    The Equinox sucks

    Sunday morning last: I go back to where Ronstar found a Barber dime. The Saturday he found it, I gridded with the Nox an hour later. Zip. The next day I go back with the Etrac and gridded the same 100 sq feet-- Score! Just 5' away from Ronstars plug: 1937 Merc. this isn't the first time...

    While Ronstar is busy showing off... lol

    Our schedules were at odds today-- I hunted in the morning for coin, then late forenoon for birds, then late afternoon we met up-- I found this little gem with the ctx. It was an iffy signal day, and I found this baby 8" deep in a spot I've been over many times-- just 4" away from a seated...

    Two in the hole

    Been a stellar week-- 2 WA's, an IH, 2 Rosies and a Merc. Today was slow. But finding two old nickels in the same hole is a first for me.

    '41 Merc

    Fellas-- never pass a coinstar w/o checking. A sweet Merc plus $2.85 in clad in the till! That's silver dime number 3 for the year out of Safeway's CS. Won't upload a pic-- we all know what they look like..

    When Ronstar is away, his buddy will play....

    Ronstar has some lame excuse for being out of town. So I went to a usual haunt, and about 100' from where he found a Peace dollar, I got a solid silver signal with my CTX. Much to my amazement, out pops an artillery shell. WTH? On the headstamp: '37mm Model 1916'. The AEF's bunkerbuster...

    Glad I dug!

    Ronstar and I met up to hunt around where he found a Peace dollar yesterday. It was Etrac's turn, so promptly got to work-- today was going to be an 'iffy' signal day. 4 hours later, had a Merc and a war nickel in the pouch. Not going to bother with pics-- we all know what they look like...

    The Nox lost today...

    Yesterday evening went back to a usual haunt and wandered with the 800-- park1 Andy S. I hit a wheat, then gridded out from there until dusk-- total of 4 wheats and misc clad. Wasn't until I got home that I discovered one of those wheats was a '06 Indian. Damned cool, as I haven't found many...

    One way signals

    Ok-- I have spent a couple hundred hours on the Nox now. One thing I have learned, in my conditions, that you dig a one way signal, as long as that one way signal is repeatable at 90 degrees. On my ctx/etrac you are pretty much guaranteed trash with these signals. But over the last couple...

    Another first for me

    Ronstar and I got up early, headed to a usual haunt. Trying to beat the heat, but couldn't avoid the forest fire smoke. Additionally, been having a slow spell, so really wanted to dig some silver. Took the Nox for a walk. Very first signal (park 1) a 24. "Cool, a wheetie", I thought. Out...

    Nox-- first impressions

    11 hours of heavy swinging on the 800-- I was using a modified AndyS for Park 1 and original Park 2, and went to a local spot I've hit pretty hard over a couple years. My plan was to dig everything, and everything was dug. As I'm a glass is half empty kind of guy, I usually focus on the...

    Nox 800 coming in the mail.

    It hasn't even arrived yet and I'm feeling a bit of buyer's remorse, especially as my etrac/ctx bring home the bacon. Was wondering how the transition was for those that added it to their collection, coming from different ML models. It will be weird going back to a a numeric dial again, like...

    Maybe I should quit detecting...

    as there is no way in Hades I will top the last couple weeks anytime soon: a Walking Liberty Half, a Peace Dollar, an 1864 Indian Head... and today I had my first 5 silver day. Ronstar and I were going back to a usual spot-- he was stuck in a meeting, I wasn't, so I arrived 15 min before him...

    Not to sound like Penthouse forum....

    but I really never thought this would never happen to me. Was detecting a tiny permission lawn-- about 10'x 10'-- that had been detected by two other people before. I got near the sidewalk edge-- poured in '44-- and started getting iron interference and a little hi tone chirp that took my CTX...

    Weekend finds... my oldest coin!

    Well, my old buddy Ronstar decides to be normal this weekend and hang with something called, 'a family'. I decided to hit the usual places in town. Near a sidewalk, I hit a zinc signal about an inch down. Pinpointed the target with the carrot, then flipped it out with my shovel. Almost...

    My heart still stops....

    when I find big silver in the wild. Went on an atv ride with Ronstar yesterday-- he and the rest of the group pressed on while I came back early. Felt the itch so went out to a spot where RS found a Merc a couple weeks ago. I decided to hit to see if he missed anything (lord knows I do), as...

    Barber in the hole!

    Ronstar and myself decided to hit a 1950's elementary school/city park yesterday. Ron beat me by 10 minutes, so I just started swinging, not sure where he had been already. Eighty cents in clad and 25 minutes later, the CTX gave me jumbled readings: 12 33, 12 41, 12 29, 12 40. It wasn't...

    Barber in the hole!

    April snow showers today and with a break in the weather just had to go out--decided on a spot where I have found some very old coins-- by ID standards. Ronstar was invited but decided to snuggle with his wood stove. Etrac with the Nel Tornado was the weapon of choice today. 3 minutes in--...

    Surprise find...

    I piggybacked this on Ronstars last post, but I'll make it its own. I thought this was a jean rivet, as I found one a couple feet away. Going through my bag last night,... shazam! The scratch on the coin looks old, so I don't think it was my shovel. It has the diameter of a dime, but is a...

    Looks like I'll have my first return

    Found this in a spot Ronstar and I hunt-- during the war the apartments were used by recruits out of basic for radio training, and Walt was a radio operator in that conflict.. It rang up as a penny. The Driscoll's are a well-known pioneer family in the area, and it was pretty easy to find his...

    Quick morning hunt before the downpoor.

    Ronstar kicked ass yesterday, my turn was today. Got up early, wasn't planning on going out, but when something is on your mind, you just have to scratch that itch. Ron had family duty, so I went back to a spot we hit once, where I found a Merc, and got these babies in quick succession. On...
