    1788 Vermont Colonial Copper

    I’m sure this is a 1788 Vermont Copper that I found on Sunday but I’m not sure of the variety. See my post in the Today’s Finds forum. Any ideas?

    1788 Vermont Copper!

    A new detecting friend invited me to hunt a home site permission he has not too far from my house in central Illinois where he found some really cool old coins in the last few weeks. An 1818 large cent and another dateless Matron large cent. Also an awesome 1795 Washington Token! Unfortunately...

    Need A Bullet ID

    Down the road a mile is a former town site that has a huge amount of lead targets. I haven’t found anything like the one I posted here but could possibly the next time I’m there.

    Need A Bullet ID

    I found it in a farm field in central Illinois where a church was supposedly located in 1912. Couldn’t find any evidence of the church and this was basically the only old thing I found.

    Need A Bullet ID

    I hunted four hours pioneering two new permissions with my newbie cousin who just got his 800 and found only trash and one cool looking bullet. Wasn’t very impressive for the newbie lol. The good news is we think we now have over 2000 acres of new area to hunt. so now the research really...

    Deep coins

    When you say “sound like iron” what do you mean? I hunt mainly fields as well and if I get a signal to shut off the threshold tone I call it iron and move on. If there is a coin mixed in it will have a short tone path that can be hard to figure out. And it’s especially hard when hunting a...

    Goodies From New Permissions

    A few goodies from recent permissions. I found the bottom part to an old lamp yesterday that sounded like a half or dollar that measured 2 feet down. Deepest one I have found so far with the 800. Amazingly it was a fairly strong signal. It’s a big decorative copper piece about the size of a...

    Deep coins

    Actually that’s not true. Coins at the edge of the detectors capabilities with read all over the map. The one thing they won’t do is go negative. So when you hit those jumpy iffy barely recognizable signals, dig! I just dug my deepest quarter and it was just like that. Once I dug the hole the...

    Deep Quarter

    This makes me rethink every place I have hunted.

    Deep Quarter

    I took the 15” coil to the old field I have been hunting for the last week yesterday afternoon and picked up where I left off from the last hunt. Unfortunately I didn’t find any coins UNTIL I went back to “DIME LAND” where I found the three back to back Dimes two different times last week. Since...

    Logging finds

    I use an Apache Open Office 4 spreadsheet. Dates in the left column. Types of coins and finds in the top row. Been using it for years. Works great.
