Thanks Raider, No markings but the acid test indicates 14K.

Thanks metal, Yes, it is a good candidate for the melt pile.

Thanks Slim, That's surprising given the amount of treasure you have found. I think I found 2 or 3 tent stakes but I don't remember the details.

Glad to see you are learning the Nox.
I had mine out yesterday found one dime and one bobbie pin.
than used the dual field found change 3 pieces of silver one junk ring and one 12.8 g plat. Sad to say I just can't figure out the nox. I think I should sell it.
Thank you Larry! The first few times I used it in the wet sand was so bad that I thought I'd only be using it in the fresh water. A couple of things that helped me was going to single tone and hunting in all metal. I also use "0" iron bias and continuous ground balance but I'm still tinkering with the settings to see what works well at our beaches!

Thanks GS, Yes, the color is so rich it makes my 14K wedding ring look like brass.

You didn't say what Karat that is. It looks high K to me. Gotta be at least 18K?
Congrats on the multi-ring hunt!
Thanks Foragist, This is the first detector I've had with TID numbers so the learning curve has been pretty steep. The bouncing numbers still confuse me. The other rings are all junk but still fun to find.

Thanks Jeff, I'm sending you all the positive vibes I can muster. Tomorrow might not be too bad with the decent surf and tides the last 2 days. Just got to find those pockets I think. GL&HH!

Very nice finds Compass. Congrats on the gold! The other gold find is learning that the Nox can do it. Best of luck!

Good news on the confidense in the Nox. NICE CAPTURE. I have been waiting 5 months and don't have one yet. I finally called aND was told it will be in last Tuesday. Guess what? No Nox. I'm fed up.
