I was hoping to be posting Gold Kruzer finds but haven't gotten to use it yet due to a missing part saga that is dragging out into week 4. So I took my trusty F75 LTD out this weekend and found this little white gold beauty. A nice solid 18 TID number on the F75.
Resizing has clearly removed the K content. I'll have to have it tested to find out. Thought it was platinum at first but decided the stones dictate a white gold.
Anyway....it made my day. Maybe it will juice up yours too.

Got out again today with my Equinox 800. Did not find a lot of coins, but did pull 1942s wheat penny and 14k gold ring. Stones in ring tested as diamonds at least according to my diamond tester. I used my usual Park 1, with recovery speed lowered to 4. Ring came in at solid 12 at about 5-6 inches. Excellent day.

I was able to go out detecting with the Nox 800 for the first time this year several days ago. The weather has been bad in Northern Nevada this year and I had minor knee surgery in early March. I didn't find a lot of coins , but did manage to find an unreadable date wheat penny, a tiny gold ring, and beautiful 17" necklace(unfortunately not gold.). The gold ring measured in at .9 gram and was by far the smallest gold ring I have found in 16 years of detecting. The Nox sniffed it out at about 6 inches down with a solid "9" . The ring was so small it was even hard to locate with my pinpointer , but finally managed to capture it. I was using my standard Park 1, recovery speed 5, iron bias 1, and sensitivity 18-20 based on conditions.

When you get a not so great high tone on the Equinox, but it is above most trash and reads below most coins...do you dig it?
Well I did just that yesterday and pulled this little Bear (#18) from about 5".
Lets see your odd # dirty swinger find.
Found this in the mix of pull tabs last year with my Tejon. Neighbor that does antique dealing said it is from the 30's. I tried emailing the maker that is out of NY their mark is CID but they just ignored me or chucked my email in their spam box. Any idea what it might be worth?
Has 7 deep blue sapphires and 4 small diamonds approx. 1/4 karats ea.

These are some of my recent beach gold finds with the 800. I’m glad they are not fish or else I would have throw them back for being too small 😅 I’ve had the detector since April and really enjoy using it, so now my excalibur II just collects dust. Good luck out there and happy hunting.
