Bone 10 Show and Hunt

The tenth annual Best of the Northeast Treasure Hunters & Collectors weekend will be held in Keene, NH from April 25-27, 2003. This is your chance to enjoy an old New England town, see what others are finding, see what new equipment is on the market, and enjoy a treasure hunt at an old New Hampshire muster field. There is the possibility that television's Today Show might be at the Muster field to do a human-interest story.

Winter Blues

What a winter. Snow and very, very cold. Not being able to underwater or land treasure hunt makes me very unhappy and miserable. I am about 70 miles from Long Island sound. I try to go on my days off which are Mondays. I will go when I can catch the low tide during the middle of the day. As of this writing, I have made 4 trips and I have found a piece of gold 3 out of 4 times. I consider myself very lucky because these areas are heavily hunted year round with the best of metal detectors and hunters. Recently, I arrived at the beach about 10:45 am with the temperature at 13 and the wind chill below 0. I usually get out into the water and use my Headhunter PI. Even though this area is

heavily hunted, I feel I have an edge because our PI goes so deep. Today wasn’t going to be one of those days. Wind chill was too low. I decided to use my Headhunter Diver and work in the rocks as the tide was going out. In 4 hours I found 31 coins and 2 rings (1 Gold). I also found some pulltabs and lead, but not that much junk. There were lots of hot rocks there, but it was easy for me to ignore them because they give off their own distinct signal. Most of the finds were made from 1" to about 8" or 9" deep. I had no problem with the salt water. The Headhunter is a joy to use, light and easy... And of course, any day you find a piece of gold is a great day.

Danny’s 115 Gold

Dan Yarruso has been treasure hunting for over 20 years. He is an "all-around" treasure hunter. His main love is wading in the water for Gold jewelry. This past year Danny has found 115 pieces of gold. He uses our Headhunter Diver and our Headhunter Pulse. He likes them for their ease of use and sensitivity to gold. He also likes to travel and has taken the Headhunters to the islands. 

They use up very little space in his travels he tells us. His gold finds the last couple years would make most treasure hunters jealous. Just look at the pile of gold in the picture. Dan plans on retiring to Myrtle Beach soon. If you wish to contact him, here is is E-mail address: 

Look out South Carolina!

Why so many different Headphones?
Once in awhile someone calls and says we have too many to chose from. What is the best? My answer is always the same... Read all the different options and see what set will meet your needs and hearing requirements. We started in 1996 with the original Gray Ghost. We continually strive to fit different customer needs. We now have 12 different headphones. Like different metal detectors, they all do the job, but you like the way one works or it has an option you just need to have. Many of our customers own several different models. If you have an option you would like to see in a pair of headphones, let us know. Maybe it would be something that will be useful and add to our product line. Remember our headphones were made for metal detectors and are backed up by a lifetime warranty.

We will be setting a table up at the 2 shows listed at left. If you plan on attending, please stop by our booth and say hello.
