I don't know if I should post this here. I preferred when this forum was brand specific but brand WXXXXX seems to have left the building or vice versa. I hope this will be the place to continue posting about brand WXXXXX detectors and finds.

So anyway. I went back again to the same old place which yielded a 1920 large cent, a silver dime and a few relics. This time, no silver, no relics, some clad and much trash. My second target got me a large penny from the 19th century. I know that when I see the face of Queen Victoria, it's an oldie. I'm sure there are more great things to find there but the modern trash on top makes it difficult. For me that's half the fun. I've been asked before if the MX7 was good for Canadian clad and I would say yes. Apart from the steel core clad in the picture, I also found about a half dozen nickels and a dozen pennies some of which were the evil kind (not made of copper). On those coins, the MX7 ID will jump wildly like any other detector I have used but it will mainly stay in the MISC category. A steel core dime or quarter will almost never go into the iron range. These observations are with the concentric coils (950 and six shooter).

Active detectors and accessories: Fisher F19 LTD on Mars universal shaft, F19 on original shaft, Nokta Fors CoRe, Whites MX7, Makro and Nokta pointers. Killer B's and Jolly Rogers headphones and assorted coils.
Previous detectors in order of acquisition: Bounty Hunter Discovery, Fisher F44, Fisher F5, Omega 8000 V6, Minelab X-Terra 705

Great N/T

I know that while we might not get that much snow where I live in far Eastern Oregon, we will get down into those bitter cold temperatures that makes us shut-ins during the wintry months so I need to take advantage of a coming week pleasant sunny days and get out. I'm hoping to get access to a lot where they demolished a house a while back and I'm loaded up to work it if I get permission tomorrow. A friend lives a few doors north and her house was built in 1910, and a couple of other homes close by date from 1907 to 1912 so there's a chance I might pluck a few older-date coins myself.

My vehicle is loaded with a Nokta-Makro FORS CoRe, Teknetics Omega 8000, Tesoro Bandido II microMAX, a White's XLT for some open-area fringes and my MX-7 to let me cover the site well with a variety of proven performers in my Detector Outfit. That way I can have some fun, try to find some oldies like you did, and do a little 'Main Comparison Detecting Forum' field work. Honestly, I enjoy working some dedicated size and access places like this because I do work and re-work an area just to compare differences in audio and Discrimination performance behavior between different models and search coils. It's educational and I always like learning more.

Nothing like an 1800's coin with nice green patina. Good job
