  1. Welcome, I'm a 600 user myself. Starting out, keep it simple for a while. In fact, I've pretty much kept mine simple from day one and just this morning recovered a 1790 half reale in Park 1 and sensitivity of 24. Its a fun hobby and rather addictive. Good luck! HH Jim Tn
  2. Good hunting, nice coins and relic's. With those older date coins, might be a few more hiding around there. Hit it pretty good. HH jim tn
  3. Good research and glad it paid off with some nice treasures. Neat looking spot. That loaded sock gives new meaning to "knocking some cents/sense into ones head." HH jim tn
  4. Great spot and some good hunting! Got love a hunt with a gold coin in it. HH Jim Tn
  5. From my experience, cudamark is close to the % I am aware of. I was the Sec./Treasurer of a detecting club for several years and a member for 25 or so and lady detectorists averaged 10% and occasionally would see 15% percent in attendance at our meetings and club hunts. Only 2 or 3 at any given time were husband/wife teams. A couple were widows and another 2 or 3 detected but their husbands didn't. HH Jim Tn
  6. Yeah, that's a pretty nice hit. WTG! HH jim tn
  7. The Legend (new) manual is posted on their web site and it appears they may be shipping. Video over on Findmall of a guy showing the various programs and how to navigate through the menu. HH Jim Tn
  8. This summer I will have 50 years with this great hobby and with numerous times of encouragement my wife has never shown an interest in taking it up. She is always curious as to what I find, I hunt almost daily, but very seldom takes any serious interest in any of my jewelry finds. Most importantly, however, she has always been (pretty) supportive of my treasure seeking endeavors. HH Jim Tn
  9. Welcome! Bama will be a tad different then Ohio, but you no doubt already know that. pent a good deal of time down around Mobil, back in my working days. Good luck! HH Jim Tn
  10. Back at ya, and to everyone else, Merry Christmas. HH Jim Tn
  11. Like you, many of us have learned the hard way about checking detector, headphones, before leaving the house. Just this week, my buddies wireless headphones wouldn't power up. A quick check at the house would have shown this to be the case. Thanks for posting, a good reminder. HH Jim Tn
  12. I've found 2 pretty hefty chains in the last 5-6 years that were marked 14k Italy, and both were fake. Dang things looked pretty good, too. Better luck next time. HH Jim Tn
  13. Some nice old coins and good job on the 1/3rd of 3 center. Neat that you at least know the date. I recovered half of a half dime a few years ago, but my half was without the date. Nice spot to hunt! HH jim tn
  14. Michael, beautiful country as I recall. Take care! HH Jim Tn
  15. Hi Michael, welcome. What area in northern Mn do you reside? Wife and I grew up in Moorhead, but vacation there annually. I, and 3 grown sons, for a number of years now visit Arnesens's on Lake Of The Woods, the first week of June, walleye fishing. Nice gold and eagle button! iHH jim tn
  16. Nice pile of coins, Dan, and good on the silver. Tom Ca, you must leave a lot of good targets behind if you only dig 6" and deeper targets. HH jim tn

    You plan on hunting fresh water and sand and almost any detector will work in those conditions, creeks, lakes, etc. I use the Equinox 600 and the Simplex + in those conditions and both work well and are waterproof. I like the Nox over all better as it has a few more features going for it then the Simplex +, but does cost more...but still nicely under your budget. Good luck, HH Jim Tn
  18. Enjoyed the images. My wife is packing as I write this. HH jim tn
  19. That's a nice find, beach or land. Nice condition, too. HH jim tn
  20. I would work that dry sand area a little more with finding a couple of older coins. Good hit on the Franklin. HH Jim tn
  21. Looks like the sleeve on a electric light switch. The notch is where the on/off knob comes through. IMHO anyway. That one has been smashed, they are round. HH jim tn
  22. Welcome! Back in my working days I had a lot of business trips into Charleston. Lovely old and interesting city. HH jim tn
  23. Great button and in very nice shape. Good hit! HH jim tn
