  1. War of 1812 in Alta California? Please be Seated as this story unfolds...

    I attempted to capitalize on my success from our New Years Day hunt where my first coin of 2022 was a beautiful 1825 reale (https://www.treasurenet.com/threads/new-years-day-hunt-strikes-1825-silver.665308/). On that trip I removed a large section of brush that low and behold gave up several...

    Happy New Years!! Got out for a New Years Day hunt with TomCA and a friend of his, and everyone made some great finds! Tom hit a home run, but I'll let him share his good fortune. After seemingly endless rain, it was great to get out and detect with friends on New Years Day and see everyone...
  3. Nokta Legend First Look: Nokta Lengend Field Mode TID & Audio Check

    Nothing scientific, it's the first test I did on the Legend so I could get familiar with a variety of targets one could encounter when detecting in the U.S. I do a quick walk thru testing Field Mode in full tones on a variety of targets to check out the Target ID aka TID and audio...
  4. Early Western Frontier Site with epic finds!

    I was able to get a little detecting road-trip in with TomCA for some relic hunting at some early western frontier sites, and ended up having a great hunt! I ended up going sasquach through super heavy brush in search of the goods and it didn't disappoint! It may have been an all time record...

    Saying I had an epic weekend would be an understatement! I loaded the latest Equinox firmware update to try the new FE2/0 iron program, and it did not disappoint! I've posted about trip reports from this site several times over the years. It's always been a fun site IMO, you just never know...

  8. Extreme Detecting between storms of the decades OR Testing the 15" Equinox Coil

    Just returned home from a crazy road-trip. We had a work event in Las Vegas last week, and we had some equipment to haul in.The company said they'd pay my gas, so I decided to drive it, and take a few extra days off and go to one of my old Spanish trail sites to detect on my way home. What a...

    I haven't been getting to hunt as much as I'd like to this year as my wife and I had a baby girl in May.

  11. Need Help IDing a one piece 1820? Eagle Button

    Sorry if this is the wrong spot to post this, but it was either here or Civil war, and it's between the two. Last month I detected an old camp site in California. The site in general has history from the first part of the 1800's to the late 1800's, and we had dug some tongue and wreath eagle...
  12. Short Relic Hunt - ID HELP :) Possible 49er era buckle?

    Had some business to do out in the country over the weekend and hit a recommended spot that produced in the old days. It's been hard, hard hit, so hard hit it was left to wither away. I don't mind taking a crack at those kind of sites. At any rate, I gave it a try for a few hours and was...
  13. Short Relic Hunt w/the Equinox 800 Strikes Early US Silver !!!

    Tom and I got out for a few hours after work yesterday to one of his "back-pocket" spots that's been well worked the years. It's getting stingy with targets, but I still managed to get a few keepers, including the oldest seated dime I've found, as my previous oldest seateds were an 1840...

  15. EQ800 5th & 6th Hunts Field2 & Park2

    A little background on this particular "test" site that I take every machine to that I've owned over the past 12 years since I got my first detector. The site has both mineralized soil, and mild EMI, which some machines handle a LOT better than others. First I tried a Fisher C$ and Minelab...

  19. MAKRO MULTI KRUZER FIELD TEST FINDS BIG SPANISH SILVER :D

    Took a field trip to field test the new Makro Multi Kruzer on the Spanish Trail: I tested the 2-TONE, 3-TONE and 4-TONE search modes exclusively. Out of these three modes, the 4-TONE is hands down the hottest, with 2-TONE and 3-TONE about tied. 4-TONE is extra sparky, and does it LOVE...

    Dilek at Makro has given the go ahead to share field test information on the new Makro Kruzer series. I was asked to field test the Makro Multi Kruzer. I only received the detector last week, so I've been working hard to test the machine as much as possible at various sites (salt water...
