Coins, Treasure, and Relics Forum

This forum is dedicated to the hunting of coins and relics with a metal detector.


Coin and Relic Forum Rules

First off let me welcome you to the Nugget-Shooter Coin and relic Forum,

There are just a few rules here and yup I do enforce them and keep an eye on things as best I can. Here are a few guidelines I'd like you to follow if you will be participating here.

Vulgar and abusive language is not welcome here! Heck a cuss word to get a point across is not so bad, but I think you know what I mean.

I will not host public arguments and pissing matches between individuals here so please just don't do it. When it happens the post most times will simply vanish into cyber space.

Political posts are not permitted here and surly you can find other forums that host those discussions, I don't think anyone cares if you are Conservative or Liberal when we are out hunting gold nuggets.

You may not use this forum to advertise any other dealer, store, or product without written permission by owner at any time. Used items are allowed in the classified section.

This forum is not responsible for anything said by it's members at any time. This is a public forum and will remain so and although I can and will occasionally zap "bad content" I don't do it often and so far have never banned a person. Also opinions expressed here do not always represent the opinion of the forum's owner!

Guests are welcome to browse the forum and use the information provided by registered members, but you can not post yourself until you are a registered member.

That is pretty much it my fellow Nugget Shooters so enjoy the forum, keep it about metal detecting for coin and relic related subjects, and play nice.

Bill Southern

    • I wouldn't mind seeing some pictures of the aluminized chaff. I know more recently it was foil strips replaced by metal squares, but it'd be nice to see what it looks like after digging up.
    • I agree could some type of target or radar testing material they were testing at that time. but I will say Ive dug a bunch of that aluminumized chaff. AzNuggetBob
    • Nice gold Dr.Tones I like that drone idea for prospecting. could save a heap of walking. AzNuggetBob
    • Andy quick answer. on the SD series they used the aluminum control housing for a shielding to block EMI. thats why it had a aluminum foil barrier under the plastic end plates.
      same reason for the foil inside co-ax cable and the carbon shielding in the early coils. Big tip: if you have even a small hole without shielding from the coil to the control housing it will let EMI in. If you want to know more PM me. I modded early minlabs for years.

    • Has anyone done an overlay of where these wire bits are being found against WWII training locations and etc..? Continuing along El D's line of WAG reasoning, I'm seeing motor pool and/or fuel transference facilities.. Seems to me we used wire mesh for filtration and/or straining of diesel, oils and other lubricants during that time frame.. Cheap and 'disposable'.. Swamp
