Hello Rick,

Looks like you landed a 1929 wheat penny right out of the gates...if my eyes see it correctly. Great start! Note how the VDI/tone will differ between the eaten up zinc penny from the 90s vs. the copper penny from the depression.

And yes, that wonderful pile of rusted debris, old knob/tube, can slaw, and rivets! Get used to those:-) If you aren't digging them, you aren't going to get all the goods! Over time you'll figure out how to avoid digging some of it....but it takes years to really know your machine and be confident enough in your judgement to start passing over items w/o leaving much good behind!

Isn't a day I don't fill my pouch up w/ bent nails, brass fittings, can slaw, etc.

Enjoy it!

Zincoln

Thanks Zincoln,

That penny is actually a 1989, really hard to read it. I think I’ll carry a small magnifier or loop with me to help read the hard ones.
