Rich, I understand and I understand.

Being in a more confined location for a while and not having easy access to things. Not my problem today but I do remember when it was.

I also understand testing the detector using your preferred start-up settings as that is exactly what I did with all of my units.

I did do two brief after-testing checks with a couple of different detectors or coil choices. I used a budget White's Treasure Pro with the standard 10" Double-D coil. At the start-up Coin & Jewelry program settings I could get a solid hit on the Test Stack #1 of 5-Silver Halves on top of 1-Silver Dollar, and I also got a clean audio response to Test Stack #2-5 with 5-Silver Dollars.

The other test was using the Nokta-Makro Anfibio Multi with the standard 11" Double D coil. It worked best at 5 kHz, and hit Test Stack #2-2 fine, but #2-3 was kind of broken and #2-4 and #2-5 both failed. The 7" Concentric coil handled the Test's well, especially at 5 kHz, OK at 14 kHz, and 20 kHz had a less stable VDI response but the audio report was OK.

It is interesting to note that the CoRe and Relic and Omega 8000 that were all using Double-D coils had the worst performance. All other makes and models, to include any with an internally preset GB, did especially well, including Test Stack #3, and all of them did so using a Concentric search coil from 5½" diameter up to 7" diameter from Fisher, Nokta-Makro, Teknetics, Tesoro and White's, so it wasn't isolated to only one or two brands.

There still is the one other factor to consider, and that is ....

On a bright note, it is going to be 2019 in just a little over 2 days and 1 hour so mentally be preparing for a great year of detecting, a little out-of-your-state trip in April, and a WTHO in May.

Will your detector BEEP if you swing over a Silver Coin Cache?

Is Recovery Rate directly related to this Problem ?

5 should work but 6 is what I use to match 6 coins in the Half & Dollar stack.
