Relic Hunting in Sillamäe (Estonia)
Visiting a Historic Battlefield
We decided to search the opposite corner of the field, far away from the historic spot. We could leave the field and search the old homestead site which was in the neighboring forest but our curiosity took over. There could be interesting finds discovered even at the outskirts of this historic location.
I armed my Explorer with 15-inch WOT coil and set the discrimination in ALL METAL mode. Ingvar had similar settings on his Minelab Musketeer.
I am Ready To Rock-N-Roll!
As soon as we began searching, I realized that this hunt was not going to be an easy one: again, there were hundreds of WW2 junk targets in the ground; most of them would give out a good signal. One hour passed and we still were empty-handed.
We kept digging. Suddenly Ingvar gave me a shout. I saw a big smile on his face and a coin in his hand. His find was not a very old coin but it was a "keeper."
Russian 1886 1 Kopek Coin
I was rewarded with just two small strap buckles.
After another hour of painful digging passed, I finally got lucky as well and received a nice solid coin signal. Yes, there was a coin in the hole!
1872 3 Kopeks
