Hi, my name is Merrill Kazanjian. New York City is an amazing place to go metal detecting. We have lots of parks, colonial history and great beaches for beach detecting. I have gone to all five boroughs of New York City To Metal Detect and beyond. I also currently own 16 metal detectors. I want to have the best and I want to help you choose the best as well. Below I will showcase some of the playlists on this channel:

I have a playlist of metal detecting videos to teach metal detecting. The videos in the playlist below are specifically made to teach the skills and mindset to becoming a great metal detectorist.

Metal Detecting Tips & Tricks:

I am a treasure hunter. So in addition to metal detecting, I go mudlarking at sites such as Dead Horse Bay. Think of mudlarking as metal detecting without a metal detector.

    I did not recognize the 10 Francs coin at 17:35. It’s not used in France, but in French Polynesia.

  2. Patrick LaPoint (kc2Bkm) on June 2, 2023 at 8:55 am

    I will never buy another machine until I see how it holds up to one year of abuse from Merrill. If its still standing its worth buying.

    Hello I’ve been watching your YouTube and shows about metal detecting and I have been learning a lot I am going to Florida with my grandson I am retired he’s 20 we’re going in January and I’ve been really trying to decide what metal detector to get and I think I’m gonna get a mine lab however I want a wireless headphones so I don’t think I’ll get the 600 anyway we’re here in Fort Wayne Indiana and we get pretty good price tickets to Las Vegas and I’ve been watching the news and I am sure you have been to the lake mead is drying up not only did they find some mob bosses and people shot and in rusted barrels all sorts of things are floating up and so I think it’ll be a great place to go metal detecting because I did that as a kid oh my way work look for arrowheads in really cool rocks and stuff so I really enjoy your show and I like your humor so I think I might plan a trip for myself and I guess I should wear some really good boots and not be afraid to find bones because that’s what they’re finding so on those bodies there could be some rings anyway just wanted to say hello because I enjoy watching you so very much and been learning a lot OK this was a little long so I hope you read it all and OK well my name is Carolyn and thank you so very much

  4. Danny Bell on June 2, 2023 at 8:56 am

    Excellent hunt Mr. Merrill

  5. Chris Simpson on June 2, 2023 at 8:58 am

    Weird enough I find more buffalo nickels then anything. Got over 70 buffs in almost 2 years. Probably more. I love ‘‘em but 11-12 on minelab 540 vanquish at any real depth is all you need.

  6. Duke DeNarie on June 2, 2023 at 8:58 am

    A bunch of skilvers is not what I’d expect from the beach

  7. Douglas Warner on June 2, 2023 at 8:59 am

    You are an entertaining guy !!

  8. larry vercauteren on June 2, 2023 at 9:03 am

    awesome would of been a good cat god day

  9. Greg Buehrer on June 2, 2023 at 9:04 am

    Living Kansas, I’ve never hunted a beach. Had no idea there was so much strategy in finding the places worth hunting and how they change and why. If I get the chance someday, your information will be very welcomed. Thanks for the schooling.

  10. Harry Surtees on June 2, 2023 at 9:06 am

    Great hunt Merrill. An unexpected half day off and you hit the beach and to your surprise, there’s lots of silver. That is a double wammy. Congrats.

  11. Angela Millard on June 2, 2023 at 9:10 am

    Way to go Merrill on the silver.

  19. Mike Lamp on June 2, 2023 at 9:18 am

    Just wanted to say I love watching your vids, you make detecting fun, keep it up.

  20. BETWEEN THE IRON on June 2, 2023 at 9:21 am

    Love your videos hit me up when you’re in Texas we can meet up and I’ll show you my spot. I’ve been researching and hunting for 20 years. Still using the whites XLT and DFX. Ready to get my hands on a Minelab equinox. Keep the videos coming love the channel.

  21. Windsurfing speed Addict on June 2, 2023 at 9:23 am

    Fab video as usual 😀😀😀, I think some people have a fair bit of discrimination on so the rusted clad coins will be missed, Uk old 5p and 10p and certain clad 1p are an example that will be missed with a lot of detectors under certain setting.
    Ps. Be careful of your waistline with all this Häagen-Dazs you unlocked in one sitting 😂😂🤣🤣

  22. Baystate Plugflipper on June 2, 2023 at 9:23 am

    Great job!!!!!!!

    That was a lot of great finds

  29. carolyn deweese on June 2, 2023 at 9:28 am

    Hello Merrill this is Carolyn hi think it be really cool if you did a podcast from Lake Mead but I know that’s far from New York but is very popular right now people are heading there though listen to yeah I really like the science part of it because I think it’s interesting to learn how the middle detector works OK keep it up Merrill I’ll be watching you and thank you for all the knowledge

  30. Duke DeNarie on June 2, 2023 at 9:28 am

    Look up about changing the battery. Watch a video of someone doing it and you won’t send it in I promise.

  31. Susan Toker on June 2, 2023 at 9:29 am

    What a silvery day. You hit that beach at the right time! I always learn from your videos. Glad you are using electrolysis on those good coins.

  32. kevin bailey on June 2, 2023 at 9:32 am

    hey Merrill next time your in cape coral look me up well go detecting ok Kevin

  33. Diana on June 2, 2023 at 9:32 am

    When you find a spot like you did it is so hard to quit and go home . It makes you want to stick a hook in the sun and hold it up so you can just keep detecting as long as you like. Very nice hunt.

  34. John McEachern on June 2, 2023 at 9:36 am

    When’s the last time you cashed in some of that "skilva "?

  35. TODD on June 2, 2023 at 9:37 am

    Nice to see you are doing well in 2022.One of the beaches here in NJ they did the sand replenishment.So my question was the sand they pumped onto the beach from offshore how finely was it sifted? Perhaps treasure sitting out there for years?….well the answer sifted pretty good unfortunately.The sand was also being washed back out,and i thought well sifted more going back out? but still no valuables.In fact the sand being washed back out effected a very good surfing area to so/ so waves😕The surf has brownish kinda water instead of the Jersey green because of the excess sand….Guess i have to wait for as you would put it " the contributers" to show up and for the ocean to return to it’s natural rythym.Army Corps. beach restoration project not so good in my eyes🤷

  36. Diggersden Tezza U.K.M.D on June 2, 2023 at 9:37 am

    Hope your weekend went well top job u legend keep it going 👍 and keep up the hard work ture legend 👍

  37. Just a Timelord Having Fun :) on June 2, 2023 at 9:38 am

    Dude send your equipment in for a free battery replacement. I’ve had to have two out of my three batteries replaced. Also apply for a warranty on your coil that may be only allowing you to use low sensitivity settings when you use it. One of mine wouldn’t quit chirping unless I went down to 13 or 14 sensitivity. Two of my coils have been replaced for similar issues.

  38. Burried History on June 2, 2023 at 9:40 am

    Wow, what a silver feast! Congrats Merrill

  39. Roy on June 2, 2023 at 9:41 am

    By gosh, Merrill you hit the mother lode or at least part of it, that beach you were on never been hit by any detectors, it’s incredible. Great Job!!

  40. Chris Simpson on June 2, 2023 at 9:41 am

    Please never stop what your doing. I watch every detecting page but I know your gonna teach me something when I watch . That’s miles ahead of just watching someone else dig high tones. Love you man. You ever in Baltimore would LOVE to take you to a spot that is 1700s to present and miles long. Insanity.

  48. Vossie at Treasure & Treats! on June 2, 2023 at 9:52 am

    WoW!! Great outing! You just got more silver coins in one day than I got all last year! I’ve just found my first silver coin for this year… but oh boy, it is a stunner – 184? Queen Vic four pence… a first for me!! Simplex on the beach… with the help of the pin-pointer! Keep sharing your fun… you inspire so many!

  49. DIG 5050 on June 2, 2023 at 9:52 am

    I’m happy to see you pulling so much silver nectar out of the grasp of Mother Earth. I saw a nice assortment of silver coinage at the wrap up, and speaking of rap, sooo funny. Thanks for taking us on your ride, Merrill. Keep Digging!

  50. John Urso on June 2, 2023 at 9:52 am

    Great job !! So many silvers !! the army is replenishing my favorite beach for old coins, it’s killing me, but what can you do, on to the next I guess.
