This hobby just never ceases to amaze me. The odd finds! LOL!
Complete with patent no.
Had a pretty good giggle over this one! :laughing7:
Short walk, slim pickings but I had a wonderful time!
The earring was so thick it might as well had been a normal finger ring. Marked .925.
Answer: You bet it can!
The earring was an eyeball find so I didn't count it.
Doesn't look like much of a day until you hear the intention.
I wanted to test a theory today. I went to a local school yard that I have hunted with the AT-Pro. Thing is, I picked a certain segment of ground that...
Only time for a short walk. But, even so, this machine is surprising and impressing me.
Even a bit of sterling! But the content isn't as impressive to me as the size!
Look at how tiny this piece is!!
Ya know, I've never found a bit of cut silver. I don't think they have a chance of...
The first I saw this was more like this...
Wasn't too long after that I saw this....
Two pieces in one day!
Yep....I think I'm already catching on to this Max! :)
I was a busy pup but I was feeling no pain!
Something wrapped in reflective tape. :dontknow: But, we'll get back to this...
Keeping in mind that I'm still in my learning curve with this new Max and that I'm going back over some deep ground that I've been over many times with the Pro. I'm pretty pleased with the results so far.
Not a lot of finds but the tiny sizes and the depths are impressing me. Even that teeny...
Found this yesterday. The front isn't much help.
But, in person, on the back,
You can make out "GEORGE COGGILL" and part of the word "EXTRA". The top looks like a fleur-de-lis.
Buttons are not my forté.
All comments are welcome!
Soooooo.....I *finally* did it, I finally upgraded. I went with an AT-MAX. I'm familiar with Garretts and figured the learning curve wouldn't be much. Already, I'm pretty impressed by this machine. Look at these tiny finds I got today! I know I can't see much of anything on them. But they're so...
Not a whole lot of finds, but all in all, an interesting day with a couple surprises.
This was the star of my day. Poor old thing's had a really tough life! You have to see it in person to tell but its an 1883. Been a long time since I've found one of these! Sure was a welcome sight amongst...
Was sposed to just be a short, recreational walk. I got, uhhhh, a lil busy.
That....in 3.5 hours!
And...as I was OTWBTTC, an iron patch turned up. With these two bullets.
At least I now have a starting point for next time. :)
BTB, does finding the third ring the next time out, count? For...
Felt like going for a walk today. Lasted four and a half hours!
Had two rings and going for the hat trick. Then....the law showed up.
The tiny truck is an interesting find too!
Anyhoo....thanks for peeking!
Something to be said for just a plain, old, interesting, nice walk on a nice day.
There's just plain too much strife in this world I find me in nowadays!
Bit of a heart stop. The gold on this thing was just soooo shiny! Glinting from the sunlight. Fun!
Bit of a...
Only walked for about 3.5 hours but I felt like I'd finally had a "normal" hunt.
The kind of hunt that has so many different targets that it was interesting the whole time.
Lately, the walks have all been kind of ....boring.
The ring is something I haven't found in about 25 years! Oh, I've...
I went for a walk at a construction site today. But before I even left my house, I saw this:
And .....uh....um....er....ah...it was along my own front sidewalk. Leading to my car. :tongue3:
Anyhoo...I only walked an hour or so. Nothing at the site but I stopped by a school on the way home...
Just a short jaunt around a field today. Some indications of age. But not much in quantity.
A cow tag, a teeny tiny flat button, (complete with age old threads), a couple coins, an award pin and a whad-I-find.
You guys tell me.
I wanna say.....flashlight?
The lil hook at the top? Was...
Not much today.
Did get one loud, large signal that read as 90 in all directions. Funny thing is, I had just asked my current partner for just such a hit. Wasn't but a few minutes and boom!
I was a bit excited but felt the signal was too big. (I wasn't convinced)
And....I was right...
I was at a favorite school for my walk today.
Been there lots of times. As I'm walking I noticed someone coming across the field. I thought, uh oh....here it comes.
As he drew closer I recognized him as the director of activities for the school's summer playground program. I was figuring my...
Went for a short walk today. Really didn't find much but the way the day ended made it rather interesting.
Just a couple clad coins for most of the day. The ground was dry, rocky and hard. Wore me out!
I decided I had enough so I turned along this road and headed for the car and home.
Took a chance, 90 degrees in the shade, went for a walk anyway. :dontknow:
Managed about 2 hours in the heat. Found about the same rate as my first hourly wage. :dontknow:
I thought I had a silver but......
At least I tried.
Thanks for peeking!
Don't get me wrong. Summer *is* my season! I get thru winter just looking forward to days like today. 95 degrees......in the shade!!
I did do some shadow hopping today. Didn't find a lot but the interesting thing is that I *still* find! Even when I just hunt the shadows! Lol!
Here's the take...
