  1. Beautiful old coin!!!! First time I noticed they only spell out half of the word "dollar" (DOL.) on the reverse.
  2. Good video with comparisons between the two. I appreciate these when VDI's and tones are shown. Thanx for posting.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Congrats on those cool finds. Looking for my 1st Chinese coin.
  6. I think I just busted a stitch. Too damn funny!!! Seriously, I have stitches in my gut right now.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Congrats on all those great finds!!!!! That would be a dream hunt for me. Great site...excellent researching, no doubt.
  10. TN....have you done a video yet with deep faint squeaker targets? I hear enough of em on my Nox and retrieve all sorts of targets from silver to relics. I'd like to hear you digging the deep stuff with not-so obvious signals/tones. I enjoy your videos very much.
  11. Congrats on those additional finds Gerry but what took you so long to go back there?
  12. Incredible MD experience for you and congrats to the family!!!
  13. Congrats on a fantastic hunt!!!! I've driven by a number of old street tear outs but unfortunately, too much traffic around and/or bad timing on my part.
  14. OMG!!!!!! Metal detecting doesn't get any better than this. I would have passed out on the spot. I thought it was interesting the author called the finder an "amateur metal detectorist" although he has been detecting for 7 years. At what point are you not an "amateur"? Just sayin.....
  15. Thanks for chiming in everyone. Digs that are somewhat out-of-the-box from its norm are worth a post for educational purposes. This was one of them due to its tone, TID and position of coin.
