    Mike~Where could I get a good tumbler? I had one a few years ago and it leaked and broke shortly thereafter! Does everyone else tumble there clad also?

    Iskuli, Kellyco has the same tumbler I bought two years ago for the same price of $60.00, it works great but I only tumble a few times a year as I do not coin shoot much, it has more than paid for itself. Check it out at http://www.kellycodetectors.com/acce.../coinitems.htm . HH, Mike

    Re: UPDATED: 77 Rings & the REST of my 2007 finds w/pics (check out 2 sets of te

    Iskuli,
    Thank you *SO* much for your pointers that you've given on this thread. I just started really fooling around with the settings on my White IDX Pro, and I realized that when I turned up the discrimination, I found LOTS of coins. It was a good feeling, but I had a feeling that I may have been missing stuff. You definitely confirmed my feelings... and I'm going to go back to the place I detected on Sunday, down the road from my church. The place I detected is where the Spanish explorer, Panfilo de Narvaez landed in 1528! So the place definitely has history behind it, both modern and ancient. I used to do some archaeological digs with my group back in high school at this area, and found some good Native American artifacts from the site (i.e. Pottery shards, Pinellas Points, etc.). I'm really excited to go back now. I'll dig up as much trash signals as I have to in order to find some significant finds. You may not know, but should I switch out my big Pro coil for the smaller sniper-type coil that's made for trashy areas? Or would it do any good? I already get a ton of signals as it is.
    Thanks again!!

    Re: UPDATED: 77 Rings & the REST of my 2007 finds w/pics (check out 2 sets of teeth)

    Bran, I would definately recommend the sniper coil for trashy areas! The problem with trashy areas is that good sounds will mingle, or bounce off the trash. I have proven to myself, time and again, that if I am in an area that people swim, or do sports, they ARE going to lose jewelry. Unfortunately, to find it, you've got to be willing to pull up the junk. I like a larger coil for fields; such as, a soccer fields. It takes forever to grid out a soccer field with a smaller coil. Take it slow and overlap your swings. Thanks for looking and happy hunting!

    Iskuli,
    If you have a Harbor Freight near you, they have a great single barrel rock tumbler for about $30. I think it is a Chicago brand?
    I use one of them on my clad coins, and other hard to clean small relics. It works great.
    Good luck,

    What a fantastic haul........I think I just might have to check out some of those old park sites I have been putting off for the past few years. Relic hunting has taken up plenty of my time over the years. But looking at those great ring finds. I might have to make a few changes this detecting season and check out those old school sites and parks! Great job! WTG Good luck in 2008 ........Hit that goal!

    Thanks for the advice. I'm gonna switch out coils and hit up that place again...
    I don't mind digging up the trash. Kinda makes me feel good that I'm finding something period, plus I'm cleaning up the area or beach.

    1. I choose a place to hunt that I know for a fact LOTS of people go for recreation. My personal favorites are lake parks (lots of jewelry lost). I am beginning to really like the woodchips where kiddos play thanks to BDOOs posts and inspirational finds!
    You are right.. I found about $5. in clad in a 10ft X 10ft woodchip lot, in about an hour or 2..
    They are asy digging and very productive too..
    Nice 1st photo looks like "RINGS ARE a girls best friend"!
    Congrats.
