    well thanks very much - that's encouraging to be sure! And thanks for you comment on my finds. Ah 'Hub McCann (Secondhand Lions)' quote - know it well. Good one. Yes, I was pretty depressed initially but heard similar stories from 'Gare' on this site and a few others like Sergei 3 which was...

  7. 1809 Spanish One Reale - 1st hunt with NOX 800! 213 year old coin found!

    thanks for the very interesting background history on this coin. I'm still flying high as a kite given the whole scenario of this find!. I noticed the date on coin was a little weak from Mexico Mint but rest of coin was pretty picture perfect. Thanks again! HH!
  8. Ok brand new wireless headphones issue -RESOLVED!

    well it looks like these wireless headphones will not take a charge. The hard-wired option works fine. The charging not so much. The three red charging lights come on when I try to charge and then quickly all go out. But pushing MFB on headphones shows no flashing light. So unless I'm missing...

  10. 1809 Spanish One Reale - 1st hunt with NOX 800! 213 year old coin found!

    yeah I forgot about that as new to the machine. It appears these are not charging. I get three red lights when connected to charger and then it quickly shows no lights on. I think I was fooled by that on original charge - came back no red lights, assume charged. Either that or I did not turn off...
  11. 1809 Spanish One Reale - 1st hunt with NOX 800! 213 year old coin found!

    thanks! I'll definitely give that a try. Walking half is a great find too!
  12. 1809 Spanish One Reale - 1st hunt with NOX 800! 213 year old coin found!

    thanks! Yes, I went with pre-set program Park1 but there were 14 initial setup settings that I needed to look at and fine tune where necessary. So I wrote them on index cards and will carry when I go out detecting. Among them are ones I always do before I start detecting - Noise cancel, ground...
  13. 1828 Silver Half Dollar- definitely my find of the day, perhaps year, probably ever!

    wonderful find! Some folks used to place a coin under a large flat stone that was used to enter their house and the coin was normally the year the house was built. I wonder if this is how that coin got there? Ya just never know but why we love this hobby when you can find these kind of things...
  14. 1809 Spanish One Reale - 1st hunt with NOX 800! 213 year old coin found!

    Thanks! Here is close up of coins before I washed dirt off. I was so blown away by the Reale that did not take photos in hole or on top of the huge pile of dirt. And I had planned to start taking videos with a GoPro but that's still sitting in original box. But you can see the coin as I found it...
