  1. A Unique Accidental Coin Find

    I think these type of finds are cool. I to found one here in Oz ,which i posted awhile back. They are keepers and make excellent additions to the display cabinet. Well done Steve.
  2. 11 Gold Coins Found + More

    I wanna stab myself in the neck when i see such things. Well done to the lucky finder. My dream is to find a Gold Coin.....Been at it 3 years now.
  3. Oh Man!

    Excuse me.......! Just found this the other day, 1929 Centenary of Western Australia Medal(Coin)...really BIG!. These were made in 5 x variations to my knowledge,Gold ,Silver,Bronze(Dutch Gold) Copper and a Lacquered copper patina finish,put out by the Perth Mint. Absolutely stocked...really big ,heavy and this one BRONZE ,weighting about 33 grams from memory and 4mm thick. Anyways thought it best to end on a positive as we ve all been there in lean times. Chin up fellas . Ps Pic Alongside an Australian 20cent coin for size reference. Hope you like. Ash
  4. Glad Steve and Mike sorted it all out. Seem d to me just mis understandings/translations and also possibly a age thing. We are all getting older. Older i get the less i like see hear disputes and the like.Really no need for it. This Nokta....starting to get me interested. Wonder if the a new machine will have 8 x AA battery,waterproof ect? Also regarding the Equinox.Ive heard that in prospecting mode ,that those 2 x frequencies wont be"MULTI" I might be wrong hear but thought id get it out there.....Just to get burned..!....
  5. Hi, Regarding the VLF detectors.Can someone answer for me what constitutes a VLF with good discrimination?.I feel to discriminate that speed is a factor as well.Otherwise no matter how good,if a target is next to iron it will read off a good hit. The Deus has fast reactivity,so is this now a good discriminator.Between ferrous and non ferrous?. How does this compare to say the Nokta Impact for speed discrimination. Thanks in advance Ash
  6. Video - Equinox 800 Depth Test

    Ive found like so many who own the CTX ,that you will be amazed at how it pulls "Good" targets from trash when going slow and High trash is selected(And Fast Recovery on)My experience has been in this Target separation,even when the Threshold is in a constant Null that a coin like target will give signal. One of the only draw backs ive found with the CTX are in relation to DD coil not giving any signal from the blade like field it put outs in relation to orientation of target to trash. Anyway ,my 2nd machine will be this Equinox 800 when they arrive here in Oz.Also wonder on the Mono type coils for now or future given the problem above.However wont be holding my breathe on that one as VLF s need all the help they can get for discrimination/depth so mono s are out for now i suppose!.
  7. Minelab Equinox Multi-IQ And Search Modes

    If the price is right im keen.Currently got the AT Max on hold because of this new Machine.However i feel this "New" I Q business really isn't far off the same old thing in regard to tweaking the Frequencies.I don't doubt it,s better tuned to hot ground and hope the higher frequencies can hit small gold .Is the coil a DD or a Concentric ???. Would be great if mono style coil as reading signals from all angles improves over certain directions compared to the DD's.
  8. Thanx for the replys and im glad you liked it.Something a little different for me to find.
  9. Yep....CTX Top line way to small.Find it hard to see what mode your in etc etc
  10. Thought it might be a good place to share some pics of finds that dont make it into the other thread of AWESOMENESS. Found this belt buckle at a Western Australian Ghost town.It s Gold plated.....i think....definitely gold but not solid.Has the words "Swift and Sure" on it with a sea Anchor and some what appear to be Paddles/Oars.Seems like a Navy style Theme.Has the Martin Patented stamped on it. Anyways hope you like .....i do. If you have anything similar ,would love to see. Ash Edited this post and added last pic.Found the 1/2 penny to have been shot at some point...something different and also these cool emblems off what i think were trophies.
  11. Thanks for reply Steve. Yes i know impossible to do a comparison on what has not already hit the market.What about same technology that we already know about that the Equinox is going to be using.That multi frequency,harmonic off the main frequency thingy???.I thought the Fisher CZX is one in the list i was after.As mentioned go easy on me....im not a tech.
  12. Garrett AT Max Instructional Video Series

    I really like this machine .already have a CTX but am in the market for a second.Tossing up between the MAX and OX 600....mmmmmm
  13. I was wondering about this new machine to hit the market and do believe other manufactures are also releasing soon, the same or very similar type of technology.I dont belive it s new.Can we obtain a list of the main players who will be releasing something similar so i may do a comparison.I think Fisher has one but dont think the At Max coming soon is the same.I m asking this as im not 100% tech savy but dont believe Minelab is the first here or by any means the best.In saying that ,this machine looks very sweet indeed.Also last point.In regard to reactivity speed ,where does the AT Max come in.Thanks in advance.
