Took a Walk with the EQ800

September 07, 2018 06:40PM
Thursday I was hunting a newer park with the EQ800 just spending some time digging some deeper clad. It makes good practice. I had the 800 in Park 1 using 5 tones, 11" coil, sensitivity at 20. A high reading of 34-35 caused me to stop in my tracks. Circling the target, it was a consistent but weak 34-35. Switching over to Park 2 gave a little cleaner signal but with the same ID.

I cut a plug and removed a bunch of moist soil, Checked. Nothing. Removed more soil, checked. At 9", the target was still in the bottom of the hole. That's the depth of my Garrett Pinpointer and then some. I was thinking I had found a brass fitting of a sprinkler pipe of something similar and was about to fill it all back in. But, I popped a little more dirt up and dropped it on my ground cloth and immediately caught the glint of the reeded edge of a big coin. grinning smiley

My unexpected surprise is a 1941-D Walking Liberty Half. Not expected in this newer park. A few weeks previous, I turned up a silver Roosevelt Dime and took it as just a lucky coincidence among all the clad from that and other visits. Maybe not.

It was certainly a pleasant surprise. Been a little while since I turned up a Walker.
