    Thanks guys and welcome to the circus Cooper! Windshield is done! Well mostly....still need to sand off the sharp corners. That protective film is staying on there until it's ready for taxi tests.

    Wyoming Digger ... GENERALLY speaking using a larger coil will give more depth but have somewhat less sensitivity to smaller gold at that increased depth and be more prone to false signals from hot rocks. Careful and correct ground balancing technique is key to the Gold Monster. However that being said ... If you suspect larger gold at depth than by all means use the larger coil. Don't be afraid to experiment with the GM1000.

    Easy Peasy! Guess how many countries are represented in this pile of foreign coins that I have found in Coinstar machines this year. Closest guess - WITHOUT GOING OVER - wins. In the event of identical guesses, earliest posted guess wins. ONE guess per forum member. Contest open until Sunday, Sept. 8, 2019, @5pm EST. - Good Luck!

    I enlarged a couple of the photos in the article where one of the brothers was holding a metal detector where you could see the control box on one and and the other from the front it was a Garrett Ace 400. Here's the photos.

    I agree. You can come across finds like these whether it's in Great Britain or the European mainland. Some spectacular jewelry has been found as well. I'd like to know what brand of a metal detector he was using. Thanks for posting.

    I was curious what the orange was in the rocks interior. Found it in the Lake Havasu City , AZ area. Any info would be helpful.

    The most prominent orange mineral in Arizona is wulfenite. So I did a search around Lake Havasu City and found this particular mine. I'm not saying it's 100% wulfenite but the link below gave me an idea. https://www.mindat.org/locentry-857780.html

    What difference does it make if it's a one week old thread or a ten year old thread? A friend of mine had a bad experience with a brown recluse spider. Got it?

    Who didn't want to look like 'Charles Atlas? He was just a little skinny kid that the girls all ignored, but when that big brute kicked sand in his face he bought a 'Dynamic Tension' kit and changed his life forever. He kicked hat tough guys butt and lived happily ever after with all those good looking girls.

    I do remember! We used to subscribe to Popular Science, Popular Mechanics and Boys Life magazines. You read the articles once, maybe twice. Then you spent hours scanning the four or five pages at the back. It was a collage of different blocks of font and little black and white graphics. Kinda based on an old Sears and Roebuck catalog. Plans and kits for submarines, air boats, and hovercraft. Remington rifles, radio kits and garden seed businesses. Hypnosis, mind control, and x-ray glasses to see through girl's clothes. And metal locators. "Transistorized"! That meant they did not have big glowing vacuum tubes that got hot and smelled funny like the push button AM radio in your car. They were just those tiny transistor radios with a nine volt battery we used to carry. About half the size of a pack of cigarettes. They would let out an eerie electronic squeal if the crappy wire hoop got near a large metal object though. It was like some sort of black magic. A buddy of mine and his dad built a metal detector from an old military radio and a copper coil that worked pretty good. It was for a school science project. He could find coins in the schoolyard with it. They started with one of those radio kits in the back of Popular Science or Popular Mechanics. The first metal target I ever dug was located with that detector.

    There is a lot of political and economic uncertainty in the world today. I'm reading that a lot of people in foreign countries are already building up their purchases of gold and silver, for fear of uncertain times. Central Banks of foreign nations are also building up their inventory of gold. The Russian and Chinese governments have been purchasing gold hand over fist for many years now. What do they know that the average citizen doesn't? It will take a lot more time for the citizens of the USA to get their heads out of the sand and start purchasing their share. When this finally happens, physical gold will become scarcer and scarcer, then more and more people will begin to or try to buy it. The price will go into the stratosphere. Hedge fund managers are already encouraging it for portfolios. Personally, I am keeping my precious metals as a "rainy day" fund. When the crap hits the fan, I will be good. Remember this Golden Rule: " He who has the gold, makes the rules." Cheers,

    I have some good "inside info" that a buttload of cocaine is worth a lot of money. And rumor has it that there is a fellow that can get a couple kilos in there. He is a local folk hero. There is even a corrida about him. They call him "El Chile Relleno" The thought comes to mind that some cargo would diminish in value after a sweaty trip across the bridge. I hear the cocaine triples in value after that short butt ride. If I can make a dollar out of 15 cents by stuffing diamonds in my crack and doing the hundred yard dash you will see me in tennis shoes a lot more often than detecting boots. I tell people that my placer gold nuggets are worth more than finished gold. They are unique natural creations that can only be found with an incredible amount of time and effort. An ounce of finished gold is worth whatever the market says it is. It comes in a nice boring lump. Natural gold mined by some freak that spends too darn much time in the desert is rare stuff and a lot more valuable per ounce than specie. If a customer wants a genuine natural nugget like it came from the mountain they are going to have to pay more. I might start hauling my poke () back from the placer in my fanny and adding shipping charges to the price.
