    15 meters, but not by me, the group that I was with didn't believe me that there was no reaction and insisted in digging on.

    Up to my armpits, for a foxhole!

    I found a broken E-tool and a few small pickets on the way down! (We were only allowed to dig where there was previously a foxhole...)

    Re: What is the deepest you've dug?

    I dug this 1906 S.F. vehicle license plate at about 12 inches. I'm pretty sure it was that deep. Digging tool is about 12 inches long and the hole went all that way up to the end of the handle when I saw the plate in the bottom of the hole. It is made out of brass or copper, it gave a perfect coin signal.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    About 22 feet on a desolute island; found a layer of calcite, not gold--but what an adventure!

    Re: What is the deepest you've dug?

    When I was around 12 I used to find old wells and crawl in them and dig out the bottles. Never ever dug one all the way out.
