Nokta AU Gold Finder Officially Introduced

Recommended Posts

sorry to derail the main point, Steve;

i was just commenting on an issue that affects a large percentage of people and seems to be ignored by manufacturers of all products.

The LEDs are certainly not anything I would depend on. Like you audio is my first filter when coin hunting; but nugget hunting I dig it all.

It says the machine makes a Low Tone for Positive Hotrocks and Iron? What about Cold Hotrocks? My Lobo makes a Boing Boing noise over them. Will this Nokta make the Boing noise too?

I am guessing that the Nokta AU Gold Finder was designed primarily for the African market but I could be wrong about that. The only retail outlet that I know of in the United States is Kellyco. Since it is a new detector and with only one retailer, most people will never have heard of or seen this detector. I have one but it sees little use as I usually toss my Gold Racer in the truck instead. I guess I may have to get more hours in with the Gold Finder and will make a point of doing that over the next month.

Now I know why so many people run red lights. Then the next time they'll sit through the green one.

Color blindness could sure be one of the reasons but I think most of it has to do more so being distracted.  We sit and sit at the light and as soon as our eyes move away from it that's the exact time when it changes.

      I was cruising through the Minelab website looking for any new bits on the Equinox and came across this marketing video that compares the detectors in the "Treasure Detector" range.  I think it's interesting, though not surprising, that the marketing hype is toned-down when the Equinox is compared to the rest of the Minelab range.

      Tom(CA) and I have been working a site that we researched that's produced several 1850's - 1860's seated coins, and some rogue early 1900's coins, as well as a variety of period relics.
      We tried to get one more trip in before Old Man Winter completely shut us down, and it did in fact shut us down, but not before I finally, got something I've been looking for for a long time, and after watching others find them over the years (I saw Tom dig three!!!), I was starting to think it would never happen.  
      Well it finally happened, and it turned out to be a good one, an 1865 San Francisco minted Liberty Half Eagle!!  
      Here she is out of the hole:

      Here she is rinsed off:


      Here's a video of the hunt:
      Less than 100 known, Mintage: 27,612

      Although the mintage of the 1865-S is quite a bit higher than the mintages of the S Mint Half Eagles from 1858 to 1864, it compares in overall rarity to the 1858-S, 1860-S and 1863-S and is only slightly less rare than the others. Almost all known examples of this date are well worn with VF and lower being all one can expect to find. The 1865-S ranks second in the entire $5 series according to average grade and I do not know of a specimen that would grade better than EF. The very few specimens that I have seen were rather softly struck and the mintmark was always quite weak.

      Thanks for looking, hopefully the next one comes easier

      Published on Aug 15, 2017 -  In this video we work on finding a promising area to set up the gold dredge and then get it up and running. We work it for a day. In the end, I pan out my concentrates, but did not capture the final pans. But I think it's an interesting video and I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did making it.
