Beach ring

Long time ago..
I finally went to the coast again.. Not to detect but to visit my friend I hadn’t seen for a long time. I didn’t expect much of the beach and so it happened. Almost no targets so the sand had been blown on top of the beach :/ But I did find 2 rings, and one was some brand which is stainless steel but nonetheless it would still cost 60-90 dollar for that. People are weird lol. THen another junk ring, with some oxidation and too light to be real. I left it in my finds pouch (also called ‘my disappointments bag’) and only retrieved it 2 days ago after my trip to the field.
And at home i could see a small lasered ‘925’ inside so i thought ‘woops, for a month i thought i had found nothing at all’. I did find 10 cent but that was it after 2 days.
So yay a thin silver ring from the high waterline.

I did go detecting on Saturday when the sun was finally out. The sun is a very rare element nowadays. Well since end of October or so we are in crap weather. Lots of clouds and rain and cold. No weather to go detecting for me, although last year I went in near freeezing temps with my astronauts custome. Now i just couldn’t be bothered anymore to go through all the challenges and not find much. It did really wear off.. The feeling of having to go out to detect was gone. And now I only went to have some outdoor exercise.. which I got for sure as the clay was sticking to my feet and shovel all the time in the ploughed field. I went around for 1.5hr, cursing the new Deus and the mud and the lack of any decent signals that weren’t iron or aluminium. I really don’t want to use the new Deus on anything else but playground (maybe) and beach. And beach i say because i sold all of my old multifreq Minelabs. I did get annoyed with the cable issues.
I just don’t know what to do with this Deus. THey all say you gotta learn the machine. Yeah well I can’t be arsed. I rather find nothing with a machine that I understand that fing nothing with a machine I have serious doubts about: I got nothing but bad (low/iron) tones. Whenever the rare event occurred of a nice higher tone, it was either deep or superficial rusty iron, or aluminium or lead. I mean the fields are bad. What am I supposed to do with an expensive detector if my fields all turned bad. I can’t go to the second favorite batch of fields Like THat anymore cos they put a concrete block on the road to keep away cars in rural area :/ It’s really killing my motivation. I can now go by foot to see all the fields.
THe best field has some grass in it and i didn’t find much anyway. I don’t know..
My luck evaporated or so.

Some good finds

For ALL Summer, there was no detecting because Too Hard soil and also, all fields were occupied. As soon as the grain was harvested from my best field, I went there and it gave only a few targets with all the stubble. Went abck after the stubble was ploughed, again to find near nothing. I also went withmy female buddy and it rained for one and a half hour. I was SO FED up and she also didn’t want to bring me home, so there went most of my motivation to detect ever again with her and/or in the rain :p

All of September was pretty bad weather and it rained a lot which makes the soil a bit better. Most of fields have been filled again with seeds because this is how the goverment wants it .. the plants take out nitrogen or whatever from the soil. My best fields have been filled up again and I didn’t even go on the other one when the beets were harvested.. What a bad idea to quit detecting huh :p now I started again beaue I had a week off from work. I never go detecting when I have only a weekend, because there’s so much to do in that small timeframe off of work/not being too tired after work. Sigh.
I thought I’d have multiple weeks off but apprently i start again this week.

One field on the corner gave me the occasional good find, like a nice whole buckle and well.. I think a silver coin once with nothing left on it. Some medieval buttons.. Keep finding the same square button with some rudimentary flower made with scratching. This coin and maybe a piece of brooch of a rare time period to find stuff from came from this field. THe coin is in very good shape considering its age.. Most coins of 150 yrs old are rotten. This one is 400 yrs old ^^

The sword pommel is from the field that’s closest to my house. It’s said to be Roman but I never found anything old on it, or even worth mentioning. This pommel is the first good find actually. I just went there because it’s very close and I didn’t know where else to go ..

I’m using some Sony headphones with cable now and I ordered a used WSA big headcups so at least the cable will be gone. Never used the big headphones of XP but since I had the WS5 of the old XP Deus, I kinda got the hint that it might actually enhance the hearing.
Using program 2 Sens with slight mods..Because I modified my first deus II too much, I guess, and now I’m careful. THe fulltones and low disc gives the iron sound, and withthe 3tones I will be digging more iron than anything else. So back to the high pitched fulltones again.. I hope to put my ws6 puck on the shaft so I can watch the ID again, just like the old times :p Just like to know what might be popping up before hand. Don’t know why..
