Out with the GMP

Post by LRB1975 » Sat Apr 05, 2014 8:48 pm

Well, today I went out for the first time with my GMP..infact, the first time out detecting in my life...
Had a really great day..although I mostly dug nails/any old iron as I have yet to learn the tones although it got better as the day went on. I did find one coin though, even if it was only a 1750 penny ( I think) and what appears to be the flight of a British 2 inch mortar bomb and a load of lead!
Thanks to Nofolk Craig who came out with me and gave me pointers, and I think he was pleased with me clearing the iron out of his way ;) Image

A 1750 penny for a first outing is a result in my eyes! :D

The oldest coin I've found so far is 1754 and you've beat that already.

Not a bad collection for your first outing ::g

I have a Goldmaxx V3, and like you used to dig a load of iron, especially big iron, until I started to learn the tones. I reckon within 6 months, you will be taking home, 25% of the weight that you did the first time lol.

What a great hobby though.

Good Luck for the future mate
