14K Gold Medallion Found!
Hi JW, I just want to tell you that the verdict is in on the 8" DD Excelerator search coil you sent me. It is an excellent search coil and I highly recommend it to White's MXT and DFX users. It is what you would expect from a top of the line search coil. This coil is an excellent choice for open field hunting and even in high trash areas. I have only used it for about 6 or 7 hours but in that time I found that I was able to detect deep targets as I dug several targets that were in the 8 to 9 inch range. I feel that the coil is capable of getting down deeper. Pinpointing with this coil is a snap. You can pinpoint off the front of the coil or the back and when you dig your targe...

Whites MXT Find 1893 Worlds Fair Medallion
Hi My name is Jay, I've been detecting about fifteen years Just thought you would like to see this nice 1893 worlds fair medallion I found, it appears to be made of lead , I don't know much else about it or value if any. But I sure was excited to see that come out of the ground.It's huge as you can see in the pic compared to the rest of my haul. I found it using my Whites MXT with the 5" excelarator coil, found in London, Ontario Canada, about 4" deep. the ground is infested with well rusted iron and a lot of nails I usually get 2-3 in in every scoop of my digger. the MXT with 5" excelarator coil is great at separating trash. Keep up the good work ...I plan on getting a 14- 18...

Amazing Civil War Relic Found 10 Inches Deep!
I don't think I would have believed this story had I not dug this find up myself and written about it! I recently went to the latest field, the one where multiple detectors hunt everyday. After searching the lower grass area for awhile and finding nothing of note, I moved toward the far right corner where I had found two good bullets the other day. I found the knapsack J hook in the above photo on Friday....

20 Coins and Three Rings in 2 Hours!
I purchased my Garrett GTI 1500 just over 4 weeks ago. I had used metal detectors in the past and I finally bought my own. I live on the Gulf Coast of Alabama. My first weekend and two weekends after I hunted on local beaches. I found quite a few coins and some non expensive jewelry. In the next couple of weeks I hunted at an old house and a local swimming hole. In all I found over one hundred coins some more rings and other metal items. Just last Sunday morning I hunted for 2 hours and found 20 coins and three rings. One of which was silver with the center stone missing. I am very pleased with Garret's GTI 1500. I am having more success that I thought possible. The attache...

Fisher Metal Detector Finds Rings, Coins and more!
I have been an avid land hunter for 35 years but after detecting an old beach area and shallow water, my views are changing about detecting! My friend Sonny invited me down for some water detecting and I made the 250 mile drive to detect. I have tried water detecting on and off over the years with not much luck. My luck would change as both me and Sonny were using the Fisher CZ-20's and made some awesome finds. We detected for two days in the water for a total of about 8 hours. Our finds consisted of class rings from 1929, 36 and 37, silver and gold bands, walking liberty halves, standing liberty quarters, buffalo nickels, v nickel, mercury dimes, wheat's cents, token...

White's GMT Metal Detector Finds Gold Nugget
"Last winter I met some folks that told me about Dome Rock in Quartzsite, Arizona, where the ground is covered with quartz and you can still find gold nuggets! So I bought my White's GMT last January from Kellyco and started hunting around Quartzsite - out in the desert -from January through the last part of March. It gets WAY too hot to stay in Arizona in the summer time, but when it's cooler I take my GMT with the DD search coil and my pinpointer out as far as possible. It took me a few days of trying before I finally figured out that I should get off the desert floor and up into the dry washes of the mountains. Now I pretty much avoid areas where humans can live or c...

Necklace Loaded with Diamonds
Last weekend I was at the Beach on the west coast of FL and found a beauty. I hunted from about 11:00 a.m. to 6 p.m. I found the necklace at about 5 p.m. I also found $2.71, three junk earrings and a junk toe ring. The water is getting cool so on my next trip I will have on my wet suit....

Maryland Penny Sold for $41,000 at Auction!
Audie and I have been detecting together for over 15 years as good friends and best buddies. If I had a good day and he didnt, I would make sure he did. Hes always done the same for me, and weve always shared artifacts. Earlier this year we were given permission to detect some new grounds and we spent a pretty good part of the day there with not much luck. We decided to leave and spend the last part of the day in a crop field that we've been searching for years. Weve found some colonial artifacts and coins there in the past, and it was always worth another try. But that day, finds were few and far between. Just as we were ready to call it a day Audie got a nice signal ...

31 Coins and 2 rings in 4 Hours!
What a winter. Snow and very, very cold. Not being able to underwater or land treasure hunt makes me very unhappy and miserable. I am about 70 miles from Long Island sound. I try to go on my days off which are Mondays. I will go when I can catch the low tide during the middle of the day. As of this writing, I have made 4 trips and I have found a piece of gold 3 out of 4 times. I consider myself very lucky because these areas are heavily hunted year round with the best of metal detectors and hunters. Recently, I arrived at the beach about 10:45 am with the temperature at 13 and the wind chill below 0. I usually get out into the water and use my Headhunter PI. Even though this a...

Never Give Up - There's No Such Thing As Hunted Out!
Well known campsites in the coastal areas of George and South Carolina are often considered hunted out. But I have proof that hunted out is nonsense! I have found an impressive amount of American Civil War relics with my new, Fisher CZ metal detector from Kellyco. All were found in areas that have been pounded by those who consider themselves Pros and use every type of metal detector imaginable. click on images to enlarge But thanks to the added depth of the new, 10 search coil for the Fisher CZ-3D, I was able to find some truly amazing relics. You can see from my pictures that most of these relics were left from the Civil War - Buttons, belt buckles,...
