    How I got here from there

    Well, after 2 1/2 years with my first MD, a Garrett Ace 400, I've decided to upgrade to a NOX 800. Found good deal, no tax, no shipping, and 15% military discount. Funded $500 of it from my 2 1/2 years of quarters and dimes, all clad. Keeping my halves, dollar coins, and two rings, one gold and one SS w/gold inlay. Four jars in back 400 quarters each, two on left in front, 500 dimes each. paltry 140 nickels. It's been fun, hope I can do as well or better with the NOX. BTW, not one of these was silver.Click image for larger version.

    This is exactly what I hope to do, i.e. fund my next detector with my finds. I doubt I'll be as successful as you, though.

    The thanks goes to Minelab for offering it to vets and active duty. Not many do.

    "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.
