Looks like you’re getting good results so far with the new machine - I’m paying close attention

“Defiance” tag looks interesting, too. Obviously a fairly local connection...any ideas there?
As far as the tag goes. I looked up defiance carriage and found a small article on a carriage and buggy company in that particular town.

ACE 400 / Equinox 600

oldest coin to date 1773 4 Maravedies

Beautiful Indian Head! It must have been something to pull that out amongst the iron targets, and especially at that depth. That NOX must be a darned good detector.

Cool finds. Once you really start to click with the equinox the silver should start showing up a lot more regular

Do you happen to remember what the VDI number rang up as for the coin? I've been working an extremely nail-infested (and modern trash infested) 1850s house yard and I've been having trouble picking out "the good stuff" so I've just been digging pretty much everything.
