This morning i took my Terra and Nox to the beach at 7am hoping that either i would find a ton of coinage or a ring with the Nox on the lower beach .

As it turned out i didn't use the Nox as the Terra was enough . I was hoping to have a go in an enclosure with a large screen that was put in place for the World Cup but that was not available today , not sure when it will be but will check again . Over around 3 hours i found a 1 Euro coin and 2 other foreign coins , a junk ring and £16,38p and a fishing weight and a toy car . 

Tomorrow i will take only the Terra and have a go in the enclosure if i can , that might turn out to be my best score this year so far but it will also give me a chance to see if the cashless society is as bad as i think it is . A few years ago i found £157.99p and a Gold ring in 4 hours . Wont do that but it should be fun trying .

This is the score that i got in an enclosure in 2014 on 14 - 07 - 2014 , i think that was the World cup too but not sure.

The 4 rows of Copper/ Nickel coins are the old Pound coins of the time .

Went back today from 7am till 4.30pm . 

The cashless society is certainly taking hold but I didn't do to badly. 

Report to follow when I get home, stuck in traffic in the rush hour.

      I have been limited at the moment in going to the beach because i have to see Mum in Hospital nearly every day in London . She has now had her Lung operation and is hopefully on the mend . But yesterday i didn't go to see her and will later today . 
      I instead went to bed early last night and at 1.30am this morning got up and took the ET to the beach . I wanted to have a quick search on the tops before going onto the wet and looking for rings . I didn't expect much coinage , the weather has been raining for a couple of days and other detectorists would have cleaned up the coinage if any in most places .
      I got to the beach at around 2.15am and searched the dry tops for 2 hours getting little coinage mostly , though most of what i had today . When the sand started to show i went onto it and almost immediately found a Silver ring (middle left) on the blue tack and a few coins . A bit further along i had a 12  23  signal and i did think yellow , i just had that feeling and when i dug it out it turned out to be just that . Its a 2.7g 9k (top) , that is my 7th for the year so far , a short time later i found a junk ring ( bottom) . On that particular beach i found no more and left and searched a small beach but that was baron on the sand and as i had now reached the point where the tide was turning i went straight for one last place . 
      I searched and found mostly 1p and 2p coins and the dark £1 coin in black sand . Then i had another high tone which i thought 2p but that turned out to be the Silver ring with the turquoise stone in it . I found a junk chain with stones not long after and the junk earring and a Silver Pendent with the Amber in it . At the end of the search at around 6.15 am i had found a total of £15.16p and the said jems .
      I have to see Mum today and i might not be home before 10.30pm tonight so i might not make tomorrow morning ? But it is a long tide and i have the game on and smell yellow so might bare it and go on the red eye at 4am if i wake up. That will be an ET search too . My Nox is still in the box and not set up , being that i sold my first Nox . I will get that out and use that in a few weeks time when the Summer season is over . That is for the sand only when its stirred by the waves and wind.

      Sometimes you just have to find the right beach ... the right energy.  That is what I did this morning.
      I got out about 3 hours before low tide (4:30 AM) at a regular beach and found next to nothing.  There was nothing that had been moved by the tide or the waves in one of my favorite beaches.  This half of a mile beach was dead.  It was time to go over a jetty and detect a beach that could get waves and energy from a different direction.
      That got me started.  The waves overnight had been small and the tide was not really going to be very low but the beach had quite a slope to it.  I found a couple of quarters.  I gridded as I have done this beach before and the quarters kept coming.  These were 'old' quarters as my wife sometimes says.  That means they are tarnished and have been in the water for some time.  Now enough energy had focused on this beach to move them up.  What comes with old quarters?  RINGS!
      The first one came at the bottom of a grid.  It was the stainless steel black ring.  More quarters and more dimes and then the bracelet, and then the second ring and more quarters and a little trash and I'm skipping some pennies.  Then I get an 18 on the 800 and I did it and it is the 3rd ring.  Another cheap one but still a ring.  I'm closing in on 3 hours and I need to go move my car but I also want to complete my grid pattern.  
      Then for about the 3rd or 4th time this hunt I get multiple signals but the 800 is fast enough to distinguish the sounds.  I focus on a 'ring sound' and sure enough I get the 1.9g/14k ring.  It was among 2 other quarters, a couple of nickels and a dime.  These were all within a 5 ft circle digging down about 6-8 inches.
      It was a good day and a good lesson once again about the energy.  The places I hunt need energy to move valuable objects.  Some of the heavies will be at the bottom of the grid but the gold ring was near the top.  Quarters will get there also with the right waves and wind.  I don't need a negative tide to find some good stuff.
      Totals
      38 Quarters
      37 Dimes
      14 Nickels
      23 Pennies (I could have dug more but I do a little cherry picking to save my arm and time!)
       4 Rings
      The beach is not always this good and looking for gold in the desert has its challenges also.  You have to take what you can get.

      This morning i took my Nox to the beach for a look at the low tide , i didn't take the Terra too so was going to have to use the Nox on the difficult dry tops too if necessary . I got there at 5am and went straight for the normally best beach . It didn't look brilliant , the lower beach had built up a bit but was workable. There were others detecting the dry here and there so i went straight for the wet . 
      I got lucky and found a few coins almost immediately and not long after a small toe ring , it looks Silver and had a high tone but isn't marked . It compares well with tones on other Silver rings of the same size that i have . Further along i found another ring , it also has no hallmark but has a high tone , i scuffed the metal and it stayed Silver looking . I will get them checked one day but will consider them Silvers . The tide was too short to do much sand so i will have to do that tomorrow when the tide is out further . Time for a Gold . After that i went onto the tops with my Beach 1 mode and only listened to high tones for the Pound coins . Lower denomination coins are impossible to tell with so many junk targets about , thats normally best for the Terra to look for. 
      After a while i left that beach and worked East and it was hard work , i looked at an area i searched last week but found little . I was about to give up when a Man came up to me and asked if i could find a bunch of keys he lost , there were car keys , house , shop and other keys so i went for a look , he said he would pay for my time . I doubted i would find them .
      We got to the area he and his family were at and i searched that area but there was no sign of them . I asked if he was sure about the area and he then said maybe it was a bit further down . I searched for a while and then suddenly i got a target that seemed right and i scuffed the surface a bit and saw the keys . He was very happy as it was not long before he would have had to pay for parking and he has to display the ticket inside the car . He could have been given a ticket let alone the cost of all those keys to cut. 
      He picked out 3 x £20 notes and said have this but i said no i couldn't and said only £20 . .
      I think i am getting quite used to finding peoples lost rings and things when out , might have to start a business 🙂 , bet that will pay . Like Hell it will !
      When i left i counted up and my total was £38.25p and the 2 rings . 
      Tomorrow the weather will be a bit stormy after the heatwave we have had , so i will be there looking for the Gold if any and will be out from 5am till 2pm . I am going to use the Nox firth till the sand fills in the do the tops till i have searched them out . Thats 2 miles of beaches if i can .
      On Sunday there is a nice dig on with the Weekend Wanderers which i was thinking of going too but i am not likely to go , the weather is iffy and i dont like the heat on fields either . but the main reason is that i dont want to be far from home right now . 
      On Thursday my Mother went to the Hospital for an Echo scan of her Heart so the results can go to Guy's Hospital in London . She will soon be there to have her operation for Lung Cancer . But when she was going into the entrance she tripped up and fell on the floor face first . Theres no broken bones but she does have a big bruise and black eyes . Both are black now . 
      She is getting the most out of the NHS right now!
      I will go to another dig another time. Been a long time since i have searched land .

      Yesterday after work which i finished at 8pm i got home and had a while to rest before going to the beach for the night . I got there at around 1am and first because the tide was very high and long i used the 705 on the dry tops for the coinage . For the first hour or so i seemed to miss all or most of the coinage , seemed to be passing around them i think . Then when i got to an area near pubs i started to find a steady stream of coinage , after a while i found a then broken now fixed Silver bracelet and a lighter. After that i was still finding more coinage . At around 4am it was starting to get light and i knew it would be time to change to the Nox but for a while longer i stayed with the Terra and then on the tops which in a small area were being turned over by a digger i found an old Silver ring .
      At about 5am i took the Terra's control box and coil off the Anderson stem and put the Nox box and coil on and started the low tide , soon after i found a small Silver ring and a few coins but the finds were few and far between . At around 6am a few other people turned up to detect and 2 were using Nox's . After seeing and talking to the first one i saw i went along the beach into the surf a bit and found a Silver band . 
      By 7am i was getting a bit knackered and wanted rest but the long low tide kept me going for a bit longer but apart from a few targets i was getting nothing else so at 8.30am i finished and left the beach.
      My finds with the Terra were £49.96p , a Silver ring and Silver bracelet and the Light and a small foreign coin and a 20 Euro Cent .
      My finds with the Nox were £4.86p , 2 Silver rings and 2 x 20 Euro Cents .
      The tides will be getting shorter from now so not sure when i will use the Nox next , maybe a different beach somewhere but my normal beaches are not sandy all the time unless long tides .

      Well, I'm going to tell you I found a new 'category' of item this morning with the 800.  I'm at the beach where I found a piece of .925 silver hoop, a puka necklace and just over $1.50.  I hear this somewhat 'strange' wobble but not negative.  It is repeatable so I dig.  Upon digging I see this piece of glass and I'm glad to take it out of the beach/surf but then the signal is gone.  What?  Can't be the piece of mirror but it is ...
      Has anyone found mirror pieces with a detector before?

      After work yesterday i went to the beach at 9pm for a start at 9.30pm . There is a big thing going on at this weekend and the beaches are very crowded . I started low down the beach but found little so started to search between the crowds and found coins , if the beach was less busy at that time i would have found much more . Later in the search i found a £10 note and then a £20 note . I also found a few mobile phones but left them alone , cant be bothered with them . 
      As it says in the title it was a big q!55 up and there was tons of rubbish all over the place . I always take a rucksack with me and i found during the search 16 440 and 500 ml tins of Stella and other Beers , i also had 3 liters of drink in the ruck for me too so i was getting weighed down by the time i found all that and there was lots more beer i could have picked up but had to leave .
      At the end of the search which i had to cut short because of the Beer i had found 2 junk rings , the 2 notes and £62.92p in coinage , no picture of the Beers , 3 have gone now . I would have stayed on the beach till the first Bus at around 8am but i was knackered .
      I dont know if i can get back out this week . Mum is going into Hospital in London Guy's Hospital for her Lung Cancer Operation on Wednesday , when she comes home all being well she will need to be looked after and i am taking unpaid leave from work to do that for a week or 2 .
      Maybe Thursday or Friday is possible but ?
      On Tuesday i will be selling my first Equinox 800 to someone i know from a previous club membership . He needs a new machine and i feel i only need 1 Nox anyway , i will buy new coils laters for it. The next search will be with the ET or the Terra again . I will use the newer Nox later .
