Happy VICTORY DAY to all of us and especially to all veterans of the WWII who is still with us! Their generation paid a huge human price - millions of lives, to defeat Nazism/Fascism and make sure that all following generations - all of us now, would live in peace and freedom! Hats off to heroes of World War 2!

We Finally Opened a New Season 2017!

Irina and I have been metal detecting the hammered coins together since 2009, and this is our 6th season using the XP Deus metal detectors.

Finally the weather brought us an ideal day for metal detecting: lots of sunshine, temperature around 8C (48F) and almost dry farm fields. Not to miss such a great opportunity to start a new season, we decided to drive to a huge farm field nearby and productively spend three hours of free time we had.

Of course, when we arrived at the field, we unfolded our outdoor chairs and began our endless tea session as we always do before turning metal detectors on. Well, while I was trying to remember how to turn my Deus headphones on (five long months of winter... and I forgot how to do it!), Irina was already detecting (photo #2).

You could guess it, of course, she was the first to find a hammered coin as usual (photo #5); thus, officially opening the new season 2017! Then her coin discovery was followed by traditional ritual dancing (photos #3 and #4), and face sunbathing after that (photo #6).

I finally got my Deus working and found my first hammered silver coin of this season (photos #7, #8) too! I put the coin into my special coin container which has been with me since 2000, and never failed to bring me luck! :) Then I kicked the dirt for another 20 minutes and got my second hammered coin (photos #10, #11).

After that Irina and I had our dinner (yup, with a very long tea session afterwards!) sitting on our folding chairs while enjoying the evening (photo #12) and looking forward to our next metal detecting endeavors (photo #13 - "Irina and Lots of Farm Land... With Hammered Coins!" :)).

In total, we got three hammered silver coins - the Early Russian hammered coins called "wire money", ca. 1613-23 (last photo). The season opening couldn't be better than that! Happy hunting to all of us guys!

I set up a "Donate" button on my Home page - http://www.metaldetectingworld.com/index.shtml for those who have already visited my website many times and obtained helpful info, learned something new, or received answers to their questions related to metal detecting, and would like to contribute. Please donate whatever you can because I'm literally running out of money while getting close to accomplishing a gargantuan task -
reconstructing my website to be mobile friendly and easier to navigate - namely rebuilding over 2,000 pages from the scratch! After helping many detectorists with free, useful information for over a decade, I believe I've got a right to ask for help in return. And it's not really too much to ask. I would appreciate any contribution you make! Thank you for your help and understanding! And Happy Metal Detecting Season 2017 to ALL!

I modified and updated my old article - "Hot Rocks: How To Identify & Eliminate Their False Signals" which now contains FIVE pages instead of one, and all in-depth useful information on Hot Rocks, their Types and how to ID and reduce, if not eliminate, their false-metallic signals. My article also includes info on 1) downsides of using Automatic Ground Balance and Automatic/Semi-Automatic modes, 2) Conductive Wet Salts, and 3) use of Positive & Negative Offsets of detector's Ground balance.
