Greetings from Arkansas USA

Post by ITguyx64 » Thu Mar 14, 2019 12:48 am

Hello all,

I stumbled on your forum while searching the www for information on Quest metal detectors. There doesn't seem to be much following for this particular brand here as opposed to the UK and other countries. Your Quest section of the forum alone has already been a valuable wealth of information for me. Having used exclusively Whites equipment in years past, I just ordered a Q40. I look forward to sharing my experience and finds with all of you as well as reading of the magnificent discoveries that I seen form many of your members.

Jim

Thanks all for the warm welcome. The Q40 showed up today and I've gotten it assembled and quickly tested everything. All seems in good working order. I'm pretty impressed with the build quality. Soon to hit the fields! :))

Welcome to the forum Jimbo ::g

Where you are, what are the most desirable coins your looking for , is there a certain coin group you Americans hope to find ?
Any pre-1965 coinage is more desirable than those following that year when the US mint switched to producing cladded coins. Pre 1965 were 90% silver by weight. Using our US quarter as an example, starting in 1965, quarters are copper and nickel clad. Much less precious metal in any type of our modern day coinage.

Up until 1933, gold coins were produced in various denominations but that came to a halt during the great depression. Our currency was backed by gold and in 1933, the govt made private possession of gold in any form illegal. This was, as I understand it, to prevent a run on the banks and citizens had to turn in their gold in exchange for paper currency and there severe criminal penalties for not doing so.

As with anywhere, finding a gold coin tops most other finds, although there are silver coins with unique characteristics, such as minting errors that are considered high value and are on par with finding gold.

I'm on the opposite side of the state, the flat boring side, to the southeast in the small town of Stuttgart. I know the Fort Smith area well as I travel over to that area to go fishing. Beautiful country over there, scenic and mountainous.
