  1. 1903 indians pocket spill from the old transient camps along the river with my mxt and 10 x 5 detech coil. They must been very close together because vdi came up 74, l was expecting modern firearm brass and was very surprised when the first indian popped out, a quick check of the hole and still a signal , another one emerged from the semi frozen ground. I had the mxt in relic mode, discrimination at 3. Also recovered some clad and cheap jewelry and the usual .22 brass and bullets and junk. The last image is of remnants of RR track that used to run through the area.
  2. I ordered the new handle from whites today ......$33 and some change and that includes the shipping. I never liked that s- rod, the handle is too slim for me . I think it will be a fairly simple conversion . I will post more as it progresses. Thank you Steve for your input.
  3. I was considering putting my 4b on a dfx shaft, doesn't look like a big deal to me, but guy at whites said different. If l had it on the dfx shaft l would have the option of straight shaft or s shaft with pistol grip depending on which lower shafts l use. Has anyone ever done this before or have any info that might help me before l tackle this ? Thanks to all who reply.
  4. I've never bought from the classifieds before but I have a paypal acct. I use to buy from ebay
  5. Seen this on E bay, could this be a china fake ? said it came with wireless module and headphones and was under warranty until dec 2020.

  7. must be something wrong with your trx, send it back to whites. my trx hits on small gold the carrott doesn't even know exists. I can get about 1/8 to 3/16 of an inch depth on gold that is 0.1 gm.
  8. The mxt hit a home run at an old ballpark recently with this 43 war nickel. Also found a wheat penny and some clad and a little trash. Funny thing happened on this particular hunt, I was heckled by a passerby in their vehicle who pointed at me and laughed out loud, don't know if he was laughing at me or my old White's detector . Anyway I didn't let it get me down and had a good hunt. Has that ever happened to anyone else on the forum ?
  9. I've seen the Hoover Boys on utube using a swim noodle fixed into a ring with fine mesh zip tied to it and a tether string so it floats close by. They dump the contents of the scoop on it and go through it with a pinpointer. Maybe that would work well for the small jewelry ?
  10. there's been some rain recently but that particular strip is in front of some old apts. and there were some underground sprinklers so I guess it is irrigated regularly. best of luck to you in your detecting.
  11. very nice ! too bad the edge is so corroded.
  12. I suspect the double loop attachment is for possibly leather or braided cord, not a traditional chain. As for the pick, I brought it because I've never hunted that area before and was unsure what the digging conditions would be. The ground was actually fairly soft where the pendant was found. It was about 4" deep and I think it has been there maybe 5 yr's or less judging by the oxidation. The condition of the find shows how careful I was in recovering it.
  13. Hunted an old transient camp along the river yesterday that I have been eyeballing for quite a while. It paid off after about 10 min. with this 925 eagle pendant. Found the usual brass cartridges, bullets and some modern clad also. I used my vintage tesoro bandido umax, garrett pro find pinpointer and homemade prospector pick. The pendant was found a couple feet from where I parked the bike by the tree.
