Get ready to dig into chilling stories from America’s past with Diggers’ KG and Ringy tonight! First, the detecting duo is investigating the paranormal legend of “Sleepy Hollow” near the Hudson River Valley—hunting for evidence from Ichabod Crane and the rumored Headless Horseman. Then, the Diggers set out in a southern Colorado ghost town looking for clues from the Ludlow Massacre of 1914. This was the  bloody result of a strike against Colorado coal mines, resulting in the deaths of 24 innocent people. National Geographic Channel is bringing us an intriguing fourth season of the popular “Diggers” reality metal detecting series. Look forward to this summer’s detecting finds; these are items from famous gang fights to Civil War battles to storied American legends (all certified by historians).

Tune in tonight for new “Diggers” episodes on National Geographic Channel:

“Sleepy Hollow:” 10pm Eastern/9pm Central/8pm Mountain & Pacific

Some people consider “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” to be the creepiest ghost story of all times. Written by Washington Irving, it is one of the first American horror stories, with Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman talked about every Halloween. The story takes place in the late 1700s in a fictional city called “Sleepy Hollow” which is now Tarrytown, New York. Legend has it that a Hessian soldier lost his head to a cannon ball during the Revolutionary War and that the ghost continued to ride around the forest on a horse looking for his head. Then, folks said that schoolteacher Ichabod Crane disappeared in the same forest while riding home from wealthy farmer Van Tassel’s house. KG and Ringy are on site at the Van Tassel house, searching the yard for artifacts. Both Diggers score monumental Revolutionary-period finds, including part of an oil lamp. Archaeologist Marc weighs in on these artifacts and who they may have belonged to.

“The Ludlow Massacre:” 10:30pm Eastern/9:30pm Central/8:30pm Mountain & Pacific

The Ludlow Massacre was an attack on striking coal miners in 1914 by the Colorado National Guard and coal operators. The coal miners held their strike for 14 months living in makeshift tent colonies with their families on the Colorado prairie. Miners’ work was grueling and they had a list of demands, including an 8-hour work day, recognition of the union, and a 10% wage increase. On April 20, 1914, guards fired on the tents, killing two dozen people—including miners’ wives and children. The United Mine Workers of America invited Diggers’ KG and Ringy to southern Colorado to help search for artifacts from the infamous Massacre. Helping historians piece together history, Ringy and KG uncover pivotal items from the early 1900s. Watch KG dig up a miner’s tag, union fob and soap token and see what it’s like to be a metal “detective.”

Metal Detecting Equipment Used on “Diggers”

Diggers’ George Wyant and Tim Saylor both count on Garrett metal detectors in the field. When cutting a plug to dig up treasure, you will also see KG and Ringy using a Garrett pin-pointer to locate it. The Garrett Pro Pointer and the new waterproof Pro-Pointer AT, also from Garrett, feature easy one-button operation that alerts you to the target with both vibrations and audio. Find metal detectors and all of the accessories you need here at MetalDetector.com!

Be sure to tune in every Monday night to see Montana detecting boys KG and Ringy in action!

Tips for Finding Antique Toys With a Metal Detector

Unlike toys of today, antique toys were often made of metal. This makes them very durable and many are still around today! Not only that, since they’re metal, you can find antique toys with a metal detector. Searching sites where children played frequently like playgrounds, and schoolyards are excellent sites to begin your hunt for antique toys. You can also visit old dump sites and even old homes as many used to have personal dump sites and privy pits where you might also find antique toys using a metal detector.

The best metal detector to use when searching for antique toys is known as a relic hunting metal detector. These machines are designed to find a variety of types of antiques including metal toys. Look for a machine that is deep seeking as well since the majority of antique toys have been buried for quite a long time at this point. Also, you’ll want to look for a low frequency metal detector as they’re better at locating iron, steel and tin; the metals most commonly used to make antique toys.

Depending on what you find, the antique toys you unearth could be worth quite a bit. To learn more about relic hunting metal detectors and treasure hunting so you can begin using your own metal detector to find antique toys, please enjoy these related articles from our learning library:

“Diggers” scored big this week with their Season 4 premiere episodes. KG and Ringy found ammo, gun parts and a metal food can from the late 1800s that could’ve come from American outlaw Butch Cassidy or the Sundance Kid. They also excited archeologists in Virginia at James Madison’s birthplace and Montpelier. As KG says, “We found awesome roundness in the hole!”  Amazing period artifacts like the woman’s heart boot plate (which may have belonged to Dolley Madison) and horseshoes from Madison’s stable can be displayed at historical tourist attractions. Civil War buffs enjoyed all the Diggers ’ “civ” scores, like the Navy button found at Belle Grove Plantation. These are rewarding finds for detectorists while also telling the story of America’s past. Update: National Geographic Channel will re-broadcast these two shows tonight July 24, 2015 starting at 10pm ET/9pm CT/8pm MT & PT. Read our preview of these two episodes here.

Get Ready for American Horror this Monday night!

Outdoor folks love a good horror story almost as much as metal detecting in the summertime. The Diggers duo are no exception, so Ringy & KG decide to trek through the same forests as Ichabod Crane in Tarrytown, New York—an area called “Sleepy Hollow.” Can an oil lamp explain the ill fate of Crane on his way home from the Van Tassel’s homestead? Then, continuing the spooky vibe, the metal detectives head to southern Colorado to explore the Ludlow Massacre incident of 1914. They’re searching for artifacts that will lend insight into the deadly massacre of mineworkers and their families. Both creepy and exciting, the next two Diggers episodes will keep you on the edge of your seat!

More wild metal detecting fun starts tonight with TV’s favorite metal detectives, “Diggers” George Wyant & Tim Saylor. National Geographic Channel’s “Diggers” kicks off season 4 and one thing is certain—Tim Saylor (“Ringy”) and George Wyant (“KG”) are sure keep us entertained with their detecting expertise, good luck and laughable antics.

Be sure to tune in every Monday night for epic metal detecting adventures and a taste of American history!

Season 4 Premiere Episodes for July 20, 2015:
“Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid:” 10pm Eastern/9pm Central/8pm Mountain & Pacific

KG and Ringy are both from the West, so they’re no strangers to searching these parts. However, in tonight’s episode, they’re hitting the stomping grounds of one of America’s notorious outlaws—Butch Cassidy. The site: Wyoming’s Hole-in-the-Wall Valley. In the 1890s, Butch Cassidy and his band of rowdy hoodlums, the Wild Bunch, holed up in the Roost- a wilderness hideout along the 2,000-mile length of what was known as the Outlaw Trail. The Outlaw Trail held the fortresses of some of the most successful bank and train robbers in the Wild West. Renegades like Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid found their way on the Outlaw Trail, operating across terrain that still today remains some of the most forbidding in America. They survived (and even thrived) because it was dangerous, unmapped territory. Although Butch Cassidy prided himself on not killing anyone, he was a dangerous outlaw who robbed banks and trains, stole cattle and engaged in gunfights. KG and Ringy believe they may have discovered his secret hideout, as they come across several bullets and loot the bandits may have left behind.

“Madison’s Montpelier:” 10:30pm Eastern/9:30pm Central/8:30pm Mountain & Pacific

James Madison, the fourth U.S. president, was arguably one of the most influential visionaries this country has ever seen. When he was elected president in 1809, he was already recognized as the “Father of our Constitution.” His good friend and colleague Thomas Jefferson, helped Madison found the Democratic-Republican Party. James Madison tirelessly and diligently helped frame the Virginia Constitution in 1776, served in the Continental Congress, and helped passed the Bill of Rights. The Diggers are privileged and honored to be granted permission to hunt the historic homes of President James Madison. Montpelier is in Orange, Virginia and had been in the Madison family since 1723. Montpelier is a well-preserved historical landmark and tourist attraction. Ringy finds “sweet nectar” at Montpelier as archeologists Marc and Terry look on. The Belle Grove Plantation, an authentic 1779 Manor House was also one of James Madison’s residencies. The Diggers are thrilled at the chance to find remnants from James Madison. What they eventually uncover in Virginia proves to be even more than they hoped for. Tune in tonight to see their discoveries!

Metal Detecting Equipment Used by the Diggers

Both of the Diggers prefer Garrett brand metal detectors, specifically the Garrett AT Pro and Garrett AT Gold. You can watch our video that compares these two AT Series detectors. They are also equipped with the Garrett Pro Pointer. This unit, and the new waterproof Pro-Pointer AT, also from Garrett, features easy one-button operation that alerts you to the target with both vibrations and audio. You can find all of this metal detecting equipment and more at MetalDetector.com!

No Time for Swimming When Metal Detecting the Beach!

For REAL Fun at the Beach, Bring Your Metal Detector!

What could be better than simply enjoying the sun and the sand while on vacation? Finding treasure of course!

What could be better than simply enjoying the sun and the sand while on vacation? Finding treasure of course!

Hello summertime! What’s not to love about sunny days, flip flops, barbecues, star-gazing and campfires? For metal detectorists, summertime means longer days and more time for treasure hunting. If you’re new to the hobby, you picked the perfect time to get started. This is the ideal season to find treasure at the beach. Forget about swimming and surfing…the real fun happens on the beach! Wait ‘til you find a platinum ring or a historical coin buried in the sand.

The best thing about metal detecting the beach is that no matter how many detectorists preceded you, there is always more treasure to be found. The movement of the tide carries objects from the water to the sand. It also places metal items at different depths, and replenishes the sand with new lost items all the time. There’s a reason detectorists are out in full force at the beach—success!

Best Beach Hunting Times

The best time to detect largely depends on the tide; this does change based on the season and the moon. If the tide is high for the majority of the day, you’ll be able to find good targets on the beach when the tide goes out. If the tide is low for most of the day, search the low tide line for treasure. When the tide comes in, it pushes a lot of things with it; it also tends to bury heavier objects. Knowing this will help you determine where to hunt on a particular day. Some beachcombers swear by the high tide line. They say it produces everything—from trash, to rings, coins & other trinkets.

After it rains, head to the beach! Rainfall helps pull lost items to the surface of the sand, making  it easier to find valuables. During beach erosion is great time for detectorists. This cycle takes place because of the changing tides, too. When the sand is being eroded because of increased water activity, jewelry, coins and other items are being pulled to  the surface.

Typical Treasure Finds at the Beach

What can you find on the beach with your metal detector? The better question is what can’t you find? Long-time hobbyists say that coins usually fill their pockets—the majority of finds. You can find clad (modern) coins, historical American coins and plenty of foreign coins, too. Some Florida beaches are known to produce valuable old Spanish coins. Jewelry is very often found at the beach, and it can be extremely valuable! Treasure hunters find wedding rings, rings with precious stones, watches, bracelets, necklaces and earrings. Don’t throw anything away until you carefully examine it at home. One detectorist thought he found a smashed up piece of costume jewelry. He later discovered it was an antique platinum ring with over 2 carats of diamonds. A jeweler informed him that the ring was from the 1900’s or earlier. Sometimes, it pays to have a professional look at a piece you are unsure about.

Don’t Forget a Sand Scoop & Find’s Pouch

Besides your metal detector, you will need a sand scoop or digging tool. Most beach detectorists carry a plastic sand scoop and a long-handled scoop. The plastic sand scoop is great for shallow targets; because it’s made of plastic, it won’t cause metal interference. The long-handled scoop cuts through the sand easily for retrieving deeply buried items and saves your back from constant bending. There are a wide variety of sand scoops available— from hand held to long-handled scoops with buckets. A find’s pouch or belt pouch is an efficient way to separate your recovered items. They typically have zippered areas or pockets for putting smaller and more valuable items like gold jewelry with precious stones.

Treasure on the beach awaits, so be sure to hit the sandy shorelines this summer!

If you made any resolutions for when the summer season arrives, there’s a good chance that getting healthy, losing weight or pursuing a new hobby were on your list. The summer is a great time to wipe the slate clean and make goals—imagining a better and happier you. Some hobbies allow you to accomplish multiple things at once, like getting exercise and mental stimulation. Golf is one such hobby—and so is metal detecting. So, if your golf swing doesn’t measure up – not to worry. Metal detecting offers even more advantages, including the possibility of making a profit on valuable items you find!

Metal Detecting is the Best Hobby. Here’s Why…

  1. Anybody can operate a metal detector – from kids to seniors; men and women alike. The hobby is easily available to all ages and abilities. With a little practice and advice, you can learn how to correctly swing the search coil and tune your detector.
  2. Inexpensive. The hobby itself incurs very little expense. The initial purchase of a metal detector and a few accessories is all you really need to get started. A decent entry-level metal detector for adults can be purchased from around  $150 and $70 for children.
  3. Thrilling discoveries are in store. Long time detectorists are always fascinated by what they find—it’s unpredictable. You may be searching for coins and stumble upon a bronze sword. Or, what about the Oregon couple that the husband found a 1960’s Kenmore sewing machine on the beach?
  4. Metal detecting fits in perfectly with other activities and interests. When vacationing, you can pack your detector—especially if you’re traveling overseas where treasure may lie. Fishing, camping, photography and rock-hounding go hand-in-hand with treasure hunting.
  5. Start your own collection - it’s very rewarding! If you’ve seen antiques or coins at a museum, you know how intriguing the displays are. Imagine if you could start your own collection—based on your favorite finds.
  6. Low-impact exercise. You don’t have to be physically toned or particularly active to take up metal detecting. You’re getting exercise by walking and bending over—as well as fresh air. It’s perfect exercise for retirees and seniors.
  7. Return lost items to owners. Many detectorists share rewarding stories about returning a treasured lost item back to its original owner. Whether it’s a wedding ring (see and click picture above for a great story), military dog tag or stolen property, the owners are eternally grateful!
  8. Can be a shared hobby. Time in the field with a metal detector can bring people and families closer. Grandchildren would love to share in your hobby, as well as wives and children. Add a renewed sense of adventure with each new treasure you uncover; have friendly contests or just learn about coins and relics together.
  9. Your friends will be jealous. Once they see how cool your metal detector is and all of the treasures you’re finding, they will want to join in on the fun. This is an opportunity to go out detecting with your friends!
  10. Learn something new. From electronics to science and nature, the hobby of metal detecting will certainly enlighten you in many areas. You will learn about local geography, the history of the items you find and how the circuitry in your detector picks up metal objects.

It doesn’t matter where you live, because lost treasure can be uncovered anywhere- even in your own backyard. Just about every city has parks, baseball fields and construction sites. With a little research at your town library, you’ll find many potential hunting sites. To learn the “basics” of metal detecting and select an entry-level metal detector, visit our Learning Library. It has how-to-guides and takes you step-by-step through the process of selecting a metal detector. Here are a few helpful introductory articles:

National Geographic’s Diggers Season 4 Premiers on Monday July 20, 2015

Daniel Bernzweig of MetalDetector.com shares details on National Geographics Diggers Show

The Diggers TV show allows viewers to see what it is like to search for buried relics and treasures with a metal detector and the history that goes along with it.

TV reality show Diggers on the National Geographic Channel is striking a chord with both metal detector hobbyists and interested onlookers alike. The show aired for the first time in February 2012, and MetalDetector.com has learned that the fourth season of Diggers will premier with two new episodes on Monday July 20, 2015. Viewers get to follow two metal detectorists across the U.S. who use familiar metal detectors and equipment to unearth buried coins, tokens, relics and other artifacts. The show’s two metal detecting enthusiasts, “King George” (George Wyant) and “The Ringmaster” (Tim Saylor) call themselves ‘metal detectives’ and are just as animated about the hunt as their finds. Diggers opening scene states that “history sits just under our feet,” which could be the mantra for the growing hobby of metal detecting. With millions of lost coins and endless valuables buried beneath the earth, it’s no wonder that this exciting pastime is spreading like wildfire.

Get a “Diggers” Season 4 episode preview each week throughout the season here on our MetalDetector.com blog. … “Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid” and “Madison’s Montpelier”, … will be shown on Monday July 20, 2015.

George and Tim’s nicknames were shortened for the show to “KG” and “Ringy.” The pair is as eager as kids in a candy store as they set out to find what they call ‘nectar’ and ‘juice’ at various historical hot spots across the country. Along with historians and the local land owners, KG and Ringy have be seen searching for Civil War relics at campsites in Virginia, stolen gold in the mines of Nevada and battlefield relics dating back to 1863 in Gettysburg, PA—just to name a few. As soon as their feet touch ground, viewers will see KG and Ringy totally geared up for metal detecting. They immediately get to work equipped with metal detectors such as the Garrett AT Pro and Garrett AT Gold which you can review for yourself in our Garrett AT Pro & AT Gold comparison article. They also use headphones to make sure they hear all signals their detectors emit and digging tools such as the Lesche Digging Tool and the Garrett Edge Digger.

Past Season Episodes – Gettysburg Battlefield: Finding Artifacts & Lincoln Pennies

In a past season episode when Ringy and KG travel to the land of Gettysburg, they are hunting for artifacts that date back to 1863. At the Tate Farm, Ringy found half of a horseshoe and a Minie` ball (Civil War bullet) with his Garrett AT Pro Metal Detector.

Also at the Tate Farm, KG got a ‘slammin’ hit’—heard crystal clear with headphones similar to our DepthMaster Audiophone II Metal Detector Headphones. It turned out to be a flat button from a Civil War soldier’s coat. KG makes easy work of target recovery with a pinpointing probe. His probe of choice? Garrett’s Pro-Pointer Pinpointing Metal Detector. This unit, and the new waterproof Pro-Pointer AT, features easy one-button operation that alerts you to the target with both vibrations and audio. The pinpointer helped him isolate a Lincoln penny and a King George colonial coin with ease.
