Another rare (140k mintage) coin for you.  Too bad about the condition but still an excellent find.  Thanks for recording the video.  Always glad to see/hear how a detector responds in the wild.

Great Video...it's fun watching other guys detecting styles...Tom likes to stab the ground with his Lesche like he's going after a steak. Glad you got the seated. Was this the trip from a couple weeks ago?

Yep bummer on the condition, but still a thrill to dig. Thanks for taking a look!

Thanks!  Yep from a few weeks ago.  He does have a stabbing routine,  I've watched him scratch a couple of nice coins (a semi-rare $10 gold piece) with his stabbing recovery method, but each to their own.

      Been a while since I put together a video, but over Labor Day weekend I worked a ghost town putting the Equinox 800 to the test and it didn't disappoint!

      I went back to the place we've been hunting all year with the Nox to try some different settings at a spot that we hit several times before. I hit it with the CTX using the 11" and 6" coil and the Nox using the 11" and 6" coil  earlier this year.
      Today I ran the 800 with the 11" coil with these settings:
      Park 1
      Recovery speed 3, used recovery speed 6 the last times.
      Iron bias 0, have always ran 0
      Manual GB this time instead of factory preset of 0
      Sensitivity of 23
      2 Tones
      No disc, dug everything from +9 and up
      All the mini balls and buttons were deep, 8+ inches and gave a repeatable tone. I used a much slower and deliberate sweep this time compared to a faster swing in the beginning. All in all, I was very pleased with the outcome, my plan is to go back and come at it from a different direction next time.
