After wandering for about 30 minutes I found just one 2 kopeck coin dated 1931. I wanted to move from that spot but suddenly there came a signal sounding like a bottle cap. I started digging and could not believe my eyes…
Hello fellow detectorists,
Metal detecting season is now in full swing, nevertheless I had to go to the village last weekend as my relatives needed my help. All my detecting pals called me and invited to go treasure hunting, but I could not… Anyway I decided to put my machine into the backpack when going to the countryside, hoping that maybe I could find an hour or two for my hobby. And on Saturday I really got an opportunity to go out till 10 a.m. I was planning to wake up at 5 a.m. but maybe because of the fresh air I slept longer and got up at 8 o’clock in the morning. I realized that I overslept, quickly drank a cup of coffee and jumped into the car as less than 2 hours remained for my metal detecting. I rushed to promising kitchen gardens, but damn, dry corn plants were still not removed from there. On my way I noticed a plowed kitchen garden and a burned out meadow.
And it was a good decision to stop there. After wandering for about 30 minutes I found just one 2 kopeck coin dated 1931. I wanted to move from that spot but suddenly there came a signal sounding like a bottle cap. I started digging and could not believe my eyes… I found a medal, my first ever! I was so happy! You can view the photos.
My first signal and the Soviet coin recovered:
And then a “bottle cap” turns out to be an amazing medal:
I rinsed it with mineral water.
And that was all. It was time to return. I decided to come back there again in the evening to scan the burned-out meadows. So I worked hard all day long and finally got very little time for metal detecting again. I returned to the meadows, started digging and out jumped a copper kopeck coin of Nicholas.
Then there came a weight piece.
I decided to move to another spot.
It got dark fast. It was time to go home.
Summing up my finds:
Time to go home:
This is my spare shovel:
The next morning I woke up and ran to the car to have a look at my finds. They looked so nice in the rays of the morning sun that I could not help myself, and I asked my relatives to let me go detecting again. Maybe I behaved like a little child. But I promised them honestly to search just for an hour or two, and then to go back home.
Oh, poor coin!
Two Nicholas kopeck coins found in one hole:
Well, a photo summing up the results of that day:
And here is the 2 days’ result:
Thanks to those who read my report and viewed the photos. Good luck to everyone! I hope you will make lots of good finds soon!
The author of the report used the Minelab X-Terra 705 metal detector with a Mars Tiger coil.
