When beach metal detecting I often come across old lead fishing weights. When I first started metal detecting on the beach I used to get frustrated and move on from an area where I kept getting these old lead weights.
Beach metal detecting can be very frustrating but there are times when it can be very rewarding and lucrative. You might have seen my other lucrative finds from the beach but one of my latest finds is one of my best. . . OLD GOLD!
Youtube metal detecting videos can offer some great tips. . .
Beach metal detecting can be a great hobby and sometimes very frustrating to say the least and I am always on the look out to better my chances of finding more great items on the beach. I often find myself looking at the many metal detecting video on Youtube that offer some great entertainment, along with some really good tips and advice (as you can see below)
Making money with beach metal detecting can be fairly straightforward (at times) if you put in the time, have a decent metal detector that can handle the wet salt sand, and learn to understand the beaches you are going to metal detect on.
They say that a picture says a thousand words, so a video must be much better. This is the latest in my metal detecting Youtube video where I show off my better finds.
In this particular video I show you a small silver ring found on one of my local beach. It’s clearly marked as 925 and a lovely tarnish to it.
There are a few more videos over on my metal detecting Youtube channel and plenty more to come.
When beach metal detecting, many can fall into the trap of thinking that its only the winter where the sand gets removed from the beach, or that only a certain area of a beach can produce the better finds.
It’s also very easy to fall into a rut of only going to a certain beach at a certain time. As I have said many times before, the beach can change over night at any time of the year and if anyone else says any different, don’t listen.
For myself, beach metal detecting means fresh air and a load of modern finds and of course the usual trash. There are a number of beaches which I have found older stuff on and always return to these to see what is producing, but normally it’s newer finds and trash.
I don’t think there is any other hobby I enjoy as much as metal detecting / treasure hunting and beach metal detecting never stops amazing me as to what can come out of the sand. The hobby can be very rewarding, and sometimes really lucrative, for those willing to put in the time on the beach.
I say lucrative, as at the height of the summer the beach is always replenished with great new finds from the thousands of people flocking to the beach to enjoy the sun.
I am always amazed as to what comes out of the ground when metal detecting, and certainly when beach metal detecting. The beach is always being replenished with new finds and you just nerver really know what your next signal will reveal.
Silver hammered coins are always great to find and I see them as little disks of art, and each one has it’s own character. I am also amazed that you never know what will turn up when metal detecting and today’s club search was an eventful one.
