Especially interesting as we wonder how an individual hunts and the patience and determination level, and also wonder how the FORS CoRe and little 'OOR' coil will do compared with all the other brands and models and coil sizes we will see in use.

In the end, however, it boils down to the settings used, the sweep speed and coil presentation, and the amount of dedicated hunt-time an individual puts in. Then combine that with a wee bit of 'Get-Lucky' and we will have a winner.

The 'winner' in your competition just needs to happen across a US coin we it an older date. All the old denominations will have a comparable TID response once recovered so it will just be all luck for a date to be the oldest. I would have found it more interesting to compare the results of the individual and detector/coil challenge if it was determined by who found the most US Coins and Trade Tokens if you each hunted the same number of days.

Coin and most Tokens are going to be roundish in shape, include an interesting size range and differences in conductivity. I would have set a cut-off date such as anything 1939 and older to cover the Depression Era.

Anyway, your challenge will be interesting to follow, and I wish you both the best of success.
