My first gold found with a metal detector
Searching with a metal detector is an activity cooler than a lottery. Every time you take a metal detector in your hands, you hope to find something, and you know that you will find something, but what exactly? Will there be a lot of rubbish again, or finally something interesting? You will never know beforehand.
On that day, I agreed to go to the excavation with my friend, at 6 o’clock in the morning we were supposed to meet, but to my surprise, I overslept … Our idea almost collapsed …In a hurry, I ran out of the house, not even having breakfast.
The weather outside was not the best, there was a light rain, everywhere there was a swamp – not the best day for searching with a metal detector. To be honest, I wanted to stay at home and get some sleep. But something drew me to the excavation.
On the way, I ate a few candies, that’s all I had in a day, not that much, is it?:)
Searching with a metal detector
It kept raining, the forest was very humid and stuffy. Difficult search conditions. The first find, oddly enough, was a 5 kopeck coin from 1957. Not a bad start! Then the standard set began – German Mauser sleeves, aluminum vodka corks and shrapnel.
I did not take photos as my hands were very dirty and the rain did not stop.
Suddenly I heard a good signal from the metal detector! I started digging. Several strokes of the shovel, and in front of me lay a shot shell!
After that I found over 50 corks and a few coins. Not a very comforting result.
Suddenly, near the road, I heard a good signal. Without much enthusiasm, I started digging, expecting to see another cork.
But what did I see! It was a ring!
I did not attach much importance to this find, thinking that this was just another costume jewelry. But still I decided to see if there were any stamps on the ring?
And then my heartbeat quickened. The ring was gold !!!
I couldn’t believe my eyes. The first time I found gold with a metal detector! Out of emotion, I began to dig signals nearby, but only garbage remained.
As a result, that day brought me some coins and the first gold!
Friends, leave less trash after yourself, and more such finds for me:
