after arriving to Germany, me and my friend Marco Schmitt, who I was visiting, went out...

It would seem that many people think that to find a treasure you would need to get a good metal detector. And “good” usually means “expensive”. But no, you dint need an expensive detector for this, a huge treasure was recently found with a low-cost entry-level metal detector! One guy in Ukraine went detecting with his Teknetics Eurotek PRO and Nel Hunter coil- seemingly not with an XP Deus un his hands, and stumbled...

Digging Silver With The Fisher F75 (Photos+)

A Tsar silver coin is a quite rare find. More often we come across local Livonian, Swedish and Polish-Lithuanian silver coins. As a rule, they have a slightly larger size. This time I was lucky to find a real flake. We were digging on the site of an old country road. At first glance, the place quite unremarkable. The road and the next field, divided by stone walls in the 1970s...

Starting The Season With The F75! (Amazing Find, Photos+)

Foggy spring morning in a field with the Fisher F75 The early spring in our Nordic country is characterized by low grass, cold weather and wind. Not too good weather, of course, but the northerners are not so easy to stop! I began to recall the places where to couldn’t detect in the sommer. The first stop I made was on a plowed field, where there used to be a little village,...

Six Groschen Stephen BĂĄthory (Expensive Find, Photos+)

Coins that you find will often be more or less worthless. For archaeologists, of course, any coins, especially old ones are important to the history of the places. For diggers, collectors and everyone else, rare and valuable coins are important. The price of really rare coins can only be determined at an auction. Obviously; the rarer the coin is- the more worth it has! In addition, other things can affect...

Finding a Silver Rouble from 1765! (Photos +)

Many detectorists will say that all the good coins are gone, dug out of the field. This is partly true; the number of finds are reduced every year. But even in an over-detected field I believe deep in my heart that each ploughing of a field will bring new coins. But one story struck me this year. It was about a detectorist who found a huge silver coin from 1765!...
