Weekend Outing

April 08, 2019 12:08PM avatar
Had an opportunity to get out for a long drive over the weekend and ended up at the little town I've been hunting. Took the 800 with me. The ground had dried up significantly since my last visit. But the EMI is still there from the power lines.

The 800 was set for Park 1, 5 tones & 'U', Sensitivity between 21 and 25, Iron Bias - 2, Recovery 6-7, 11" coil.

It was another case of difficult targets. First oldie was out in the ball field, just a squeak that caused me to stop as I was working along. I worked my way around the target and could get the audio from most directions. Depth was 4-5 segments, Visual ID was bouncing in the high teens, but there was some small iron with it. I pinpointed and rolled back a 6" deep plug. Found a Chinese Cash Coin off center in the hole, almost straight up and down at 7". A little iron something was in the plug.

The rest of the targets were similar. All difficult with the exception of 2 zinc pennies and a clad quarter.

The token is a very good co-op token. The name of the business on the obverse and the GF 5ยข in Merchandise on the reverse. Unfortunately, it is octagonal and very thin and is missing 1 edge where the stamping around the perimeter thinned the material. I was relieved to see it wasn't recent. It came up just below an IHC at 16-17-18, depending on what direction I swept from. Again, the target was at an angle to the surface.

I picked up a Mercury dime, a 1938-D, a few wheaties '16, '19-S, '45-S, and a small .925 sterling pendant with chain as well as the standard trash and little copper washers.

It was a long drive, but very nice to get out and find a few keepers.

j.t., trying to figure out different detectors is difficult because there is no 'norm' in how we define 'trash.'
