My first diamond ring with the CTX 3030
I have been detecting for a little over a year on the beaches of Florida. I would post pictures of my finds on my Facebook.One day, my son commented on one of my pics that I should get a Minelab CTX 3030. He said I would find more gold. So I went and checked out the 3030 and decided to buy one. I hit the beach as soon as I got it....

Just Enough Lead To Float the Hobby!
I bought my Fisher 1280X water detector about 3 weeks ago from Kellyco. I have been a customer since 1979 when I bought a Bounty Hunter Red Baron. Over the years, I have had the privilege to hunt sites that many people could never get permission to hunt. Back in "The Day" I regularly came home with 3 or 4 Civil War Buckles, 4 or 5 bombs, buckets of bullets, etc. My best finds were 2 complete Flat-Nose 3" USA Hotchkiss shells, a CSA rectangle, a medieval battle axe, and a pit full of dead German soldiers in Kiev. ...

My First Silver Coin
I bought the Ace 250 about 2 months ago. I really only have to time hunt after work before the sun sets, or on the weekends. Last week I was hitting the park across from my apartments, and had dug up 2 wheaties from the early '20's. I was swinging away when I got a solid sounding signal...

CTX 3030 solves a 1500 year old Saxon puzzle!
Sometime in the last 1500 years a beautifully decorated and richly gilded Saxon artifact was sadly broken in half. Most likely through intense agricultural activity the two pieces were then scattered further apart over the passing centuries. Or, who knows, perhaps originally a Saxon noble threw away the broken artifact in anger after he snapped it, or did a mighty warrior and his horse crash to earth, smashing off the ornately decorated artifact unnoticed amidst the violent actions of a long forgotten and unrecorded battle?...
First day finds with the CTX 3030
Well I recently obtained the new Minelab CTX 3030 metal detector and, as always with a new detector, I was initially operating in Factory Preset mode. I like to do this as it's always the best platform from which to make later modifications to suit both the operator and even the site being searched. However, for this first day I was going to stay in this mode for some time.The site I was searching had been detected for 40 years, but of course finds over the last decade were becoming scarce. Its main reputation is as a site of some considerable Saxon importance and, since the 1970's, many Sceats and artefacts had been located here....

CTX 3030 Scores the Trifecta!
Today was a good day in that I scored the Trifecta! Copper, silver and gold! I suppose you could call it a grand-slam as I actually found four nice items, of four different metals. First was the 1939 nickel. Next was the 1939 copper penny. The third was a nice 1900 silver dime. And the fourth was the gold locket.The first picture is of the four "keepers" I found today. Lots of modern coins. But only the three old coins and nice piece of gold jewelry.The picture with the dime shows how deep it was buried....
