  1. I'll check. I figured since it came out of the ground shiny without any corrosion, it was silver, but I will grab a magnet and see.
  2. So I've been getting a lot of clad coins with both the Equinox and the Vanquish 440 in the local parks, but even in the older ones, silver coins have escaped me for a couple of months now. In between thunderstorms this afternoon, I hit the neighbor's parking strip, and in less than ten minutes, I pulled two silvers and a wheatie! My first silver quarter, AND my first Canadian silver. The quarter is pretty trashed, but I'm glad just the same! Felt good to break the slump!
  3. Oh man Reese! Sorry to here that! Did this happen when you were over in Avon?
  4. Sorry it took me a while to check this out. Yes indeed it does! Rare earth magnets stick strongly to it. And one section of it appears almost melted.
  5. Sweet! Congratulations! I think it looks just fine the way it is. I like the bit of patina it has.
  6. Welcome, Mark! Looking forward to hearing more from you! ~Bash
  7. Gold futures (and the index futures, and pretty much all non agricultural futures) cease trading on Friday at 4:00pm Central time, and reopen for trading on Sunday at 5:pm Central time. They trade 23 hours a day, 5 days a week. The ag futures adhere to different hours of trading.
  8. I don't have coil supports on mine, but if the stock shaft fits ok with coil supports, then Steve's shafts should also.
  9. Got a full day's swing in today. What a joy! No silver, but lot's of clad. And my shoulder feels great! Well, it feels great for a 63 year old shoulder... Lol!
  10. Welcome Captain! DP is certainly the best source of quality detecting info I've found! Lot's of signal, and very little noise! ~Bash
  11. Hey Jay, Welcome to the forum! Yep, there's a large amount of great information here, and a lot of friendly and knowledgeable folks too. If you can't find what you're looking for by browsing and searching, ask some questions, and I can pretty much guarantee you'll get the answers you seek! My brother is in SC - hoping to get down and visit him this year. ~Bash
