Checked out this new spot but wasn’t expecting this

Looking at old maps and aerials, I did not see any indication of structures. Curiosity got the best of me and decided to check out the area anyway. Glad I did. Snagged a rosey and an 1838 Large Cent! The large cent provided a nice soft, high tone with a target ID of 31. Thanks for looking.
Detector used: Equinox 800
GB -0
50 tones
F2 -0
Recovery 4
Sensitivity - 23

Casual field drops or was there iron on the spot? I have a few "hunch" sites as well. Well done on the snags!

The large cent was at the base of a very old and dead standing tree. I didn’t hear any iron on that very spot but 2-3 feet away I hit on very large pieces of iron. So large, I lifted my coil a foot off the ground and could still clearly detect them. I hunted the area for several more hours (around and near the tree) with zero luck.

Great Find in that Large Cent. I have never pulled a US large cent yet.
Thank you. In viewing the incredible finds you make, a large cent is definitely coming to you!

I believe when one plays and also takes the time to research that gut hunches are as accurate as photos.
