    Thanks guys for all of you responding to my inquiry and helping ID these artifacts!! Much obliged!! I did find these 2 around an old home place and the others I have found, were around old homes as well.
  2. Please ID if possible.

    I have found several of these items but can't seem to ID them. Any help will be appreciated. The picture of the items show the front and back sides.
  3. First take on Coiltec 10x5

    Using my Equinox 600 with the Coiltek 10X5, I found these relics...Flintlock rifle parts, hatchet head and all these copper bells. It works extremely well!!!
  4. Ferrite Ring Cable Clip

    Went detecting again today in a field that has a major TVA electric power transmission line running right down the middle of it and therefore, has lots of EMI issues. Normally, I am constantly having to noise cancel or go to single frequencies to try and alleviate as much of the EMI as possible...
  5. Equinox sales

    Treasure Hunter: Figured that the number of sales were probably not listed anywhere but was just curious none the less. Ya never know unless you ask. By the way, love your avatar!!! My stepson is in the Marine Corps and stationed at Camp Le Jejune, NC.
  6. Equinox sales

    Just curious if anyone knows how many Equinox's have been sold since it's inception and if there is a breakdown of how many 600's vs 800's respectively have been purchased? I also wonder how it ranks as one of the best selling detectors? Anyway, just being curious....
  7. Received my new Equinox 600 today

    CreakyDigger: You are already learning the EQ 600!! Those were some good finds to start out with!!! Just like you had to learn your White's machine, so too will you learn some of the intricate details of the Equinox. Stick with the standard factory settings for now on the different search...
  8. Received my new Equinox 600 today

    You are going to really enjoy your new Equinox 600!!! It will take a bit to get used to it but once you get out and detect with it, it will amaze you!! I have had mine for almost 3 years and still learn a few new things with it!! Download the owners manual from Minelab and look over it a lot...
  9. Relic Settings?

    Lead Civil War Minie' balls and musket balls will normally have a VID number in the 17 to 18 range in Park 1 and Field 1. In Field 2, they may ring up 15 to 18. Not sure why this is in Field 2. If the field you are hunting is not trashy at all, dig everything including iron signals. I have...
  10. Nox Coil Issues

    I had a coil ear break not long after I got my EQ 600 over 2 years ago. Minelab sent a replacement. I believe that I had the coil bolt way too tight. So now, I make sure that the coil will move up and down a bit and not snugged up too tight. I also purchased a coil stiffener and I have not...
  11. Soil Mineralization

    Jason, thanks for the follow up. Was at work today and had a few moments to check on my question. I guess I missed your post about mineralization. I have went back and looked more closely at your post and Coin Hunter AZ and I now have a better understanding of mineralization. Thanks, everyone...
  12. Soil Mineralization

    Here in Mississippi, especially NE Mississippi, our soil type is predominately made up of calcium carbonate. Our soil has origins in the Cretaceous Period, when the shoreline of the Gulf of Mexico was much farther inland. Over millions of years, plankton that lived in the Gulf left behind...
  13. Soil Mineralization

    Well guys, as they say on the game show Family Feud: Good answer...good answer...but ain't exactly what I was looking for. LOL! I just want to try and understand how and why this term gets used so often in metal detecting lingo and what it does to affect our detectors, especially our...
  14. Soil Mineralization

    Sure this has been discussed before numerous times, but what exactly is "mineralization" of the soil? I went by our local USDA Soil Conservation Office and asked them this question and they basically went: Huh?? Told them I did some metal detecting and they could not come up with a viable...
  15. Hunting a harvested soybean field.

    Iron Buzz, thanks for this great suggestion!! I will definitely give this a try next time!!! One thing I have read, is that the conductivity of iron increases in wet grounds. This field was definitely wet!! Could be I was picking up very small pieces of iron that had been deposited over the...
