Minelab E-Trac Finds 1788 Spanish Silver Reale!
I just want to thank Kellyco for the 10x12 sef (Butterfly) coil I ordered on March 2, 2010. Yesterday (March 12, 2010) I found my best find ever with it - a 1788 Spanish Silver Reale! The coin is 222 years old and was minted when Ohio (my home state) was wild frontier populated by settlers, soldiers and Native Americans. Shoot, Ohio didn't even become a state until 1803!...

Well I have to say guys and gals that today will go down in my record books as the most heart stopping, body shaking and my legs couldn't stop dancing. I'm still on cloud nine trying to tell all of you what happened in my day, I started out by Google-earthing my area and came across a small little park that I had hunted probably more than a year ago, so I headed out to see if I could use the program that Angel had posted the other day which by the way it work very well for me and my XLT...

Today was my first time out to go detecting in quite awhile. I have had the 6X8 SEF coil for my MXT from JW at Kellyco for several months and really have been itching to give it a try. I have played around in my home doing air test and it would hit a dime at 9"-the same as the stock coil...

Civil War Relics Found
I used this coil with my Minelab Explorer 2 on a Civil War battlefield searching for relics. This was done with full permission of the owner in a area that had been searched many times by different detectors over the years. Using my stock 10.5 coil I searched a area and found a few medium size shell fragments as well as the usual farm equipment pieces you would expect in a field. On average the stock coil was pulling fragments down to a depth of 12 inches. I believed that there were larger fragments and relics below what I could find so I purchased the 16.5 coil....

Gold Ring Found with White's DFX Metal Detector
Everybody has someone that they detect with, and my friend is Bill Green, who lives close by me. Bill and I detect at least twice a week. Recently, a new member of our detecting club, Rob Hill, has become a regular with us.

Hanks White Gold Medallion
As told to Kellyco; On only his third day using his new Fisher CZ-21 Metal Detector, Hank, in water a bit over waist high heard the sound all metal detectorists, love to hear, the sound of a good target located in the warm water off a Florida East Coast beach. In January 2010. Doctor told Hank he better do something about his health. Dr. said "start exercising and watch what you eat" and lose some weight. So Hank tried walking for exercise which as he says "is pretty boring". He then decided to try metal detecting to make walking a little more exciting. Living close to the beach as Hank did made his new exercise program easier. Walking on the beach sand, swinging his new ...

Kellyco Has a New Star
A week or so ago, my wife and I were shopping at a local store when we met a friend of ours who works at Kellyco. During our conversation he mentioned that they were expecting a new 8X6 Butterfly Coil for the Garrett's Ace 250 and 150. I ask him to call me when they came in as both my wife and one of my sons have 250s. He called the other day to tell me they were in and yesterday, Friday, I went to pick one up. I ask him if he thought it would work on my "OLD 550"? We checked it out on one of the 550s in the store and it looked like it would work. Now my "OLD 550" is the first machine I started with back in 2005. It has been through many battles all over this nation....
