I simply bought nails that closely matched those I initially encountered almost 26 years ago. In that bag with the nails and plastic ties was a US Indian Head One Cent coin, similar to the one I initially found that created the Nail Board Performance Test with the 4 Iron Nails. This is a testing example I put every detector through with different size and type search coils. Quite a few good detector for 'average' urban Coin Hunting are fine for 'average' Coin & Jewelry Hunting environments .... but fall short on performance when taken into some dense Iron Nail and other ferrous-contaminated conditions.

The NBPT is a great way to sort the better Relic Hunting units for Iron debris, from the models that are OK for the average Hobbyist after urban Coins and such with minimal annoying trash. I like to have a few different makes and models around for different applications, but all of my 'get serious' detector/coil set-ups are near perfect performers on the Nail Board.

I hope you enjoy using it, and yes, now your comparisons will be done on a 'standard' level of comparison.

Best of success with your detector picks and the sites you hunt.
