HELLO HUNTERS The water level is pretty low… I’m back at the river Rhine. I made this hunt late September 2016. Let’s go! First target. My orange pinpointer was still “there” at that time.. This is a deep one… I spent several minutes digging… I couldn’t reach it with my hand. I have to move on. I can’t waste all of my energy at the beginning (even if it’s a treasure ;). And no – I wouldn’t feel comfortable with a shovel. The beginning was very difficult. Coke. And something else. metal detectors for beginners Let’s clean it. Interesting… Hmm… what could it be… I will show you pictures at the end. Aluminum. This portion is usually covered with water. But the amount of trash and iron is very high. Looks like a buckle. What is that!? An animal! Unbelievable. I have to stroke it. It’s like a small cat. I think, I skip this target, he is probably scared. An old lid? It says “Knirps”. No it’s not a tiger. Just a piece of aluminum. I don’t like this signal. Hmm… Aluminum again. A tube. Coke. This is an old watchtower (14th century). And this must be “modern”. Trash. Leave me alone! I was lucky. It’s already out. Metal detecting is dangerous. Pull tab. Not again! Another animal. I will be careful. I think it was another piece of aluminum. It was time to change the “spot”. I was wondering, if I could break this concrete with my fist. No. I would have to concentrate ;). This really is a great spot to hunt, even with all this garbage lying around. A lead sinker. I had to move further. Where should I look. Garbage. I don’t know. Round iron? Nothing. Square something? Gold! Let’s see if there is any markings. Date – year: 56 333 – 8K But still… A small miracle. I’m very excited about this find. Am I doing underwater metal detecting now? I use my “special” Deus setup (I will put a link to it in the description). Sounds like bottle cap. It is one. Part from an oil lamp? (unfortunately I can’t find the link to a PDF, a viewer once send me…) Some sort of buckle. Silver! I think it says: “den Kameraden…” (“for the comrades…”?) I will show you a better picture at the end. I believe it is an aluminum button. Heavily corroded. homemade metal detectors (Unfortunately not the barrel of a gun ;). I try to avoid bigger targets. A pull tab. I would call it “cherry picking” at this stage. It’s a cogwheel. Time to go. It’s a good opportunity to clean the Deus. It is usually getting clean when it’s raining. Like new. Wow, now I could detect in a park. Some of the trash. The “good” stuff. Any ideas? Hmm… Gold ring. 333 – 8K Probably a wedding band.
