  1. ๐Ÿฅ‡ BANNER Still Shaking...1662 Massachusetts Oak Tree Twopence

    Greetings! I'll keep this short. I returned to a section of woods where I recently found a William iii halfpenny and a nicely gilded Navy button. I hunted for about three hours without much to show for my efforts. I hit a reasonable signal along side a stream...not a great signal, but I figured...
  2. A Nice Civil War era Navy button

    Greetings Fellow T- Netters, I had an enjoyable hunt on Friday which turned up a nice variety of interesting finds The highlights of the day were a gilded civil war era ( I think...) Navy button, and what I believe to be a William iii half penny. The button cleaned up well, and is marked "...
  3. Need help trouble-shooting issue with my control unit

    Greetings All, I'm having an issue with my control unit on my XP Deus 1, and could use some guidance. I purchased my XP Deus in 2018, and have logged about 1200 hours. On my last couple of hunts my control unit screen goes blank after only 1.5 hours of operation on a full charge. The only thing...
  4. Christmas Came a Little Early...LC's, Spanish Silver and Gold

    Yesterday was a hunt to remember! Things started off with a bang ( a golden one), and only got better from there. I was off in a section of woods where I recently found a Barber and Seated quarter. My first signal of the day turned out to be a big, beautiful gold class ring...Texas A & M- 1986...

  6. Finally a Good Hunt

    It's been a while since I've dug up anything " post worthy". Today turned out to be the exception. It was a beautiful Fall afternoon here in New England. I was able to wrap up work early, and headed out to a section of woods that has produced some colonial finds in the past. The first decent...
  7. On the Board for October with a trio of silvers

    Greetings from a damp Massachusetts. I was able to get out on Sunday for a few hours. Checked out a new spot along a river. I had high hopes, but they were quickly dashed...Seems like this area had been used as a dump over the years. No decent targets. Oh well. My second site was along a wooded...
  8. A couple of interesting military pins

    Greetings T-Net Nation! I came across these military pins on a hunt yesterday. They both came out of the same hole on a property that dates back to the mid 1800's The rest of my trip was less productive, but did manage a 1901 IHP and a toasty V Nickel If anyone is familiar with these...
  9. New Ground vs. Old Ground

    Greetings All- Despite epic quantities of thirsty mosquitoes, I have continued my efforts to locate and detect colonial era sites. On Saturday I went to a new spot, and spent five hours exploring the woods along a local river. I found the usual assortment of lead and trash, but nothing of any...
  10. Another Shoe Buckle for the Collection

    Greetings All! We have had crazy amounts of rain here in Massachusetts this month. That's been great for the mushroom population, but has made detecting a much more soggy experience. I was able to get out yesterday for a few hours. Highlights from this hunt were an intact shoe buckle, a...
  11. An odd little piece

    Found this while hunting in the woods on Sunday. It looks like a tiny pair of binoculars... but that ain't it! It measures 1'' x 1.5 '' and appears to be made of brass. The larger openings are threaded. This one has me puzzled. Any guesses are welcome. Thanks for looking and HH!
  12. A Relaxing ( and rewarding) Stroll in the Woods

  13. Some recent colonial era finds

    It's been my goal this year to target older sites where I have a shot at finding colonial era coins and relics. So far, so good. Over the past couple of hunts ( 5/13 & 5/17) I've been paying more attention to an overgrown field that has previously produced a shoe buckle and an older US LC...
  14. Only found one coin- super slick half reale

    If you can only find one coin during a 2 hour hunt, it might as well be a reale. Sadly, my specimen is very worn. No date visible, but I believe its a Carlos III half reale. Also came across an interesting gold plated pin Happy hunting all, That's for taking a look.
  15. Barber Heavy Coin Spill Saves the Day!

    For whatever reason, deer seem to bring me good luck. After chatting with this fellow and some of his friends I came across a Barber pocket spill out in the woods: The pocket spill consisted of two IHP's ( 1897 and 1902), a 1906-D Barber quarter, and two Barber dimes (1906 and 1902-O). They...
  16. Two year Seated Liberty slump ends with a dime trifecta- plus!

    Greetings All, I've been working hard at trying to find and detect new ground. I had a limited window this afternoon, and headed out to an area that I knew, but had not thoroughly explored. I'm happy to report that I came across a small section of woods near an old structure that clearly had...

  18. New Spot...Capped Bust dime!

    Greetings All, Tried out a new wooded spot about 25 miles from home. Looked promising, with a series of old stone walls and walking paths. First targets looked good: Then things went very quiet for about an hour. Finally came across a good signal. Turned out to be really good! After...
  19. Some interesting relics, and a silver finish

    Greetings all, Had a fun hunt, recovering a couple of nice relics. The barrel skeleton key came first, followed by the rather ornate buckle. Both keepers in my book. If anyone has thoughts about the age of the buckle, please share. Finished off this hunt with a 1902 IHP, and a 1941...
  20. A very good day: Spanish in the snow!

    Some rain and warmer temperatures in eastern Massachusetts has helped to melt some of our snow, and make detecting possible again. I was able to get out for a couple of hours this morning, and took my time re-covering the area that produced a William & Mary half penny back in January. Good...
