Equinox 800 - A Beginner Metal Detectorist Shows Off Recent Finds

Equinox 800 - A Beginner Metal Detectorist Shows Off Recent Finds

A recent customer Dana L. just sent us a little message with some very cool finds. Dana says this about the recent finds:

"I finally stepped up and bought my first metal detector from High Plains, and Equinox 800. I purchased one not to get rich but, for the pure enjoyment and thrill of the hunt that has been with me since childhood. High Plains treated me very well, took all the time needed to help me make the right choice. Thank you guys!! I’ve only been able to get out a few times lately and every hunt has been what I consider a success, little bits of treasure found with each hunt. As you can see from my photo of last nights hunt, there are plenty of ‘interesting’ finds to be found. I never know what I’ll find next but it sure is fun. Thank you High Plains Prospectors for everything!"

Thanks for your submission Dana!  We will send you a coupon for $5 to our store for your submission!
Mine Lab Equinox 800 Metal Detector Does Not Stop Producing Good Finds for Kansas City Metal Detectorist.  Nor does he.

Mine Lab Equinox 800 Metal Detector Does Not Stop Producing Good Finds for Kansas City Metal Detectorist. Nor does he.

Mike H. from Kansas has been a very busy metal detectorist .  Just before Christmas of this year he had been doubling down.  Here is Mike's most recent story about his metal detector finds:

"I had to share my latest finds as I cannot believe the luck I've had. A few days before Christmas, I went to a new permission in a field. My second target was a 1940 Mercury dime. I then proceeded to find several more modern coins until I found a 1947 wheat cent. As I wondered if there was any older coins to be found I could not believe what I dug shortly after. I dug my second 2-cent piece! it was a 1864 and my second ever in just a few weeks! A little later I found an 1897 Indian Head. Overall I found several interesting items in what turned out to be an excellent permission. And I still have lots of area to cover there. Looking forward to getting back out there."

Thanks again for submitting your story!  We love to hear stories of our customers' success!

Metal Detector Finds Coins in "Hunted Out" Kansas Park - Silver and More!

Metal Detector Finds Coins in "Hunted Out" Kansas Park - Silver and More!

Mike H. from Waverly, KS recently sent in some very good finds.  He has this to say about his experience:

"Bought my new Minelab Equinox 800 from High Plains Prospectors on Tuesday 12-7-21 (moved up from a Whites MXT All Pro) Took it out on it's first hunt on Thursday the 9th for a couple hours on a field hunt and I managed to get a wheat cent. On Friday I decided to do, as some suggested, and go to a park to get used to the machine. It did not take me long. I found five wheat cents ( 1926, 1942 D, 1952 D, 1956 D, and a 19??) I also scored two Indian Head cents (1893 and 1897). A 1892 Liberty Head (Barber) dime AND two Liberty Head "V" nickels (1897 and 1901)! Also a $1.75 in clad. I have hunted this park several times in the past only to find clad coins with some wheat cents. I got to say very happy with my purchase!"
