    First time out.

    After trying to find time the past few years to start this hobby, I finally got out
    for the first time this past Friday. I went to Patterson Park for about 3 hours.
    I didn't really know what I was doing, and forgot to switch to pinpoint, it was
    a lot of work and I have a lot to learn. I did have fun though. The detector is
    a Sovereign GT.

    Good deal. I've been to Patterson the last 2 times out and haven't turned up anything that good. In fact, I haven't even pulled a wheatie out of there. I think I need to try a different area of the park. That 1808 cent is really nice. How deep was it? Are all the other coins pictured clad?

    All clad but 2 wheats. The East India coin was about 5" deep. I'm going
    to try to go back next week, this time with my detector setup right, and
    with a little more knowledge.

    mazarelo,
    Hey I live in Baltimore County and would love to hit Patterson park with you. I have a buddy who I go out with now and we have been talking aabout going there to do some MD'ing. Great finds for you first time out. I dont have alot of experience either so our levels would not be too far off. I tellyou what though, I have been doing Md'ing for about 2 years now and it has become very addicting. great fun though.

    when can you get out? Right now, I'm only able to get out one day during the week, no weekends
    at the moment. I have the week of the 17th off, maybe we could meet up at the park.

    Any idea what that East India token is? That is a pretty cool find. The date looks to be 1808?
