Actually this field has given up at least another 4 cut halves and probably half a dozen hammered in the past few years. I wouldn`t call it prolific because sometimes if I go on it I can go for a few outings and it`ll not give up much at all, but !! my little eye caught sight of the numerous Mole hills that were abundant on it today, so I headed for them. This proved to be a good decision ,the moles had been busy tunneling and turning the soil over underground which is a wonderful thing if there are any deep hammered around. These lovely little critters are so helpful and If I see mole hills I always make a beeline for them and look all around their little hills.This field has to my knowledge never been ploughed so finds can be deep . That`s why I love it when I see the little critters have been at work, anyway luckily for me it paid off looking around their burrowing areas ,that were visible. The Equinox was the same as my last one superb at what it does, and I didn`t dig one bit of Iron. I heard plenty of it though but never had to dig any .
That was a cracking haul mate, I bet you were chuffed to bits!

So I take it you're back using a Nox again? What happened to the Anfibio?

It never felt like a `short` session Paul, In fact it felt like I`d done 4 hours as I was heading back . It was quite steep terrain for starters and the Pasture was full of thick clumps of grass so the digging was laborious. I could have done with some nice and easy ploughed & rolled instead :lol:

Well any hammereds always welcome and raises your spirits a lot.

Well everyone keeps saying about the amount of coins but "11 " in not exactly a lot when you think about it . It probably worked out to around 1 every ten or eleven minutes . The cut halves were only shallow so not much digging with them ..Well when I compare it to when I used to go out detecting way back in the 70`s& 80`s. It was nothing unusual to come back with a pocket full of coins either side my hip . In those days I used to just stick them in my trouser pockets so It didn`t cross my mind that I had found many yesterday . The field I went to has in the past produced on a few occasion so I knew that it wasn`t devoid of any . I know they are there its just finding them is the hard bit :lol: Conditions were pretty good, the soil was moist (you know when you get a wet knee)and not bone dry and of course my luck was in thank Gawd . But I have been to this field before and have not had much so its all down to the conditions & your luck on the day I think .
Yes I have got another Equinox . I always liked the Equinox but sold it at a low time of a combination of not using it for various reasons, and a low ebb of deciding to jack in detecting which tends to happen with me now n then :D
But Nothing wrong with the Anfibio its a good detector. Its just after having the Anfibio as can happen, I realised I preferred the Equinox so I just decided now is the time for another .

I think its fair to assume we all have good sessions and bad sessions its just I tend to have more bad sessions than good :lol: So when I do have a good session its a bit overwhelming and your in shock for most of the day afterwards .I think next day it becomes more relevant and real. :D Probably next time I go out it`ll be lead ,flattened coke - cans and buttons :lol:

Funnily enough I`ve just said that to Bruce :lol: :lol: I had to start laying some edging stones along the front path , you know the ones about 3ft long by 6" deep in my Garden and I only did about a third of what needs doing and I threw the towel in I`d had enough .. :lol:

Thanks for the kind words to put me at ease :lol: I think I can say without doubt I`m goin through the grinder at the moment.
