  1. Jacob looked over at me and stated flatly that nothing ever changes when there is gold. .... How True ....
  2. Eric check the tides around Good Friday. That's the time to get the gold. I hit a beach in QLD that my brother got over 300 gold rings from in a ten week search. He was sure that I would not get much after his effort. I manage to find over 50 old and heavy gold rings at the low tides in the fortnight I stayed with him, much to his surprise. He did OK too and found these false teeth made from old sovereigns.
  3. In Cat Ballou the good horse drank whiskey, just ask Lee Marvin 1965. 🙄
  4. What about the big coil in the back ground can't see the detector.
  5. My eyes must still be OK, as I was guessing it was pushing the 40 ounce mark. As far as Reg goes I have seen him calling a 20+ ounce piece a nugget on a forum, but he might of been on hard times back then. 😀
  6. On the right holes dug by shovels back in the 1800s On the left mining by machines recently. I always fill in my holes mainly to prevent others from knowing it has been productive. As far as detector holes go they pale into insignificant compared to the damage done by mining.
  7. beatup lets hope that's the baby, and Big Mumma is near by. By the way that bit you got definitely make the Ozzy nugget standard it is not a speck. 🤨
  8. That scoop looks well engineered. Less than $150 US or $220 AUD.
  9. The hi-light of your collection is the green thing in your first photo. I have not seen one here in Oz. 😀
  10. Gerry I was looking for the fish in your mouth, did I miss it. 😀
  11. Compass have a look at this link...........https://www.1stdibs.com/jewelry/rings/band-rings/tiffany-co-atlas-diamond-18k-rose-gold-open-band-ring-54/id-v_14019822/.......... I really like the design, but the price.

  13. It looks like a new detector will be on the market soon and the hype has to get them interested in the new detector that can get a Threepence at 2 feet (60 cm.)
  14. I don't see any Eastern Brown Snakes, Tiger Snakes, Crocodiles, Wild Camels, Pack of Dingos, Hoards Files and not the last, the DROP BEAR .... There is always some good points with these Creatures they scare many non Australian Residences away from OUR GOLD. 😁 ..................☠️..................Grizzly bear
  15. They are the ones I like you don't have to dig them. Well done. Did you hit it with the detector or saw it first.
  16. I guess it is our fault you lost the ring, because you took the photo for us letting her get the drop on you. 😀
  17. 0.647967 grams well there is always next time "Norvic" There will be a smile on the winners face.
  18. Eric it was like that on the gold fields when most prospector started to using the brand-new Whites and Garrett VLF (late 1970s early 80) and the holes took 10 minutes or more to dig, with a crowd of newbies watch you dig up a ground noise. ☺️ The earphones were a must in the early days even on the beach with kids wanting to dig up your treasure, A hundred of them fighting to get it first. I must admit I had one kid at a certain beach do the work and keep the non $ coins. As a matter of fact I could not get on the sand for more than 5 minutes and he would appear from nowhere. I found out a lot later that he was the only child of a single Mother so those coins were appreciated I'm sure.
  19. Wow. You should of stayed a few minutes longer and cracked to ounce for the trip. By the way most detectorist don't do that in a day.
