A Hidden Family Treasure

Hello,

Knowing that I am passionated about detecting, one of my neighbour asked me if there were any chances that I could help him. He wanted to check if there is no valuable object left in his mother’s house as he was about to sell it. He just inherited the house from his mother who previously inherited it from her own mother. It’s a typical small cottage from Bretagne in the Finistère region, France. Equipped with my trusty Safari and PRO-FIND 25 I started to cover methodically the attic.

Pulled this ring from the surf line about 6 to 8" down with my Safari. Rang gold and it sure was. Great beach detector....

New Safari finds 1780 Reale

Hello, I recently purchased a Minelab Safari and am loving it. The more I learn the machine and it's many functions, the more I am enjoying it and the more great stuff I am digging up.

Last week I found an old stone foundation in the woods and began searching. Within 30 minutes I dug up this beautiful 1780 Spanish 2 reale!! I was ecstatic! This is by far the best coin I have found in my 15 years of detecting.

The Return of Ms. Tiffany

I only had my Safari for a few weeks, when my Brother in law asked me if I could help him recover a Silver Tiffany Ring that his daughter, my niece lost in their front yard about 5 yrs ago. So I said I would give it a try.

My niece lost the ring while throwing a ball for the dog to chase. Because it was silver, I was searching for that high signal. I spent about 4 hrs searching for the high silver signal & could not locate it.

A Lock on the Past
My very special Minelab Safari metal detector is almost three years old and it keeps on finding some of the most interesting items that my little home town can produce. I never really gave much consideration to submitting an entry in Minelab’s “Find of the Month” program when I first bought my Safari, mostly because I was too busy with my twice a week treasure hunts, then cleaning and researching my various trophies....

Coastal Site Reveals Art Nouveau Pansy Pin

Been a while since I dug.

Started at 4:45am yesterday at a coastal site that was a scrap metal/junk car area of the city. In the early 20th century, they bulldozed all the buildings, filled in a tidal inlet, and built a row of homes where the shoreline now sits.

The site has given up gold on two previous hunts, an Artcarved Band, and an ornate Clockface piece. Also lots of .50 cal ammo and some artillery pieces.

New Location Brings New Surprises

Saturday June 9 2012, I had to work today so I got out for a short hunt after work. It was hot and I wanted to stay in a shady area. I was a hunting a place I have never hunted before. I dug the usual trash and clad coins. I also dug two wheat cents and King George penny. Then a large sterling religious medal with Jesus on one side and Virgin Mary and Baby Jesus on the other.

I was happy with the Sterling medal and not really expecting much else after that. A few minutes later I got a good signal with my Safari. Though it seemed to be a bit large for a coin I figured I would be digging a smashed can. I dug down around...

Speechless

On June 7th after work I went to check out a place I had heard of from some older generation that this was an old swimming hole. About 200 yards from it was and old stone foundation. I started detecting and was finding some old relics. Nothing to brag of then I got a siver signal and it was a barber dime about 8 inches deep.

Then another and another. I then checked within the foundation and got a good strong silver signal again. About a foot deep I dug my first half and it was my first walking. I was very very excited at this point. Then I went to fill the whole back in and a glimmer caught my eye in the plug. I had t...
