Metal detector finds, treasure finds and discoveries ( 4 / 7 )

This is page 4 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.

An amateur actress uncovered the entrance to a 500-year-old secret chamber, which had been hidden for centuries, when she accidentally stamped her shoe through one of the floor tiles at St. Mary's Church, in Redgrave, Suffolk. Just weeks before, a geophysicist had used state-of-the-art ground scan detectors (eXp 4000, Rover C II) to locate the long-forgotten vault. There was just one last thing to do ... finding the entrance.


Once again customers from the Middle East area informed us about new finds with their treasure detector eXp 4000. The precious ancient artifacts has been excavated in Syria. These very special targets were hidden about 1,20 m underground. The measurements in eXp 4000's Ground Scan mode has been confirmed before digging with the DDV system (visual metal detector system with metal discrimination).


This medal has been detected by the 3d metal detector eXp 5000 in North Africa. It is obviously a German/Italian locket. The inscription says: "Campagna Italo-Tedesca in Africa. Italienisch-Deutscher Feldzug in Afrika." This metal detector find reminds of the Italian German campaign in Africa in 1937/1942. Mussolini's National Fascist Party created this Italian/German African campaign medal in memory of the actions of the German Africa Corps DAK (Deutsche Afrika Korps) in the North African campaign.


Since 1 year the owner of the OKM ground scanner eXp 4000 from the Balkan area is using his locating equipment with many success. He sent us some photos of his findings. Based on his historic knowledge he explored many interesting sites where possible antique treasures could be located. He scanned these areas with the 3d metal detector eXp 4000 and was able to locate many ancient items.


Some successful treasure hunters wrote an email with the following content: "Our team found some treasures. We found some bronze objects in an old tomb. The finds are from about 1700 years ago. I attached one of it with this email. It is a bowie knife. [...] I have a basic package of eXp 5000".


One of our customers from Maghreb in North Africa reported about his successful treasure hunt. He was using the 3d metal detector and ground scanner eXp 3000, the predecessor of the earth imager eXp 4000, when he located some anomalies inside the underground. The customer was searching in very uneven ground and therefor he used the 25 cm GPR probe of his geophysical phase reader to obtain accurate detecting results.


A small team of treasure hunters from the US has been made a wonderful discovery on the coast of Suriname. By using the metal detector and treasure hunting detector eXp 4000 they located a lot of glass bottles. Furthermore they discovered a spanish sword as well as silver coins.


This beautiful treasure target shows an ancient bridle which was located by an OKM customer using the 3d metal detector Rover Deluxe. This precious target has been located near to Kermanshah, a western city of Iran. The target is of high value, its estimated age is more than 2600 years. The Rover Deluxe pays for itself after this precious find.


A treasure hunter from Greece, who is using eXp 4000, found several ancient coins within an old grave. The treasure contains about 54 coins in three different sizes and motifs. Unfortunately the treasure hunter could not give any details on the age or regional provenance of the coins.


A group of historians and treasure hunters from Ukraine detected a large number of ancient greek artefacts near to the river of Dnepr.
