    I have had the 39 a few times and thought i was digging a silver dollar. Turns out to be a rusty tin can.
    Now i practice on a few coins like the silver dollar and pinpoint that coin and you will see the smaller pinpoint area of the coin and a larger area will be iron trash.

    The story don't change. Guys are just trying to help and throw out possibilities.. I would be very skeptical about using a shovel in a park..

    When you get a really strong signal and it appears to be deep in most cases it's iron falsing or a can. Like others have said raise the coil and see if you still get a signal and if you do it's likely not silver or clad

    I don't detect for the stuff I find, I detect for the stuff I haven't found.

    If I didn't find it I hope you did.

    Most of my "huh?: signals like that wound up being a coin on edge on the side of the hole. Any deep iron I just went after and got.

    I also have had the problem with iron showing up in the 30's and not pinpointing correctly. I've found old rusty nails and large iron sometimes show up higher numbers and cant find them where i pinpointed.but i keep digging out further and it seem like the iron is pinpointing out further towards the edge of the coil. This is very rusted iron.
    But I have found three silver dimes near junk targets in a park I have detected before with no problems pinpointing
