    HELP Burlington Co NJ

    Hello! We need advice on what detector can do a large area fast.

    My elderly neighbor is allowing us to search for & keep 2 generations of buried coins, jewelry, ect buried at multiple locations throughout her property. Her husband & father in law buried jars of stuff for decades. Probably over a century.

    Its kind of a funny story. I go to her home weekly to help her out & take her shopping. I was complaining that my hubby wasted $25 on a metal detector. That's when she told me about the buried jars & said we could keep them if we find them!

    She lives on about 15 acres that is mostly cleared ground. She is aware of & has watched him bury the stuff while she washed dishes.

    My husband has been looking with a metal detector that he got at a yard sale for $25 but hasn't found anything. He thinks the stuff is buried deeper than what the detector can detect.

    Any suggestions on what detector to buy?

    Maybe some trustworthy locals could help detect?

    I would suggest contacting Big Boy's Hobbies, or Kellyco for advice from an experienced salesperson.

    Good luck searching...:

    I'm game for a try, but not sure how deep I could locate a jar full of coins.

    Chris that's the problem we don't know how deep. The property was farmed when he was alive. I'm assuming that he was smart enough to dig deep enough so the farm equipment didn't unearth or break the jars.

    Is there an average depth that farmers turn the soil over?

    Well that is a very good detector and will go about as deep as any VLF detector... But a PI detector will go deeper than a VLF detector so could be you want to get a PI detector....................If you think it is real deep you might want to go with a 2 box detector

    If I was looking for something the size of a buried jar of coins of unknown depth . . . but assume over three feet . . . I would go with a Fisher Gemini III Two Box detector.

    If it's below the plow line than that's about 18 in.

    Thanks RJ!

    I'm sure all of the jars are below the plow line. But I wonder how far below?

    I guess any decent detector would detect a mass at 24 to 36 inches?

    nope....24 to 36" is really deep for most of the equipment most of us use.Ground penetrating radar would have no trouble though.Try to rent(dont know if possible)oor hire machine with operator.sometimes ya gotta believe enough to put out a little to hit it big.
    I dont care which machine you use...you're gonna dig trash.
    an extra thousand bucks aint gonna solve that.
