One Ring Lead to Another

My wife works with a lady who's brother (Harry) has a friend that lost a gold ring in a pond in a local neighborhood some 40 years ago skipping stones. We were called to give it a shot. The trashy pond has since "dried" up, well kind of, there isn't any standing water but, with every scoop we took the hole filled up with muddy water. After about 2 hours of hunting and sloshing around we decided to wait until the area either dried out some more or maybe when it freezes this winter.

A Seated in the Gloaming

I have used the E-TRAC for 3 years and have been very pleased with it and my results, I recently decided to go to the CTX 3030 and I can say I am pleased immensely. I can vouch that the CTX 3030 is just not a waterproof E-TRAC but a wonderful machine based on a whole new platform.

Missing WW2 Bomber

I have been an aviation archaeologist specialising in WW2 aircraft for over 30 years now. Whilst researching for a book 10 years ago I came across an incident that took place over Shepreth in Cambridgeshire. This involved the crash of a B17 Flying Fortress Mk1 one of 20 sent over from the USA as part of Lend Lease Agreement. This plane broke up one chilly January morning in 1942 and I was never really able to pin point where. Recently a detecting colleague mentioned that he had heard of a B17 crash about 1.5 miles away from Shepreth but again no real idea of where.

Broken Mirrors are Not Always Bad Luck

Over the last few years my friend Steve has found several fragments of a Roman mirror. Firstly his Safari found the initial pieces and then he borrowed my CTX 3030 a few times that found some more. This year the field was ploughed deeply first time ever and the spot where the mirror pieces came from revealed a small very smashed up Roman cremation burial.

23 Gram Gold Ingot Viking or Bronze Age

I started out on a normal days detecting, or so I thought!! First good signal turned out to be a very worn Elizabeth hammered penny but they all count and I was up and running. I headed up the field finding a worn rose farthing on the way amongst lots of other bits and bobs! Soon it was time to head roughly towards camp for a bite to eat so I checked Google Earth and spotted a couple of features in the next door field I wanted to check out and started off.

Gold in the Sand

My new CXT 3030 turned up and I could not wait to get it set up and get down to the beach. Well off I went, the tide was on its way out so I started to detect just above the water mark. I had it in the factory setting until I got used to it. I pulled up a few modern coin up within a few mins then about half an hour in I dug down about 6-7 inches and pulled out a nice 18ct gold ring.

Silver was Jumping Out of the Ground

Recently I was given the heads up from the parks department, about a sports field which was to be renovated. I invited 4 other detectorists to come and enjoy the party. The city had removed 3" of sod and soil prior to tilling sand into it to improve drainage. As a group we recovered 102 pieces of silver while the site was open to us. My take from the field with the CTX 3030 was 50 pieces. Thanks Minelab for making a superior machine. I am having a blast.

Saxon Coin

Went to an old site of mine where you pick up a few roman coins never been on it with the CTX 3030 so I thought I would give it a try. After finding 4 roman coins my next signal was a nice low sound thought it was a roman again but when I dug down there it was a nice silver Saxon coin. You can't beat the CTX 3030.

Lovely Condition Henry 6th Half Groat

Picked this lovely condition hammered half groat from a very iron contaminated site, which has been blitzed by every conceivable top end machine on the market today. Utilizing Gordin Heritage's Tadpole 2 program and using the standard stock coil the target trace told me iron was present but also a non ferrous conductor. CTX 3030 is hard to beat!

Cool Token

Went to a 1902 house for some detecting and on my 2nd visit I found a token. At first I thought it was a cool old token but today (Sept. 23 2013) I found out it is rare also. I have been spending a bunch of time trying to research this token for the last few days since I found it to no avail.
