  1. 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...

    well I finally got out with my new Minelab Equinox 800 today on a brand new permission. I had two misfires before even starting the hunt. I forgot the new probe that came with the detector and I could not remember how to sync the machine to wireless headphones and my 4 index cards had...
  3. There can be only one - my new Equinox 800!

    well guys I returned the Deus II because I really didn't like it and replaced it with the Minelab Equinox 800. It is a solid machine and I can't wait to get out and find some real treasure!

  5. What are basic differences between Minelab Explorer II vrs Equinox 800?

    I'm looking for experienced Minelab'ers who have used both in the field and not opinions from non-users. I know Nox is waterproof. So what else does it buy you on the upgrade? Is there a big learning curve going from EX II to Nox? I'll be hunting mainly farms, lawns, woods and some beach...

  7. Understanding Money in Colonial America - well worth 8 minutes to watch!

    One very interesting thing this guy said was basically: Traveling folks would carry silver spoons or wear silver buttons. If they ran out of money, they could remove a silver button from their coat and pay for supper and have a nice stay at the inn. That's how scarce money was in those days...
  8. Thinking outside the box and honey holes - how I found two of them.

    Back in 2004, I noticed someone posting incredible finds on the forum and that they were in my county. I managed to get out MD'ing with this person a couple times but I knew it was not to his honey holes. He was the friendly type and willing to share a lot of things. Then I found out he was...

  12. So perhaps this is an undocumented colonial coin?

    What I have is smooth slab colonial copper with almost perfectly aligned clay pipes in a circle. I'll assume they used large coppers, ground them smooth, and then added these 5 pipes. If interested in further info - look here: https://www.academia.edu/10032294/PAS_Roundup_2012 page 394-5 Figure...
  13. 1809 Capped Bust Dime - what was your best coin find that turned out to be counterfeit?

    Almost a decade ago, I found a 1809 Capped Bust Dime where I had found Spanish reales and colonial coppers. I was so excited by finding a key date dime that was actually this old. It looked like it was dropped not long after minted to me but had some funny marks or bubbles that on it. I thought...
  14. Some of my best finds, oldest finds, finds I like best when I was posting on TN

    These are some of my best finds, oldest finds, and finds I like best while I was posting on TN. Unfortunately, I have been diagnosed with terminal cancer and the doctors gave me 1-3 years to live as of April. I'm not sure I'll ever hunt again but I wanted to post these as a memorial to what...

  17. Spear point???

    long see, no time. This was found digging in my backyard PA. It looks like a spear point to me but maybe it's just a sharp stone. Has quartz in it. Looks very old to me. About 1 inch wide. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks!
  18. Oak Island 'reality' show - Bogus adventure IMO

    The so called Oak Island 'reality' show has turned into a boardwalk barker, drag it out as long as possible, bogus adventure that will produce nothing at the so called target depths being touted. That's because there is nothing there to find. I now believe the whole story is based on untruths...
  19. During the robot wars

    my wife handed me this cartoon which about sums up what happens when you interrupt an engineer trying to solve a problem. *L* you really don't want to become the focus of an engineer's undivided attention of a social network. Now I've lost all interest - such is life. HH all! :) We did end...
