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.

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.

CTX 3030 Scores the Trifecta!

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....
