Default First coin with the Nox 600

I have spent a total of 10 hours getting used to my new Nox 600. I have been going back over areas that are heavily nail infested that I used my Ace 400 on in the past. I have found a wide variety of small items .

I have found a high brass 12-gauge shell a small silver plated ring a headless lead toy Horseman and typical field items. The Indian head penny was deeper than my pinpointer about 9 inches with lots of nails around it. This is an item that my Ace 400 was not able to find.

So far I like the light weight of the detector and seems to be well balanced. I also like the height and angle of the screen makes it easier on my neck and does not mess with my bifocal.

Looking forward to see what else it can find that my other detector has missed.

This is the second one that I have found both are two different sizes. It is not a broken piece I was told that it has to do with horse tack. But no clear answer.

Nice digs, Dan! Interesting report on the 9Ē IHP surrounded by nails. Iím pretty certain my current machine wouldnít hit that coin either - I havenít dug any coin deeper than 8Ē with it to date, let alone one polluted with iron. Looks like youíre getting good results so far with the new machine - Iím paying close attention

ďDefianceĒ tag looks interesting, too. Obviously a fairly local connection...any ideas there?

I would tell you it is a type of hoof pick. Common farrier tool but there are literally hundreds of different designs.

Thanks that's what I am hoping for. I just told the boss and I'm taking two days vacation Monday and Tuesday. That will give me a four-day weekend
