    Day 3

    Day 3 and wow! I found my first coins! I hunted in my front yard again, this time along the public sidewalk. Three pennies, a dime and a nickel. I also found a Los Angeles token, a bicycle bell and a hose sprinkler head.

    Agreed. I'm pretty positive my yard is virgin property from a metal detecting perspective, so I will eventually be scanning every square inch of it.

    That is a neat token. Your officially hooked. I have been using the 600 for a couple months and am just starting to figure some stuff out. I purposely have hunted really trashy places that have been hit alot to see what I could squeak out. Its been alot of fun and challenging.

    Day 4. Again from the front yard. Trash stuff on the right. A golden elephant (inscribed with "Thailand"). A ring with a heart shape on the front and inscribed with "Sterling" on the inside (Sterling Silver?). A tiny buckle.

    Well, I think it's more I'm just digging everything up, and being patient. I'm still learning the detector. I find I'm listening more to the tones than trying to interpret the VID numbers. I do have it in 3 tone mode, which helps keep the chatter down.

    After you dig a nail recheck the plug and hole before moving on . I have found many good targets with five or six nails mixed in . If you have a pin pointer check the plug and hole with it also . You could have moved the good item from the original position the detector found it in . Remove all metal before moving on .The nox separates really well . Set a coin and nail side by side and play with how much of the nail covering the coin can still be heard and from what angels . It only gets better with time . I am still waiting to dig . Melt already .

    Day 6

    More finds from my front yard. Highlights are another ring and 8 coins (2 quarters, 1 dime, 5 pennies). Frankly, I'm surprised I'm finding so much stuff in the front yard since it isn't that big.
