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.

    • Sweet! I can see how thst works on the points really well! Thanks Tom! It looks like your process is a lot faster than hers. I'm interested in the differences in the solution, the heat and the voltage. I guess with more acid and heat the more copper is held in suspension so the article gets plated faster? I see a lot of agitation in the tank too.  Your finish looks really good. Bright and level. There are obviously a lot of differences in the processes.    
    • I found one that seems like a fairly good deal from Midwest Refineries. "We pay 95% of the amount of pure gold contained in your order and you receive whatever the spot price is, on the day and time your order is completed and the metal brokered. We have no minimum amounts, however please don’t send in one ring, as it’s not cost effective for us to handle tiny miniscule orders. Regards, Gary Midwest Refineries
    • Hello. I am new here. My name is David Austin. And am here to find new recipes.
    • Well after seeing Bobs last post about his scorpion/wood that was copper plated.......it got me thinking.    This is probably more of a post to pass on to your plating friend to help her out. So.............. I took one of my seed pods that looks like a reptile, and decided to plate it.   First thing I did was spray it with black lacquer a couple of times to seal it up.  After that I put on robbers. What robbers do is keep the points from building up.  I use thin safety wire just because that is what im used to. Any wire will work.  After that I painted it with conductive paint. I used the really expensive stuff on this. Im working on a cheaper paint right now......waiting for the components to come in. As you can see, the wire builds up, but the point you are protecting do not.   This part was in copper for about 2 hours.  All in all im happy with it!  Points are nice and sharp and all areas plated. When I heat up the nickel tank, I will plate the beak and feet.  Will post some more pics when it is done. Tom H.
    • I have had a metal detector off and on for years but haven't really consistently used them (never for gold). Now I want to start, even though it is HOT out. I finally took the leap and purchased a Minelab Gold Monster 1000. So far I have found it pretty easy to use (after watching a number of YouTube videos). Nugget Shooter videos have made it pretty clear what needs to be done to be up and running in prett short order. I have only been in my yard to practice ground balancing and checking the detector on coins and other metal objects. No hot rocks to deal with here so that will be something to learn when I visit other sites. Now I will look for someone to go out with to really learn how to use it. Thinking about some APA claims up near Wickenburg. Glad to be a member of the group. Bill
