Early Gold Rush Coins and Relics
Had a once in a lifetime hunt in the Victorian Goldfields with the CTX 3030 finding a dozen silver coins. Given how hot the ground is the CTX 3030 is the only machine that I would rely on to get these great targets. Also have these finds logged as find points for future hunts.

One of the really nice relics was a clock winder that was also a working compass (gilded in gold).
