Alpine
I was on my brother-in-law's family's land where there was a CSA camp. I was in the swamp with my Garrett Ace 350 and look what I found. I gave it to his family for part of the history they are doing about where they live. It's being put up for years to come. We all call it the swamp thing....

First Gold Coin 3 Silvers
Well here are my finds from 2 different sites today I detected in Eastern North Carolina. My first gold coin!! An 1861 $1, with the multiple errors. It has a 180 deg die rotation,die cracks, doubling (possibly machine), and die clashes. I am calling VF20ish, but a couple of others have said XF range. I also hunted the Lenoir County Fair Grounds where I found clad, 3 silvers, and a heart charm....

First Bust half!!
This is my second silver find for the year , an 1836 lettered edge Bust Half!!! This is my first silver half find ever. Got it with my Ace 250, fitted with the 10x14" DD Excelerator search coil. It is by far my best coin find ever. I have hunted this site several times before and only found a lot of junk and some clad as it is next to my old elementary school. This was found near the creek that runs behind the school yard. I will wait until winter and detect along the creek. This site is also located along the route the Union Army took when they left Kinston, N.C. to eventually fight at Bentonville near Goldsboro, N.C. So I should be able to f...

My first platinum ring.
I have been beach hunting for 8 years and have made some nice finds, but I had never found a platinum ring, but that was soon to change. I arrived at my favorite beach at about 10:30 a.m. I got out my amphibious detector and began hunting the water and wet sand. After 1 1/2 hours of searching with only a few coins and trash items found, I switched to my Ace 250 and began searching the dry sand. I soon began finding clad coins and a few trash items. Then, 40 minutes later, I scooped up a small engagement ring. I picked the ring out of the scoop and looked for markings inside the band. I was very surprised to find the letters IRID PLAT. I had found m...

Mr. Adel Al-wadidi
I have recently purchased new Garrett Ace 350. The detector is so good and easy to understand, its a fantastic device. I live in Yemen in mountain area of Sanaa. I started detecting in the area surrounding my house. There used to be a running stream in the nearby site, while I was searching the site I have detected 37.1 Grams platinum nugget as my first finding. Hope to find other items with my detector soon, happy hunting people. ...

First coin cache
I went back to the old 1903 farmstead where I had dug a truck load of modern Lincolns. I felt like that there had to be more there than just Lincolns at a 111 year old site. I spent 4.5 hours there on this hunt and it paid off in spades, or should I say silver. Scored $2 in clad and a baby food jar with $5.30 face in silver Roosevelt dimes and Washington quarters. The baby food jar of coins was under some loose boards of the wood floor that was in one of the stalls in the barn. This is my first ever coin cache and contained more silvers total than I have found since I started detecting six years ago. This year has by far been my best year ever with...
