Re: an observation with the Coin check on the Shadow

Here is what little I know about how metal detectors work. Off the top of my head, The electro magnetic field created from the control box to the search coil creates waves of E.M.F. that will penetrate deep into both mediums of air and soil. This circular attraction behavior of what is called EDDY CURRENTS on the surface when encountering metal objects. A circular metal object creates a perfect electrical connection, therefore the metal detectors exhibits a liking of round and ring shaped metal targets.

Round manmade metal objects make the least electrical resistance to the circular shaped EDDY CURRENTS that follow circular paths on the surface of the target

I don't want to sound too much like an electrical engineer, I have read a bunch on the subject Big Thanks to George Payne .
