I decided to buy a new detector - after research, and money not being an issue, I still went for the Nokta Makro Simplex +. It is light and fast, detects deep and is an amazing value. I move slightly East on my property, from the 1940's, 50's and 60's era area I have been making finds. I made a solid deep hit, used my Root Slayer shovel pulled out some iron trash, rechecked the hole and still had a solid silver signal. The result of the effort was a 1945 Standing Liberty Half.
