Question for thoseThat Know

On Vacation last week and I hunted a fresh water beach for the 4th year straight.
The beach has produced lots of modern jewelry in the past including gold in the past. it is a popular beach.
The beach and area served in the 1860's as a fresh water port and had cribbing and Docks for Schooners loading and unloading material.

This year I used the Mohave set on Nickel (9 o'clock) Discrimination and did not find anything of value. The prior day there very rainy and the sand was wetter than normal.
I used the Mohave the previous day in a park and picked up 25 clad coins in an hour with no trouble.

What I was picking up on was rusty steel in odd shapes(Not extremely large) and a few broken cast Iron sewer pipe pieces- hit hard and were deep. Turning the dial up to coin area still produced a signal most of the time.

So I thought it was unusual to get that much steel.

Was it the moisture enhancing the halo affect?

You just hit a bad spot. If you have a tone ID machine, go back in low discrimination and I'll guarantee you'll hear a symphony of tones!
