This tiny Viking pendant found by a deteector hobbyist could rewrite history
Here is the link for the article that will tell you how..
Robert H. wanted to clarify about the ring that came up like a penny on the CTX. He added the following.
The sound came up like a penny on the CTX with that gold ring yesterday but a different number meaning the CTX is pretty accurate when it comes to determining targets. I knew it was going to be something different other than a penny because of the odd number on the ID. If it were the same number as the penny comes up I would have passed it knowing I didn't skip more than a penny.
In response to my post on why I dig pennies, Bill P. wrote to say, Copper pennies have close to 2 cents worth of copper in them too, 1982 and older I believe...95% copper.
That is another good reason. I always heard that if you watch the pennies the dollars will take care of themselves. I believe that is true, but it is also a broader statement about taking care of details. I certainly do understand that if you are hunting modern stuff on a beach where there is a lot of competition, you might need the advantage of trying to cherry pick the higher value targets. .
There are additional reasons I didn't mention. One is that I can't see detecting the same targets time after time when I visit the same locations. That won't happen if you are in an area where a lot of people detect, but I don't do that much either. I tend to find my own holes. That was my specialty when I was hunting modern stuff. Believe it or not there are still very productive holes that are in places that are almost never detected.
Also if I detect an area frequently, I prefer to clean it up. There is a bit of a environmentalist element to it. I don't like to leave beaches or other areas littered, and I like the idea of recycling copper, aluminum or whatever can be recycled.
P. Bishop wrote and said, After reading your article on 3-15-16, I decided to check some of the targets that nulled ( I was hunting in discriminate mode ) out on my detector. This is what I found when I checked one of the targets, after minimal cleaning, a fully functional lock blade knife. Thanks.

IT looks like we'll have something around a two-foot surf on the Treasure Coast for several days.
I hope to get out on the beach again someday soon. Haven't been able to get out for a while.
