At Pro shoots down 12 inches for a coin
People say that the at pro only finds coins at 6-8 inches ' Wrong here's a penny at 12 inches

I rarely am in areas where coins would be that deep, but I believe it. Ive had good coin hits pretty deep, but I dont think 12 inches yet. Its been very dry here though. I have found beaver tails very deep though, but I believe aluminum rings up more strongly.

Some of these reports of coins found at extreme depths are coins that fell from the side of the hole. The AT PRO does not PP right dead on like zero motion PP detectors.
But a lot depends on what coil your using and the ground conditions whether its wet or not. I just have to wonder how a recent cent got down 12 inches. Newbies always seem to exaggerate the depth. I did too I guess 40 years ago.

I'm not sure mine will do a penny at 12 inches in air. Guess I will have to give it a try.

Mine, with stock coil air tested 9" (honest and measured type inches) on a clad quarter. That is enought digging for me!
Has found me some silver where I'd already been with a smaller coil.....pinpoint is not as good, but depth is sometimes what it takes to eek out the last few coins from a worked over site.

Here are the setting pretty basic , mind you we just had 4 inches of rain in saginaw MI ground was super soft

Having moist ground is a big plus! That's still a deep find! Was it a wheatie?

Mine air tests a quarter at 12 inches and a penny at 11.

Hey, sandman. The AT Pro, in pinpoint mode, IS zero motion. Have you tried it with a concentric coil? Might wanna put a little more time in with the machine so you know what you're talking about or don't post.

I' d be thoroughly disappointed to dig down 12 inches just to find a 1978 penny, excuse me, cent.

It was not my intention to dig for a cent, was to see what was down that far and it turned out to be a penny. People were saying that their detectors would not find coins at depths greater than 6 inches, this was to show them the facts.
