Nice catch on the ring and the charm.

Looks like mostly modern coins and what is the broken chain.

Good hunting and good luck.

Thanks. The coins are modern with 4 out of the 5 cents being the copper version (3 Memorials, 1 Wheat). I may hit that beach again with the new coil and tightly grid a section. It's hard to differentiate between a bit of mineral or falsing and a deep, fringe target. Coins at 15-20" do not sound like real targets sometimes. You have to take a lot of chances and dig about 6-7" out and see if the target gets louder. Sometimes it's just ground noise.

Here is what separates you from the masses.  You are willing to try different things (coils) and yes there is a need for the EMI coils in certain situations.  That is a pretty little ring and great depth from an EMI coil.  If it was a bigger gold ring, just add a few more inches.  Thanks for sharing.

      Are JP et al trading in their Z7000s in favor of the 6000?  Is this the "Go To" machine for everyday prospectors?  From initial reports it would appear the 6000 excels at sub half gram nuggets in OZ soils, but isn't expected to compete with the 7000 on bigger/deeper gold.  Here in the US, will I have to sell a kidney for the luxury of having both detectors?  It may be some time before us CONUS prospectors even see the availability of such a machine, do I sell the 7000 before the market is flooded?  Does anybody know what the recovery time is for a kidney donor?

      Apr 19, 2021 The Gold Rush Guy - "Great to finally get the new Minelab GPX 6000 and take it out for a run. Very impressed with its sensitivity, especially the depth of even small pieces of gold. Apologies with the video quality. Will rectify in future hunts."

      The first video I've seen by somebody that knows stuff. 
      4/18/2021 Digging with PhaseTech - Well, it is finally out, and finding plenty of gold already! The Minelab GPX6000 was a fun project to be involved in. Here's the first of many videos where I will showcase finds, tips and techniques, comparisons and just having fun with it in the field.

      From luckystrikegold.com.au/product/detectorgpx6000/:
      “UPDATE 14/4/21 We are expecting the new GPX 6000 in next week in very limited quantities.”
      Not a peep out of U.S. dealers, but maybe Minelab is telling them nothing.
