Smaller-size Iron junk was generally ignored due to the circuitry design and operating frequencies, such as most Iron nails, Iron Screws, and even those crown-type Bottle Caps. Oh, we did find some ferrous-based junk, like those Bottle Openers and even some Bottle Caps, but that was due to the fact they were a man-made, man-shaped object that created problems with the EMF.

Monte, if the old T-R ignored nails, why not use them today in the ghost towns? (I have a 6000di w/T-R mode!)

Well, let me share this photo link, and please, click on it and take a look: 'Welcome to Nails' by 'glabelle'
I want to give a 'Thank You' to George for this photo contribution, that I believe is from recent years on one of our Welcome-to-Hunt Outings. I'm sure he'll correct me if I'm wrong.)

You are correct. That was from a spot in Tobar, Nevada. There were worse spots too!

BTW, this is why I believe there are plenty of coins left - under nails. My theory is that the townspeople dropped coins while the town was active. Later others came in dismantled it and/or burned it down - leaving the nails on top!
