Fisher Metal Detector Finds 1897 Dime
I have had my new CoinStrike for about 3 weeks now, and I continue to learn more about it each time I take it out. It is a bit different to operate than any detector I have used in my 35 years of detecting. That said, I do like a challenge! For the past few years, my brother and I have spent most of our coin hunting time at old home sites and old fair grounds in a four County area. With high gas prices, limited time, and extreme hot temperature, I decided "why not learn my new Coin Strike close to home"? The city park where I live is only about 3 blocks from my house. Spending most of my recent detecting time in open spaces, detecting in a park setting with modern trash wou...

Fisher F-75 Finds Civil War Relics Right Out of the Box
I've been a metal detectorist for over 30 years now, but two hours out with my Fisher F-75 delivered my favorite and best find to date. My F-75 was literally right out of the box, and all I had with me was a digging shovel. I was out on some private property (with permission of course) and the ground was dry and hard. Now, having been an excavating contractor in the early 70's, I was familiar with various types of ground soil. The company I worked for all those years ago had bought a metal detector to locate underground utilities and when it didn't work as they wanted I bought it from them. I lived beside and hunted "The Battle of Cedar Creek" battlefield for many years ...

Maryland Penny Sold for $41,000 at Auction!
Audie and I have been detecting together for over 15 years as good friends and best buddies. If I had a good day and he didnt, I would make sure he did. Hes always done the same for me, and weve always shared artifacts. Earlier this year we were given permission to detect some new grounds and we spent a pretty good part of the day there with not much luck. We decided to leave and spend the last part of the day in a crop field that we've been searching for years. Weve found some colonial artifacts and coins there in the past, and it was always worth another try. But that day, finds were few and far between. Just as we were ready to call it a day Audie got a nice signal ...

Three-year-old Finds £2.5m Treasure with Fisher F75 Metal Detector
A three-year old boy playing with his grandad's metal detector struck gold when he found treasure worth an estimated £2.5million - a 500-year-old gold locket. James Hyatt struck gold when he unearthed the 16th century artefact in a field on his very first outing using a metal detector. Experts believe it is one of only four of its kind in Britain and could have belonged to royalty. James's dad Jason said: 'He was so excited when he realised he had found real treasure.' 'He is one of the luckiest people ever. He'll put his hand down the sofa and pull out a tenner.' James, who lives in Billericay, Essex, was out walking with his grandad and dad in nearby Hockley when he...
