Yes use a detector, but not only for coins, also for other artifacts, and there is enough to find, during the years I have found enough to fill a few vitrines

Becouse I live here right next to the river Waal, stuff from up-stream, as far as from Germany can be found here at the riverside, already made some "interresting" findings, roman coins, and medival stuff, it's only a pitty that it's not allowed to search at fields annymore, a nice hobby was scr... up by guys who diddn't follow the rules.

I have metal detected for more than 20 years, as much as I enjoy finding items from the past, the research is a blast, the things that a person can turn up for any area, are amazing !!!

I have been to 3 different civil war site's this week. I have found 15 better coin's and lot's of relic's. I even found a few arrowhead's, while digging up my find. I guess it pay's to have layer's of history all in the same area

Hey Susan and Bobby. Any chance of a seperate spot for metal detecting? I know of only one other numismatic msg board forum that has one. Also, I haven't metal detected yet but I'm getting ready to. I've been checking out https://www.goldsheetlinks.com it is a sister site to https://www.coinsheetlinks.com

I wondered if anyone could recommend a good detector to buy. Is the technology good enough now that a single detector is equally good for artifacts, silver and gold, or are separate detectors for each a good idea. Besides coins, here in the Southwest I might like to look for some gold nuggets. Thanks in advance for any replies; gone for a couple of days.

Hi Adobero

There are a lot of good detectors on the market these days, For me Its always been whites !!

and yes one detector can be used for both coin shooting and relics, Gold ,, take a look at the white MXT or XLT, with target ID , and changable coils .

Where abouts in the southwest are you ?

There is gold in them Hills !!!

Metalman, I'm in north-central Arizona, but after looking at your scan, I may be forced to consider relocation to NM! Thanks for the info.

Carl, thanks for the recommendations. I might do a little shopping. (after gas prices drop)(wishful thinking)
