I have been searching a recently harvested beanfield that was a picnic grove 100 plus years ago. This has been a nickel haven as these were V-nickels number 28 and 29 that I have found at this field in the last couple of years. I read in an old newspaper that carousel rides were a nickel at this grove. The right nickel is a 1885 and the left is a 188?. I had to let them soak in a rust remover to remove the corrosion that comes from farm chemicals. The 1885 will grade AG3 at best. I switch around between the CTX and Deus and the EQ but the 800 is definitely the best on nickels. Still a great find.
I'm trying not to brag guys honestly, but the Nox and myself did it again.
Unfortunately I took my Spinks coin bible back to the library last week, so I cant I.D the little butey, Soooo......can any kind person here tell me what it is please..... pretty please....with a cherry on top 😉 ?
Finally found my first silver with the NOX 800 it was a 1942 S quarter about 6 or 7 inches. What I think is weird is it rang up as a 27 or 28 which is lower than a clad quarter rings. A clad usually is a solid 29 or 30. Why would that be? Why wouldn't silver ring higher than clad?
This is exactly what has perplexed me using the NOX over my Deus for example. I don't understand discrimination on this thing.
I was using park 1 since everywhere in town here is so full of trash. But I didnt get any other signals in this spot after I dug it up and refilled the hole
Hi you lovely lot,
A bust toe kept me down for a week or so...... But yesterday I bounced back, got the eye of the tiger and found my SECOND hammered coin!!!
On this latest one, its a tad broken off at the side, but still a lovely little coin. I'm very happy with it.
Hope your all well, and finding your own nice stuff, all the best.
I'm back baby 😉
A small bit of damage n wear, but hay ho.
The back is almost identical to the first one i found.
And here they are, the 1st one and yesterdays. May of been the same person who lost them both, clumsy bugger so he was 😉
MEGA close-up look at yesterdays coin. If damage hadn't occurred, it would be a stunning example of a 1400 hammered coin. If you look at her face, it looks like she has dumbo ears LOL.
And Below, both coins shown. Yesterdays find is slightly defaced, but considering they have both been hiding in a ploughed field for over 600 years, they aint half bad really. .........
