    mate just wondering what the laws are on finds?and how close you are allowed to get to old castles etc!?I’m from scotland don’t know if the laws are different up here!thankyou

  3. pondguru says:

    Unless there are protected status you can get right up to castles but it depends on the owner and how close they will let you detect since they may be living in the castle.
    The laws on treasure are the same in Scotland as they are in England I think. Basically if 2 or more silver / gold coins from the same period in history are found in the same area of the same field it is usually classed as a hoard and needs recording with Portable Antiquities Scheme. Gold / silver artifacts are also covered.

    I want to take up metal detecting, but not sure what to buy……. budget £150 – 200, any suggestions?

  12. pondguru says:

    Personally speaking, I’d go for a used Garrett Euroace. I’ve just sold one for a mate with a whites bullseye probe for £215 on ebay. It was a great detector and well worth the £279 they normally sell for when new.

    Just thanking you for posting such a clear, easy to understand video on pinpointing, it’s helped me a lot.

  16. pondguru says:

    I really need to update this video as this one was shot with my old SD camera and its a bit rough. Now that I’m a bit better at making videos I could do a better job now but thanks for appreciating this one.

    I’ve just bought the Garrett Pro Pointer from Detecnicks, hopefully it’ll be delivered by the weekend and if the weather holds I’ll be able to try it out. I really enjoy your metal detecting videos, when I find something decent I’ll send it to you for one of your ‘find of the month’ uploads.

  18. pondguru says:

    That would be awesome. The next Worldwide Metal Detecting Finds video should go up this weekend with any luck.

    I currently have a Whites Prizm 5 metal detector but I’m thinking about upgrading to the Coinmaster GT have you had any experience with this detector?

  25. pondguru says:

    It’s not a detector I’m familiar with unfortunately.
