Tip & How-To about Retail Supplies

Dig out your own treasure

Some people wrongly consider "treasure hunting" with the use of a metal detector, as a potential source of enrichment. However, as almost all metal detector treasure hunters will testify, this activity is almost completely of an entertaining nature and rarely brings any real valuables.

All metal detectors can be set to detect different levels of signals coming from the metals, buried underground. According to its settings, the metal detector finds bigger or smaller objects, of different metals, buried deeper or more superficially. What most people aim for is gold. Lost rings or chains, old gold coins etc.

Coins are the most common "treasures" found with metal detectors.
They can be found more or less easily both on beaches or buried in fields. In the latter case, it's easier to find older coins rather than modern ones; witnesses of history, lost in more or less ancient times. Many metal detector hobbyists like collecting them as historical tokens, engraved with images and scriptures from the past.

On the other hand, beaches are abundant with modern coins that people lose, for example, when dropping the wallet in the sand, or when shaking the towel, forgetting they had been hiding money or jewelery in it.

Rings are also often lost in the water and washed ashore by the waves.
Therefore, the two places on the beach that may prove the most fruitful, are the round-shaped areas where the waves touch, especially at their tip, and the farthest outskirts of the beach, where people usually set their towels and belongings, and where they are likely to shake off their towel, dropping "treasures".

Good luck!

how do i set my green youth metal detector to only to coins


u cant set these for only COINS but u can use the u can exclude unwanted or limit these with the anolog controller settings.. it can be good and bad though..if u set it to discriminate to high..u will then take the chance of excluding smaller items.. to low and u then get cross signal issues and dig up lots of junk.. best to learn the way it behaves with diff kinds of metals and at diff depts so u dont miss out on that one chance to hit it big..





When out hunting with a metal detector, you could come across more junk than treasure. You may detect and dig up rusty nails and bottle caps in the hope of finding coins or other valuables. To resolve this issue, most detectors are equipped with a discriminator. Setting the discrimination level allows you to distinguish between good and bad tones when hunting for specific metallic objects. One of the most effective ways to use your discriminator is with a technique known as reverse discrimination.

Get a good quality metal detectors would make only 50% of your task. Only by adding accessories to
the Executive setting could be improved. A good pair of headphones, SIP, carrying pouch and a
few of the components should be obtained for any treasure hunter. You'll find audio equipment,
as well as that might help you capture even faint sounds.

I still think you can't rely too much on metal detector. Well, metal detecting is far more difficult than you think. Besides owning a good metal detector, the most important thing is that you should be very patient. Because you will find much more scraps than treasures.
