  1. As I peruse this thread I just wanted to say thanks to all of the contributors for the good advice. 🙂
  2. Congratulations on your find of a very unique specimen. If it were my find I think I would leave it as-is and not remove the nugget. It may be worth more as a unique specimen. Just food for thought. In any case best wishes for continued success in the area.
  3. Thanks for sharing your experiences and I'm glad that there were no ill effects on your detector.
  4. Because no one has yet replied to your question, I thought I'd give it a try. I do not have a handle, but in a prior life I custom manufactured antique car parts. If you can find a picture of the handle, especially if you can get dimensions, it may be possible to have one custom made. Even without dimensions, it is possible to make a reasonable reproduction. Just food for thought. Best Wishes on your search and use of the equipment.
  5. Congratulations on your nice finds, especially the silver and finding a new untouched area. It is always a thrill to be the first into an area. Best wishes for additional finds.
  6. Geof and Steve: Thank you very much for your help. Much appreciated.
  7. In addition to nugget hunting I am also a history buff and I would like to learn more about metal detector technology, its history and sequence of development. I understand that the BFO (Beat Frequency Oscillator) technology was used in the very early metal detectors. Right now I would like to learn what is the difference between TR (transmitter receiver), induction balance, and VLF technologies and when was each one introduced to the market. Is there anywhere where I can find a list of manufacturers, the models (technology) they offered and date range they were offered? I have searched
  8. Jim: Thanks for your input. Much appreciated.
  9. GoldSeeker5000 and Aureous: thanks for your input and recommendations.
  10. Goldseeker 5000: I have the 4x6 oval, the 6" round, the 6x10 oval and the 14" oval coils.
  11. I am looking for some guidance on what coil size to use when I go into an area for the first time. I am using a White's Goldmaster 24k and have a complete set of coil sizes. I would be working in either Nevada or Arizona. When I enter an area for the first time I do not know if it has been worked previously or is virgin ground. Does this information affect my coil size choice? Should I plan to make just one pass over an area or two passes using a large coil first and then a smaller coil? I don't want to miss a larger deep target and I would also like to find the smaller near surface targ
  12. Thanks for sharing and congratulations on the find. Yes, Two Toes crevice tools are really nice and well made.
  13. Valens: Thanks for the info. I was unaware that these were available. For many years I carried the cut and suck type kit and finally disposed of it. Steven
