1 hr - No Coins. Now What ?

If you need something to do to keep busy, I'd grab your favorite detector with favorite small coil and choose a small area, like along the front walkway up to the house, and clean it out of conductive targets; including the bottle caps. Stay within 2-3" of either side of the walkway and hunt it from the front sidewalk to the steps up to the front door.

Do this for the sidewalk in front of the house if there is one.

If there is a path from the street / sidewalk to the front door, like a short cut from the front corner of the property to the front steps, hunt that.

If there is a side driveway and a path to the front or back door hunt that.

If there is a large shade tree in the yard, front or back, I'd hunt under and around that.

If there is a clothes line in the back yard, I'd hunt under that.

Folks sitting on the front porch, popping beer tops and flicking them over the rail into the front yard isn't where I would start.

You will quickly notice if the yard is original OR if it has been redone, by the type and depth of targets, color of the dirt, and so forth.

Good luck.
