New Guy flying the F19

Howdy everyone. I've had the f19 about 2 weeks and have about 20hours with it.
I'd like to think I'm doing something right. Here are a couple of images.

First is a collective of multiple hunts on my property.
Ironic that I reload ammo and love to drink beer, so what do I find, mostly ammo components and a church key.
The musket is .44cal with white oxidation. Found 'bout 8in deep, looks like the oldest possible relic I have found to date.
A few of the shotty shells were manufactured around 1920.
Lastly, my first coin was a copper Lincoln. The lucky penny is now on my keychain.

Second image is the first hunt at a playground which yielded mostly trash and a little clad.
I did the inevitable, being my first park and dug all things.
My arms fell off after 6hours, but I had cleaned up dozens and dozens of tabs, can slaw, foil, tops, etc.
Anyway, I thought you more experienced hunters might enjoy the fervor and rigor of a fellow's first serious hunt.

...oh I ran the f19 on full gain, disc at 20 , v notch 40, volume 14.

Congrats on your F19 grantham!

Your off to a good start. My first coin, many years ago, was a 1982 penny also, a couple ft. from the backdoor of my house. Funny how such an insignificant find monetarily, has big value memory wise. I remember it like it was yesterday.

I have been mulling over for some time, the possibility of getting a G2+, the F19's cousin from teknetics. They're solid performers!

Good hunting with your new F19!

Thanks, I wasn't even sure it was a penny at first, I was thinking it was another button or washer.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the F19, learning to understand it's duck quacks. I think it is surprisingly intuitive, even for a beginner.

Just wanted to follow up. There is a button in the lower left corner of the first image of my first post. Turns out the button is a tombac button, 1700's.
This is pretty exciting considering this was from my first hunt on my property. My first colonial find and the oldest relic that I have found.
