My First Ever Silver Coin Spill Turned Into Cointopia - Now With Day 27

Recommended Posts


I'm pretty happy about it  🙂  I've barely dented it yet, Not even one tenth of it has been detected.

Rarer yet, your digging saucer size holes and no one is running you off!  I know you filled them in and I can't even see where you've been.  Good amount of coins there for your outing.  GaryC/Oregon Coast

haha yea, I filled them all in, I couldn't even tell where I'd been... the soil was very soft being winter, it was frozen first thing in the morning but defrosted quickly, it was quite a warm day today for this time of year.  You'll notice once I swapped to the Equinox my hole sizes grew as I got a shovel to do the work 😉  This field doesn't seem to get used anymore, the council just keep it mowed I guess in case some kids go on it to play and to keep the place tidy.  I have trouble working out exactly where the Target is with the 15x12 coil, it seems to always end up behind where I think it will be, even when I try dig further back it's still behind my hole if I do a small hole 🙂

Nice finds!

Thanks everyone, I wish they made a 20" coil for the Equinox, this sort of situation it would be perfect, almost no junk, no mineralisation 🙂

I hope I can do as well tomorrow!

Simon,

This will give you a good workout on the detectors you have!  There are more things for you to discover about them rather than getting a new toy or turning a new one on.

You'll hardly be able to sleep now wondering what is still ahead.  There is also that ugly thought that pops up about someone else now detecting your spot so you have to get to those coins first.

This would be an ideal family hunt.  Your wife will be hooked and she will start doing your research.

      with the narrow (-9 - 40) VDI?  
      Could Minelab update the Nox with a full range VDI?  Couldn't that possibly help with discrimination of bottle caps?
    • By Horst
      Dear fellow hunters,
      does anybody have a listing of VDI numbers for small / medium / large Gold coins?
      Unfortunately I don't have any othwise I could run my Nox over them.
      If anybody is able to help me....... I am mostly hunting in Field 1
      Many thanks in advance

      I'm not saying you will become rich over night but it can pay off. Today was not my first time to look down at my change and take a look over it. When I did I could see it was a wheat in it and with a date of 1925. I've have had the luck to find silver in that change in the past.
      So if you be a coin hunter are just a trash and treasure hunter it pays to look.

      I was searching today for something online and came across this Utube video and thought this was a pretty smart way to put your Deep seeking PI detector to good use.  In the video they use it to locate deep targets, mark them and go back over with an etrac to determine whether to dig or not.

      it finally happened- Someone granted me permission to hunt a piece of property that dates back 1840's as build date.
      My 2 detectors are the XP ORX and Teknetics T2SE with a small Cors Shrew coil.  I imagine this place will be littered with iron objects as it was used as a farm site after 1870-ish. All the original buildings are intact, except a chicken coop or two. The place is mostly untouched and this coming spring there will be restoration performed on the main house and other buildings. Real slim window here and wouldn't you know in the coldest months here. 
      So what I'm asking from the experienced people here, and especially those with Tekentics T2 experience or XP ORX experience what things would you suggest when tackling an older place like this?
      While I've had decent luck finding coins and such in more modern areas have not hunted a site this old before. There is no idea if this property has been metal detected before so I don't know about that. Will the finds be deeper and out of reach of my equipment or masked by oodles of iron? Any guidance is appreciated and any tweaks to settings that may help find interesting things.

      A couple of days ago I went to my buddy's house to go detecting. Before we wandered off I asked him if I could try my ctx and small coil on some gold coins. As I asked this question I remembered a previous post where coin drops and old purses were mentioned. Now his family never threw anything usable awy so I asked if he still had one of those little snap purses. The kind that men and women of older generations carried. Yes, indeed he had one, and three one oz gold coins, a 1/4 oz and a mexican dos peso. Also several silver quarters and 50 cent pieces. 
      So first I laid the gold out in a line. Nice signal from 12/9 for the dollar size,12/12 or so for the 5 dollar size and 12/45 for the american oz and the mexican oz...the Kuggerand read 0/45 and went way up to the right hand corner. The silver read as you would expect. The real surprise came when I put the purse down and spread the silver and gold coin over it...no audio signal in discriminate and very odd signal in all metal...the reading was 12/30 as i recall. I was amazed...and wonder how many lost coin purses filled with gold and silver I may never have heard....
      Not many I am sure but only one would be a real heart-breaker...at least it would be if I knew...
