  1. I think you had a good day, Better than work!!! What would life be like without a grommet collection Ha Ha.
  2. Welcome BM, Glad to see you joined in on DP!!! I hope you share some of your finds with us, As I'm intrigued by the finds in other countries. Seems to be a tremendous amount of history in your country and I would love to know more about what you like to detect for and what you find. Happy Hunting.
  3. Thanks GB, I can always count on you to give me the coin info. I'll pick up the guide book. I never thought that one was available. My two favorite coins are the merc's and the indian head penny's, they are just works of art. I wish you lived closer I would have you out for a run on some of these places. I wish you the best of luck the next time out!!!!
  4. That stamped coin is a one of a kind find for sure, my heart did a little jump when I first saw the cross. I thought I was at Oak Island for a second Ha Ha. CVISChris The spoon is awesome !! I only realized what was on it when I washed it off. I thought it was some junky plated spoon.
  5. My day started by taking my wife to breakfast and a trip to a local greenhouse. On our way back we drove by a place I have wanted to hunt for a while and couldn't because the owners were just not to friendly. But low and behold I noticed some new house development signs. I did a quick title search and found out it was sold and being developed very soon. So I grabbed my stuff and headed back to this 1830's house. Today was the first day since I got the 800 I could spend more than an hour and a half detecting. My first two hours were a pretty much a bust except a cool silver plate spoon and my w
  6. My guess is a Saint Benedict medal. Maybe an older one. They were made in and around 1740
  7. Welcome AUG, Well if gold is what your after, you found the right forum. The gold people here will fill you in on anything your missing or want to know. Check out the DP database for a lot of great info, You will be surprised at how much cool stuff is awaiting your discovery. So glad to have you!!!!
  8. Good to have you here Arch, Glad your back at it!!!! And I'm really glad you joined up with this motley crew of of treasure hunters for some knowledge and info. As for the learning part, Heck we are all still learning and you'll fit right in!!!!
  9. Welcome PH69, You made it this far, Don't be shy. Tell us a little more about yourself and what you use and detect for most of the time. DP is a great site and full of some awesome people. I'm sure all of us want to see your tag name more than just once or twice. Pretty sure you made a great choice with the forum and certainly I'm looking forward to your questions and posts.
  10. Luckily I didn't dig one of their lamps, My wife would have a hell of a time trying to put it on her finger!!!
  11. Went to a local park today after work. Only had a couple of hours to detect and test out my new home made arm cuff. I wasn't a big fan of the plastic, and it was a little too wide and flexy for me. At this point I only have about 5 hours on the 800. The first hour today netted me a handful of clad and some misc. corroded zinc. The next hour was the same thing clad and junk. With only 15 minutes to chicken parm, I got a really nice 28-29, not expecting anything great, I proceeded to find out what it was. For a split second I thought it was another odd piece of stainless, But I quickly saw Tiffa
  12. As Hannibal from the A team always said, I love it when a plan comes together!!!!! Nice saves on the treasure. Great Job
  13. Great job on the saves!!!! You gotta love those kinda hunts!!! Wish you luck with the next shopping trip Ha Ha
  14. WELCOME Biggoldnug, Well if your looking for friends, Stories, Info and just good times you found the right place. Glad to have you here to help us all. Looking forward to your adventures.
  15. Yup I think its a keeper!!! GB, your correct. The zincoln's do do break on some weird spots depending on corrosion and ground conditions. The IH's with the 1864 year and bronze make up produce a different tone, VDI wise they are only a couple of points off. Over all my equinox and yours will most definitely react in much different ways, depending on soil and coin or target corrosion. Testing and digging to your liking will always produce results that are much different from our fellow detectors. Basic set up's are a help but they do not guarantee the best performance for all of of our area's.
  16. Little update, I got to looking at 2 of the large cents, because they looked a little small. Well after a little cleaning, One turned out to be a Connecticut copper and the other is a draped bust. Sadly they are in really bad shape.
  17. Welcome EH, Glad you joined up nice to have you here.
  18. Well after a long frustrating wait for Nokta's multi frequency machine, I could no longer wait or hold out. I received my new equinox 800 on the 19th and did some air tests and made a list of the VDI's and played with flipping the tones for my liking. After thinking the machine was just OK with some of my basic testing, It was time to run across the street to give it a run. I will tell you all that I have hunted this area to death with my MK. ( or so I thought) I only had 90 minutes to give its first test. I decided to dig every target with an 18 or higher VDI. Just trying to decifer my new
  19. Welcome Johnny T, Glad to have you on board!!! As VL said check your county for property listings and go from there, Also there are some mobile apps that you pay a fee for that will show you the owner just by driving by. As for starting out after permissions, Dig every signal to learn what the machine is telling you. It won't take long to figure it out. Once you hit around the 10 inch mark, You can pretty much figure it's a big chunk of iron or a flattened aluminum can. I wish you all the luck with the new endeavor. And remember ask all the questions you need to, We all will do are best to hel
  20. WOW Peg, Those are some great finds!!! I think I might have to give the fossil hunting thing a go one of these days. Thanks for posting and peaking my interest.
  21. Nice finds on the coins!!! Looks like Darth Vader beheaded Obi-Wan Kenobi Ha Ha !!!!
  22. large truck tire stem, looks like a great day of toobing at the lake Ha Ha, Did you find a beer can next to it?
  23. Welcome to the site!!! I would suggest a simplex or maybe a vanquish, Or whatever detector you have or choose, learn it. Most people over complicate the hobby, Just take your time and have fun. You will find out the plus or minuses of your machine to help you in your next purchase. Good luck Brian.
  24. Don't hold your breath, you might pass out. They keep posting items with no pricing or critical info. Almost like they are fishing for interest. I not sure about you but I would like to see the new multi before a shovel, hip holster, or head phones. I'm starting to wonder whats going on at Nokta. I think the accessory market is way overloaded with products and not sure why the marketing campaign is going in this direction. How about teasing the new multi? Garrett Did.
  25. So kinda like a cross between an old sheep and an american ground hog!!! I'm in, so somebody better start the fire. Oh and bring plenty of paper towels and beverages of choice.
