COINS, TREASURE, and RELICS

This forum is dedicated to the hunting of coins and relics with a metal detector.


Coin and Relic Forum Rules

First off let me welcome you to the Nugget-Shooter Coin and relic Forum,

There are just a few rules here and yup I do enforce them and keep an eye on things as best I can. Here are a few guidelines I'd like you to follow if you will be participating here.

Vulgar and abusive language is not welcome here! Heck a cuss word to get a point across is not so bad, but I think you know what I mean.

I will not host public arguments and pissing matches between individuals here so please just don't do it. When it happens the post most times will simply vanish into cyber space.

Political posts are not permitted here and surly you can find other forums that host those discussions, I don't think anyone cares if you are Conservative or Liberal when we are out hunting gold nuggets.

You may not use this forum to advertise any other dealer, store, or product without written permission by owner at any time. Used items are allowed in the classified section.

This forum is not responsible for anything said by it's members at any time. This is a public forum and will remain so and although I can and will occasionally zap "bad content" I don't do it often and so far have never banned a person. Also opinions expressed here do not always represent the opinion of the forum's owner!

Guests are welcome to browse the forum and use the information provided by registered members, but you can not post yourself until you are a registered member.

That is pretty much it my fellow Nugget Shooters so enjoy the forum, keep it about metal detecting for coin and relic related subjects, and play nice.

    • I had a few set of boots and these got a couple hard years of use, and then very sporadic.  I knew they were falling apart, so mostly it was yardwork.  For Years the boot tacks or staples had been poking out, and I've had to get thicker and thicker padded inserts to keep the staples from cutting into my feet.  Also, the leather had started to separate from the sole in four or five places, and that's one of the reasons I took the duct tape out to the claim on the walkaround.  Because the metal eyelets, staples, and grommets set the metal detector off, these had never been my detecting boots.  Those were a tan set of boots that disappeared out of the back of my truck back in January when I went in to get gas.  I had a connection with the boots and was trying to get some use out of them as long as possible.  The black set in the photo was my first set of jump boots, and the tan set was the last set of jump boots.
    • If you do decide to purchase a metal detector, I wouldn't waste my time detecting farm fields. I would go visit the farms in your area and ask if they have any old rock piles. Years ago when farmers first settled the land, they often plowed up rocks which they put into piles off to the side somewhere on the farm. It's possible some of those rock piles contain meteorites since farmers didn't know what they were at the time. I would go with a Gold Bug 2 and the 10 inch coil only because I've had a lot of experience with it. But you might want to consider a multipurpose detector so you can hunt coins and relics as well.
