These pictures are from two separate hunts, First three pics are from today's hunt after work, i picked both the silver rings four feet from each other, the merc was a tough one it was bouncing all over the place , when in doubt dig it out ," right " glad i did!!
1923s , A Dave and Busters token from 2001, and a bunch of clad!!!! awesome hunt
The last two pics are from yesterday, Managed to pic a 1941 Washington, 1936 merc no mint mark, and a promotional badge ,
for Wards soft bun bread, it reads (official reporter scoop ward news of youth wards soft bun bread) it appears to be copper?
I don't know much about the badge? any info would be appreciated, I don't know whats going on but the explorer is on fire lately,
but im not complaining though, thanks for looking.

I'd say it's on a roll as well:thumbup:

Nice finds:beers:



Here's the link to my field test post containing over 60 different hunts of various coil tests...field tests published in Western & Eastern Treasures Magazine...comparisons...nicer finds...etc..:

Been swingin' the coil since 1972

Started out in 1972 with a Jetco Detector...then the late 70's with a Whites 6000:whites:....then in 1981 went to a Bounty Hunter VLF TR 840:bounty:

Then in the early 1980's I went to a Whites 6000 Di Pro:whites:...mid 80's I went to a Whites Eagle II SL:whites:...Late 80's/Early 90's I went to the Whites XLT:whites:

1990's I used the Fisher CZ5, CZ6, CZ7, 7aPro, and CZ70Pro (still have)...and am currently doing some water hunting with my CZ-21:fisher:...

Started using Minelabs in 1999:minelab:

with a brief stint on the Musketeer while also using the CZ's...then in 2002 I switched to the Minelab Explorers and currently use the Explorer SE Pro as my main machine. I also use the Explorer 2 and E-trac often... and have a CTX3030 I use as a backup:minelab: Might also mention I have an arsenal of coils for the Explorers:thumbup:


"Metal detecting is an escape for me and allows me to find some much needed peace and solace.
Being able to clear my head...even if only for that short while...is much more meaningful than any amount of finds that end up in my pouch"

It is from the 30s and is a wards bread promo item, It originally had blue painted lettering inside the letters. There are a bunch on ebay and various auction sites. I have seen them sell for between 1.25 and 65 dollars. Idigid
