Fisher f22 coins and WW2 Worry

Post by Slo » Sun Feb 24, 2019 9:51 am

Hello!

I am new to this forum and i want to start metal detecting. I am looking at fisher f22(my budget is 300€) and i like it, but is it good for roman stuff,specialy roman coins? I am afraid that the coins are too small and too deep to detect them. I would search in forest and on meadow, and i dont know how deep can be roman coins there. I would look nearby roman graveyard (in radius 1-2 kilometers) and small roman village. Is fisher f22 good enough for these things?


I need another advice. In that area there was during WW2 brutal war,and civil war, and iam scared of bombs and granates, is there any posibble way not to dig them? Maybe if i notch out iron?

Sorry for my bad english and greetings from cold and sunny south-central europe ::g

Hi and welcome to the Forum. I think your English is very good, even better than some of ours =P~ I cannot advise you on munitions but some of our members specialise in this area so keep checking as I'm sure you will get plenty of advice. Good luck

The F22 from what I`ve read on it ,seems to be a capable little detector . What depths it will detect to is dependable on a few things. 1st ,Soil conditions ie, whether the soil your digging in is Highly mineralised or not , if its clean soil ,or soil with a lot of Iron present in it.
2nd , if where your searching has a lot of electro magnetic conductivity in the atmosphere , ie, Electricity Pylons, Electricity Sub stations near by , or small Electricity poles carrying electric current.In other words anything that will affect your detector working to its best ability.

You`ll never know if your missing coins at deeper depths because how can you if you don`t detect them ? Its one of those questions you`d only know if some one with you had another detector that was finding them but if you tried over the same signal and it was not being detected then you`d know you were missing certain targets if that target turns out to be a coin.
Your worry about digging up old munitions is feasible because an item such as a grenade or bigger cannot be discriminated out as its too large an object. But your detector will show signs that its large Iron by spitting and growling and not be a short sharp good sounding signal in your earphones OR giving a Very large loud sound which in time you would recognise as almost certainly iron,but targets often can be assessed by their size. In other words the sound of a coin will be a very short detection area and quite small blips ,were as a large target such as a grenade would be quite a loud sounding and have a large area of detection area ,so its all about assessing your target once contacted if your in an area where munitions could be present. Have no fear anyway because if you hit an explosive you`ll probably never knew you had. :)) The likelihood of large bombs is pretty remote though you could come across mortar rounds but the only way to go about it ,is dig carefully if you have a large target or get out the area. another tip is to lift the coil say a foot above the loud sounding target and if your still picking it up its pretty often its large rusty Iron .

Thanks.

I am going to order my f22 today. Location is on former border of nazi germany and fascist italy, but it is in hills so i guess there were no tanks or heavy bombing from air, i expect mostly hand granates and anti-infatry mines so i hope the signals will be clearly enough for me. I hope i will find some good medieval or roman finds (hope for gold lol),yeah i know these finds are rare specialy in area with that small population.

Thanks again for anwser.
