With all this Equinox hype (and I am considering) I still LOVE my CTX too.

I'll may buy an E800 ( I just coined that acronym thank you!) after my next CTX ring find...

That's a nice set of finds! That crusty crucifix is special.

I found (3) with the CTX, but they all had a pendant

To be fair, my PI didn't see the chains unless the pendant was attached. Hmmm

Very nice. Good job. Looks like you were hitting some old and crusty stuff. Was the bangle just plated?

Yeah, just plated, well, unplated at this point. There was a 1946 Jefferson in the pile of crust too. I had more good targets than bad.

I'm a little jealous of seeing all those EQ's finding all those goodies too!
The ground here is just starting to finally thaw.
I'm staring to consider putting in an order on an EQ8 too,
but I still believe in my CTX BAZOOKA
