He Is Risen And His Cross Was Found

Recommended Posts


Nice cross, since it is 10k I would believe that they put some chip diamonds in it. They are not worth much about the same as industrial use diamonds.

Nice "out of the park" hit. 👀

I did similar yesterday scoring a 1914 Buff a few feet over the outfield fence at an old softball field.

Nice find. Good you could get out. It's snowing right now in northern Michigan.

the football field and baseball fields I normally frequent were all chained off. So, I had to get creative. I detected around the outside of one of the diamonds and ran the 15" Equinox coil over this recent drop. I would not have seen it just walking past it, so I still count it as a find even though no dirt was dug.

You guys are killing me!  Since the stay-at-home situation began I've been walking (allowed for exercise) and realized that a baseball field that is normally locked has its bullpen (for those not familiar with baseball, it's the area where substitute pitchers=throwers warm up) outside the locked fence.  It's also pretty remote compared to the walking paths, so even now with lots of extra walkers & runners it's unlikely that I'll interfere with anyone's exercise or even be noticed.  Ditto outside the outfield fence.  I've been avoiding going in solidarity, but I don't know how much longer I can resist.

AMW, if you go dectecting, anything you find counts in my book.  I (and I'm sure everyone) has found 'sunbakers' where just my eyes were involved, regardless digging/not.  Sounds like your Eqx + 15" inch coil called your attention to it.  Nice chain and cross!

P.S.  I assume you gave your Carrot a bath.  The only time mine looks like that is after a good cleaning, and it doesn't stay that way for long.

Well, here in FL we are well into the "hot" season. Temp was 90 yesterday and today's dew point is 72. I feel for those in colder climates and can remember those days well in Utah when I knew there was a quarter under the ground, but the ground was frozen. I don't miss the cracking hands and the numb fingers and toes.

Thanks 🙂 Here in FL the ground is so sandy that there is not much to stick to the carrot. It has also been very dry recently, so even the sand doesn't stick to it.

I like it.    

Is the cross hollow or solid?     If its hollow that would make a good test piece as gold crosses are normally hard to find due to their angularity and low conductivity.

The cross is kind of like a tray that is holding some sort of metal that the gems are inset into. It's almost like solder was poured around the gems and it is holding them in. I have not seen something like it before.

Nice cross and chain. I have hound a few small gold crosses with my Nox. Nothing too deep, only a few inches.

I'm in Florida too!

      Went back again to lake last week w the Tarsacci, managed to find another small child’s gold ring again. This one was down at least 6” and sounded very good. I’m getting a chest mount for my iPhone, so I promise my next video will be better!

      Seen a opening to get out today but just not the right spot for the "AQ' yet. Come winter I see the "AQ" getting a real good work out here. Today I took the excalibur for I was not sure what conditions I would be walking into. Working in close first nothing..... but Iron and trash..dug a few pieces and decided to go deep, still not a lot of targets. Slowly working my way deeper and parallel to the beach about 600 foot out...shoulder deep I got a couple nickels kind of shallow (2 scoops) then slowed to the snail's pace...Got another signal, broken but being I just got two nickels I'm going to dig all...3 scoops, maybe 12 inch's deep ..surprise...Gold.

      Both silver. Was using the Equinox 800 with 6" coil. Using Park 2, 2 tone, recovery 4, iron bias 0, and sensitivity 24. I like Gold mode too. 
      Not worth much, 2 earrings worth $0.50. Like finding 2 quarters lol. The stone is cz.  They are real jewelry though.

      I got out today for a low tide hunt and some needed exercise.  Conditions weren’t good but I was eager to give it a whirl. After an hour I got a 7-8 on the MDT8000 and this 10k ring popped out.  I haven’t tested the diamond chips yet. The rest of the hunt was uneventful but I had already achieved my goal so I was good to go. Thanks for reading and happy hunting.

      Out yesterday for the first time in a while. Went to a spot that has been Hammered so much by every water machine made... it really is hard to find anything good. I took a friend to this spot last year, his words.."I hate this place" I will never come back here again...And the reason is......... it's lacking targets of any kind other then shallow trash or fishing sinkers freshly lost......and being up a cove there is little to no sand movement. So if there is anything good it is going to be deep.
       
      Someone asked a few weeks ago about buoyancy I want to make a correction on something. Yesterdays hunt I took and let the AQ float on the surface in calm water...and this is without the cuff on my arm..the rear does sink fairly fast...needed to correct that information... Also the Nox really drives the AQ crazy..I could hear it coming like a helicopter off in the distant's..

      OK, Been in Oregon bout three years now.  First two years were spent on getting my house in order and new additional garage built.  Then came the Nox, waited on a list for months.  Kept myself busy with my old X-Terra 705 until the Nox arrived but did not go out as much as I should have.  Waiting for a new toy to arrive is not the thing to do, you lose your edge for hunting.  Fast forward now to the waiting list for the AQ limited.  This one is also driving me nuts.  I watch the email daily hoping it's coming soon and follow this website for AQ tidbits.  It's like the Nox all over again.  I haven't gone hunting with my trusted Tesoro Sandshark P.I.for two years now and that's just not acceptable.  Well today I jotted down a couple of pocket beaches I spotted driving up the coast a few months ago and decided to hit them at low tide.
      The first one I hunted with the Sandshark just at the waters edge where the water riverlets started to separate the mud.  This is where most of the coins settled out.  At high tide it's about three feet deep here.  No gold but good to hear those crisp coin tones and the sinker was about another 12" deep.  Decided to do the last beach with the Nox.  Went down the steps, out about fifteen feet to a used fire pit/burnt area.  First signal was a solid 12.  The ring couldn't have been there very long because it wasn't more than three inches deep in soft sand.  Nice 2.9 gram, not marked but acid tested 10K gold.  Fake diamonds with pearlescent type stones.  The gold is there, I just have to keep telling myself the will is there and get off my butt and quit watching my email.  What will happen will happen for a reason.  Persistence has always put gold and silver in the bag.  This was a good day!  GaryC/Oregon Coast
