  1. Copper non-key date pennies are now worth more than double their face value, according to Coinflation copper valuation. I have a big water cooler bottle about half full of 'em. Getting rich! LOL!
  2. Thought I would show the Wheat Penny a little respect today and post my finds.. The lowly Wheat Penny is usually only givin credit to be an indicator of possible silver in the area, so we are happy to dig them.. Today was a no silver kind of day but a couple of Wheat Pennies helped save my otherwise lackluster hunt.. I had a moment of excitement when I saw a 1914 on one of my Wheats with a little mint mark on it..I was hoping I had finally found the rare 1914 D.. After I pulled out my magnifying glass I realized it was a San Francisco Mint version which is still a respectable semi key date coin at just over 4 million mintage.. I also found semi key date 13 S Wheat at just over 6 million mintage.. Other Wheats found today were 1911, 1925 S, 1928 S and three Wheats from the mid 40s.. The two Semi key date Wheats are probably worth far more then any silver I might have found today so I thought I would show them off.. The Equinox did a great job finding these today.. A couple of them were real close to iron or had iron in the hole with them.. This area has been hit multiple times with my CTX, E-Trac and friends V3i.. Only thing left is the tough signals.. Bryan
  3. Stopped at a park yesterday because I saw they had removed some grass from an area. First target within 3 minutes was a 56 rosie, the only coin in the spot. I went to the zoo today where they had dug up an old dead tree, only target within 5 minutes was a ugly old Merc. I was running Park 1, 2-tone, tone break set at 23, recovery 7 and iron bias 1 It was great to swing faster than I ever could with the CTX, I had to cover ground fast because my time on both days was very limited. Both dimes were hitting at 26-27 and were very shallow.
  4. Little Nox Action Today

    Nice weather today for a change- actually spring like. Park 2 speed 7 used to locate all.
  5. A Couple Firsts

    I did a thread recently where I was hunting local park areas and wanting to experiment with "cherry picking" settings that would net me the most coins the fastest without bogging down into overly serious detecting. I normally hunt 50 tones with no items rejected, which works well but which requires me to work slowly analyzing targets sounds. Time is limited so I wanted to get out and cover some area. The settings worked well enough to get a pile of coins out of some trashy modern park settings. Park 1 - Multi-IQ 50 Tones Iron Bias 0 Detect Speed 6 unless in dense trash, then 7 Auto (Pump) Ground Balance Sensitivity 21 or 22 depending on EMI All items from 21 on down rejected except for 13 For nickels I was being really picky, just digging good, solid 13 readings. I do know nickels can also read 12 but I did not want to recover too many pull tabs so kept this very narrow. And I have to note - I am experimenting!! There is nothing magic about these settings, just something I am trying in modern trash. Anyway, it worked halfway well and I was able to readily skim coins out of a modern trashy park area with minimal trash, and nearly all that being square tabs that read 13 like the nickels. Very little high end trash. I was getting quite a bit of ferrous high tone squeaking but only a couple that tempted me enough to dig them anyway, and got a couple nails. This weeked I wanted to try an area I had cherry picked before for copper/silver range targets, but my ear is better tuned now so wanted to give it another go with more open settings than above but still not wide open full tones. I employ different levels of intensity in my hunting that varies by location, time constraints, and my mood. Sometimes I want to recover all non-ferrous targets. Sometimes just copper/silver. And sometimes varying levels of in between. This next round I opened up the discrimination a little. Park 1 - Multi-IQ 50 Tones Iron Bias 0 Detect Speed 6 unless in dense trash, then 7 Auto (Pump) Ground Balance Sensitivity 21 or 22 depending on EMI All items from 16 on down rejected except for 12 & 13 This time however I rejected everything from 16 on down except 12 & 13. The goal here is zinc pennies read 21 and since I hate them it makes for my regular cutoff point in areas from around 1930 and newer. However, in older areas there are two things in particular to pay attention to, assuming you still want to reject some stuff. Indian Head pennies overlap the zinc penny range. New zincs come in at 21 but corroded ones will read lower. Indian Head pennies can read in that same "high teens / low twenties" range. Also, a $5 gold coin will normally read at 18. Ground and age can pull readings lower, and so I decided on 17 on up as being good, but 17 is debatable. I will decide on that later after digging enough 17 targets. But 18 on up has to be open because I am determined to find a $5 gold coin with Equinox. I also wanted to open up the nickel range as older nickels seem to hit around 12 and newer ones more in the 13 region. Again, just experimenting! I also need to note that I am using Park 1 - target id can vary depending on mode and frequency. I told myself I would skip shallow zinc signals but I have a real problem passing on clean sounding targets, and so dug most of these since they are shallow and easy to pop. I did finally make myself stop though as it is a time waster - zinc pennies were the most common "trash" target followed again by some square tabs. Like I noted, I detected this area before, so once I pulled the about 20 zincs aside I ended up with 10 copper pennies, 4 dimes, and 3 nickels, none all that old. However, I got three special signals. The first was as nice a 12 reading as I could hope for, just a nice clean, mellow tone. And down about 8" appears my first ever Liberty or "V" nickel, a 1909. Some time later and maybe 100 feet away another identical, mellow 12 reading - I just knew it had to be another nickel. This one was down under a tree root at about 8" and popped out of the ground dry and green - another V nickel, 1898 this time. My first Liberty nickels, and two in one day! Some time later, with time running out, I got a messy 19 reading. It was trashy sounding but just good enough to get me to dig, and my first Indian Head penny pops up next to some ferrous trash. So after 45 years of detecting, why am I only now finding my first old coins of these types? I was born in Anchorage, Alaska and lived there my entire life up until 5 years ago. Anchorage was founded in 1915 and most of that area is paved over core downtown. Most of the town is far newer. I considered 1930's coins to be the great old finds, with only a couple ever from the 20's, and never anything from the teens or earlier. The bottom line is these types of coins just did not exist where I lived. And then I got into nugget detecting...... So anyway, a couple firsts for me, and that alone made it quite fun. I used some cleaning tips mentioned on this other thread (steel wool) on the 1909 Liberty but left the other alone as cleaning it would probably make it worse. The IHP has a couple weird corrosion blobs on it so have not messed with it. Anyway, opening up the extra notches did not get me into too much trash except for the zincs I did not resist digging. The big lesson is that deep Liberty nickels, or at least these two, were the most wonderful mellow 12 signals one could imagine. So my current working theory is newer nickels will tend towards 13 and older ones 12 while in Park 1 mode.
  6. Some Coins And A Ring

    I am hitting some already hit park areas but going about it a bit more methodically cleaning up stuff I missed. The areas are not particularly old and so the last couple hunts I have rejected everything from 21 on down except for 13. I am in Park 1 but pushing sensitivity a bit too high probably at 21 or 22 so I am getting quite a bit of very high tone ferrous falsing in the high 30s. Iron bias set at zero. I have been half tempted to either block 39 and 40 or set them as a low tone ferrous. I do like hearing them though as 39 in particular is a “tell” that an item is ferrous so I may have to try the low tone experiment. Or lower my sensitivity. Or maybe even try iron bias! Still I am not getting hardly any ferrous fool me enough to actually dig it. The high tone, high 30s signals are very wishy washy whereas a coin signal tightens up and normally hits in the 20s except for those quarters coming in around 30. I am basically cherry picking the copper penny/dime/quarter results and “hard 13” nickels. I am hitting some not particularly old but quite trashy locations and don’t want to get too ridiculous chasing targets and so far this is working pretty efficiently. If the areas were older I would open it up down to 17 and include 12 for the nickels. What I am using now makes a nice cherry picking mode for newer picnic type areas. Been running recovery speed at 7 or maybe 6. Getting very little trash fooling me at this point, especially in the high end. Probably more square tabs at 13 faking me out due to digging nickels than anything else. Only a few bottle caps. The areas have been hunted but I can tell people have passed on the nickel range due to all the trash, so even going for real hard 13 hits only is still piling up the nickels. When I say "hard 13" I mean a target that hits real hard at 13 and exhibits "roundness". The only other target tends to be newer square tabs, which being thinner and square generally do not sound as solid to me. The ones that trick me are less than an inch deep and at that point just easier to pop them out then spend time trying to figure out if they are good or not. 24 quarters, 35 dimes, 31 nickels, and 46 pennies. Eight were wheatback pennies so silver coins were possible but did not get any this time. I did get a nice little sterling silver and opal ring however so I guess that counts! Interesting these days since copper pennies are no longer dropped that with clad dimes still being dropped dimes have caught up to copper pennies numerically as a find these days. Sure was not that way when I took up coin hunting over 40 years ago! Of course wheaties came out of the ground practically new back in those days. Seems the coins and I are both aging.... Been kind of fun coin hunting again. I normally do gold nuggets and jewelry with coins more a bycatch while jewelry detecting. Right now though I want to take advantage of wetter spring weather to hit park areas that get too dry later to be doing much plugging. Easier digging now and much better chance of the ground recovering well. Once the summer heat starts I will get back to my regular detecting but for now this is a lot of fun as a change of pace for me.

  7. I went on an easter camping trip to try prospect for some gold, there was a lot of unexpected overnight rain so the creeks I was going to detect with the GM1000 were a bit flooded so I didn't bother creek detecting, I went up into the hills for a day and found one tiny spec in an old tailings pile with my Monster so I decided I'd head down to the post office and send it away for the repair as its speaker has an issue. This forced me to use the Equinox 800 for the rest of my trip, I hadn't really used it since I got it, other than playing around for 5 minutes or so here and there as I was just doing so well with my Monster. I detected around the area a bit with the Equinox and found no gold so I decided I'd give it a try coin hunting after seeing a couple of tourists in the playground the night before using their phones as torches trying to find something they'd obviously dropped in the gravel and were unable to find, I went down to the lakeside the next morning at 5am before the crowds of tourists arrived and run the Equinox over the playground and the lakeside beach trying to find good targets. There was just an unacceptable amount of junk there, I was terribly disappointed, not so much I couldn't find any good targets, but just how many bottle caps and pull tabs and screwed up tin foil wrappers were scattered in the beach gravel in what should be a pristine beach, damn litter bugs. I spent a couple of hours in the area trying to work out how to block out all the bad targets by lowering the sensitivity and notching out bad targets as I was finding them but I just had no luck so I decided the area was too difficult for me to detect with a detector I'm not overly familiar with using. I wasn't going to give up as I was staying in the area another day so I used that next day to go coin hunting again, thinking of where to go was the problem but my wife suggested I go to one of the Ski fields and detect under the ski lifts, surely people drop a lot of stuff from their pockets on the ski lifts. Seemed a good idea so off I go. In only two hours of hunting I managed to get a good haul, $13.65 and a silver ring. There was virtually no junk except a solid 33 on the Equinox which ended up being one of the blades off a snow maker gun which snapped off, I wouldn't want to be around when that went flying off the thing, probably shot itself into the ground Myself and my daughter detecting for coins, she's only 7 and she got stuck into it before I'd had time to adjust the length on the GBP. The Equinox just slammed hard on $1 and $2 coins, a solid 22 every time in Park 1, the only mode I used, I was able to max out the sensitivity up there the entire time, one coin was at least 25cm deep, I was ready to give up digging and then it popped out. I didn't remember to take my Garrett Carrot so I had to rely on the pinpointing of the Equinox, it seemed to work extremely well, usually always directly in the center of the coil. I need to work out how to use it better in trashy areas but in nice clean areas it's brilliant at finding coins. I also need to get better at using it to find gold, but at this stage I'd have trouble picking it up over my Monster if I was going out prospecting. All of this was only in a small area, I only spent about 2 hours up there and it was all within about a 35 meter by 10 meter area under a ski lift. I can imagine if I spent the entire day I could come home with quite good collection of goodies. I also tested the Equinox on the Arrow River, A place that seems only suitable for PI detectors, the riverbank is absolutely full of black sand, all my other detectors struggle to work there, the GBP and GM1000 are useless there. The Equinox on the other hand worked quite well, it handled the black sand no troubles at all. I was very surprised by this but happy just the same.
  8. Why Dig Nickels?

    Aside from the fact you might find gold jewelry in the nickel range, why do you hunt for nickels? I also am a detector nut myself and do understand the concept of detecting for anything just for the fun of it. When I do coin hunt however the fact is most older nickels I find are in such poor condition that it’s doubtful they are even worth face value. Yet most silver coins I find look as new as the day they were dropped. Many silver coins found will grade out decently, but that is very rare for old nickels. This means the chance of finding high value silver coins is vastly better than the chance of finding high value nickels. Or so I believe. Newer nickels are in better condition, but key date Jefferson’s are not exactly worth a fortune, and they are few and far between. Then there is the fact that going after nickels usually involves more trash per coin, at least in my experience. If I focus on silver dimes and higher there is very little trash that ends up in my pouch. Anyway, is anyone digging nickels for any real reason other than that finding an old Buffalo or V nickel is a fun find? What’s the highest value nickel anyone has found? I have some War nickels that might be worth a few bucks, but that’s it for me.
  9. I was invited to a permission by my hunting partner and friend Flysar yesterday... a turn of the century Rodeo Grounds and Picnic area. He has hunted this location a few times previously, and has found a Barber Quarter, a Barber Dime and a Buffalo, but warned me that the targets are sparse and the ground is loaded with iron. We were both very curious about what the Equinox could do in this environment. There were three of us hunting, I had the E600, he had his Deus and the third was swinging an AT Max. We started by marking a few targets.. I set out in Park 1, 50 tone, Recovery 3 and Iron Bias 0. I marked 6 targets and he marked about the same with his deus. As I mentioned in another thread, the Equinox was deadly on deep rusty iron. In a few cases, it was even giving me id's in the high 20's-low 30's and never bouncing up to high 30's. The Deus on the other hand, marked 6 or 7 old rusty bottle caps (a few of which the Equinox showed in the zinc range... 18-21). I will say, when comparing the marked targets between the three machines... we usually ended up with 1 "I would dig it" (and usually from the machine that marked the target), and 2 "I wouldn't dig it" by the other two machines. So, with the testing results ending inconclusive, we decided to break off and hunt. Over all we spent a solid 3 hours around the entrance and stadium of the rodeo grounds and other than Flysar finding a wheat, no old coins were found, only a few pennies, a clad dime and a clad quarter between the three of us. We decided to call it a day... mostly discouraged. As my friends drove away, I decided to take one more pass on the outside edge of the grounds, near the horse trailer entrance next to a large pasture. My first target was the penny with a cross stamped out in the middle. I thought to myself... "well that is a good sign". Within 30 minutes, in an area about 20 yards square... the other 5 targets in the picture along with the cross penny were in my pocket. I had spent all morning chasing iffy and sometimes repeatable high tones, digging all manner of iron bits (one square nail, which I was happy to find), working hard to try and make good targets out of the clicks and wheezes... and boom! these targets came in with roundness of tone and clarity. No doubt they were diggable. The three silver dimes all presented at 26-28, the war nickel was 13-14, the wheat was 24-26 and was the deepest at about 5". The other targets were 3-4". Interestingly enough, the ground in this area was dense and hard packed, but not dry... it had plenty of moisture, but it nearly took a digger to break the plug. All three dimes hid inside the plug from my Carrot on '3' with not response. I had to break open the plugs to find them with the pinpointer, and only after standing up to re-sweep the hole and plug with the 600 to find out where the target had gone. My takeaway is to never give up on a site, especially that has old ground. The targets are out there. Thanks to Flysar for inviting me along and giving me my best silver day to date. Tim.
  10. I dig a lot of ring tabs and their decapitated brethren -- beavertails, and thus my avatar. Since those were used between 1965 and 1975 and likely dropped in that time window you get both an upper and lower bound ("someone was here drinking out of a can as recent as 1965"; ditto "...as long ago as 1975") on a site's usage. (Like always there are exceptions, such as a site being backfilled with material from another location). I'm wondering if a similar conclusion can be drawn from crown caps. Of the (not nearly as many as you, Strick) bottles caps I've dug I recall one specifically still having the inner cork seal, many with the plastic seal, and a moderate number with neither. 'Neither' could mean it never had one, it had a cork one that decayed over the years (my gut feel for most likely explanation), or a plastic one that someone intentionally removed. Does anyone know the time window of usage for cork inner seals and/or the initiation of the plastic liners? I recall when I was either in elementary school or more likely, high school, a Coca Cola promotion where the plastic liners of crown caps had NFL emblems (teams, players, can't remember details) and that sending in a complete set would return a (American) football as your reward. (I still have mine....) So that would have been 1970 or earlier. Still, there could have been multiple years when both cork and plastic were simultaneously in use. Addendum: The football I received from that promotion had an imprinted (not ink-signed) autograph of Tom Moore (the running back, not the coach) and I justed looked him up on Wikipedia. He retired after the 1967 season.
  11. I have mentioned this park before. I use it as my testing grounds. Mainly because it is one of the oldest parks in the town where I work, but also because it has been detected hard over the years, including by me during my lunchtime as often as I can get out there. Over the past 2 years, I have probably logged 60 or 70 hours at this park. Last summer, I thought I had eeked out the last wheatie by running my Vaquero in All Metal (after spending the prior year and a half hunting it with an AT Pro, ETrac, CTX, Explorer SE Pro, and even a few times with the ATX). Last fall, I hunted this location 3 or 4 times during lunch and came away with goose eggs. So of course, when I received my Equinox E600, I couldn't wait to see if the hype about Equinox and pounded locations was at all true. To all on this forum, my story will come to no surprise. And even thought I trust the members of this site implicitly, and the results your all were sharing since the release... I am still gobsmacked with my own results. I played a little with the different modes, but for the most part, I ran Park 1, Noise Cancel, Ground Balance (not tracking), Recovery 3 (max on the 600), Iron Bias 0, 50 tones (a bit in 2 tone), Multi-Frequency. Over the past 3 weeks, 30 minutes here, 45 minutes there, an odd 1 hour hunt... I have spent about 5.5 hours swing time. My 45 minute hunt today rewarded me with the oldest of all - 1917-S, and when I dropped the carrot into the hole to measure the depth, the top was below ground level... similar to the tax token I dug last week. In addition to these oldies, I also found 35 Lincoln memorials (most copper), 7 nickels (all Jeffersons), 5 clad dimes, and a clad quarter. All I can say about the Equinox is... wow. Tim
  12. I pulled a Steve tonight and sold my CTX....I've found so much with this machine that it's paid for itself easily..I still have a 5 gallon bucket full of coins that I need to cash in...not to mention all the gold and silver jewelry that it found for me. In the end it was an easy decision...because I have a new CTX that has barely been used At any rate I made a deal with myself a while ago that I was not going to buy any new detectors unless I got rid of a few..... (Merton are you listening).....Hopefully the 800 will be here before our Pismo trip next month. Also on the chopping block was the AT Gold I bought for Lisa several years ago. She proclaimed that she no longer wanted to use it after a short stint on the beach with the CTX...I'm thinking she will like the light weight of the Equinox and may want to use it also. The 800 is going to be good for my relic spots thats for sure.. strick
  13. War Nickle Vdi's

    I posted this on another forum as well looking for some input on war nickle VDI's I've been hunting an old baseball field for the last couple of days, cherry picking though an unbelievable amount of trash targets. I scored silver 2 days in a row, using a fast recovery speed and basically 2 tones. I decided today to open up the nickle range to see if I could score some nickles, especially war nickles. Withing 45 minutes I had 5 nickles in my pouch, nothing old or deep, but a solid 13 VDI. I decided to go back tomorrow and see if I could pick out some silver nickles among the garbage. So, tonight I pulled out 15 or so war nickles to see what VDI I could expect, well...They read from 13 all the way to 24?? I did the test twice and the numbers differed from nickle to nickle, that just shot my narrow nickle range all to hell. Maybe someone else could pull out some war nickles and see what you come up with.
  14. Finally was able to get out with the Equinox and do a little hunting. Let’s just say I no longer wonder if the Equinox is deep.. There are a few things I would like improved but depth is definitely not a issue.. My ground is not friendly to most brands of metal detectors..The 1900 S Barber Dime was a full 8”.. The tone was a soft but solid high tone in all directions.. No iffy about it.. I also dug a copper Token the size of a nickel at a full no BS 10”.. Same situation.. soft but solid signal all the way around.. This target was near iron but not in the same hole.. A nice surprise were the Nickels that all came in at a solid 13.. All 6 Nickels I dug today including the 7” 1924 D Buffalo were only Target ID 13.. I dug several bouncy 11-12-13 signals and they were all broken or rolled up Beaver Tails.. The Barber and Indian Head Cents All had bouncy numbers but consistent high tones..The ID numbers seem to up average as they get deep..My biggest complaint is the Depth Meter and Modulation.. The Modulation is great from about 7” and beyond.. Deep Silver and copper has a very nice soft tone so you know your on to a deep coin.. There is very little Modulation above that.. I believe the Depth Meter is calibrated to quarter size targets and I think if it were calibrated to a penny or dime the meter would be more useful.. I know a lot people don’t care about that, but for my style of Turf hunting in manicured Parks, I don’t dig mid or low conductors unless they are deep. Otherwise I would spend all day digging tabs and slaw instead of Old Coins. The Equinox runs very quiet, fast and loves small targets.. Should be a Button Monster for you Relic Hunters.. Anyway, that’s my first impressions.. I only have very few hours on it and have a lot to learn yet..
  15. Well I keep pulling the lever on this slot machine named Equinox and it seems to keep coming up all cherries.lol I witnessed some phenomenal performance today. The 2 coins on the bottom found under a monster hickory tree I have swung every detector I have ever owned and coils to boot. I never found the first coin previously. So I was walking on at least these 2 coins at the bottom seems for the last 7 years. This area I think I is where the folks tied up their work animals to be in the shade and maybe why their were taking lunch. Iron city big, medium and small. This homesite has only given up one silver in all previous hunts combined using several models detectors and coils. Gotta love the Nox. And to be able to so this in this area with stock sized coil-mind boggling. Again park 2 speed 7, 0 iron bias. Thanks for looking
  16. Stuff

    PU PU Platter.
  17. Pounded site, didn't hunt all of it this morning. Previous multiple hunts yielded only 1 silver coin using other models detectors. This morning matched that. The dime could only be heard using speed 7 or 8. Checked with speed 6 no go. Two way signal only using speed 7 and 8. Park 2. Iron bias 0. This baby loves nickels. Especially those Buffaloes.
  18. Few Nox 800 Finds

    Get these out of a pounded site. A site I hunted probably hunted 20 times, an old house site, nightmare scenario to hunt. Just going in there with a 11" coil, a person might need to have their head examined. Lol Anyway the little badge thingy, Ms, Ruth Huffines was one of 12 siblings, only herself and 1 sister and brother survive. Ms Huffines is 92 years old and is doing well according to her brother who lives done the road from me. I plan to communicate with her daughter and return this to who ever wants it be it her daughter or Ms Huffines (her maiden name) she is married. The little ring says on the inside 14K GP. Looks like the plating is trying to peel off. Then the buffalo nickel. This family was a big one, and was dirt poor. Only site I have ever hunted period where I have found more nickels than dimes and quarters. Site has given up 2 war nickels previously. Oh forgot to say. The badge thing was only giving a reading of 30 in this one little spot, detector like going bonkers. Here is what was in the hole with it. Badge does airtest with a 30 in the meter too.
  19. Interesting as we normally see gold nugget videos from Oz. The finds remind me of what you would see in California gold country.
  20. This is everything I dug today. Mixed history site. Hunting for about 4 hours in the rain the whole,time. Screw caps sound warbly vs coins. There is a button in the pic, it was deep like garret propointer length deep plus 1.5" Gotta hear the Nox on deep undisturbed target. Button is real thin with design I have never seen before, I hit with shovel too. Used park 2 sens 23 speed 6, 0 iron bias. I like this detector. Almost all of these coins detected on edge. Did take a shot at a few nickel signals, did mange to find just one. Tab and ring on edge in the ground gave a rock solid 13 ID. Little closer look at the button and silver. Button has design only on edges loop missing.
  21. The Nox does well in polluted sites. Even with 11" coil. Small 20-25 minute hunt.
  22. Lonely barber dime, few wheat heads and a few memorials.
