My Drought Is Hopefully Over

Recommended Posts


57buick,

Congrats on the nice finds.

As I learn my 800 I have surprised many people when I show them some of the items that I have found in the areas that have been dug through for the past 25 years.

Wish you luck and have nice digs.

I am betting nobody ever dug the four coins in one hole as on most detectors that would be a crazy all over the place target ID, I've found similar situations and the Nox can sometimes identify coins right next to other coins and give you multiple ID's but lock onto each ID rather than a random mess of numbers.

That's a fantastic result, you are going to have a ball at that location.

phrunt,

I have found 6 or 7 in the same hole, and it was all over the place.

I was working around a basketball court at a city park where the grass along side the courts was where I found them.

I have yet to find any gold rings, but I am keeping my fingers crossed.

I dug 3 coins in one hole today using the 15x12", all low value worthless coins but I knew there was at least two of the same coin in the hole, the pinpoint was giving me 2 clear targets right next to each other and I was able to recognize the two targets on the Target ID's too.  There was 3 in total so the 3rd must have been very close to one of the other ones so they blended together.  With my other detectors there is no way I'd be able to do this.

Great finds keep it up and any that you don't want send them my way.:)

If you happen to see someone following you out there in Oregon it might be me. I am just a Tech, and am studying for the general right now.

My brother used to live out there close to you and I know it is beautiful country. Have you tried your 800 on gold out there as I have panned in a few creeks and had found some. I want to get good enough to be able to use this 800 for that in some of those creeks to better my chances.

Ive read it works good on gold but with my work schedule I never find the time to get out to the mountains and try it. Hope to soon though.

      Met up with Rick the other day at the site of an old fairground to see if there's anything left there (it's been pounded for years) .  Right off the bat  the Nox hit a solid 13, I crossed the target and checked it PP mode and they agreed on the location.  Flipped the plug and nothing, dug another few inches and my pin pointer showed nothing in the bottom of the hole .  Checked the sides and there it was a 1905 V nickel on edge at about 4".
      It's a good thing the NOX is hot on nickels and Indian Heads as I just can't seem to get the coil over silver.

      Finally got a break in the weather and hit an old field with my tejon that I actually got the 10x12 widescan for. This place has been hit really really hard by a lot of people but I did manage to sniff out what looks like a King George. Not sure on the date, have to be careful with it. Might just leave as is. Also in the mix is an old 50 cal musket ball couple copper lincoln and a ship pin.

      Hey everyone
      I dug this 1923s SLQ yesterday. It has a nik on the edge, came out of the ground this way....bummer.
      This is the second '23s I've dug in 2 years. This coin is one of the lowest of all mintages for this quarter. 
      This first one I dug, I sold it to a friend for $200 to complete his SLQ collection. 
      Thanks for stopping in.

      Recently my detecting friend went back to Canada to visit his parents. He is an avid detectorist, he took his detector with him to try and get some Canadian silver. He spent some time in the local parks and managed a silver dime.................... a U.S. Rosie.  We laughed and laughed about that.
       This week I went to a local reservoir that was built in the late 20's. The power company that controls the lake level always lowers the water this time of the year for flood control and this year it is lower than normal for this time of year. In the past, I have found several silver coins on the shore line and I thought this trip might yield another one. I decided to hunt the area inside the marina that is exposed. you might have guessed it, I got what my friend went looking for.

      4 coins on the right all stacked about 7" down.
      2 cent 1867, 2 cent 1864, Indian head 1866 and Flying Eagle 1857. Other IH was on a nearby trail 1906
      2 cent pieces look like large moto.
      Looks like that lucky charm I glued on my tejon is still working :)
