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!

Thank you!  Hopefully it's not a fake. lol  I'm going to do an acid test; I care more if it's really 18K than anything.

Great find and congrats on the rings.

Hope I will be able to do that some day.

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 don't have words to describe what the last couple months have been.
      I just know that finally I hitted this morning one ring over a wine red clay, after two days In a new spot, freediving with heck of rough water yesterday and quitted for real unacceptable danger.
      I fighted against the monkey since last August end and finally won this morning...
      I don't care the weight and the numbers, I just want to enjoy the shine again as a therapy.
      I hug You all.

      It's been a long dry spell since doing well this spring on the gold. Today I was out with the Nox 15" coil at a local park. This rang up a solid 11-12 in Park 1. Can't find one like it with a movable head.

      Hi everyone 😎 
      Hope y’all are doing well,
       This wasn't the best year personally and as such, I only got to hunt a couple weeks( one hour in early morning and sometime one hour in night) 
      Here’s pics and thank you for reading and looking at my post🙂

        Well, many scientists are confused about the secret and source of geomagnetism. there're many planets much larger than the earth, but they have no magnetic field at all. So, what's the secret behind geomagnetism? about 300 years ago, the queen of England's physician; William Gilbert, said something out of mere geussing, he said "The Earth moves as if it had a magnet within!"
      That was mere guessing, without any scientific proof. Hundreds of years before that, the chinese had invented the compass, it's a chinese invention. Then, the compass was use in Europe, where it had a great role in developing navigation. Yet, people remained confused about why the compass always points to the North. It was suggested the polar star might be pulling it in that direction, which is not logical, because if it were true, the compass needle'd be directed upwards, but actually, it's the apposite; it points downwards. Secondly, a compass doesn't point to the polar star att all. Compass dont point to the polar star and dont point to to the actual geographical North, either, rather, the point to something ele; the magnetic North pole. The difference between both is about 4 degrees.
      The polar star has nothing to do with compasses. 
      So, what's the atory? It has took several years for technology to be progressed enough to allow the establishment of modern geomagnetism observatories where accurate studies are carried out. 
      Later on, Scientists started talking about the center of the earth, where there's a central core of liquid iron, circulating deep down, which is associated with Earth's cycle of movement. That is the liquid iron circulates as Earth evolves. That circulating liquid iron contains convection currents.
      Those currents within that melted, liquid iron, whose temperature is very high, act like a coil which once electricity gors through it can magnetize iron rods in this case, the ferrous earth center gets magnetized, resulting in the Earth acting like a magnet with a magnetic fild, exactly like the magnetism experiments all learn and do at school.

      Hurricane Marie generated some good swells and moved sand at several southern California beaches. I got gold at 2 of the 4 beaches I hunted but not as many targets as I would have expected from the size of some of the cuts. I see that a couple of other forum members also did well from Marie which was an unexpected but welcome surprise.
      After finding a few dollars in clad and a small, 1.8 gram 14K gold ring at the first beach I hunted, I tried a couple other beaches that didn't yield much before driving to beach #4. This beach had a nice deep cut but, again, not nearly as many targets as a cut that size could have produced. Perhaps someone had beaten me to the punch earlier but I didn't see any signs of digging.
      Late in the hunt I scooped out a target and was shocked to see half of a bracelet in the mound of wet sand. It had the famous Cartier circles on the perimeter of the bracelet but I have found so many fakes with those same circles before. The bracelet also had a funny color to it so I tried not to get too excited about it even though it felt pretty weighty and was stamped "AU 750".

      When I got home I realized that the bracelet was rose gold and it  acid tested at 18K. On the internet I found out that Cartier jewelry is one of the most copied in the world but the bracelet seemed to pass all the checkpoints that determine its authenticity including its weight which was half of the typical 30 to 37 grams for a complete bracelet.

      At first I thought that it would be nice to find the other half and have the bracelet repaired. I still would love to find the other piece but it probably won't need to be fixed. The 2 halves are actually screwed together with permanently mounted screws. That's probably why the person that lost it didn't remove it since it is a bit of a hassle to do so. Of course, the downside is that you better make sure that those screws are fastened properly and checked periodically. 
      Sorry for the lengthy post but pretty excited about this one. My hunting friend doesn't think it's likely that I'll find the other half but the way this year is going I wouldn't be totally shocked (well, maybe a little). GL&HH!

      Last night I went to a beach that yielded a lot of targets.  On my 6 hour hunt from 8 PM to 2 AM I got 51 quarters, 40 dimes and nickels, 54 pennies (one wheat), 2 silver rings and one 10k gold ring.  There should have been more rings!  The trash was another 50 pieces or so.  When you figure it is 4-5 scoops per target (1000 total) then it adds up to a stiff back in the morning.
      I found the gold ring 2/3rds of the way through the session about the time the fog started rolling in which made for an enjoyable sight as it covered up the normal lights but there was still a mostly full moon above.  I was using the 15 inch coil and when I started I was down a couple of notches from full power.  I thought there would not be much on the beach but I was wrong and kept pushing along finding some high cuts.  Near the end of the session the detector was nearly out of power and I could hear a lessening in my headphones.
      Something I've wanted to say about the 3.0 update is that it really makes the quarters crackle.  I don't think I remember them like that before and I wish they would be a little more 'solid' but perhaps it is because of the sandwich metals.

      Got out while the water is still warm enough in the ocean for a wet suit, out at chest to chin deep was a slight slope/hole which held old targets. all targets were weak signals except for the new clad on top.
      Best of it was a 9K signet ring from Chester England.      With all the stamps on the inside small portion of the ring there are 2 more on the large portion of the ring witch is solid not hollow.          The small dark coin is a Merc. the other ring is Brass.
