    Talk me down from the ledge!!!

    I am pretty new to the Hobby only having had my Ace 250 for about two months. I have been out pretty frequently and I am Really enjoying it. I have found a fair amount of clad, one silver Mercury dime and some pretty cool relics. I have been reading the finds forum on here almost daily and it is about to make my head explode. I just want to find one Indian Head penny and every time I look at the finds forum sombody is finding multiple IH's, Barbers, Standing Liberty's and on and on. I know I probably just need to be patient and continue to increase my locations for hunting but I just really want to find the old stuff and I just keep finding the new. Our ground is dryer than a popcorn fart right now and I have been praying for rain as I have read that may help the ground conditions and I know it would make digging much better. Anyways just ranting. I know I am hooked so hopefully the good stuff will not always elude me. Thanks for reading and if you have any words of wisdom, speak up!!!!

    Re: Talk me down from the ledge!!!

    Well I am at 4 silver coins in 3 years and a few Indian heads and wheaties. I haven't been able to go out this year very much due to my health but there is light at the end of the tunnel finally. My 2 best coins are a 1876 shield nickle and a no date SLQ. Now I read a lot of posts on here where these 2 types of coins are still on a lot of peoples wish lists that have been detecting a lot longer then me. On the other hand I have yet to find a mercury dime. Researching places to hunt is your best bet, then you have to get your coil over the coins lol.

    For me it is still a rush digging a target and feeling the anticipation of finding an old coin (even when it turns out to be clad or trash). You either love this hobby or you don't, personally I can't wait to get better over the winter and start fresh next spring. Good luck and happy hunting,

    Re: Talk me down from the ledge!!!

    The thing you most want will usually be the most difficult to find.

    You're doing fine. It will happen. Just concentrate on sites that will produce the kinds of coins you want. It may take awhile, but persistence pays off.

    Just don't be in a rush. The metal detecting gods frown on impatience.

    I can see the headlines now.... "MD'r plunges to his death, breaking open a large earthen jar full of IH's".... Keep looking, looking, looking! (but don't rush headlong into it) TTC
    I can't change what happened yesterday. But today, I will work on a better tomorrow.

    That is so true. If you want old stuff you have to go to old places. Old house foundations in the woods are good. I remember wanting to get my first indian head. I now have three and they were all found around cellar holes. And they were all found with a 250 and a whole lot of patience. Cellar holes are full of iron junk and the ace has a hard time dealing with lots iron. Deepest was about four inches. Indians signal lower than a penny, btw. Took me about a year. Be patient and it will come.

    A better machine makes the location even less important.

    The 250 is a decent performer. Here's some of the goodies I have found with mine: http://forum.treasurenet.com/index.p...,339977.0.html A better machine will make it easier to find stuff. But, if the stuff is not there then it's just not there.

    Re: Talk me down from the ledge!!!

    It's that very feeling of "wanting that next great find" that drives most of us.

    I know it does me.

    I love to dig clad it pays and every once in a while a keeper jumps out of the ground and into my collection.

    Wait till you dig your first token then you'll start wanting more of those also.

    Smudge is right! I have found only four indians in my going on 8 yrs. .I also found a flying eagle I never thought I would find . Enjoy the hunt follow the rules Gods will Put something down in front of you . Just enjoy and swing Then when you hear something or see you detector act crazy . I call them anomolies . some thing out of the ordinary Like indicator doing something it never has done . dig it . When my detector gives me a signal I never see that is more than likely a keeper I have never found Welcome To TNET. I am sick with this. I would not have it any other way . Rob
