This Walker Could've Been A Rusted Nail....

Recommended Posts


Nice find for sure.  The lower then normal ID for that half was probably because it was on edge.

I had that happen on other detectors and I think the ground conditions have a lot to do with it especially if the moisture content is different than the other times you hit it. I would guess wet conditions and a lot of rust can cause some masking or alter the signal. I tend to listen to the signals more than rely on the vdi though the vdi is handy I think you can hear a trashy signal vs a subtle clean signal and if not sure just dig it anyways. I'm not too proud to pluck a pull tab or 2.

Not yet.. What started off as a mild winter in January turned in to record snows in February, so I’m just now starting up again.. Rain and soggy ground is making it tough. Probably be May before I get any serious time in detecting..

Good to see others scoring some silver on the forum.

Thanks for chiming in everyone.

Digs that are somewhat out-of-the-box from its norm are worth a post for educational purposes. This was one of them due to its tone, TID and position of coin.

I'd say all of your digs are worth a post if you care to post them!

Very nice save my friend and there are more reasons than most of us realize why certain targets do not read as we would expect.  When you don't know because you never dug it?  You can't learn what you don't find.

      Today I had to go to the dentist, which I totally hate, and by the time I finally got back home I didn't have much time before company was to arrive.
      So I had about 25 minutes to kill and thought I would get rid of more trash from the back yard, so I can put in a test garden.
      First hole I dug looked like a freeze plug from the 1920's. Throw it away!
      Second hole I dug up a quarter down about 6 inches. KEEPER!!!
      Third hole I dug down about 5 inches and I think it came off a bicycle or something. Throw it away!
      Forth hole I dug I had to go down about 6 inches and found a penny. KEEPER!!!!!!!!
      Did I forget to mention that it is a 1889 Indian Head Penny!!!
      Then my company shows up and asks what am I so excited about as I run the penny under the faucet to get the mud off it.
      I simply dried it off and laid it on the table and he almost fell over. Now he wants to buy a metal detector and go with me.
      He asks where did I find the penny and I told him in the back yard. For 2 hours he kept asking me where did I go to find the penny and I kept telling him in the back yard.
      Before he left I showed him the hole that I found it in and then I filled it back in and only then he believed me.
      I knew that I had bought an old church, but the old grounds keeper who is a neighbor told me that it was the new church that we are now living in.
      So there has been 2 churches on this property plus an old house that was torn down over the past 125 years.
      I am going to have to check this place out more carefully every week and get rid of all the trash from the yard. Off to buy more grass seed just in case.
      I finally broke the 1900 mark and I couldn't be more excited.
      I wish to thank GB_Amateur for all his help and the settings that he shared with a novice like me. I would also like to thank this forum for all the help and input you have given me.

      I have been digging nothing but trash most of the summer and modern clad coins. Been a frustrating season. But I finally hit a small honey pot of an area.
      We have a historic park and residence thats been used for almost 200 years. and its several acres. I know that literally hundreds of detectorists have been combing this park for decades, they say theres nothing left there.
      Well, I beg to differ. I have started probing into the least likely areas that most detectorists wouldn't venture into and it paid off the first day. I spent an hour digging stuff just along a 50 foot strip from the car, one modern coin, one really old pull tab etc every 2 feet until I flipped one plug to find 4 coins! 1907 Barber quarter, 1923 Mercury dime, a buffalo nickel(no date), and a 1919 wheatie. continued to dig clad quarters and pennys every 2 feet then a diamond ring, says 18k in the band. Then to top it off dug up this old token from a billiards room, did some  research and it was a members only billiards room that ended in the 1920's in town.
      This one 50 foot strip of grass wore me out lol but I guarantee I will be back next weekend. Even the modern clad was all from the 60's and 70's so thats promising. And some might disagree but as long as I'm digging super old 1960's pull tabs that is still promising to me this area isn't over hunted yet.

      Took my AT Pro out in the water and didn't have too much so I hit an area near where I found some flying eagles and came across these.
      IH is 1881, the nickel is a shield 1866. Will hit that area more this fall when the undergrowth is down more, same with the water as the weeds were too thick to swing.

      Was a rough week at work and needed to unwind. Have been metal detecting when I could since my vehicle accident in April.
      Today me and my wife went to a place I secured permission to earlier this year. Not been able to get there until today. The grass was grown up about 3 inches here and I broke out my Tekentics T2 factory coil. It SUCKED. Skipped right over the 1963 quarter in the photo below. I could not believe it when I dug this one. That silver was beautiful. The Cors Shrew is no joke. This little coil has made me very happy. Went on to find a 1939 mercury dime and 1951 rosie silver dime! This is the most silver I've found in the last 16 yrs. The only other silver I found was back in 2003 and it was a single worn mercury dime. I also found a couple buttons, a 1944 or 1945 nickel and a 1926 wheat penny.
      I love my Teknetics T2SE. It's an amazing piece of equipment. With that Cors coil, it's a beast. Worth every penny.

      Found this one in between some tree roots, surprised it has the detail it has. The rough edge I was hoping it was a pine tree but still cool find.

      On Thursday I went to search for more coins in a local park and in just 15 minutes I came across this Indian Head penny.
      I would like to know the best way to clean this coin so I may have it placed in a frame and hang it on a wall.
      This is the oldest coin that I have found to date, and it even beat out a 1924 dime that I found within 15 feet of where I found this penny.
      It had a lot of mud on it when I dug it up so I ran some water on it and found the date.
      This penny was wedged between 2 roots standing on edge and about 8 inches down. I had a ID number of 19 in one direction and a 20 in another direction so I decided to dig it up.
      I used the settings that another member showed me a week earlier when we met in Casey, IL. and I am sorry for not knowing the settings off the top of my head to put them in here.
      Please if someone knows a way to clean this up I would greatly appreciate your knowledge.
      I guess I am starting to get the hang of this Equinox 800 and I can only hope that this is just the beginning of a long and wonderful relationship of metal detecting.
