One Year Detecting Anniversary!

Hunting the south jersey beaches was a little slow this summer as we hadn't had many storms that brings on good beach hunting due to beach errosion. My Excalibur II has great depth and finding small jewerly t is a plus for this great machine.

Working near the sand dunes for 3 hours I found 6 silver coins 1927 to 1942, one gold cross and three silver rings. This has been a great month for me. My thanks to Minelab for building this rugged and waterproof detector, this month is my one year anniversary metal detecting and I understand I still have a lot to learn. My finds have already surpast the cost of my Excalibur II. Thanks again.
