old stirrup in down town Lake Jackson, Texas
I joined a metal detecting club in Brazoria, tx. They had a hunt arranged with a company that had bought some old houses and ball fields from the 1940's. that were going to be demoed for a new food store. We found lots of silver coins, tokens and jewelry. but this was what I thought was my best find. Using a GARRETT AT PRO 18" deep at the edge of one of the ball fields I found this stirrup solid brass. ...

Old Axe Head
I have had my AT Pro for about a month. Went out the other day in Southern Georgia and found this old axe head. Too rusted to see any writing. I have not tried to clean it. I believe it is a Kelly axe head from the late 1800's....

UK Finds
Hello everyone! I just wanted to share some of my amazing finds I've made with my AT Pro since being stationed in the UK. I am in the Airforce and have been blessed with some amazing detecting opportunities while in England. Since buying my AT Pro I have had the opportunity to detect near an 11th century priory where I unearthed a lead token and a George I trade weight from 1700's. Also, my latest and most amazing find, a Edward I long cross hammered penny! Love my detector and a big thanks to Garrett for making such an amazing machine....

Garrett Treasure Finds!
This spring I purchased an AT Pro from you after watching the show Diggers all winter. Though I've had a Garrett Detector for 20 years, it wasn't until I got the AT Pro that I started finding old coins regularly.

Our find of the year is this Sydney Smith Medal issued in 1805 by the London Maritime Museum in England. This is a very large (2 1/8" across) coin type medal made of bronze. It is in perfect condition and was about 4" down in an old house lot. We also found two silver coins and an Indian Head penny from the same lot!

My wife and I have dug 600 coins so far this year with our AT Pro.

Last hunt 2013
Been wearing out my AT Pro for 2 years finding a wide variety of great coins, jewelry, and tokens. Hunting with my buddy in Arkansas on Dec. 29th. I mentioned my goal for next year was to find a Standing Liberty quarter. The next day heading back to Texas, I stopped just off I-30. After getting permission to hunt an old homesite within 10 minutes I found the most beautiful Standing Liberty 1927 quarter. Sometimes strange things happen, and I can change my sights for next year. Thanks Kellyco and Garrett....
