I decided to take my cheap detector in my woods for a quick hunt. I got three items one being a small glass container which I think is an ink well,but not for sure. Also a large zinc piece that says Dexter Curtis Star Collar Pad no. 7. Which I think was patented in 1870 and a american eagle 16 gauge, thanks for looking I am trying to convince my wife to let me upgrade my detector from the one see bought me to minelab exterra 305.

Nice.. cheap detectors work well too. Just as much digging as a "high end" detector if you want to find the good stuff.

My suggestion would be to use the machine you have now for awhile and be sure you really enjoy the hobby. If after a period of time you are still having fun then consider purchasing a new machine. You can make great finds with the machine you have currently if you're willing to put in the time to do some research and find good places to hunt.

Oh i love the hobby I have had this for over a year. I have a bounty hunter quicksilver large objects it goes 2 feet but normal coins only goes 6 inches deep. I have researched the time out of minelab exterra 305 and that is the machine for me in my range. I dont have to look far for a good hunting place my house and property is 1888 and the town was established in 1824 Thanks for the info though

i also bought a cheaper detector (BH tracker) last year. I have found quite a bit with it and now my wife is starting to get interested in detecting as well so i guess that gives me a reason to go buy myself a new one and give her the old one.

I wonder if that bottle could be a mucilage bottle.

I dont know apparently my property is all made of sand and my neighbors said they used to be a quicksand area. They all used to throw old bottles in there and watch them sink. When it rains alot i find different bottles like that bottle and this one

Well thanks, and yes I did always fun to detect no matter what I find. Although with this detector apparently all old nails tend to be in my bag oh well getting rid of trash.

Ain't it the truth.
Sometimes you dig even more because you get more and deeper hits.

Nothing wrong with the BH Tracker. I've found lots of great stuff with mine, silver coins, gold& silver jewelry and tons and tons of clad and misc. items. I love that thing. Cost me 30 bucks and paid for itself in the 1st 15 minutes of using it when I dug up a small 10K band.
