31 Coins and 2 rings in 4 Hours!
What a winter. Snow and very, very cold. Not being able to underwater or land treasure hunt makes me very unhappy and miserable. I am about 70 miles from Long Island sound. I try to go on my days off which are Mondays. I will go when I can catch the low tide during the middle of the day. As of this writing, I have made 4 trips and I have found a piece of gold 3 out of 4 times. I consider myself very lucky because these areas are heavily hunted year round with the best of metal detectors and hunters. Recently, I arrived at the beach about 10:45 am with the temperature at 13 and the wind chill below 0. I usually get out into the water and use my Headhunter PI. Even though this area is heavily hunted, I feel I have an edge because our PI goes so deep. Today wasn’t going to be one of those days. Wind chill was too low. I decided to use my Headhunter Diver and work in the rocks as the tide was going out. In 4 hours I found 31 coins and 2 rings (1 Gold). I also found some pulltabs and lead, but not that much junk. There were lots of hot rocks there, but it was easy for me to ignore them because they give off their own distinct signal. Most of the finds were made from 1“ to about 8“ or 9“ deep. I had no problem with the salt water. The Headhunter is a joy to use, light and easy… And of course, any day you find a piece of gold is a great day.
