Newbie Finds First Quarter!

Yay! I found my first non-penny coin. I read the today's finds forum and saw all the finds near the baseball diamond, so I headed to the park this morning. I saw the plastic ring from a water bottle and the cellophane wrapper and straw from a juice box and figured people had been standing there for awhile and swiped. The Tracker IV found the quarter under the leaves of a weed. Minimal digging. The beep had a little "zzz" sound to it like a bug zapper. I will be paying more attention to that sound from now on.

Happy Hunting!

Sounds like you're in tone mode with the discrimination too high. In tone mode, turn it all the way to the left-then take a nickel and keep passing it back and forth under the coil (without wearing any metal jewelry) while rotating the disc control to the right. You will go from a high to mixed to low tone. When you reach a pure low tone you're set! Now the clad will give a high tone, most old-style pulltabs a mixed tone, and nickels a low tone. An effective notch system. Just remember that some rings fall in the tab mixed tone.

No stopping you now. This was my Dad's favorite and once you get used to hearing your targets and trusting your detector, you'll be a terror. Don't set your discrimination to high in tot lots, just above iron and dig everything. Sure you'll hit a lot of tabs, but you never know, that gold ring is there waiting for you.
