Georgia Gold Unearthed With Garrett GTI 2500
We were recently surveying a historical indian camp site in Kansas and I found a silver metal piece. The archologist we were working with has since completed research on the object and sent me the results. The engraving of the lion, unicorn and coat of arms represents the Royal Coat of Arms for the King of England. The coat of arms frequently changed and this version was in use from 1801 to 1811. You can see from the picture that holes had been drilled into each end so it was probably used as an arm band. It was probably picked up during a raid and it's original usage is unknown at this time. I was using my Garrett GTP 1350 metal detector purchased from Kellyco and I am ve...

6x8 S.E.F. Search Coil with Minelab E-Trac
Got my new SEF 6x8 coil yesterday and put it to the test right away. My buddy and I hit a Boy Scout camp which shutdown in 1968 and is now private property which his buddy owns. We hit it for 3 hours and the Etrac with the small sef pulled out 15 wheats, 2 mercs, 1 rosie, 1 quarter, 2 jeffersons, 1 V nickel, boy scout necker slider and a WWII medal. A lot of these coins had nails, crown caps and just plain junk soil type stuff mixed in....

Minelab Sovereign GT Finds $4500 Ring!
I DID IT! I DID IT! I DID IT!!!!! The find of a life time - pinch me. I had no idea of what i found! We went over to Daytona Beach to hunt and hoped to find something left by the fourth of July weekenders. We got up early, which about killed me since I went to bed around two! We hit the beach at 9a.m. and hunted to about one when a very bad storm sent us off the beach. That was ok I needed a break and was hungry so we stopped at Wendy's and then proceeded to my spot. I told Jerry I have been wanting to go to my favorite spot all month, that is where I found that silver bracelet with the dragon fly and the three rings. We sat there in the car waiting for the rain to...

The Spectra V3's wireless headhphones make treasure hunting a real pleasure!
The Spectra V3 has been a real joy to use. It can be used to match any hunting condition I have encountered so far. The preset programs provide impressive depth. These finds came from areas that have been pounded by other detectors, and yet the Spectra V3 found what the others had missed. The Spectra V3 with the Live Control Bar capability makes adjusting on the fly so easy. It's like using an detector with knobs. Plus, it can be customized to suite the type of hunting conditions and/or the controls that one desires. The Spectragraph and the Analysis Screens make it easy to find the good targets. I especially like to see which frequency responds better, and coupled wi...

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!...

White's XLT Unearths Not Two, but Three Rings!
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...
