Default More Nox 15” Coil Goodies

Still finding stuff in my “hunted out” spots! lol. Found 10 wheaties, a first year 1913 Buff and first year 1916-S Merc. It may not seem like much but I have absolutely hammered this spot. Most of these were super deep or had other junk around them. I was running Park 1, sens 23, tracking ground balance, recovery at 4 & 5, iron bias at 2. I’m pretty impressed with this coil to say the least! Thanks for looking!

Nice hunt! I've been using the 6 inch coil exclusively in curbstrips lately. Its posts like yours that has me contemplating that 15 inch coil and giving my old hammered parks a go. There is something very satisfying about sniffing out some of those harder, deep targets. Thanks for posting!

Thanks! Yeah it’s worth a shot... I have been over this spot numerous times even with the 17” coil on the Ctx.

Thanks! I need to find some new spots! I might try to get some permissions or do some curb stripping...

Nice! Is it more depth or better coverage with the 15” you think?

Testify! That is a nice assortment; even better, knowing they have eluded detection for so long. Getting a first year buff and merc in the same hunt is quite an accomplishment!

Nice finds Tom Question, how difficult was it in pinpointing these deep coins with the 15 inch coil?
