Tip & How-To about Retail Supplies
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".

Take a look
at the Indepth Info Site - they have a fairly basic explanation but with a diagram
that might help. But you're right - metal detectors are fascinating!
