:detecting:My niece & her husbund bought this place in the country, The house was built in 1850. Needless to say I got permission to hunt. Its been really hot so I've hunted twice for about 2 hrs each time. Only 2 silver so far but I'm not out of the back yard yet. The buckles & buttons are kind of neat. I don't know how old they are but they are neat finds. GL EVERYONE

Nice finds stubbs 1.:clapping: I bet there has got to be some other cool stuff there if nobody has detected this place before. Good luck and HH.

Hears to hitting the front yard:cheers:

I bet you pop some more keepers out:clapping:

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..:,1055627,1055627#msg-1055627

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 much more meaningful than any amount of finds that end up in my pouch"

Cool finds, especially those relics. I found a buckle with a heart just like yours and was told it dated to Civil War era. I found it in S. Ohio where I also found a seated dime and some really old Indian Head cents. Keep digging those deep targets and I bet you're going to find some really old coins and other goodies. HH

Nice finds. For the most part, I have always found better keepers in the front yards. Good luck on your next visit and thanks for the post.


:minelab: Etrac - primary yard and park machine
Makro Racer 2 - primary old west sites, high iron trash,
:minelab: Sovereign GT - cruising old parks
:minelab: Equinox 800 - tbd
:tesoro: Bandido - backup old west sites, high iron trash.

enjoying the vistas and horizons of the Old West.
