    Some older hunts and treasures vid

    made a slide show with some older finds - just plucked pics from some of my older folders
    just a sample mostly from between 2001 thru 2010 - don't have many pics from pre 2000
    wish I had pics of finds from my early years - been detecting since 1975 age 12
    only have a few choice coins from the old days

    I don't think so - NH waters are like 2 1/2 - 3 hrs away from me
    I have not been up that way in yrs - there are a ton of guys in a small area on the coast up there
    there are guys that go out like every day - so tough for a guy like me to travel that far into an area I
    don't know
    Funny when I was a teen - we would go up there for a week and most times my father and grandfather were the only
    detectorists around on the beaches - now ...there are beaches I can take you to in the summer and there can be
    like 25 guys and gals hunting - not my kind of scene
    plus lot of beaches up there - tides go out 100s of yards so land hunters can hunt too
    Im a water guy - I want to step off the shore and be chest deep
    1KBlueTuber (Ron) probably does

    Ah I didn't realise you were that far away Don. I guess it's like one of you guys saying do I know John from London, lol. Wow those beaches get pounded then, I understand what you mean. I know you are a water guy, I will be trying that approach over here, once the water warms up a little! I have never seen anyone here hunt over ankle deep.

    Great video! Wish I had started this hobby at age 12. How accurate were the old detectors?

    I started out in 1975 with a Compass TR machine - they sold for like $129 i think - got mine used for I think $99
    it had 2 knobs - one turn on and off/volume - the other sensitivity
    I used to crank up the hum and go for the slightest fluctuation in sound - I did great once I learned my machine
    alomost gave up after my first year - found almost nothing but after the snow melted in 1976 - I decided to hit
    my lawn which dated back to around 1939 - i started finding all kinds of coins and then silver
    i would go out day after day and then started to grid - then started to slow down and go for the faint sounds
    i found quite a bit and learned my machine - i actually found my first LC in my yard - it had been hit by a musket ball
    found out that years ago there was a town farm on the site - after that i was competing with the big boys on club hunts
    i could hunt with guys with $500+ machines and find just as much and at time out shoot them
    many of them would crank their discrim. and they would missed stuff - the older machine would throw out nickels
    and white gold in pull tab mode - was i think around 17 when i showed up day late and dollar short at a drained ponds beach
    looked like an artillery range - about 30 guys had been there - i went out with my non discriminating machine and started finding nickels they
    all passed up - eventually i got a what we call a pre-engagement ring with 2 little diamond chips / white gold - then got a white gold wedding band
    right where everyone of them came onto the beach and left it - MY machine back then would pick up a silver dime at maybe 6+ inches - it had
    a solid coil and had a nipple in the middle - you could put your finger over that nipple after getting a hit and stick a screw driver in where your
    finger was and hit your target - they were accurate - i was always told that i had what we used to cal a "hot" machine - this meant
    that it was better than others of the same make and model - i have not heard that term used with most of the modern machines.
    I can tell you - i own 3 CZ21s - my #1 is hotter and works better than the other 2 - its my primary machine for old areas
    I have a #2 as my back up it is better than my #3 - number 3 is a good machine but can not get as much depth out of it as the other two
    it is great for fresh drops - i have sent #2 and 3 in to see if they could tweek them - got them back the same
    Motto = "I try to hit where others cant or others wont "
