Good finds!  You might consider the 17 inch coil for your ctx...of course the depth readings are unreliable but it will go deep...

Glad you finally scored with the CTX. I do like the 17" myself for beach work in particular. It really helps when faced with huge areas to cover.

Thanks Fred and Steve I got the 17" but I was too sure of the beach...........also in UK the iron contamination is 2000 years old plus that may be difficult on some beaches but I am sure I will try it soon enough with a sand scoop as passed a certain depth I doubt the spade will do............regarding the depth reading I tjought they were accurate til now............................

The depth is calibrated to the stock 11 inch coil...I have not found the 17 inch to be as reliable.  It does not matter to me, if it is a "good" signal Then I dig it.

The ground coverage is what I like about the 17 inch. I use the swingy-thingy and sometimes I also hook-up the Hipstik...I look like an alien swinging all that...but, who cares?

Nice finds.

Thanks for sharing.

I wished I had been into detecting  when I lived in UK back in 2001-2003.

I sure missed out.

One of my hunting buddies uses the CTX, he always seems to beat us out with more finds.
