Struggling to ID this, and struggling to try and take clear photos.

Found about 4” down in rotted stubble. Equinox 800 using Searcher Power Program. TID came up as 7.

Yes, that made me think PF. With so many tiny shotties and pellets on my main field I may have to think about my digging conservatism.

I dug a shotshell primer yesterday that came up as a 12, the farthing was a 7, and the cut quarter I dug a while ago was an 8.
I read somewhere (or maybe saw it on youtube/facebook) that tiny silver can be as low as a 5, so I tend to dig the low numbers as well as the better ones. The Equinox is certainly good at finding stuff so small that my pinpointer (Nokta) struggles to find it.

I’ve just been reading a thread on facebook discussing Equinox TIDs

People have found,
Gold ring at 6.
Sceat at 6.
Gold chains and ear-ring at 2.
Small silver hammered as low as 3.
Roman bronzes 1 to 20.

My wife was told by someone in our club that they have had gold at 1.

I think if the signal is solid it’s prudent to dig anything that is not a minus. Yes there will be more trash dug, but I’d rather dig some trash than miss a piece of gold or another hammered.

Lovely find. :D

Gold seems to come in almost anywhere up to 23 and i even had a chain which came in around 0 to -1. If you are detecting in All Metal (the horseshoe button) as you go deeper beyond the reach of the TID and sound ID the number and sound gradually lower anyway. Long ago I has a very deep siliqua which gave an awful signal. Although I would advise digging everything but that isn't always possible so you just have to make the call on site. ::g
