Adventurous Treasure Hunting Trip To The Ghost Village Manzurka (Story 9)
Finding 18th Century Siberian Coins with Minelab Explorer II
As soon as Rudolf parked the jeep, I grabbed my Explorer, got out, and began detecting. Because many treasure hunters had visited the site before, I decided to avoid the open flat areas and search through the bushes of stinging nettles. That strategy produced some great results. My first find was a Siberian coin!
A Siberian 1775 1 Kopek Minted During the Rule of Catherine the Great (1762-1796)
Then another Siberian coin came out, also completely encrusted and in even worse shape.
A Siberian 1770 1 Denga (Half Kopek) After It Was Cleaned Up
While the guys were taking a break, the girls took over and began 'swinging' the coils.
Daria Got A Good Signal
And she dug up another 'Mason' coin of the same year, 1831 1Kopek.
Irina used Nikolai's Explorer II detecting around foundations.
Irina also found some 'keepers'.
