So…. I usually don’t post but today I feel like I need to. So I purchased a Nox 800 back in March (have about 30 hrs on it) and have had some luck (wheats, couple Indians, and a couple buffaloes), but silver had been eluding me. Well last week I found my first silver, a 1905 micro o barber dime. Talk about a rush when that popped out of the ground!
Anyway, after speaking to a close friend, he tells me that a house on his parents property was built in 1795 and that I should hunt it. Wasn’t going to argue. So today after work I spent about two hours hunting and didnt even make a dent in the area that needs covered. Found a few wheats
And my 2nd and 3rd silvers.
1918 merc and a 1837 seated liberty.
I also found the key and the button.
The button has some writing on the back and appears to read “orange coloxx gilt”. Can’t quite make all of it out.

Tesoro compadre, which can find needles, but looking for something with a bigger coil/detects deeper, waterproof salt/fresh user friendly.
