    Deepest silver yet with Nox

    I had a window of 2 hours yesterday to hunt. Decided to hit my oldest site one more time before the growth took over this spring.

    I’ve pounded the main homesite on a now overgrown field, so decided to try Park1, Sensitivity 21, no Horseshoe and just cherry pick the field adjacent to where the early 1800’s home once stood. After finding nothing but shotgun headstamps in 1:45 minutes, I decided to swing the main homesite hotspot for the final 15 minutes.

    This spot has been hit by me slowly swinging Field2, a friends Deus, another friends AT Pro and my Ace over the years. Many great coins have come out o this 30’x50’ area, Nova, NJ copper, LC’s, KG’s, Rattlesnake button, etc.

    So yesterday with only 5 minutes left before having to turn off, I was at that “one last hole” mode. I got a fleeting flutey high tone occasionally in only one direction, but never a corresponding 30+ VDI. Clicked on the Horseshoe and got a lot of iron grunting along with the occasional flutey tone, VDI’s all over the place. Switched to pinpoint mode and surprisingly it pinpointed small and muted. Took a scoop and reswung and the occasional hightone was gone. Thinking now that this is definitely another rusty flat nail, but since it was my last hole why not dig it out a bit deeper. Reswung again, nothing but iron, but my carrot had a distinct small target at the bottom sidewall. Took 2 more scoops and it was out of the hole.

    I rechecked the hole and pulled out a 2”x2” chunk of iron.

    It is definitely my deepest silver so far with the Nox and probably my luckiest find.

    Thx John! That perfect silver dime hightone on the Nox is incredible. A little too loud and pronounced is probably a screw cap, way too loud and big a can, scratchy tracking iron is rusty nail. This ones fleeting peep of a hightone was a new one for me. Every other silver I have dug with the Nox was a tone I could get to repeat at least in one direction.

    So.... you’re saying that those fleeting little high blips that I hear once and then not could be deep silver??

    I notice this on both my mxsport and nox. which is why I run all metal because you can make that blip in the threshold repeat, but the depth and weakness of signal doesn't let the detector id it and give a solid or repeatable hit with the programs. still trying to really learn the nox in all metal, seems like it should do well though.

    The coin was probably on edge. The Nox still has issues with this, even after the latest firmware update.

    Yup. The Nox is a dig-all machine. I've dug silver I would have sworn was just a bent nail. Odd blips and blurps with high tones and VDI going from 12 -> 31. Cycling through the different frequencies and swinging over the target can sometimes help identify if it's truly junk or a potential good target. But, honestly, dig everything.

    I would say, maybe. I get those random hightone beeps at some sites with higher EMI when my sensitivity is high, but I can not get the tone to repeat.

    This target gave that peep of a big silver hightone every 3 or 4 swings in just one angled swing direction. At a proven old site, I would dig it again having had this experience.
