Found a throw-down H5

Recommended Posts

Not intending to be disrespectful of chondrites but I have been looking for a small piece to use as a throw-down so I could see how my Minelab 800 sounds off when it is over one.  Today while in a little antique shop, I got the chance to visit with Blaine Reed for a few minutes.  In t alking with him, he said he had a few pieces on consignment there.  I was immediately taken by this little Gao thinking it would be perfect for a throw-down being a H5.  Don't worry, I will take the best of care of the little stony but it should work to let me know what my detector reads over a chondrite.

I ran the 800 over my Gao.  It came up as a -9,  Couldn't get much of a signal more than 3 inches above it.  Without the all metal on, nothing.  I switched it to Gold 1 and 2 and that is where it sounds off the best.  On park, it barely buzzed sort of like a hot rock.  Guess I will have to resurrect my old Gold Bug II.  The earphone jack is messed up on it and the plastic bolt for the coil has gone missing.  : (
