Park Hunt 01/15/2016

I took advantage of a break in the weather and hit the local park. We had 3 hours between storms to make it count. I admit it was nice to get out and enjoy a bit of sun, but it did not last long. The rain is on its way again.

I hit the park with the RADAR. It was especially bad today, I set the T2 'Classic' at Sensitivity 40, Discrim 70 and Tones 1 to control the noise. NEL sharpshooter coil; I tried the 11" coil for a bit and got a few copper pennies with it but the EMI was a bit much for it. The NEL went back on, still bad but manageable.

I got a pocket full of clad and copper pennies. Oldest penny was a 1962, a bunch of 1965 quarters and dimes (darn, lol). I got a little Cloisonne pin. I think it is gold plated as it is pretty shiny on the back, but rang up around zinc/copper on the machine. It was about 5 inches down and was pretty bent. I straightened it up some and unfortunately some of the enamel is missing. Still it will look nice in a display. There are no markings to date it.

My Dad came along and was introduced to EMI the hard way. He got some clad and some bits of copper. He is liking his Eurotek Pro.

It was nice to get out, much better than sitting at home! A few hours is all I can do at this park, the EMI is mentally fatiguing after a while. Still it is close and a nice park for short hunts.
