    Thanks for the post of your detecting day. No shortage of targets!
  3. Park, lot, and curbstrip marathon

    That big hunk of copper might be worth a few bucks. Sometimes I find more value in the scrap of the junk I dig vs. the face value of the coins.
  4. Cleanest cap gun ever.

    Looks like you found yourself a nice spot to dig. That's half the battle!
  5. Ranch Revisited - 8 Years Later with Equinox 800

    There is a small 15 acre ranch right down the road from me (less than a mile) that I detected pretty hard 8 years ago. There was one corner area loaded with iron that I avoided. I decided to go back with a new machine (Equinox 800) and a positive attitude aided by the fact that this place is...

  8. ๐Ÿฅ‡ BANNER My First US Gold Coin!

    The soil was wet but nothing else in the hole. The difference is making me question my memory! In any event, I'm digging any non-ferrous target and the bigger ferrous targets where there is a possibility of cool old stuff.

    Leave your guns at home!
  11. ๐Ÿฅ‡ BANNER My First US Gold Coin!

    It took almost 40 years but I finally found a US minted gold coin. I put my small coil on the Equinox 800 with the intention of working an area that is laden with square nails, deteriorating cans and junk. Never got there. As I was crossing a dry creek I got a solid 20 on the VDI and thought...
  12. Coin Purse

    While detecting deep in the woods I found a purse bar along with 5 dirt encrusted items all in the same hole. I pulled them all out and was totally expecting to find a nice assortment of gold rush era coins when I cleaned them up. This was my first ever coin purse and it was about 8 inches deep...
  13. 1930's Hubley Cast Iron Crash Car

    Found this hunk of iron the other day. Still working on cleaning it up ... color is coming back after a nice citric acid bath. I was looking for old iron tools so this was a bonus.
  14. Gold Denture Plate

    Nice conversation piece for the ages. I love old dump sites ... lucky you to have one out the back door. :icon_thumleft:
