COINS, TREASURE, and RELICS

This forum is dedicated to the hunting of coins and relics with a metal detector.


Coin and Relic Forum Rules

First off let me welcome you to the Nugget-Shooter Coin and relic Forum,

There are just a few rules here and yup I do enforce them and keep an eye on things as best I can. Here are a few guidelines I'd like you to follow if you will be participating here.

Vulgar and abusive language is not welcome here! Heck a cuss word to get a point across is not so bad, but I think you know what I mean.

I will not host public arguments and pissing matches between individuals here so please just don't do it. When it happens the post most times will simply vanish into cyber space.

Political posts are not permitted here and surly you can find other forums that host those discussions, I don't think anyone cares if you are Conservative or Liberal when we are out hunting gold nuggets.

You may not use this forum to advertise any other dealer, store, or product without written permission by owner at any time. Used items are allowed in the classified section.

This forum is not responsible for anything said by it's members at any time. This is a public forum and will remain so and although I can and will occasionally zap "bad content" I don't do it often and so far have never banned a person. Also opinions expressed here do not always represent the opinion of the forum's owner!

Guests are welcome to browse the forum and use the information provided by registered members, but you can not post yourself until you are a registered member.

That is pretty much it my fellow Nugget Shooters so enjoy the forum, keep it about metal detecting for coin and relic related subjects, and play nice.

    • Sometimes you cant put the genie back in the bottle or the pin back in the grenade. You just gotta grit your teeth and ride it out. Things will be O.K. Don't worry about it. We have this discussion whenever someone tries to tell us meteorites cause fires. It is our second favorite thing to do besides telling people to rub rocks on their toilet tank lid.
    • Hand strung, modern, commercially available beads. Most likely not Native American. Good luck!
    • Happy Birthday Kat...Maybe your ol' man will take you on a bike ride... Cheers, Unc
    • How do I close thread? I really didn't mean to start anything, I'm new.
    • WillM, You need to show respect for experience or I am not going to talk to you.  I worked for NASA/JSC when the Challenger failed. I worked at the site that builds and tests the components for the shuttle as well as defense hardware. We put lots of stuff in space and examined what came down. I actually was on the Challenger recovery team and found many pounds of the debris. I was involved in the CAIB report and hunted the strewn field for three months. Challenger did not burn up in the atmosphere. The Shuttle failed because the heat shield tiles came off from spots on the vehicle. The vehicle did not get hot. When the tiles came off and exposed the structure it blew a hole in it. The thin aeroframe ablated because the heat shields stripped off. Some of the pieces that were exposed to friction upon reentry had burned surfaces. But the interior was unchanged. Even aluminum parts had burned skin but did not change shape. Titanium parts that had burned skin on one side and no bluing at the other end. There were parts spread out from Colorado to Texas and none showed heating at the core of the mass. Only on the surface. Most were undamaged by heat as the craft decelerated almost instantly upon coming apart. Exactly like a meteorite does. Friction is much different than radiant or conductive heat. And stones are only exposed to friction for a few seconds. This heats only the very surface and the hot material strips away quickly. There is no radiant heat and very little chance for conductive heat to penetrate. As a result the stone remains cool even if the surface is being stripped away. It is the same principal that cools a sawblade. The heat is carried away with the wood chips and the blade tips stay cool. The physics of re-entry is well known. How the heat shield tiles work and the reason meteorites don't get hot is relatively simple. I realize that you don't understand it and you don't have the basic knowledge to truly rationalize why this happens. But you are going to have to accept the fact that is how it works. We bring space vehicles out of orbit every day and have nearly a century of observations to back up the math.  Your snotty question shows you lack respect for knowledge and experience. You need to figure out that you are WAY over your head here. If you want me to discuss these topics with you then you will need to pose your questions with respect. Otherwise you can get your education "organically". Bob
