I never heard of that detector - so I had to look it up.
It looks pretty cool and by yoiur find it went very deep. Did it give you a solid tone or iffy signal?

I had a very good ID. The tone wasn't perfect by any means but it was there.
I've dug some very deep wheat backs in this park with it. But my deepest find ever was a buffalo nickel in my back yard, which is rather sandy, that was almost as deep as from my fingertip to my elbow. Just not quite that deep.
I'd put it between 14 and 15 inches. I was so flabberghasted with I dug it out. I never gave up on digging it. I knew I heard a good signal so kept digging and putting the pinpointer down the hole. Finally around 12ish inches
with the Garrett pinpointer at the highest setting, I was getting a good hit. Dug down the rest of the way and popped it out. Here is a picture of it. The clasp was a little deeper.

I have to say - at that depth I would have given up.

Glad you kept at it and got a cool reward too.

I looked up this Detector, looks like it doesn't have depth on pinpoint? How do you know how deep to dig? I am thinking about getting one, but that's a game changer.
