Okay, how about just the particulars such as detector / coil / settings .. and just a rough description of where you went Relic Hunting? Not the specific site, but the 'type' of site and prevailing conditions (other than cold and windy).

Finding the little $1 gold coin is a bit tougher than many might think. Of course, 'site selection' is important.

I went to an old homestead site, the area is overgrown with sage brush and very trashy. I started out using the Deus with the 9" HF coil running the deep program. The buckle in the photo was found with the Deus as well as many of the shotgun shells. I used the Deus for about an hour of the 3 hour hunt.

The wind was blowing so hard I was having trouble hearing the signals with my back phones so I decided to switch to the Equinox. I didn't have my 6" coil with me so I used it with the 11" coil running Park 1, 50 tones, recovery 4, horse shoe on. I got this signal under a sage brush that was jumping around from -7 to 9, the number changed with every pass of the coil. I dug a hole about 6 inches deep and the coin was now in the dirt pile reading 11-12. Got the pin pointer out and once located, I could see the rim of the coin. When I went back over the hole, I got both an iron signal above and to the side, so I'm surprised I didn't pass it up. It really was a terrible signal and I almost didn't dig it.
