Adventurous Treasure Hunting Trip To The Ghost Village Manzurka (Story 9)

Finding 18th Century Siberian Coins with Minelab Explorer II

As soon as Rudolf parked the jeep, I grabbed my Explorer, got out, and began detecting. Because many treasure hunters had visited the site before, I decided to avoid the open flat areas and search through the bushes of stinging nettles. That strategy produced some great results. My first find was a Siberian coin!

Then another Siberian coin came out, also completely encrusted and in even worse shape.

While the guys were taking a break, the girls took over and began 'swinging' the coils.
