Nick Richards's Bio

I have been metal detecting on and off from the age of 15 and about four years ago I started using a Minelab Excalibur 1000 detector that extended my search types to search underwater/surf searches if required. I have found rings, necklaces, broaches and even boats. I very much enjoy the "hunt" and being able to return something of great sentimental value to its owner is a bonus.
