  OKie visiting Newcastle. Looking for Md buddies
Posted by: Okie - 10-16-2017, 02:27 PM - Forum: Let's Go Diggin'!!! - No Replies

Ladies and Gents,

I live in a small town in Oklahoma, USA.  Duncan has approx. 23,000 people.    I have been metal detecting for approx. 4-5 years, but due to my travel schedule at  work, I rarely get to go detecting.   I am traveling to Newcastle, UK for five weeks of training and will have weekends free. I will be there Oct 21 (late afternoon) until Nov. 25.   I plan on packing my Garrett ATPro.  I would like to meet up with some local hobbyist who would allow me to join them for some hunts, fill  me in on local MD laws, provide a place or two where I can detect, etc.

Feel free to email me at gds73533@hotmail.com    I am really looking forward to making new friends, digging in some old dirt and hopefully make a few nice finds. Smile

Wink 1st time ocean hunting
Posted by: I Dig VT - 10-12-2017, 08:47 PM - Forum: Metal Detecting: Beach and Water - No Replies

1st weekend of Oct I decided to take a trip to Hampton Beach.. Have never detected the
ocean with my CTX 3030 and hadn't been to Hampton in over 25 yrs..  Well it was an
experience.. I took more photo's than I found coins.. the size of the beaches up the coast
at low tide are overwhelming to a beginner trying this alone.. I can see where digging at
night with a headlamp might have it's good points.. I won't even tell you what my settings
were... other than "they weren't right" and I need a lightweight sand scoop if I'm going to do
this again..
Saturday was totally drenching till late afternoon.. but fun.. found clad coins, a 1994 Canadian
dollar and 1 earring on that rainy day, at Jenness State Beach... fast forward to Sunday, 13 hrs
later, sunny beautiful day, back at Jenness... 30 feet from where I found my 1st earring I
found the 2nd one with the same 12-5 ringtone.. couldn't believe it when I pulled it from the sand..
not that lucky at most things.. so now I have a cool pair of earrings.. also found prescription glasses
and a dog leash in great shape..

Will have to give it a second try sometime... and definitely look into saltwater settings... Not the
same I discovered as detecting in Lake Champlain lake water...

  Some silver jewelry and lots of clad from the beach

I went to Hampton Friday night, out detecting low tide in the dark for a couple hours, then hit Salisbury early Saturday morning.  Ended up with about $20 in clad, a silver ring, some single silver earrings, and my first PAIR of earrings, look like gold plated silver, and a stainless steel ring.  Also found a decayed Hopalong Cassidy toy gun, sinkers, and junk.  Weather was beautiful, lots of people out enjoying the beach.

  War of 1812 Militia Plate
Posted by: CTTodd - 09-19-2017, 09:02 PM - Forum: Treasures Found! - No Replies

Hello All
I hit this plate this summer in a field at over a foot down with a XP Deus. I'm pleased to have gotten it   I was not pleased with the shield being cut out of it. I'm told cutting out the shield was some sort of protest. Sometimes it pays to be lucky. HHunting.

Hi Guys 
I hit this Native American Kettle Point this summer in a hay field. These points are solid 1600s and were made from worn out trade items which is how they get their name.
