  1. Old excalibur coil wore deterioration

    Old excalibur coil wire deterioration Recently pulled my old original Excalibur Sword model that has been in storage a few years. This one had a 10" tornado coil installed before I bought it. I have pulled it out only to charge the battery over the years. Gave it a good charge, cleaned it...
  2. Tesoro Part

    So I have had many other things going on the last few years and I have not done any detecting at all. Things are getting simpler and I want to get back out plus my son is showing an interest. I pulled out my Tesoro Cibola and remembered the battery compartment door has a problem and needed to...
  3. Hardee Hat Pin

    Today in Eastern NC was very windy and cool. Good thing about it is the high winds blew the river out exposing the river bottom. I braved the wind and cold and was rewarded with this nice Hardee Hat Pin. I haven't been doing much detecting for awhile, so this was a nice way to get back into it.
  4. Minelab Excalibur Problem

    I have an old Excalibur Sword model that has always worked flawlessly, but today it stated giving me problems. I had been detecting for about an hour and started working the waters edge about a foot out. Suddenly the threshold got very loud and out of control. After that started it would not...
  5. Found a neat Button

    Today we had a strong westerly wind here in eastern NC which pushed the river water out and exposed the river bottom. I was able to leave work a couple of hours early and do some detecting. I found a few mini balls and some colonial buttons as I do most times I hit this area. I did find one...
  6. Found a neat buckle today

    I have been so busy lately that detecting just has not been possible. Today I was able to get back out, though. The river in front of me is finally getting warm enough to get deep in. I waded with my Excalibur (Sword Model) and it paid off. I found this buckle. I have never found one like this...
  7. 1856 Half Dime

    I got out with my modded Cibola for a couple of hours this afternoon and found a few miniballs, but the highlight was this 1856 half dime. This is an area I have found numerous civil war items. I was trying to think outside the box and decided to detect on the side of a step hill. My logic was...
  8. Any Idea What These Are?

    I found both of these wading in the water with my Excal. In this same area I have found numerous mini balls and a few other civil war items. I have no idea what these are though. They are a little different, but similar. I'm not sure if they are civil war related or something completely...
  9. Indian Head Penny Question

    I found an Indian Head Penny while detecting in the river recently and I am trying to get some information on it. I am in the process of lightly cleaning it to bring out the date. It looks to be an 1860. What is confusing me is it does not seem to be copper. It looks like gold. Were these made...
  10. Found My First Breast Plate

    Today my modded Cibola found my first breast plate. It may not be the prettiest one around, but I have been wanting to find one for a long time and today I finally scored. :hello2:
  11. Excalibur and Sovereign GT for Civil war items

    I currrently river hunt in a brackish river where the salinity can fluctuate quite a bit. My current detector does alright, but I am thinking the conditions warrant getting something different. I was looking at the Excalibur or the Sovereign GT (I don't go over waist deep). I know these are...
  12. Tiger Shark Silicone Grease

    I searched to try and get a definite answer to this, but I could not find anything certain so I decided to start a thread. Can plumbers silicone grease be used for the Tiger Shark? I bought a used Tiger(Used but never been used) and it did not come with any silicone grease. I called Tesoro and...
  13. Tiger Shark Ground Balance Question

    I recently bought a Tiger shark and have a question about ground balancing it. I have no problem doing it on land and can easily set it where the threshold remains constant in all metal fast when quickly lowering the coil. My question is (This may be a dumb question but I want to know for sure)...
