    IHP?

    What kind of VDI do you get on the IHP with the equinox?

    ihps can be a jumpy beast on ANY machine I have used. Sure those perfect condition shallow ones just grab right ahold and make your machine sing. but the deep ones, the corroded ones, or the ones on edge can jump all over the place. So far on the nox I have dug them anywhere from 16 to 23. also depends on how your machine is set up what vdi you would get.

    I have found only one (1903) since I got my EQ800 in early February. It rang in a solid 21, about the same as a zincoln.

    17-20 so far for me. Different years were made from different alloys. According to the mint the Indian Head penny was introduced in 1859 with a composition of 88% copper and 12% nickel and a diameter of 19 mm and a weight of 4.67 grams. In 1864 the composition was changed to 95% copper and 5% tin with a reduced weight of 3.11 grams.

    Average 18-19 for me; deeper ones will sometimes bounce in ID a bit lower, and then -- as HighVDI said -- sometimes in some "sectors" as you rotate around and "Minelab wiggle" over the center of the target, you get some up-averaging into the upper 20s mixed in. Overall though, I'd say I hit them with an "average" VDI of around 18-19.

    Good point, on the Fatties, pa-dirt_nc-sand, and 67GTA. Those will definitely read lower, on the VDI scale. The ones I am referring to, averaging 18-19, are the newer ones from 1864 onward...

    Mine fall in the 18 - 19 range. Depends on the conditions like the others said.
