I've been using my Nox 800 with a 15" coil for a few months now, ears broke on original coil, and I find it too nose heavy.  Yesterday I received the 11" Nox coil and parts I bought from Dan(NM) last Thursday.  The parts are like NEW, just like he said.  Dan is an honest man and great seller!!!

So this morning I went out for some beach hunting.  Been on a bit of a dry spell lately.  

First thing I noticed, it felt so much easier swinging the Nox.  No luck in the wet so I hit the dry.  $5.50 in clad and these 2 little beauties.

Thanks again Dan, not only for the great parts but for the great Karma that came with them!  Hoping this thread will bring you good Karma in return!

Congrats on the finds! Hopefully the Cartier is real. It should feel pretty heavy in your hand.

Here are my 3 Cartiers from the past year.  The white gold ones are counterfeit.  The serial number on both is 52833A.  The gold one has a different serial number and tested 18K.  Both white gold ones failed the gold test with my electronic gold tester after the larger one passed the 18K acid test.  

Good luck on the test but if the serial number is 528833A it is fake. (test it anyway)

Congrats on getting back up and running.  I broke the ears off my 15 inch after a year on the beach but sent it back under warranty and got a new one.  I also bought one of those 3D ear strengthens off ebay and it seems to be what the doctor ordered. LOL

Thanks fellas!

 

I found one of those 528833A ones last year.  Acid test said gold but I have my suspicions. lol  

Which gold tester do you have?

Two days after I found the yellow gold Cartier I found the smaller white Cartier with the same serial number as the larger one from last year.  The one last year acid tested 18K.  So that was when I decided to buy the electronic tester.  It tested both white Cartiers as non gold.  The yellow one tested 18K.  

I then tested all of my gold finds with and without hallmarks.  One of my large hallmarked 14Ks only test 10K.  One non hallmarked ring that had tested 14K with the acid, tested 18K with the tester.   It has been spot on on almost all of the hallmarked pieces. (and yes, I tested every piece of gold that I have.) LOL  It sure takes the doubt away on some of those "suspect" pieces that we sometimes dig.

Happy to hear you have your coil situation squared away. Nice finds, I hope the Cartier is real.

      I got out 3 times and was able to snag some decent targets. 
      This hunt was done at the rocky beach I frequent during winter. There were lots of targets, more than I could dig in one hunt. I got about $8 in clad. The first row is all the good jewelry, one small 14k (.73g), and the rest Silver. The second row of rings are all junkers.


      This second hunt netted about $12 in clad and a small/light broken 14k pendant.


       
      The last hunt wasn’t all that great but I somehow managed to get a gold tooth that weighs 3.6g. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Hunting.

      Been running A M.  mostly here on the Gulf.   So much I don't even think about it.   Anyway today I met up with a good buddy on his second year with his Nox 600.   Following a good ways behind I hit a few low negative items. No matter How hard I squinted I couldn't make them gold /silver.       So I caught up to my pal, laid em on the sand. Hey check these with your Nox, see what ya think.      He says , Can't hear a thing !    What?  He's says he got nothing.    Ole buddy was starting to get a little sick.   Felt kinda bad.        Thought a minute.  I says , you in All Metal.     No in disc.      He switched it over.  All was good.    Just proves you never quit learning.        Around a buck eleven, out of a surf wash.

      I haven't been out much lately due to some uncomfortable tendonitis but I made it down to a beach this afternoon for low tide.  The beach was sanded in and I wasn't expecting to much from the Impulse but just needed to "get out" of the house mainly.   I had the beach pretty much all to myself with just a couple of surfers and a few walkers.  I was running AM and basically default settings and just enjoying the beach.  I dug several bottle caps so I knew that finding something good would be a crap shoot.   The Impulse was hitting the lobster trap pieces pretty hard and I was getting a double beep on some pieces but not enough. LOL  
      I got a good solid AM hit and switched to Tone mode and got the "doo whop" sound of a coin.  I am thinking quarter all the way.  Three scoops down and it finally came out of hole of the caving in wet sand.  It is the biggest ring I have ever detected.  A big boy for a big boy!!!  18.9 g and size 13 1/4.  I can wear it on my left thumb.  To bad it wasn't a gold class ring but I will take silver any day.  
      I am not sure what the stone is either.  But beggars can't be choosers. LOL
      Thanks for looking!

      From mid beach to the upper slope, not a lot targets but squeezed out a few keepers!  Good luck out there! ☠️
