Site Revisit With Change Of Detector -- Same Disappointing Result


Recommended Posts


   Those two mated pieces look to me to be a kids life size "cowboy" cap gun barrel!

   Sorry you didn't find the coins that "should" have been there, but is it possible that someone beat you there? And cleaned it out! Or they simply got buried deeper, being a path! Still interesting finds!!

   Anyway, I'm sure there are other locations, including the waterfall area, that has some hidden coins/jewelry!!👍👍

It's hard to know what went on there on that path. Maybe they scraped some dirt 50 years ago, maybe a washout took the coins and relics away, or as always feared, somebody got there first and cherry picked the coins. Either way you don't have to wonder what might have have been there if you didn't detect it, and saw them covering it up with the new boardwalk. If there were some coins hiding there you would have found them judging by what you were able to recover. You didn't miss any, they just aren't there for some reason.

Nice hunting G-B and glad you found some nice targets, but I wonder if you have tried to hunt any part of the creek. Those types of trails are good for old coins in the water just a few feet from the bank. It really depends on how fast the water is going to be able to hunt it.

Good luck and keep a swinging.

Hey GB, one of the pot metal pieces is the Monopoly cannon. Interesting finds! Glad you got some gold.monopoly-cannon.jpg.7f4fb421f72fee2511421da71a3a1971.jpg

And I got the hammer for the cap gun if you need it 😀20210918_114649.thumb.jpg.0b84bde2e0614be5b3b64a8f3dcdc169.jpg

      My first time out in a month, a lot has happened and now I am back to being a fulltime pirate. Water was was warm..70F with the 3mm wetsuit but the winds were up in the Chesapeake Bay this weekend............ Air temps were 54F so the wind chill was bad.
      Four hours hunt time, 7 Silver Washington's, 1 Mercury dime. One 7.49 gram 10k gold Class ring. Silver count is fairly good this year considering it's been a real down year.. (153)
      Next trip out will be with the drysuit.. getting to old for the cold.

      Back out again yesterday, 3 hours. 2 gold bands and 3 silver coins. One of the gold bands is fairly old, guessing from the Hallmark/Fineness mark ... * X * (10k) late 1800's. I went back where I had found the gold Sunday when using the Excalibur but this trip I took the Fisher "AQ" PI. The "AQ" is a killer on deep gold rings. Both rings about 14 inches down, one I said.. this is trash.. signal had a  Faint "Quick" ramp up, down, then quick back up.. semi broken signal.  Like a short bobby pin?.. In all metal. Machine was super silent and smooth the full hunt.. Delay was 10.. Volume just short of full (9) .. sensitivity cranked up (9) ...ATS 4.5 and all metal ..dig all.
      Ring one is 14k 4.28grams, Second older gold is 1.6 grams 10k
      Also remember I have a audio cut off for the volume on the handle, that's the reason the audio can not be heard when I run the coil over the target in the sifter. I can hear it for it so loud it bleeds thru the switch faintly. 
      I love this machine!!

      I've been so busy that I almost for to post this... a week  or two ago, I took the Nox with my 10x5" coil to an older park in my area which has been there since before WWII. I ran Park 2, 50 tones, FE2=6, Recovery at 6, and was able to run Sensitivity at 21-22. The park was surprisingly clean and most of the targets were fairly deep at 5-8" or so with some deeper. I was hoping to score a silver rosie or maybe a merc but all I was getting was more modern clad and a taunting from a 1965 Washington quarter.
      I moved toward the middle of the park and found a few copper memorial pennies when I hit a real nice sounding target. I thought it might be a wheatie or something but out popped this odd copper looking round thingie. I thought might be an older button as it was pretty heavy for its size. I was later told it is a hem weight. I'm not familiar with those and have no idea of its age.
      I decided to move towards the baseball field which has been there longer than the park has and then it happened. I got a nice high 28 tone at about 4" and the turf gave up a nice Silver ring with stones that I figured were CZs. I tested them when I got home and low and behold they all tested diamond. The ring is stamped 925 Mex and weighs 6.96 grams.
      So I didn't find any silver coins, but that ring will do just fine. 😎

      Some knows I broke a couple of toes a couple of weeks ago.  Yesterday is was attempting to put a TV stand with a very heavy thick glass top on it in a dumpster.   That glass came off…. and dropped straight down on those toes. Man that hurts like heck.   Well I was determined to do a little hunting anyway.   Long slow walk tot the water.  It was really moving pushing me a round.  Managed to check the transition points with some success.  If you get there at low tide you can clearly see what the beach has been doing and where the deep cuts are made.  Wend was out of the SW and pushing the waves.   Good many coins considering the guys hit it last night.  One SS, a silver earring marked Jordan and the small 14k gold 3.9 grams.  After today …. Man I’m taking a few days off again

      Hey guys, an older friend of mine has a nice condition CZ70a Pro that he would love to hunt with again after many years but there is one problem:  It is missing the upper shaft/stem/handle assembly.  Apparently the handle broke off years ago and the upper shaft was lost or tossed.  He has the control box and lower shaft.  Yes, I know he could pouch it but he really wants to mount the box on a shaft.  Unfortunately the mount used for this detector was only used on the CZ70, CZ70a and CZ70a Pro.  I spoke to Fisher and they no longer carry parts fo that model.  Does anyone have that the upper shaft/stem/handle assembly they would be willing to part with?
      I've attached pix for your reference of what he has left.  Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
      Lastly, I have spoken to Anderson Shafts about possibly making something but if I could find the actual part that would be very cool.
      Many thanks,
      Bill
