...The NOX 800... came away with this nice Barber. It wasn't deep, just next to a piece of trash too close for the CTX to separate.

Nice dime, Norm, but it's mssing your state's mintmark!  (Just looked in the Redbook -- 1901-S is one of the lowest mintage and most valuable issues.)  Were you using the 11 inch coil on the Eqx?  Always interesting to hear/see evidence of separation.  I wonder how good the Garrett Apex is going to be with separation.  That's the one thing that could convince me to buy one.

Great find Norm, I find the 800 to be great at finding items next to trash that others have missed.

Good luck on your next hunt and stay safe out there.

Another great save Norm...I still have my CTX I'll use it in bottle cap infested areas at parks...it is slow compared to the nox and I'm waiting minelab to come up with a faster version..the CTX was my right hand detector for a long time. Lisa and I are trying to figure out when we can make it up north...

Great find Norm... I sold my 3030 also to get a NOX 800. I have found twice as much with the 800 than I did with my 3030...

      I have been digging a 1930,s out house and before i left for the day i scanned my sniper coil thru the dirt i had trown out , finding sevral shot shells and then what i thought was a token , and this is just on top of the pile well i got it home and cleaned off the dirt , It is an 1899 V nickle , and i suppose when the out house user pulled down his pants this coin fell out , Now I am asking myself , How many other coins have fallen out ? so my plan is to take a board and put a few scoops on the board , spread it out , have a magnet handy and scan the whole pile going back in  I bet it has more coins

      Copy/paste from my Facebook group post.
      Took my GPX 5000 for a walk today! 5 Roman coins, 1 coin dated 1874, 1 Hammered coin from the 16th Century, 1 half of a buckle (D shape) 15 - 16th Century if I'm correct, 1 big D Buckle from the 14th Century if im correct, 1 round copper objet that appears to be related to a lock (14 - 16th Century if I'm correct) and a little 🐕! Looks like silver but I'm not sure. Another hot day (34°C). These were all very deep targets! The round thingy was at +-50cm! (Really hard soil) The landowner's son saw that i was pulling these from crazy depths, so i told him to bring a backhoe someday... He likes the idea!😎 Can't wait to see what we going to find there!😁 Once again proving the GPX 5000 is a must have for coins and relics! (Something that Gordon Heritage has been doing for ages)😎 Now a little tip for all the coin ans relic hunters around the globe: Instead of buying lot's of machines, just save some cash to get one of these beasts! Just in case you don't know yet, this machine will see trough them Iron Slags or any other mineralization like if "they" weren't there! Roman areas and Medieval areas for example. I'm out!😊 Be lucky!😄 Cheers😁

      I decided to avoid heat stroke today by hunting at 6am. Went to an old farm pond close to a 1840's house. The old pond was a swimming hole for the owners back in the day. I was finding the usual farm debris when I got a really great hit. To my suprise out popped a 1945 Merc, but that wasn't all, four wheaties were keeping it company. I haven't found a merc in quite awhile and was wondering if I would ever find another. Two seconds after I filled that hole, I hit on a buffalo nickle. A little later I collected two more wheaties and three plain lincolns, a shotgun case, a giant 3 1/2'' brass ring and an unknown brass valve thingamajig. Any clues let me know, It has the word MAJOCA on the side. Overall I'm rating this as a damn good morning!!!

      Hey wassup guys!😃
      These are all my golds, found last year with my trusty Equinox 800! ( except the scorpion medallion, was found with 9HF)
      Staring from the top:
      2 Escudos from Philippe II - 1556-1598
      400 Reis from Ioannes V - 1722
      Barbarian Tremiss 3 - 6th Century if I'm correct
      1/4 Dinar aka Fraction - 12- 13th Century  if I'm correct
      Roman Earing
      Hollow Earing 18-19th if I'm correct
      Scorpion medallion. 
      I turned one of those coins into a ring.
      I never tried hunting for native gold and never tried learning how to track it, but I got sort of specialized on tracking Ancient/Medieval areas. 
      Best of luck to you all!
      Cheers

      Some finds from area that i tracked some months ago!
      We were having a very boring day...  after several hours walking near a river bank hoping for a Medieval dock, I started to see few fragments of pottery and Equinox 800 started to grunt alot...  1 musket ball... 2... 3...  We had just found a new hot spot! Lots of goodies from the 18th Century. When we started to get short on signals, I loaded my sea level simulator for a quick inspect... ( the more you go back in history, the more higher was the sea level), i saw an interesting elevation and went there for a inspection. Managed to extract 9 Medieval coppers on a small patch at the top! 
      Hope y'all don't mind that I post old hunts... 
       
      Be lucky!
      Cheers
