After many fruitless months of MDing....

Over a 3 day span I found my first Indian Head penny and my first wedding gold wedding band. The last 4 or 5 months have been fairly fruitless till now using wither my Tesoro Vaq or the 705 which is my main machine. The junk ring was found on a junior high football field about 3 inches down, and I could tell it was junk as it was all corroded. A few minutes later, right before I was going to all it a day after only finding $0.85 in clad in about 2 hours I got a signal I thought was another nickel, so I dug it. As soon as I saw the color I knew what it was. It is a 14K gold wedding band weighing just under 6g. The Indian Head (1885) was found near an old house at a local university. It was one or two inches down. The last 6 months have been really frustrating as I have found some new areas. I invited a friend to hunt with me at one and I found clad while he pulled up an 1823 large cent! I hunted another house from the early 1900's and found only clad. These two find were the best of the whole year for me.

Happy holidays,
Andy from Hillsborough

Excellent! Congratulations!
I understand your frustration. We all go through dry spells, it's part of the game. That's why we call it "hunting", because nothing is certain.
