I searched the forums and was not able to find an answer to this question:
So when I find a used Minelab SDC 2300 how do I go about verifying that it is authentic when I go to inspect it with the seller?
I looked on the minelab website and it appears there are several methods that dont require you to take it to a dealer but it is not clear to me how it is done.
Is there a hologram viewer supplied with a new unit and then you enter the sn# plus the hidden code into minelab online verification app?
Is the Green Aftermarket Coil Tab Protector used "to replace" the teardrop washers?
In other words, if the coil of my machine is equipped with the "Green Aftermarket Coil Tab Protector," then there is No Need To Be Concerned About the fact that the teardrop washers can not be used in the set up; is that correct?
Is the following a true statement:
"The teardrop washers and the fact that they do not fit in place any where in conjunction with an installed "Green Aftermarket Coil Tab Protector" is of no consequence."
I sure hope so because I can see absolutely no possible way that the teardrop washers can be used in conjunction with the
"Green Aftermarket Coil Tab Protector"

I recently was looking at a new place when I was hiking and found some interesting samples. I bought a cheap digital microscope to get a closer look and think I found something good but want some opinions before I get them assayed. Anyone want to help?
I'm a total newbie. I bought an inexpensive detector called Quick Shooter MD3030. It came from China to Thailand and it also doubles as 'Mental Detector' judging from the picture below.
I think I understand more or less by now what it does - there is a sensitivity and selectivity (including notching out in 6 phase shift ranges) target identification value display plus 3 tones audio for different ID ranges. It operates on single frequency of some 6 kHz and seems to have round coils.
There is also 'depth indicator' on the display, which I imagine would be the return signal/target strength (or the inverse of it)? I'm not sure if I understand how VLF detectors know the depth of the target.
Would anybody be vaguely or intimately familiar with this detector and are there is any technical info or reviews, beyond what I know that I can consult to learn more about it? I don't even know who the manufacturer is...
A related question: since this detector doesn't have a background threshold control, would decreasing sensitivity play a similar function?
I know that this particular model may not be up to the Board Members' standards but please help the newbie.

Last week were purchased over 250 grams of these large gold nuggets. While we purchase a lot of gold jewelry and bullion in Boise and Nampa Idaho, this amount of gold nuggets marks a first for us.
I am curious the realistic ask value of these?
Most of these were under 1 gram, but there were about 100 from 1gram-4grams. The largest just over 15grams.
