    Good Karma!

    Today, I was at the beach doing my normal fruitless sweeps when this lady asks, "How much do those machines cost?" I told her that prices vary widely, but a decent detector can be had for around $300. Then she proceeds to tell me that she's going to buy them for Christmas presents for her grown children. Then, she tells me that her son-in-law lost a $5k necklace yesterday right down there(she points). I told her that I'd be glad to look for it. She then told me that it would be a waste of time because they called a detectorist to look for it yesterday and he couldn't find it. I told her I'd be happy to look anyway.
    Anyway, in about 15 minutes, I had found it. I thought the guy was going to cry. He tried to give me $100 dollar bill, which I refused.
    That necklace was, by far, the most expensive thing that I have found at the beach and I was super happy to be able to find it for them.
    Interestingly, the big'ol white gold necklace only produced VDIs of 2-3 on my Vanquish 540.

    Yup 2-3 VDI on chains seems common. The size of the signal in pinpoint gives more clues.

    I agree. I vote honorable mention for a job well done. You will find more goodies you get to keep if you stay with it. When I first started it took a long time for the good stuff to show up, but you learn as you go and before long the goodies became much more common. Congratulations on a great find, stay safe and keep swingin.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    The Bald Eagle photo...he/she posed for me, gave me it's best American look. I felt privileged to get the shot.
