Congrats Seeker! 3 golds is impressive as are the silver coins, especially, from the dry sand.

Yes, well done on those finds.  I can't remember the last time I found silver on my Santa Monica Bay beaches.  Where are your beaches?

That is a fantastic hunt, I will be lucky to be able to do that with my grandfathers 800. I have only found 3 coins with it so far, but I am cleaning out the trash from his back yard with it.

I think it is going to take a miracle to learn that thing, but I am working on it.

Thanks Compass, sometimes I just get lucky. I went out there just hoping to find just one silver coin and this happened. The only downside is that I have to cover more ground and it’s a challenge walking in the dry, for me at least.

I hunt Santa Monica and a few others and have found silver at all of them. I usually find the coins far from where all the dry sanders hunt.

Thanks Valens and sorry about your loss. When it comes to the Equinox the best thing to do is stick to the presets, trust me they work very well.  When I’m hunting the wet sand I mostly use presets with some tweaks to pitch and I also reverse the tones. Keep reading these great forums and ask questions. You will become proficient in no time. HH

Great day 0ut! That Nox is a work horse for sure, that's all I see at the beach here. 

Thanks OBN. Anywhere you go all you will see is people using the equinox.  Where I hunt there’s anywhere from 10-15 using the Nox. It’s simple to use, swing and finds the goods. If you swing it correctly, at the right places and some luck you will find what your looking for. There’s a lot of competition so sometimes you have to put extra effort. HH

I really hope that you are right about that as I probably have dug over 250 holes in my grandmothers back yard by now and have only found 4 coins. I have been digging every time I get a solid tone and I can now tell everyone that her back yard looks like a war scene from the movies. I have read a lot of articles on here, but still don't know what I am doing. However if digging everything helps find the good stuff, I should be getting my share soon. I only have about another 1/4 block to go to the back fence and then I will move over about 10 feet more and come back up to the house again. They own half the block where they live as it was a church at one time.

      Thought id throw up a couple more finds from the month.   Things have kept me out of the water the past 3 months...... then we had the storm.   Seems everyone went home now as well so we are just getting locals and a handful of tourists now.   Still busy with hunters with our warm water.....so its getting picked clean.   Got more young guys getting into it with the local FB page now as well who are doing pretty well.

      Found a beautiful little diamond ring, probably CZ. It says Avon sterling but there is a little chip that looks like it’s plated. Does anyone know if Avon sterling jewelry is .925 silver?

      Some beach erosion and high waves from Sally brought these into detector range. One silver and 3 gold. Two are 14K, and the other is 10K.  About 8 hours total over 2 days. Three rings on the first day and one on the second day. I went back on the third day and all was sanded in again. I don't know what the gemstone is in the ring. Not a diamond. Bob K

      I got out for nice long hunt with the AQ. I found quite a few targets to keep me busy. Five of the rings are junk and the other two silver. One of the silvers has real diamond chips. The gold ring came towards the end of the hunt and weighs 4.7g. I have found 5 gold rings with the AQ and a small pendant, so not too bad.  Thanks for looking and happy hunting.

      With lifeguards gone Kids gone cooler weather and the lowest water level in years,     fresh water
      I was out chin deep in what it seems to be undetected area. all targets were very deep and have been there for a long time.
      The Irish ring is stamped 375, the locket 585, and the blue ring 14k and I have not cleaned the 14k at all it is tarnished or stained.
      All found with TDI BH but I did mark the area that the locket came from to return with my Nox to try and find the chain.

      I looked at my Equinox 800 screen when I heard it.  This Sound had potential.  It was not like the familiar sounds of pennies, quarters and even the nickels.  The screen read 9 and that had Potential too.  I swung over it in a couple of directions and it still had a solid 9.  Then you dig.  Still a 9 and a good sound as you go down 3-4-5 inches to the patch layer.  Then it is in the scoop and you look down in the dim light and you don't see a coin.  You can see a shape and the wire mesh too!  That is real POtential.  I turn on my light and voila it's a ring and its yellow!  POTENTIAL!

      When I got home I looked it over.  It is not the best ring that I've ever found but it was the BEST and only ring I found last night.  It is 10k/RL/CZ/BOUVIA.  Potential realized.
      Now, this is the rest of the story as Paul Harvey used to say.
      Last night was a hunt pattern that I have repeated before.  It is a normal beach detecting pattern for me.  I put my son to sleep about 8 PM and when he is sleeping a couple of hours I get up and detect the beaches for 4 hours or so.  The beginning was the same with parking and beach entry.  After walking about half a mile I could see a detectorist light up ahead working the beach.  I could not tell which direction they were working but I knew this spot.  It could be good but I was going to let them have it.  I walked off the wet sand into the dry and avoided the spot for quite a distance and then I dropped back down to the beach.
      Someone had been to this portion of beach before me but they were gone or it had been the detectorist I avoided.  I could not see them any more and no one was in front of me so I relaxed and looked for the clues.  Pretty soon I found a coin.  I circled and found another.  I saw some recent (within 2 hours) unfilled dig holes and I included those in my pattern and then in my grid.  The picture emerged and I could see the beginning and finally the end of the patch.  It was a small patch this time but I'll take it.
      No one came across me while I was working this patch.  There were no seagulls.  I hope this happens for you on your patches.
