One of the most rewarding forms of metal detecting is hunting for relics from a previous era. Whether you find colonial artifacts, military relics, or even an old toy, its always a joy to rediscover that little piece of history.
For relic hunting, your metal detector should be able to detect tiny objects near the surface, as well as being powerful enough to find deeply buried targets. It needs excellent audio response signal to indicate targets, and automatic ground balance is another requirement.
