My new Racer 2

Post by db-uk » Sat Jul 22, 2017 3:17 pm

My new detector arrived yesterday, a luverrrllly Racer 2 :D
Only been detecting for 8 months with a Whites Treasure Master which I really like but it is a beginners machine and I simply out grew it so pondering my budget and the other machines on the market I opted for the Racer 2.
Today I went out to a permission literally a few minutes walk from my home, a farmers field which is incredibly trashy. The Treasure master never found a single thing because it is simply full of iron but the Racer 2 actually picked some targets among the crap!
First 3 coins, a modern 20p, and two pre decimal coins, a 1968 three pence and a rather nice 1966 ship half penny and a small 1cm round lead disk which is encrusted in green but careful viewing looks like there is some sort of design plus possibly lettering. I think it may be a very old flax bale seal or a simple lead token but a nice find, the other stuff was interesting relics but don't know what they could be as yet.

Overall I am very impressed with the machine, well worth the money but the only thing that spoiled my experience was the stupid headphones as every time I put the machine on the floor they got ripped of my head so cordless is the way to go!
Cheers

Off to the Beach tomorrow morning, low tide about 10:30 and as this seems to be a beach beast going by the YouTube vids I can't wait :))
