Not at all bad for the first session with the Nox. I assume you like it :D

Hi Evan,
Yes. I'm really impressed with the Nox. Moving from my Garrett 250 to the Nox was a bit like when you first have a colour TV after many years of black and white only. I have a lot to learn because it is so sophisticated but this is a great start. I'm well chuffed.

Thanks Pete. Yes. I'm already reading up about hammered coins - I'm fascinated by how much is known about items created so long ago. You are right - I'm sure it can be addictive. :thumbsup:

The Nox is a great machine. I started with the Garrett 250, then the Makro Racer 2 and now have the Nox ,so know what a step up from the 250 the Nox is but give it a bit of time and it will soon become second nature.

If you have not already got a copy of Spinks "Coins of England and the United Kingdom" I very strongly recommend that you get one, it gives lifesize images of all the coins so is great for helping to get an ID and also has a reasonable amount of background information. There is a new version every year, but the changes are limited so get a version a year or two old as they can be picked up for only a few pounds.

Well done on your first and not last πŸ‘

I remember my first and still have it, along with others found over the years.

I'll never give them up, even though they rarely see daylight now πŸ˜†

Yes. I certainly hope it won't be my last - I certainly intend to keep it. :thumbsup:

That sounds like a great bit of advice. I'll look into getting hold of a copy. :thumbsup:
