Out recently with the Nexus MP, didn't get a lot but had an enjoyable time. the MP was working really well. I'm sure there will be hammered to found in this field, it just wasn't the right day for it. Maybe next time though.

At a rally in Scotland over the weekend. Hard detecting due to long stubble in all the fields except one (and that one didn't become available till Sun). Alas, no silver for me ......

Well done.

What were the ground conditions like, was there much iron around?

[/img]Moist ground, stubble. Lots oi iron and alloy. Signal for ring was clean non ferrous tone although cut off ether end, found between two lumps of iron about a 12 inch either side of ring. Luckily I dug it and was questionable at first.

The ring cleaned up.

Managed to get my first bit of yellow metal with my MP the other week. Not old, missing its stone and only 1.7g, but at least 14ct and my first g ring not off the beach, Spindal whorl also found at the same time.

Nice little buckle and Lizzy hammy sixpence. Any chance of a bigger picture of them?

Spent a few hours in a heavily wooded area on Sunday. Didn't find a lot, very surprised to find a length of lead pipe (that will boost my collection of lead weight some!) The splitters were interesting finds. All found with the Nexus MP, I knew the splitters were iron objects but they were large and I have a policy of digging large iron just in case its an iron pot of coins or large iron masking something decent or even a very nice iron artefact.

Nexus MP finds from last week. Nothing too exciting, but it found the spindle whorls and copper coins nicely. Here's looking forward to its first silver!

Was rather pleased with this shilling as within half a coil distance away was a chunk of iron approx. 4"x3/4"x1/2". The coin gave a good positive LED and the iron a good negative LED. At some stage the shilling must have been up against the iron as the coin is heavily iron stained.

Below is a photo of my finds with the first outing with the Nexus Ultima with its Dual 20" classic coil, which in fact measures 36"x 20". I was very surprised to find these coins down on the hard (gravel and stone) below the soil at between 10" & 12". I thought such a large coil would be blind to these coins at that depth.

Over the years this field has produced very little at all and I have been over it with a number of different machines including the CTX, Blisstool, Nautilus and GPX. So I was more than happy with my finds even though they are nothing in themselves.

This very large coil gives a signal that is very much larger than the target. That is the audio sound comes on and off over a large area of ground in comparison to the target size, on all the targets I dug, which admittedly was no deeper than approx. 12" Although I am pretty sure if I was to go over targets a lot deeper at two or three feet for example the audio of the target would reduce in size.

I'm very much looking forward to my next outing with this detector, I have to become more familiar with it and that will only come about by using it in the field. The vibes are all good and I know this Nexus Ultima is going to be a very good servant - I'm looking forward to a very rewarding year.

Found a silver spoon in Norway today with my Standard MP in a field that has been searched many times before. Looks like it has a funny face :)

The coin weighs in at 5.4g, non magnetic and where it has been scraped it is a good silver colour. The rust is surface and although I have rubbed off a little I tend to keep my coins as found.

Found with the new Nexus MP over the weekend. The dagger was in excess of 18" from the point where it was exposed to the top of the hole. Which means whilest detecting the coil was around 21" (54cm). There was never any doubt this was a very good target, it gave a loud clear signal with a powerful LED reading indicating non-ferrous. My initial thought was that the target was within the first 7". It took a while dig out because the ground was full of stones, even had to take my jacket off, I don't mind admitting it was hard work.

Settings: Sensitivity at 10 O'clock, All Metal Mode (which requires discrimination to be set to zero) in All Metal Mode the discrimination is via the LED. Volume on full, controlled by independent volume controls on ear-cups). Soft threshold, ground balanced.

I had to crop the photo but the blade does go to a point. The spindle whorls and Victorian 6d were also found yesterday.

Pre decimal and decimal copper coins plus Elizabeth 1958 two shillings and Henry III penny, plus a couple of bits and bobs, found on Sat. Terrible ground condition owing to constant rainfall, a very muddy day but the hammered made it all worth while. Found with the upgraded Nexus MP with 13" coil. Stout work by the MP in ground that most detectors if not all would be unable to perform anywhere near their best.

Managed out again for a few hours on the weekend with the updated Nexus MP. Again weather not very kind being drizzle on and off and ground very muddy. However, I like to get out swinging and hope for the best. Alas, it wasn't to be. A bag full of non-ferrous finds but nothing of real interest came up this time. About 70% of the finds being bits of lead, cow tubes, pull tabs, cans, foil etc. and of course the ground is full of iron making it more challenging. At the moment I am lifting out the larger iron signals to try and clear the ground but its going to be a long job but will get there in the end. Just hope something more interesting pops up on a regular basis to keep the enthusiasm up.... :))

@Filternozzle ,some interesting finds,will be out later today with the Nexus MP,new 13'' and 7'' coils have arrived as well,the depth from the 13'' coil is pretty amazing and as yet still not found its full depth potential :)) Its more the ground coverage that i am after more than anything and its doing exactly what i wanted it for.Depth and ground coverage.
