A Late Fall Day Of Detecting

Recommended Posts

A great day to detect for me.
Temps in the 50s full sunshine little to no wind.

Been on the crossbow trail as of late busting deer with my new Ravin crossbow.

Today it was time to get back on the detecting trail.

Detector setups used- Deus HF elliptical and round HF coil and the Rutus wearing 11" dd coil.

I have had a goal or a mission for over 5 years.
This was to find a whole reale coin in my detecting proving ground sites.

Well today I finally accomplished.

Not with the detector I thought I would accomplish with either, rather the mighty Rutus, instead of Deus,

Other finds include a pair of cuff links, I think an old toasty nickel. It reads 12-12 on CTX and its diameter matches a clad nickel.

All the detector and coil combos today did well.

I tried to give equal time to each setup.

The cuff links were found with round HF coil.
Deus didn't like them either plus they were not deep.
Checked them for ferrous component, magnet says totally nonferrous,
No iron tonally noted around them either.

I did check all targets discovered with Deus usIng either the round HF coil and they elliptical.
I compared 14.4khz to 28.8 khz after finding what I thought was a nonferrous find.
Each and every time 28.8 kHz gave a better signal and also a signal from more angular sweeping approach.

Elliptical coil though when comparing the 2 freqs, was closer together tonally vs the targets I compared after being found with round HF coil.

The mighty Rutus.
What can I say about it.?

For a detector wearing an 11" dd coil, IMO for as well as it separates and its depth it is I think rated tops for digging nonferrous yet dodging ferrous objects.
One thing to note though with Rutus.
Go easy on the gain, too much will compromise the audio.

One great detector, did find one of the flat buttons pictured as well.
I hadn't run Rutus since late July since I loaned it out.
Easy to get back in the saddle with though.

All items in pic are totally nonferrous.

According to my loop and eyes the reale is dated 1784.

A little closer look at the very thin silver coin.

It is hard enough to find 1800’s coins - 1700’s is amazing! Congratulations!!
