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.

And so you should be tempted! Lol. I have the Tarsacci and an older XP Deus......nice combo which covers the bed of nails/trash before getting down deep and dirty. In fact, you could if you really wanted to.....combo an ace 250, AT Pro or any other VLF with it.

As Ive said previously, I grab theTarsacci which s used over 90% of the time. It is hands down the best and deepest on wet sand Ive used. That said, I also use a set of Sennheiser headphones, but the ones that come with it are above standard, although not waterproof.  Relic hunting......great iron audio. If there is a something there, you will find it.......on the beach (wet or dry) tiny bits of copper to 24 carat gold to dirt and all manner of relics and also mud.....wow, glorious mud /black sand combo has given me old pennies and silver plus jewellery.

I know it seems expensive,  so Ill put it this way. Would I sell mine?...NO.!!! Would I buy another?....YES!!!!  .....And this does not mean I down any other detectors and their performances, but believe in getting one that is suited to my style and type of hunting, bearing in mind my hunting conditions.  My old detectors of past have all been very good to me 😊 and still are at times.

That is a REALLY small gold ring in that nasty mineralized black sand Teresa! How deep was it?

CONGRATS on the GOLD!

Thanks. The depth wasn't great......guesstimate 8 to 10 inches. The old 20 cent was a lot deeper. To me I was pleased with the fact that such a small rather dainty gold ring was found in such conditions and I beat the incoming tide too😎

I’d say that was excellent depth considering the size of the ring and in black sand!👍

      Wow! Look at what just came out of my aunts backyard! It looks like a 1976/bicentennial coin collection. It clean up really nice after a lot of work. It was not very deep. I am really glad I didn’t damage the acrylic(I think it is acrylic).  I wonder how it got into the ground. Did someone bury it on purpose? Who knows. It is a great display. I can’t believe how nice it is. What do you think?

      So I've been getting a lot of clad coins with both the Equinox and the Vanquish 440 in the local parks, but even in the older ones, silver coins have escaped me for a couple of months now.  In between thunderstorms this afternoon, I hit the neighbor's parking strip, and in less than ten minutes, I pulled two silvers and a wheatie!  My first silver quarter, AND my first Canadian silver. The quarter is pretty trashed, but I'm glad just the same!
      Felt good to break the slump!

      Here are most of my good finds of the past year. I have a lot of pennies, a few dimes, 2 quarters, and 1 nickel. I saved a few old pull tabs because they were out of use before I was around. I have a button, a toy car wheel, A few bottle caps, a spoon head, a few keys, a EP co cap, a knife, and a broken toy gun. I have a few finds not shown here. Like an arrow to a bow, a game horseshoe, another toy gun, and a few older coins that went into my coin collection. The gun in the bag in from the 1950s I believe, and a picture of a mint condition one is below. The mason jar liner was un broken when I found it but I hit is with the shovel( I saved it anyway). The zinc cap was to far gone to save. Hope they are interesting to look at.
