    Captain Vallo

    Whilst I may not have had much luck in my first year of detecting I want to improve my chances by making a test or finds garden.

    The problem is that I haven’t found any gold or silver or hammered as of yet so I am struggling to ‘plant’ any test materials other than modern stuff.

    Does anyone know of modern coins or items that I can replicate or emulate ancient coins etc.

    I am using an XP Deus Full with 11″ X35 coil.

    The purpose is to settle on a preferred program and setting as well as familiarise myself with so called good targets and rubbish.

    Thanks in anticipation



    Hi Captain,
    It would be difficult to replicate true soil conditions in your test bed as opposed to out in the field is my guess…lots of different factors to overcome.
    It’s a bloody question though, I have a couple of hammered I can lend you, (only lend that is cos I ain’t found that many meself HEHE)
    Give me a shout next time you’re out and I’ll bring em with me.
