All I can say is WOW, if  I would have found that my first 2 weeks I would be as happy as a mouse in a cheese factory!

Well done. You be surprised but often tokens are worth more than many coins even though they say no cash value. Some reason they are collectable. I got some oldies from pitching machines and carnivals. Not so much on the Chucky Cheese ones though.

I recognized the panama penny, found one up here in the NE in a ball field. Cool looking coin.

I didn't know about the tokens, and the Panama coin is a cool find for me. My mother was born in Panama while her father was building the canal. How funny you found a Panama coin too, thanks for the info kac.

Look up the token on ebay and you will see. Funny the stuff people collect.

Are you sure you weren’t “WAGGING A WAND”? If you were indeed “waging a wond”, I don’t know what that is but you sure found a lot of stuff doing it!:smile:

I agree, there is a load of help out there for those who can use it, and the machine is a nice one. I’ve said before that using Minelab machines is almost akin to “cheating”, if such a thing was possible in the hobby of metal detecting! It is adjustable for many different scenarios, which makes its mass appeal, well....massively appealing.

Nice start Hermit!

Thanks for the spelling lesson, all i know is i was talking to a friend on the phone the other day and he says, so you're off to wag your wand huh? and i thought the phrase was pretty funny even though i can't spell. So here's some of my recent cheating, and you are right monster, it does feel appealing. 😃 My first and second silver with the wand, dime was my first at 12 plus inches and half dollar at 2 inches. Both downtown finds. Also Indian head found in my front yard, half dollar backyard.  ht

      A great metal detector but I am looking for new one for a beginner, I want to start to search for coins in my area

      Time to share some finds i have been making with my Nox 800. From the Sierras to the streets of Reno i have been swinging as much as possible over the last couple weeks. I'm running in Park 1, sens. 19-23, manuel ground balance, 5 tone, and 5 recovery, but i also play with the settings some to learn the machine. Here are some coins and relics i just found over recent weeks. I'm new to coin hunting, only been hunting since the end of January, but i am falling for this hobby too much fun!😃

      Got an old soccer field that is next to a couple schools built in 1959, bad part is it had new loam put in back in the 70's. I was hoping for some very old coins but thinking that may not be the case. Anyways hit 1/4 of it so far and finding quite a bit of clad, 925 silver ring made in Italy, 64 silver dime and a 41 wheatie. Someone else was hitting the other end where there is tons of trash. Looked like they gave up. Been using the Multi Kruzer to get used to it and starting to learn the audio much better in 3 tone mode. Make a really nice coin shooter machine.

      Hello everyone; I read the subject and I'm confused 🙂 https://www.detectorprospector.com/magazine/steves-guides/steve-guide-gold-nugget-detectors/
      Since my financial situation worsened, I sold my gpx 5000 brand device and instead bought the xp deus x35 28 rc, vs5 device. The land I work on is high mineral, arhaic places. Findings I am looking for 0.50g - 2.5g electrum coin. Is this detector enough for me? What settings would you recommend to me?
      Thanks to everyone who contributed to the forum.

      Went out with 3 hunting buddies slopping in the muddy blackish sand for a few coins and a small 1.3gr 9ct gold ring. Still waiting for beaches to do more of a move. Photo of my medium dug hole which only produced an old 20 cent, but happy with depth the Tarsacci got. The others only got 3 coins between them so hard hunting with so few targets around at the moment. Happy with 1944 shilling......1946 3d is toast.
