“I bought a Minelab Explorer SE for myself and a Minelab Safari for my wife on the 26th of March this year, the past two months we have been treasure hunting in different areas (where I think the pro’s has not been yet) and enjoy every minute of treasure hunting. The most significant find was a copper nail possibly dating back to the 1800’s as well as a button which possibly belonged to a soldiers uniform, a watch and some cheap rings, besides this we discovered 340 coins!!!”
