Most all round machines will do just fine for relic hunting. You’ll also want to avoid a pulse induction machine – or PI for short. Most machines are designed for coin and jewelry hunting – especially those priced under $600 or so. Most new hobbyists tend to spend $150-$300 on their first detector. Anything below that isn’t really considered a detector – it’s considered a toy.

Depending on your machine, it may narrow the search area down to a foot or two. Headphones reduce outside noise from wind, waves, and traffic helping you concentrate on target tones, but in my opinion, the best reason to get headphones is so the general public doesn’t get involved in the search.

Scanning the garden also gives you a great opportunity to understand your detector properly. Depth indicators are notoriously inaccurate, so it’s always worth digging that bit deeper if nothing shows up. Large objects are found at a greater depth than smaller ones which tend to remain hidden particularly in mineralized soils. Buried objects disintegrate over time meaning they rust and give out major signals.
If the detector still doesn’t work it may be time to change the batteries. Batteries transmit electricity down the detector’s shaft via cables to the coil. My first decent machine was a Garrett and I found some really interesting coins and jewelry with it.
If you’re on highly mineralized ground, you’ll know because the detector will sound like a firework – turn down the sensitivity. That metal detector will end up flying off a cliff because it’s uncontrollable and really, really annoying. Your metal detector will pick up tiny traces of mineralized iron and report it as a find.
