How does a newbie know when they have finally gained veteran status?
Here is a finds checklist:
Cutlery / horse shoe
Vintage pull tab / corkscrew
Wire / electronics
Watch / cellphone
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!
