How does a newbie know when they have finally gained veteran status?
Here is a finds checklist:
Key Skinker Cutlery / horse shoe Bullet Junk ring Vintage pull tab / corkscrew Wire / electronics Watch / cellphone Toys Button / glasses
Other notable achievements Detecting for an entire day. Taking your detector on holiday Earning some money from scrap metal recovery Finding enough spendables to buy a well deserved snack or drink
I'd add: Spend time cleaning up someone else's messy plugs.
I reckon you're a true veteran when you dig a "Pulltab" or "Trash Aluminium" signal and find it's actually your first Gold Ring.
How about the elusive gold coin!......automatic entry into the detecting hall of fame lol
Well I think we all know what the detectorist bucket list is...
sovereign, token, gold ring, silver ring, gemstone jewelery, gold nugget, silver coins, military badge/buttons...
I like it, i like it alot.Dont forget toy cars and getting to the scene and forgettin part of your detector... or gear.
Yeah, forgetting spade, or finds bag.Or my most often memory fade - bug repellent, it sure keeps you on move, and you don't mind getting wet and muddy so much then!
