  1. That’s going way back and humans still can’t come together. Some things never change. Mans desire for gold has been around for a very long time.
  2. With that big 15” coil watch out. Next you’ll be digging up a VW bug like 4 feet deep, lol.
  3. That’s a sweet looking Gold Bug Steve. Should be interesting to find out how it performs when you get it back. I still enjoy tinkering with some of the old analog detectors.
  4. So happy you found your ring. Perseverance and enough time learning what to look for paid off. Sounds like iron was masking it but the Minelab came through for you. Congratulations!
  5. Contact the Lowcounty metal detecting club on FB or George at 843-518-8183. His email is jsmegm4423@yahoo.com. He lives in Summerville and detects at Folly and Isle of Palms most every week. I’m sure he will be happy to come help you look for it. Tell him I suggested you contact him.
  6. There are others that will assist you such as Lostmystuff.com, and local detecting clubs on FB. Where are you located? As far as the detectors, work with the one you have the most hours on. The smallest DD coil is a good idea and be sure to keep the coil low as is rubbing the top of the grass and overlap your swings by say 50%. The ring you are looking for is most likely not over a couple of grams in weight. It should be a low number most likely. Slow down and try different directions like Dig5050 said. If the grass was mowed with a grass catcher bag there is a chance the ring was sucked up into the bag. If there is a place where the grass bag was emptied I’d check there. If it was hauled away then you may be out of luck.
  7. That’s wonderful news! I had the Bigfoot coil for a while and used it on Whites MXT and MX5. Fun to use for parks and recent drops. X marked the target, no need for a pin pointer. The SEF WSS 5x10 coil works similar on the Whites just not as long a pattern. Hope they or Minelab can come up with one for the Nox!
  8. Your story reminds me of the old credit card commercial, “don’t leave home without it”, and at least a 9 mm or 357 mag. 😜
  9. Right place at the right. Don’t see a really good cut like that often.
  10. There’s coins you don’t see everyday. Nice finds!
  11. When in doubt dig it out. I tend to run mostly wide open and take my chances on what might be under the coil.
  12. You earned that gold Gerry. Stop by Harbor Freight, pick up a cheap pick, mount a magnet on it with a screw and some epoxy,lol. Maybe get a couple of extras just in case. Like those yellow rocks you found!
  13. Way to go Gerry, nice specimen. I'll get by to see you this next if you are in town and maybe you can give me a demo of the GM 24K.
  14. Good point, since White's will ship head phone adapter it would an additional income stream to sell a coil adapter for "dry" use only. I too have the Shooter coil and the WSS SEF coil that may be killer on the MX Sport for small object and nuggets. Hmm my mind is spinning.
