Sell Your Treasure Finds for Top Dollar! Learn How Now.

The amazing thing about metal detecting is that you can take this hobby into so many different directions. Whether you’re a land or water hunter, your treasure finds are all valuable. What you do with your treasure finds is entirely up to YOU. Some hobbyists drop all of their coins into a big jug to save for their next vacation. Others display collections of old coins, jewelry and relics in their home. Relic hunters are known to loan items to local museums. And lots of detectorists sell valuable finds for a profit! You can earn extra income—all while participating in a hobby you love! If you are looking to make some money on your finds, there’s a few things you need to know before you sell:

  1. Correctly identify your find
  2. Get an estimate of its value
  3. Decide where to sell the item

Identify What You have Found!

This can be the tricky part. Let’s say you’ve found an old belt buckle. Is it just an ordinary men’s buckle or is it from a Revelutionary or Civil War soldier’s uniform? And what condition is it in? These are big factors in determining the buckle’s value. Our suggestion is to research your object before getting an estimate to sell. For example, if you have uncovered a piece of silver with markings, try to identify the manufacturer. Then, you can determine its age and value. Contact a local appraiser to ballpark your object’s worth. You can also post a photo of your find in a metal detecting community forum. Members are happy to help you identify your find.

Get an Estimate of Your Treasures’ Value

With 14- and 18-karat jewelry, you will see markings on the pieces of jewelry. You can look up these markings on the internet to see what it’s worth. To determine a coin’s worth, check popular websites such as NGC from the American Numismatic Association.

Where to Sell Your Treasure  

It’s easy to find a buyer online. Research high-quality coin and relics dealers that operate on the internet. There are online dealers that have been buying and selling coins, gold and silver through the mail for decades. If you want to sell gold/platinum/silver for melt, it is best to do it locally in person. Tip: Take the same item to several different jewelers and see who offers the best price.

Looking Back: Treasure Finds in the News for 2015

The most exciting aspect of metal detecting is the potential for monumental finds—possibly dating back hundreds of years. Luck is definitely a huge player in the search for treasure, as there are no rules of logic! There is the lucky boy who found a hoard of Roman silver denarii in the UK on his very first time out with a metal detector. Or the detectorist who searched a site that was supposedly hunted out and found a pristine hammered gold coin. Just like the spinning roulette wheel, it’s all a game of chance on a number or color. The detectorist who maintains a positive attitude and realizes that among the trash, he or she will find treasure and will inevitably get “lucky” at some point.

If you believe in the law of attraction, you know that positive energy attracts a positive outcome. Perhaps this is what drove some of the folks below who found these recent “treasure(s) in the headlines.”

At the University at Buffalo, professor Philip Kiernan investigated a rumor about a treasure trove and uncovered a priceless collection of ancient Greek and Roman coins. Dozens of gold and silver coins, which date back 2,500 years, were left by wealthy benefactor Thomas B. Lockwood in 1935. Professor Kiernan is also a coin expert, and says the coins are extremely well preserved.  “My job as an archaeologist is to appreciate their historical value, and their historical value is absolutely priceless.”

Beginners: Identifying the Tones Your Metal Detector Makes

This jewelry was found on a beach in Florida with the Garrett AT Pro Metal Detector.

Jewelry can be found with a metal detector such as the gold and silver items seen here. Knowing which signals or tones to dig is key.

The one thing all metal detectors have in common: they sound a tone when metal is targeted. And what a joyous sound it is! There is such a thing as silent search mode, but aside from that, you can count on hearing an audio tone when there’s either treasure or trash underfoot. According to hobbyists who have owned multiple metal detectors, the tone varies depending on the manufacturer. Regardless, you will get used to identifying the tones your detector makes. When you first get a detector, it’s a great idea to bury coins, bottle caps or other items in your own backyard just to hear how each target sounds. You may have already noticed that a coin generally has a solid and repeatable signal, whereas junk gives a broken, clipped tone that changes every time you scan it.

Good Targets vs. Junk Targets

It’s important to learn the sound a coin makes right away. Coins usually produce a solid, distinctive sound that’s hard to miss. It will probably start and stop suddenly, going quickly from silent to full volume- then back to silent as you move away. This should happen with each sweep of the search coil. Also, on a metal detector that has target ID with numerical values, coins typically register the same value when you turn and scan from a different direction.

Junk targets, such as pull-tabs and iron will have a choppy, broken sound. The reason for this is that pull-tabs and other junk are asymmetrical. Going east to west may give a solid signal, while going west to east may sound choppy. That’s a good indication that the item is oddly shaped. As far as numerical values, junk targets give you one reading when you first scan them, and a different value when you turn 90 degrees or swing in the opposite direction. If you’re getting a lot of chatter or static in your headphones, check that you’re not under power lines or by a transformer. Adjusting the sensitivity down will help to properly operate in these areas.

Pinpoint Your Target Before You Start Digging!

So, once you’re metal detector sounds a tone, it’s time to start digging, right?  Not so fast. It will be much easier to find your object if you pinpoint it first. Pinpointing is the process of precisely locating your target in the smallest possible area. And you can use your metal detector to pinpoint if you don’t have a separate pinpointing tool. They say that 9 out of 10 serious detectorists use a pinpointer such as the famous Garrett Pro Pinpointer or the waterproof Pro-Pointer AT and Makro Pointer. But if you’re a beginner, you can start by pinpointing with your metal detector. Many newer model detectors feature a “pinpoint mode.” If this is the case, switch to this mode to locate your target. The more accurate you can get, the smaller the amount of dirt you’ll have to dig to retrieve your target.

You’re listening for the audio clue to help understand the exact location of potential treasure. As the center of your coil gets closer to the target, the audio tone will be louder. When your coil moves away from the metal, the audio response will be quieter. Some detectors with pinpoint mode will change pitch in relation to your target, too. So, the pitch and volume of the tone will get higher when you’re in close proximity. If your metal detector doesn’t feature pinpoint mode, it’s o.k. There are several other methods that work for pinpointing. The PLUS method involves moving your detector in the shape of a “plus” sign to best find the object. First, move your coil from left to right to get the strongest audio tone. Then change directions with your coil by moving it front to back. It’s pretty easy—if the sound gets stronger, you are moving your coil closer to the target. Another method is the 90 degree switch. When you locate your target, start pinpointing until you hear the strongest signal. Mark this spot—then, move 90 degrees in either direction. After moving 90 degrees, start sweeping your coil again. You are creating an X in the ground with your swings and your target should be directly in the center of the X.

Should I Act on a Weak Signal?

All beginners are excited to start digging up treasure, but grow quickly tired of all the aluminum junk getting in the way. That’s when listening to your audio tones is important. But what do you do with a questionable audio signal? It may not sound like the rest or you may not be able to get it to repeat. To dig or not to dig—this is the question. Experts say you should consider the alternative. What if it happens to be a piece of gold? Before you walk away, try to get a stronger signal. Sometimes all you need to do is move 90 degrees in either direction. Often, you’ll find that the questionable target is much stronger when you swing your search coil from another direction. If you signal is still very weak, try turning up the sensitivity on your metal detector to see if your tone gets louder. On a side note: if there seems to be a lot of trash in the areas you’re searching, a smaller coil may be better.

10 Reasons to Take up Metal Detecting this Year

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:

Dig Wars Season Finale Tonight on Travel Channel

The Season finale of the Travel Channel’s new TV series Dig Wars airs tonight. Dig Wars is a competition hunt between three pairs of metal detectorists who travel to historical locations in the U.S. in search of the most valuable artifacts. Each team has only one day

Mike Scott  of Dig Wars with treasure hunting brothers Daniel and Michael of MetalDetector.com

Mike Scott of Dig Wars with treasure hunting brothers Daniel and Michael of MetalDetector.com

to dig; then an appraiser determines the value of each of their finds. The team who rings up the highest price tag at the end of the day wins that hunt. So far, each of the teams has chalked up victories. Teams consist of Mike Scott and Larry Cissna, Ron Guinazzo and Mark Slinkman, along with the husband and wife team Abby and Josh Silva. Chicago Ron, Larry Cissna and Mike Scott are well-known in the industry and each of the contestants are highly experienced detectorists.

What’s really refreshing about this digging show is that it’s closer to the reality of metal detecting than some of the other dramatic “reality” shows seen in the past. In Dig Wars, we get to see the truth of unsuccessful days and run-of-the-mill finds. However, the Civil War battlefields, old settlements, forts and mines these folks gain access to are places detectorists dream of. And each of the teams score some amazing finds.

Discoveries of the Dig Wars Cast Members

In Fort St. Philip, an abandoned military outpost in Louisiana, Ron and Mark hit a home run by finding a military officer’s seal appraised at $1200. That’s not to take away from Josh and Abby’s finds: a cannonball and 1812 buttons. Mike and Larry found a noteworthy 100-lb. parrot shell. At the Eastover Plantation in Virginia, the teams dig near the site of America’s oldest European settlement. It was fun to see the rare 1806 silver half-dollar Josh/Abby found as well as Mike’s steelyard scale. Mark and Ron rejoiced with the bayonet they found in Episode 3 on their dig at the Antietam Overlook Farm in Maryland.

Historic sites – exciting metal detector finds!

Digging Georgia Landing is an exciting episode for Civil War buffs because it’s set at the site of the Battle of Georgia Plantation in LA. Josh and Abby won this round with their finds of a Louisiana coat button appraised at $700 and a Yankee button with the Connecticut state seal appraised at $200. Mike and Larry dug up two awesome pieces—a buckle and keeper from an 1851 officer’s belt: appraised at $700. In Ruby, AZ, the teams set out in search for gold in an abandoned gold mining town about 4 miles north of New Mexico. This day’s treasure hunt is mint for each of the teams. Mike strikes some gold nuggets and Mark and Ron found a soldier’s belt buckle from 1880 as well as a stashed purse with tons of valuable coins (Barber dimes/quarter, Indianheads, etc.)

Cast Members Use Equipment Stocked at MetalDetector.com

Dig Wars cast member Mike Scott said it best himself, “Tune in to see some cool detecting and good times on TV with Fisher, Teknetics, ….. and Garrett metal detectors all in action finding some really cool artifacts!” At MetalDetector.com, we are proud to carry the majority of all metal detector brands. Not to mention we have thoroughly enjoyed watching what these guys (and gal) have unearthed while checking out which equipment each of the detectorists are using.

The Season 1 finale of Dig Wars airs this Wednesday, July 10. 2013: 10:00pm Eastern / 9:00pm Central / 8:00pm Mountain / 10:00pm Pacific. This dig takes place at Fort Phantom in the ruins of a 19th-century fort. The teams will try their hand uncovering artifacts from Texas frontier life. Be sure to tune in to see who will gather up the best bounty and tell us if you’re enjoying Dig Wars as much as we are!
