He wrote: “The year was 2016, October. Weather forecast for the weekend suggested sunny weather. I looked at my Garrett AT Pro in the corner and at the watch that read 10 AM. The plan’s clear. Let’s go metal detecting and digging! For a while, I have been looking into one meadow through which the Austro-Hungarian soldiers retreated. The expectations were uncertain, but this hobby is not only about finding but also about the walk in the forests and about relax. It took me about an hour of walking at a calm pace to reach my destination. I took a look around at the treeline and started searching. Roughly two hours into it I still had nothing but the usual Austro-Hungarian coins and a couple of bottle caps. I moved over to the forest’s edge and towards a large spruce tree. About 10 cm far from the tree the detector signaled number 78! I dug as hard as I could and there it was! An Austro-Hungarian belt buckle – the beautiful Austro-Hungarian emblem shone bright in the sunlight after so many years. A matter of course, I took pictures right on the spot. I started to search around that place and I found few more of these beauties! So, lots of luck to you fellow diggers and may you succeed in finding!”
He is using the Garrett AT Pro metal detector.
