I’ve been using the excellent new NEL Big coil (it’s 15 x 17 inches, y’all!) in some of my civil war camp searches over the past few weeks in a successful attempt to sniff out fragments of friction primers (many are pictured on my Instagram feed.) But the reality is that the NEL coil is heavy (2.3
Dianna emailed me about having her rings missing in the back yard – but that her 3-year-old had told her pretty much where they were lost. “Behind the tree” she said. So that’s where I started looking. Running with my ring program on the Minelab E-trac, I turned the sensitivity down and low tones up. “Can slaw”
Silver, silver everywhere – live digs coinshooting silver on private property. E-trac lessons for two-tone ferrous at beautiful places. HD viewing mode recommended, I removed the fisheye effect, there’s lots of detail in the video. Detector sounds on 90% of the live digs. Many more live digs coming now that my GoPro is

I decided to hit a local town and do some freestyling. I drove around a bit in a historic area and ended up seeing a place with a beautiful big yard, dating from around 1830-1840. I built up the nerve and knocked on the door. The owner couldn’t be any nicer. He had bought the
At a church location from the 1830s, I found this designed flat button at around 5″ with the E-Trac. It rank up as a 12-44 and is a bit larger than a US Quarter. The shank is intact. There are no maker’s marks or writing on back. I’ve found plenty of flat buttons but
