  A decent topic about silent EMI....
Posted by: TheHunterGT - Yesterday, 01:15 PM - Forum: General Metal Detecting Talk - No Replies

This is worth a read....not as "ground breaking" as all of his gushing followers make it out to be...and I don't consider it "advanced training" at all.   

However, it is decent outside the box thinking.  Maybe even a bit of OCD....   

I do disagree with his decision to move on because of depth....however, he does live in Florida where depth "matters"....as his soil is basically inert.   Very similar to Calabash Digger's soil.  If he air tests 12 inches...you will hit 12 inches in his dirt basically.   So his decision is his own there.  

The stuff about EMI is pretty cool though.   I have seen my Patriot test at 13-14 inches and then barely 10 inches in another spot...chatter free.  So it makes sense.

  Found my first IHP and more
Posted by: FunGus - Yesterday, 12:10 AM - Forum: Coins - Replies (4)

I was able to make it back to the long gone country school and the corn had been picked on the remaining school grounds.

Detecting around corn stubble is a bear! I had the Patriot cranked way up so I could sweep high enough to clear all the stalk trash. and there was two inches of frost in the ground. Game On.

Found my share of junk and melted bits around where the school had burned, but then there were sweet spots that must have been where kids had played and dropped things.
 
Finally found the Indian Head Penny 1906 and nice and green. Another 1910 V nickel ,and a 1920 wheat penny.

The little monogram bit I'm guessing was a tie tack, missing it's pin was just the most solid 23 ID and a real kick to find something Fancy.

That big old hunk of Iron is the brace-hinge that held the seat bottom of a old fashioned school desk .

I did work the new to me F19 for awhile and found the cross and some shotgun brass with it.

Really loving this machine,great coin-shooter,got roughly 70-80 hrs on it. I see in other forums,the pin-point function does not work well. Mine hasn't worked very good either,but I may have found a work-around. In disc 2,its VCO,same as the pin point. I just listen for the highest tone,and watch the depth gauge. Works great! Im sure others know this,but maybe not. Hope this helps.

Along with this 48 wheetie, I am posting for review and information on this vintage watch fob.

The Fob material appears to be copper. Was it shiney like a penny when new?
I don't think it was plated. Maybe it had an enamel paint on it. No markings. Check out the back. I have not seen a Fob like this one before. Did this slip into a big button?
Can anyone guess on the age?
Thanks in advanced.

I've watched the video manual on the Tek-Point and I understand the retune function. But will it work like my Garrett Carrot where you can progressively lower the sensitivity to get right on top of a target ?

  Croatal bell in a snowy field
Posted by: JConis - 12-05-2018, 08:06 PM - Forum: Relics - Replies (9)

A beautiful Iowa day, 34 degrees, sun shining, no wind. Perfect afternoon for an hour long field hunt.
I dug a few pieces of junk, then I got a signal that sounded like a deep IHP. I dug 7" and a beautiful little bell pooped outta the dirt.

   

 After cleaning it up, it's in awesome shape with a No. 3 stamped on the bottom. Best part about it is it's whole without a scratch on it, and the pea is still in there and has the most beautiful bell sound I've ever herd.

   

When my daughter herd it ringing she wanted to put it on our Christmas tree. 

   

Thanks for looking this may be my last hunt but I won't quit until I have to.   HH

Has anyone tried it who has both?  I have been thinking about one of these machines in the future.  I love my 4” coils.
