Metal detector finds, treasure finds and discoveries ( 3 / 7 )

This is page 3 where we have displayed some of the treasure finds made by our customers. All of the items pictured on these 7 pages were detected with our metal detectors and 3d ground scanners. Unfortunately it's not possible to display all of the finds that have been detected because many of our customers have requested that we not post them on our website.

If you are using one of our metal detectors, ground scanners or geophysical instruments and have a treasure story by yourself, submit it to us by using our online form or via email to info@okm-gmbh.de with all the details about your finding! Please include a picture, a story explaining your find, what kind of metal detector you used and any additional information you would like to share with other treasure hunters.

A successful treasure hunter from Kermanshah in Iran informed us about his latest treasure find. With the OKM ground scanner eXp 4000 he detected this historical figure made of bronze in 1,65 m depth. The artefact has a size of 5 cm x 3 cm x 4 cm and shows the head of an animal with bent horns. Unfortunately the treasure hunter was not able to give us more detailed information. Maybe you know what ancient artifact this is?


Those antique objects have been found by a treasure hunter in Lebanon with the OKM ground scanner eXp 5000. This historical find contained different miniature statues of a size of 15 – 25 cm, as well as several coins and rings with inscription. These artifacts are probably from the 17th or 18th century. At this time the today's Lebanon still belonged to the former Ottoman Empire. Elaborations are not known.


Wars of past centuries have left our forefathers no other choice as to bury their valuables like gold, silver, jewelery and other objects of great value, to hide them from enemies. Several weeks ago a treasure hunter in Turkey found some of those buried artifacts with the OKM pulse induction metal detector Black Hawk. His treasure trove contains several coins and ancient figures which were hidden in 0,5 meters depth.


Mexico is well known for its hidden treasures. Besides the famous ruins of Tenochtitla, an ancient aztec-city, or Chichen-Itza, a historic mayan-city, there are a lot of gold and silver treasures buried deep under the Mexican ground. The search for the lost treasures was a big adventure for one of our customers too, which was worth the trouble. The treasure hunter detected an ancient treasure chest with valuable contents by using the eXp 4000 ground scanner and 3d metal detector. The coin treasure which was hidden in the chest has been detected in a depth of about 1.5 meters. A highlight for every treasure hunter.


A treasure hunter found this metal object with his Evolution 3d ground scanner, which is used for the search of precious metals like gold and silver. The hunter did not give any information about where the item was found, the possible age or the intended use of the artifact. Supposedly it's a sort of musical instrument, probably a double-rattle. There are similarities with a Brazilian percussion instrument called "caxixi" which is usually made of rattan. The treasure is made of two hollow pieces, each similar to an egg. They are connected with a curved metal handle. A seal on one of the "eggs" can be an indication that the cavity is maybe filled with little stones or beads. A band wrapped around the handle is probably added for better handling (bearing area for the thumb).


In 2010 the eXp 5000 again shows its agility for being a truly professional detector. During a customer training in Sulaymania, Iraq, a mummified cat was found. This discovery was found at a depth of about 1.5 m. In addition to the mummified animal a few coins were discovered.


The long range gold detector Bionic 01 and the undercover metal detector Rover UC, a 3d ground scanner controlled by an Android Smart Phone, have been used by Iranian treasure hunters from Kermanshah to locate a golden miniature rhyton, some oil lamps as well as several ancient coins from the Persian Empire.


About 300 pieces of these valuable precious coins have been found by a lucky Iranian treasure hunter. The coins have been located near Zanjan, about 300 km from Tehran, Iran. The Rover UC gold detector detected this hoard of coins in a depth of approx. 4.70 m under the ground.


A large amount of more than 800 pieces of ancient coins has been detected by treasure hunters in Syria. They found the hoard by using the eXp 4000 metal detector and 3d ground scanner. This coin cache is very valuable and the value of each single coin is estimated from 150 - 8000 Euro.


This treasure find is a sword found by a customer from Kermanshah, a city in the west of Iran. The material is a mixture of iron/lead/copper/tin/gold/silver and antimony. This metal detector find belongs to the Sassanian Empire in the region.
