A lot of things can affect those readings, also.
$1 coins have been found lower in foil, $20 way up there in the quarter to half or even silver dollar range, all the others can be different too.
White's opinion on where they might show up.



"What if doing the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about?”
F70, F2, Compadre, Mojave, Judge2 - 2017....Clad, 15 silver targets including a freaking Barber quarter, a beautiful walker and 4 V nickels...
Plus other cool stuff.

Most of us realize Revier, that nothing is gospel in this hobby. Those VDI numbers are numbers reflected by another F 75. Pretty good starting point, I would think. HH jim tn

Of course most of us realize that, the OP might not, however.
Great starting point, for maybe air testing.
In the dirt things might change.

VDI is in general a guide

And it varies in locations because of mineral, depth, item position, moisture and other factors.
Mainly, its just taking more time to just dig questionable signals. Guaranteed, the trash to treasure ratio will be high, but treasure will appear.

If your looking for gold, get ready to dig a lot. I personally don't have the patience for all that digging but some people do and eventually they usually fine gold. Your percentage go up went you've got a good history on the location like you were talking about so that might get me motivated.
