Uncovering Hidden Treasures: My Epic Mistake Led Me to Gold

Uncovering Hidden Treasures: My Epic Mistake Led Me to Gold

In this video, I’ll share my story about how my mistake led me to gold. I’ll show you how you can make the same mistake and find your own hidden treasures, if you’re willing to put in the time with a metal detector.
I ignored the signals that the beach was giving me and moved away from the most logical treasure spot but it ended up with some gold in my pocket. You’ll want to watch this video. You will learn a bit about beach metal detecting and you will see some treasure pulled from the sand.

    Nice to see what you find, but it would be more beneficial to see how you have your Manticore set up for ferrous limits, sensitivity, and stability levels.

    Any metal detector on DRY sand will ding if you go over it with a detector.

    I had a great day in the water with my new manticore while at Honeymoon island, FL. I found 5 rings. 2 silver 1 gold. I had 2 rings in 1 scoop. Just a great day in the water with perfect conditions.

    Merrill, yours are the most interesting videos on metal detecting, and I am always on the lookout for Metal Detecting New York City. Keep em coming and stay safe.

    No beaches in Wyoming!

  16. @TUBEORATER on December 31, 2023 at 8:55 am

    It took me years to dump all of the junk jewelry and stuff that I had found over a decade.
    It felt good.
    Kept all the silver coins and rings…and like 20lbs of copper.
    Not much gold in Wa.

  17. @Ful-OGold on December 31, 2023 at 8:55 am

    You are making me want to go coin hunting again. But I get so sick of idiots coming up to me or people calling the cops.

  18. @haithamalsawadi7039 on December 31, 2023 at 8:55 am

    Love watching your videos so I want to get a rig. Iโ€™m also at the beach I have an offer to get a equinox 800 for $300. Or I was going to buy a minelab xterra. Brand new for $270 my question is ,is the equinox really that much better of a detector?

  19. @Fred-tr8zg on December 31, 2023 at 8:56 am

    Nicely done I enjoyed the video. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

    Been there at stupid dark hours, look forward to september when I can sleep again !

  21. @Chris-ch5nb on December 31, 2023 at 8:58 am

    Iโ€™ve watched a few videos and I love the content and the topic. But, the interjections of Hagen daas and sushi etc are just too long and too repetitive. Really makes me skip around or want to stop watching.

    But, thank you for sharing.

    When a diamond flashes blue it’s true, when a diamond flashes yellow, give it to a different fellow

    Wow your videos are over-the-topโค question are you a metal detectorist or a treasure hunter when people ask you on the beach what are you doing I say I’m metal detecting they go oh oh but buddy when I tell them I’m a treasure hunter the look on their faces it’s a whole new excitement๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

    I know there is a point and time when I transition to beach detecting. This is very helpful! Thank you!

    I think those letters in the ring were initials of a married couple.

  35. @Chrissers2010 on December 31, 2023 at 9:19 am

    From your top 5 rated detectors, which one or two are the easiest to use (interface etc.)? I want to make a significant upgrade in my metal detector. Excellent saltwater use is important.

  36. @socalmetaldetecting on December 31, 2023 at 9:22 am

    Iโ€™m learning a TON from your videos about beach hunting! The science behind the sand!

  37. @Windsurfingaddict on December 31, 2023 at 9:22 am

    Iโ€™m moving next door to you and when I see you going metal detecting on the beach Iโ€™ll be lurking around in same area looking for rings ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ you have so much luck ๐Ÿ€ with them, enjoyed watching
    PS. Nice to see sushi is back ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜Š

    Can you school us about pinpointers? From a durability and ease of use point of view.
    If you already have, can you pinpoint me to that show?
    Love your style and attitude!

  39. @numismaticstacker on December 31, 2023 at 9:28 am

    Great video! Gold is awesome to find!

  40. @refresh5690 on December 31, 2023 at 9:28 am

    Thanks for making these videos ๐Ÿ™‚ I really enjoy them, it’s really fun the effects you put on when you find gold/silver! I haven’t found any gold yet after 3 years of metal detecting but I am going to Cyprus in 3 weeks so hopefully I’ll find some then. Atleast I have found some cool stuff like sword parts from the 1500s!

    Look at the sea glass, thatโ€™s pricey stuff too.

  43. @sanyo8440 on December 31, 2023 at 9:31 am

    Aren’t you afraid of muggers or something? How do you stay safe at night? My neighborhood is _reasonably_ safe yet I’ve had a few creepy encounters with one guy reaching into his pocket on me, thank God it was just an apple. Never went outside after 10 PM again ๐Ÿ˜…

  44. @603livefreeordie on December 31, 2023 at 9:34 am

    Truly amazing! Congrats ! from New Hampshire 03054… The skills you have and the years of knowledge cant be beat. Seriously buddy you and the Nox800 is like He-man with the Sword of Grayskull.. No joke..

  45. @andreweast2121 on December 31, 2023 at 9:34 am

    Merrill, you made a critical mistake after you found the gold cross by moving away from the area after you found it….chances were extremely high that there was also a huge gold chain that broke off and was somewhere near that cross…..not sure if it was edited out but wondering if you went back and canvased the area?

  46. @dave2456 on December 31, 2023 at 9:36 am

    do you sell the rings you find?
