1843 Large one cent penny with my Garrett
I have been metal detecting for many years as my dad got me interested in it when I was a kid. I have been driving by this little lot for years and always said to myself I should stop one day and metal detect that spot. With kids and work its hard to find time now a days. Until I found myself with some free time on my birthday so I headed over to that spot....

Paid for itself on 1st use!
I was excited for my Garrett 2500 to come in, so I waited at the office for it on Saturday. I had recently lost my white gold wedding ring in my chicken house, my wife I live on the family ranch. Needless to say I was quite ticked off and the wife wasn't happy either. I had always wanted to get into metal detecting and this was a perfect reason to do so, as well that week I lost my $40 fencing pliers while pulling posts. So my Garrett came in and that Sunday I got it going along with the pro-pointer that came with the deal....

Garrett GTI 2500 Metal Detector Unearths Georgia Gold
I just wanted to tell you that I have found my first gold nugget after having my GTI 2500 for six weeks. I found it at an old gold mine here in Georgia. It is 7.2 grams or 4.6 Dwt and it is a beauty! Recently, I bought a GTI 2500 used and sent it to Garrett to install the new mineralization chip in it. I was happy with it when I got it back. It would punch through this extremely high mineralization ground here in Georgia and I could run it with much higher sensitivity! To make this story short, I found this nugget in a creek near the edge of the embankment at an old gold mine....

Garrett GTI 2500 Metal Detector Finds 1847 Half Dime
Joe Wilson of Dallas has been hunting with his Garrett GTI 2500 for more than eight years. He took advantage of a factory modification which turned his detector into a virtual GTI 2500. He has made countless discoveries, including an expensive diamond ring and a valuable gold bracelet. His most recent discovery is of slightly less monetary value but of much greater historic value. Joe was hunting with the Golden Triangle Explorers Society south of the Dallas area when he found a rare coin....

Ancient Coins from 30-15 BC
Unbelievable is the only way to describe my recent treasure hunting adventure in the UK with my GTI 2500. It wasn't long after starting our search that I found a full Celtic Gold Stater of Addedemaras, Celtic Chief in approximately 30-15 BC. Fate was again kind to me and I retrieved another from only about 4-5 inches down, the GTI 2500 locked on perfectly! I held a slightly different Stater in my hand, which turned out to be a rare off center strike showing part of the legend that is usually not visible....

Garrett GTI 2500 Metal Detector Finds Treasure!
I currently own a GTI 2500 that Garrett sent me in exchange for stories and finds. I've been metal detecting for 6 years and have done quite well. I detected in England for a week in February and did real well finding my first Gold Coin (a celtic quarter stater that dates to 65 BC) among other things, roman coins, a George Washington Innagural Button, and over 50 colonial coins. I live in Medicine Hat, Alberta Canada and teach History to Junior High students which has been a huge advantage as far as gaining permission to hunt some off limit sites. I volunteer with local Historical Societies as well. On Saturday I took out a couple buddies to a NWMP...
