  1. Congrats on that beautiful Barber!!!! I hope you go back and post some more of your finds there.
  2. Awesome finds... congrats!!!! What are kettle points? I googled and not much on it's history, origins.
  3. You have been killing it out there!!!! Congrats on your first Spanish silver.
  4. FWIW.... I haven't seen a coin like this posted in any MD forum....at least not yet. It was a zinc signal 20-21 about 4-5" deep.
  5. Hey there Glazed Tofu. 600 here also. I run primarily in Park 1, high sens as long as it is stable, 0 IB, 0 disc, 7 threshold, recovery 3, iron volume on 3, 50 tones. I've hunted in all modes but keep going back to Park 1, most likely out of habit. I haven't noticed digging anything better or worse in either mode. I hunt in high trashy parks and lot sites in L.A. & burbs and I love this machine in 50 tones. I have hundreds of hours on this machine and my coin/relic finds have been awesome. I'll have to show off my 2019 collection at years end.
  6. OMG!!!! What a site!!! Congrats!!!! Re a small coil for the Nox.... probably not for me. I used to use one on my FBS machine, but it needed it in trashy sites. But due to the speed of the Nox, it can separate quickly among multiple targets in tight spots. I like it just the way it is
  7. Beautiful old coin!!!! First time I noticed they only spell out half of the word "dollar" (DOL.) on the reverse.
  8. Good video with comparisons between the two. I appreciate these when VDI's and tones are shown. Thanx for posting.
  9. I really enjoyed your video. Deer in the orchard and beautiful scenery. I would imagine that if you keep working it some old coins and relics will show.
  10. You had a successful hunt GB.... congrats on the buff and merc. I have a similar site to yours. I've covered about 1/4 of it and it just keeps producing great coins and relics. Since I've had my Nox, I only run in 50 tones due to my last machine (Safari) which is basically a tone machine. My site is where homes were torn down in the 50's and it seems none of the trash was hauled out of there cuz I'm digging it all up. I don't mind though it's a great learning process for tones/targets and I look forward to each and every target no matter the tone or VDI. Thanks for posting your detailed report.
  11. Congrats on those cool finds. Looking for my 1st Chinese coin.
  12. I think I just busted a stitch. Too damn funny!!! Seriously, I have stitches in my gut right now.
  13. Does anyone know if they would come out of the ground dirty as a regular Jefferson? I have about 500 niks to go through but for me it would be well worth it if I had one in the mix. I have several War Niks and one of em is the 43' S high tone. Would love to have a Henning.
  14. You have brought back memories for me Walter. I had a home in the San Fernando Valley and spent lots of fun time there. That token was from the Malibu Grand Prix. Other notable places of fun during that time were Busch Gardens, now Anheiser Busch Breweries and Devonshire Downs Race Track, now Cal State Northridge. How that 270 round got there is crazy. But, you never know... could've lost it's way during construction back in the day. In any event, good finds.
