“Smoking” Spot! – Metal Detecting With Some Tricks And Plenty Of Finds


Hello, I’m on a hill. The weather is perfect for metal detecting. Sounds like small iron. Let’s see. “I don’t trust you, Deus”. It’s a small “musket ball”. “Deus – what’s going on?” It calls lead iron even with “Deus Fast” filters. Poor animal. I’ll leave it here. A nice looking area, especially this time of year. The ground is disturbed by animals. Which feels almost like detecting a field. It looks like a rivet, but it’s a button. GPS (POI) #1. It’s a little bit deeper. It went back home. This could be a pin. #2 Probably just iron. Let’s take a look. I think, I found one before, but I don’t know what it is… It looks “very old”. Iron again. Another one. This is just WWII shrapnel. I don’t need it. I made a circle around it. Part of a buckle or something. I have to readjust the camera. Hmm… That’s plastic. It had some metal parts inside. I apologise for the noises – something is always touching the camera mic. A piece of lead. Hmm… Oh no, the object was under the pick ax “line”… It’s a thin coin – unfortunately bent. I hope it’s not silver. “It’s your fault Deus.” He told me the wrong position… ๐Ÿ˜‰ I don’t know what coin it is. Glass… There is another smaller part. A small lead ball. A modern “2 Euro” coin (2002). I apologise for the camera angle. It’s a shotgun cartridge. It’s a button. This looks nice. I don’t think, it’s supposed to be bent like this. It looks like a pendant. I will switch to my “All-Metal” program. It will give me a little it more depth. But it doesn’t have iron discrimination. Back to my normal program. Almost nothing. That’s my “normal” setting. That’s no iron. Still a little bit deeper. Consider that this is damp soil with disturbed layer on top. Ideal conditions for the Deus. I probably wouldn’t find it with my normal setting. Almost there. I apologise for the slow pace, but I have to be careful. The pinpointer depth. Well, I wonder how many items I’m missing… A wind cap from an old smoking pipe. The “All-metal” setting gives me a clean signal. My normal set says: iron, or no signal at all. With removed leaves (all of the sudden) a good signal. This coil has no depth. I wonder since the beginning if I bought a lemon… My elliptical coil has even less depth. Two lemons, from two different dealers, or the norm? A button… Not even deep… OK, there is some iron at the back, but… …the “Deus Fast” filters should “clean is out” at this depth. I will try my 11″ coil soon… This clearly isn’t working (for me). Another wind cap from an old smoking pipe. Not as fancy as the other one, but still… I have the feeling, I’m only finding this stuff due to disturbed soil… And almost no humus. Has this something to do with a cannon? I believe, someone once wrote me about a similar item. “All-Metal” Normal. Nothing… I’m “devastated”. Back to All-Metal. The normal set without the leaves. Now it’s telling “iron”. It was relatively clear, that’s why I believed it. This is “All-Metal” again. “Normal.” It would have found it as well. Let’s see what it is. Roots… The lower part of another (smoking pipe) wind cap. Imagine all these people standing here with a smoking pipe… That’s a button. Not in the best shape but still… It’s a piece of lead. Is this a button? Egyptians? Here? I don’t see any pyramids… Hmm… Roots and stones… Hmm… A letter? Probably just a coincidence. I’m in “All-Metal” mode (with no discrimination) Let’s change to “normal”. The Deus says: “small iron”. Maybe something next to it. No, I don’t think so. This signal is “good”. It became even better. It’s shallow. It’s a button. That’s a bottle screw cap. (I must have been doing my “breathing exercises”…) Sometimes I forget to breath. Another button. #19… Who’s that?! My friend “the worm” came out to see what’s going on. I will build him a new apartment. There… A difficult target… He came out again… I think, he likes it… “Sorry, I have to work”. There is the find. It’s a tiny button. With a design. It’s getting darker… A small “musket ball”. Check out this mushroom. “Someone” already took a bite… Probably lying in the bushes now… A musket ball. (I had to “cut it short”. You will realize in a moment why…) A piece of lead. Another piece. Probably a “former” musket ball. Lead again. A musket ball. All within this tiny spot. Lead… A fish? Lead again. A dog? An airplane? A small piece of lead. “I would like to go home… Please no more lead!” Lead. Again. I have to stick the Deus remote into my pocket… It’s still too loud, dogs started barking at me. A musket ball. This was probably a mobile “musket ball factory”. A tiny piece of lead. Again… I’m exhausted… No surprise – it’s lead again. I “haven’t heard” this signal… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Let’s stomp the ground and run! I have to go. It was quite a hunt… Please wait for the pictures… A tiny spider. He escaped. There he is. The finds: “2 Euro” coin. 2002 I wish, this was whole… A piece of lead. More lead… The “old looking” objects. Hmm… A button. Another one… And a few more… Button with iron at the back. Part from a strap etc. The broken (copper) coin. I have no idea what it is. Part of a wind cap from an old smoking pipe. Another one. Look like a small helmet. And the last one. With a stamp. Part of a strap? Could that be a “friction primer” from a cannon? The “pendant”. Looks like it was already broken. The “Egyptian”… “button”. I had problems to find trash today. And treasure. Detecting time: 2h:55min

  2. Nice mixed bag of artefacts friend plenty of buttons that one with the Egyptians dancing as me puzzled I love the wind caps take care buddy.atvb.

  3. Hard work making this production. A number of great finds and history saved, congratulations. Always a pleasure viewing and enjoy coming along. Very fine video. Looking forward to your next hunt.

  4. Nice Egyptian button and rather a lot of wind caps. Must have been a favorite spot for chaps to smoke their pipes or was it a group of women hiding out smoking their pipes? Not to be discovered by their husbands. (O:

  5. Again thank you for an entertaining hunt. I also detect solo in the woods and have tried a few detectors with varied success. Some better than others. As a result I have gone back to my old Garrett Ace 250 and find it reliable and trustworthy. Have to dig a lot of trash and foil but it does not miss much. Looking forward to your hunt with anticipation.

  6. Mmmm lately you have problems with hf coil, you must be try the 11" x35 coil, the best of two worlds, high frequency and deep. I use the x35 and hf elliptical, one complete the other. Amazing hunt as ussual!!!

  8. It (the piece for a cannon) might be used to hold theย primer to light the cannon with.ย  With the wind caps, you may have found an oldย military ย site.ย  In the late 1800'sย  and early 1900's they smoked pipes while fighting I believe. I bet the paddle shaped thing was for handling hot metal from a fire.ย  For smelting or molding something. I think you have found a Napoleonic War site.ย  The different units had strange images representing their units. The button at 44:19 has a faint design around the outside edge. Iย  bet friend worm did not expect the decorator today.

  9. You are the best, ty for sharing, hello from Rome Italy ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  10. You must be an expert with buttons by now. Big or small, every button has it's own little story. How do you find your locations and it's history with each video? What's the furthest you have travelled? Great video as always. X

  11. Nice walk in the Forest.
    Regarding your ยซย old looking objects ยซย , i think itโ€™s an ox or horse cart wheel pin.

  12. Possibly park like setting for festivities many years ago, younger forest of trees surrounding it, at least as much as I could tell as a viewer, it looks like a younger forest, lots of roots and I would be horrified after all the hunts you have been on to discover my equipment lied! Enjoyable and educational.

  13. Erst einmal Danke fรผr Deine Antwort, hat mich sehr gefreut. Tja manchmal spinnen die Detektoren. Kommt bei mir und meinem Sohn als auch vor. Erstaunlich das gleich zweimal ein Pfeifendeckel nacheinander kommt. Am Samstag fand mein Sohn einen Stiel von einem Lรถffel (versilbert) In ein paar Meter Entfernung fand ich dann den Rest. Die Wildschweine erleichtern manchmal richtig die Grabarbeit. Kam auch schon รถfter, dass man hier was fand.
    Ich mรถchte mich fรผr dieses schรถne Video bedanken und fรผr die viele Mรผhe die Du Deinen Zuschauern machst. Schรถnen Abend Andreas aus BW.
