    WTB a Stock 11" DD Minelab Coil

    Gus If you are still looking for the coil I have one with some very light scratches on the skid plate I will let it go for $55.00 Shipping included. Thanks, Bill
  2. Last week while we were out camping in northern Nevada, My two boy's and I decided to go metal detecting around some old hunting camps, I didn't expect to find much of anything out in the area but decided to give it a try. I found a few clad coins, one 1956 wheat penny, and a bunch of bullets. At one of the sites that I detected I found a nice gold toned ST. Christopher Medal. The best find that I came across was along one of the roads that I had seen an old dump site. I decided to try my luck around the dump, I didn't find anything at the dump, but I detected my way back to the road and I found an amazing little 14k gold pendant with 22 small Diamonds and an 1851 Liberty Head gold dollar in it.

    Coin Help?

    I reciently found what I believe is a Nickel that is a cool looking mistake. What I am wondering is this coin worth anything or is it just a cool coin to look at. Thanks, Bill

    Saturday's Hunt

    From my research Betty O'Neal was a small mining camp that went off and on from 1881 and 1932, peaking in 1922. Most of the miners lived in battle mountain about 4 miles away. My guess is that the token was from the company store. Thanks, Bill

    Saturday's Hunt

    Saturday I went out for a morning hunt, within the first few minutes I found a clad 1974 penney, I thought this would be a good day hunting. There was a lot of iron trash and bullets in the area I worked the area over fairly fast since it was a very big area that I have hunted only a couple of times before. About an hour of hunting went buy and I got a good strong signal of 28, so I decided to investigate what it was, and I found this very nice Nevada Trade Token that has "BETTY O'NEAL one one side of it and GOOD FOR 12 1/2 ¢ IN TRADE" on the other side of the coin. A little later in the day the only other coin that I found was a 1941 Wheat penny. Thanks Bill
  8. Nice gold Gus, I can't wait until Wrestling season is over so I can get a Weekend and go out and try my luck. Bill

    Prospecting Trip To Oregon

    Hey Gus, I am glad to see that somebody had some luck on the Oregon Trip. I sure had a lot of fun even though I did not find anything. Bill
