Well on the Nox I particularly like to see a sweet 15. Of my last 5 hammereds three came in at 15 and one at 16. Another came in at 12 but it was folded, but when straightened was 15. Unfortunately some buttons also come in at 15 too! :-?

9 Nine is an amazing number, 2x9 =18
1+8 = 9
4x9 = 36
3+6 = 9
going a bit further 999 x 9 = 8991
8 + 9 + 9 + 1 = 27
2+7 = 9
:lol: :lol:
Bloody amazing number, only one, sorry i meant nine that does it, well you did ask :lol:

78 on the Garrett is normally a coin but can also be other items.
Always a good diggable signal.
Have found Georgian Halfpennies.
When i found Roman coins before lockdown, after the first 3, every time i was getting a 78 in a certain area knew it was a Roman before digging. That happened 6 successive times before something else appeared.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

On my old faithful Garret 250 the ring pull icon turned out mostly to be hammered coins . With my lack of experience at the time I was ignoring that signal until one day curiosity got the better of me , dug it and out popped a hammered coin . Taught me a lesson .
With the Q40 , 70-75 was usually very good , once again sometimes hammered coins .

Deus hot 69-71 is pretty much guaranteed a nice little hammered beauty of silver loveliness. I don’t need to look anymore - that sound makes my mouth automatically smile. I grin as I dig :Party:

On a more serious note lol I love 52 on my whites V3, 52 is gold hammered but sometimes its not, but every time it hits 52 the old heart skips a beat, my 1st gold hammered came in at 52, then a mate found one with his DFX and i asked him what it came in at, he said he hadnt noticed, then scanned it and hey ho 52 :Party:

Taking that on a little: the 9x table's a doddle. Say you want 5 x 9: take 1 from the 5 to give you 4; now add the number you need to add to make 9 (5) and put them together. Answer: 45 That works up to 10 x 9, after which you take off 2 and add whatever's needed to make 18 (16 x 9 = 144). That works up to 20 x 9, after which you take off 3 and add whatever's needed to make up 27. Etc etc etc.

A-anyway, Figgis, and back in the room...

I've dug some right stinkers of signals (some as low as mid-40s) which have produced hammered, which is why I only look at the numbers (if I remember to) so I can have a guess as to the potential target.

An alternative way is to just multiply by 10 and take away.
16 x 9 = ?
Eg. 16 x 10 = 160, -16 = 144.
The Nox just goes up to 40, but can do 9 x 4, a whopping great big silver! :lol:

On the Nox NOT 18 :thumbdown:

When I first got the Nox I had several lovely clear signals giving a TID of 18 that I could not locate or reproduce.

Turns out my spade gives an 18 if swung to far forwards :pulling hair out:

At least I now know what the cause is if I get an unrepeatable 18.

I was taught that too! I can do brilliant mental arithmetic with those tricks and my dad’s training in his shop where a calculator or till to add up was NOT allowed. Hilarious when at 14 you’d get the older ladies not believing you could add 10 or 15 items up in your head and insisted the calculator was used and when you handed them the paper calculator read out that exactly matched the original figure. They could be seen still checking it as they walked away :lol:

It's quite concerning that many of the younger generation cannot even do simple sums without a calculator! :shock:

Actually the ones below 20 can :D They have to master mental arithmetic now before a calculator is allowed. There’s a lost generation (or two?) aged between 20 and 50 ish though that grew up without learning times tables by heart and just using a calculator which is very sad really :(
