  1. Congrats on the Indian!! Looks like you are getting along nicely with your 800 . Keep it up! Looking forward to seeing you get into the 1800's! 😁
  2. I've never hunted the beach so I don't know anything about that. I think you made the right move when it sounded good both ways and you dug it up. Good luck and HH!!
  3. In the town I live there was a civil war battle/skirmish...depends on who you talk to. It started approx 7 miles north of town that morning crossed over a creek, a branch and a river then thru town before ending up on the SE parts of town at dark. We still have two parks that both had fighting take place in them. We are able to hunt the parks but with that said they are littered with pop tabs, beaver tails,ect. and have been hunted like most parks to death. Hunting with an Etrac in the past you got a tell by the ferrous number while looking for lead. We need all the info we can get. What we have discovered with the Equinox is the numbers will jump around on lead...a lot. The pull tabs will lock on solid but the especially smaller roundballs will hit both ways and sound good but the numbers will not lock down. My son just got his Equinox 800 yesterday and we did a short hunt in one of the parks. I just got a good hit when he arrived and he was able to listen to it before we dig it and out came a nice round ball. I ended up with 3 more but smaller ones. He called me earlier this evening with his first relic find with the Equinox. Just as before he said numbers all over but good sound both ways and out came a nice round ball. I was wondering if you guys had any similar experience with yours. I've dug quite a few round balls so far and you can just about guarantee when you're going to dig lead. A tell is a tell to me no matter how it works. Whether the ferrous number is a little lower or the numbers jump.around, I like it. The Equinox definitely has a "tell" for lead. Here's some of the lead I've dug the last few hunts in one of the parks. Good luck and HH! Still pk1 recovery7 iron bias 3
  4. Thanks strick! I plan on just leaving all my finds to the kids/grandkids someday....they may sell them but it won't matter to me then.lol
  5. Out last night and got a nice 1892 S barber dime. Pk1, 5 tone, recovery 7, iron bias 3.
  6. I've been back to the park twice hunting the same area. First trip some lead, a blank cartridge(it still had powder in it) and a trigger of some kind...the second trip zilch!!....lol. Going back and try a different area. Oh, my first shield ever came from this park.
  7. Thanks Steve! Old nickels that I've found have many 11's mixed in with the 12&13's.
  8. I got a call from a friend who journeyed down this way so I meet up with him at an old park here in town. It's given up old coins a well as civil war relics. I wasn't prepared for what I was going to find. I dug an 1868 shield nickel! Wow! I was excited. Then just a short distance away I got another nickel signal. I hollered at Rick and said another shield nickel!! We were both laughing. His wife had come along so I told her she could have the rest of the area around the old Oak tree and I ventured off. Five min. later I hollered at Rick again " you're not going to believe this" it was another shield nickel. I have only found three shield nickels my entire life and to find three in one short hunt was just crazy! Anyways here's a pic of my finds. One round ball and three shield nickels. An hour and forty five minute hunt I will always remember. Tom
  9. Dan, I'd say you certainly did salvage the day with some awesome finds. Very Nice hunt! Tom
