  1. Try using Google translate with your smart phone camera. I've never done that with a coin but it might just work.
  2. They are both glass but they aren't very round here is a picture.
  3. I almost forgot about one other find is an old token.... Jr quigley territory of montana 1863.
  4. Week after doing so research with historical maps and pictures of old buckeye az buildings I had 3 sites to check. One was an old house from the 30's now it's an empty field, one a 1890's school house also an empty lot, and the last was an old house from the 40's that burned down in the 90's and is still there. My finds included a 1958 franklin half, 3 wheat pennies, and a 1940s boy scout handkerchief clip. Oh and 2 really old marbles.
  5. Thanks for the replies guys. I can't see the mint mark if there is one. It may show up if I clean the coin good but I have no plans to do that lol
  6. Got out today for a few hours at an old homestead in downtown buckeye arizona. In the past I have found a silver dime, old pesos, some old buttons and lots of wheat. Well today was the best day yet. As soon as I got it off the truck I got a 29, 30 on the nox 800. I expected trash or a clad but I got a good, old surprise. A 1894 barber half! It's in poor condition and isn't worth much but it's my best silver find yet.
  7. So..... I was detecting this old abandoned home site..... Didn't ask permission for 2 reasons one it was way out of town middle of no where and 2 the lot was locked in a trust with no information I knew how to find to ask. Being in Arizona with open land everywhere and no "no trespassing" signs I figured I was good. About an hour after I got there a guy rolls up in a 4x4 truck and asks me who I was and what was I doing there.... Stupid me got defensive told the guy I'm detecting and who are you to care.... Turns out he was the owner.... I figured I was in for it now. I apologised and told him
  8. I looked but couldn't find it in the mud/clay. I figured I would go back today with a bucket and exchange some dirt and pan for it. I think it will be a red heart shaped ruby.... hopefully.
  9. Well got out last night for an hour before dark. I was only digging targets 10 and under on the equinox. After about 20 minutes I had this 14k ring it was about 4 inches deep and a solid 8 vdi. This is my second gold ring from this area.
  10. I toss mine in my cheap ultrasonic cleaner with tap water.
  11. I have found some very small gold with my 800 in places I went over already with my gold bug 2. That being said if I were buying new and strictly a gold hunter I would buy a gold machine it's what they are made for and they will do a better job. But in your case the nox it's a good choice. It's an awesome coin/relic machine and is very good at small gold nuggets. Since your looking for a number I would say 90% of a gold monster if you get the 6 inch coil for the nox.
  12. Well I got back to Payson where I found a few silver coins a couple weeks ago. I stumbled over another silver quarter with my equinox 800. Funny thing is it's the same year as the other quarter I found. 1961... This place has now given up a war nickel, 1968 half, and two 1961 quarters. This hunt also gave up a live .38 colt NP I thought was pretty interesting.
  13. Thanks guys. I hit that same place hard today nothing good. I have found more silver that wheat pennys now.... 3 to 4 lol Oh I bought 530 dollars in halves today.... Not a single silver.....
  14. Got 3 more silvers today in Payson Arizona. 1961 quarter, 1968d half, and 1943s war nickel. I also found a 1941 nickel... My oldest coin yet.
