Hi guys, well I took the plunge a couple of weeks ago and got myself a Nox..... Shocked Some of you know I have been loyal to the mighty Deus and with good reason as it has netted me some cracking finds over the years. I still have the Deus but at the moment it is having a well earned rest as its been so busy. I was going to get the Nox when it first come out but I was not prepared to wait the ridiculously long times on the pre orders, especially as other countries could get them, rant over.  Grin
This machine is quite simply awesome I have used it 3 times and feel I have had it for years, to say its DEEP is an understatement its, I have concentrated on one of my medieval pastures and I can honestly say it has found targets my Deus definitely missed it seems every signal is DEEP I have had Medieval penny's at 8-10 inches.... one Halfgroat came out at a measured 10 inches, can't ask for more so for the foreseeable future the Nox is attached to my right arm.
So this Groat of Henry V1 Pinecone Mascle London mint, ( unless I've got it wrong) was 12 inches approx it has a dark patina as this pasture field is on a floodplain by a small river and at the depth it came up from the black soil is wet.

Now the bronze figure I thought at first was a pipe tamper of late medieval date, but soon realised it had a hole for attachment, it is 5cm long and 2cm wide, it has traces of being gilded at some time. My feeling is it dates to 12th-13th century and could well be a Limoge figure although I have not been able to find a parallel as yet, the ones I have seen are of a different style, I would be interested to see what your thoughts are.....There you go Val a bit of research for you I know you come up with IDs  Kiss So did I mention how good the Nox is  Cheesy Oh yeah I did sorry. Any way I hope you like the finds, back on the pasture tomorrow for a 6hr search.... Wink

Nice finds - interesting figure too - looks quite ethnic, although I appreciate it isn't!

Interesting how silver finds near water usually come up that black - none of the stuff I find ever it, so it's usually pretty silvery Smiley

Glad you like the Nox - I did think of buying one, but,  like you couldn't be bothered to wait that long, so ended up with a secondhand CTX - mind you I'm quite tempted (despite being a confirmed Minelab user) by the ORX....

Cracking finds, like the figure and the detail on the hammered coin is quite amazing. Well done.

Well, what can I say ? Did I mention how good the NOX is ?  Grin
So you succumbed in the end Paul. It has the same effect on everyone who tries one (well nearly everyone) its so user friendly itís unbelievable and you havenít had it long enough to really tweek the settings. I assume you got the 800. Thereís better to come.
Now, down to your finds  Grin Thatís a first class Henry and I think the figure is off the bonnet of a car  Roll Eyes  Grin
Good timing actually. Iíve been really busy, busy, busy for weeks. Tired out in-between but I finally did the last little job today so now all finished. I havenít been out detecting for so long I think Iíll have to re-visit the Manual. Maybe not, I set it all up, exactly how I wanted it last time out so it should be turn on and go next time.
Iíll enjoy a few browsing sessions.
Is certainly a bit different. If you see one you wonít forget it.

First glance around confirms you could be on the right track. I did a search for Limoge bronze figurines and saw a couple of Christ with the same stylised facial features..also one of a Saint.
The round thing on the top of yours will be a ĎHaloí so could be either Christ or a Saint. It was obviously intended to be mounted on a staff.
Did you find it in the medi field by the church ?

Thanks Roland, been trying to find a paralell but no luck yet. As I still have the Deus no nead to get the Orx, I was going to get the HF coil for Deus and the new 11" but to be honest for the sake of a few more quid I settled on the Nox, at least now I can get back to beaches if I get time lol.  Wink

Well done Paul.  Exceptional finds once again.  Hell of an advertisement for the NOX.  You must be on commission!!!  After reading your post and knowing the quality and quantity of finds you uncover, I can imagine lots of forum readers robbing their piggy banks and dashing out to buy a NOX.!!  Brilliant finds.  Cheers.  Tom  (ps.  I'll buy your Deus.  Cheap of course) lol.

Hi Tom, Wish I was on commission lol...but honestly the Nox is a very user friendly machine and punches deep especially on pasture as I said. You know I also love the Deus, having both machines has all detecting searches covered, beach, pasture and plough.....Good luck to you guys... Wink

Yes Val, I waited long enough, I got the 800. I'm on a dig Sunday with Detectorists Investigation Group in Wiltshire, it's all Deus and Nox machines as you mite expect. Get out and post up finds Val  Wink

Thanks for your comment, yes I'm sure it's a halo I would guess a Saint ? And I think you are on the money as to it being mounted on a staff. Interestingly I found this only 20 metres from where I found the Limoge cross mount of St Mathew, it was enamelled as you may remember I posted it up last year or so. Definantly religious going ones in this field, now I wonder if there's a nice priestly gold ring or Gold Astel...lol.
