    What is a shinny quarter? Does it have something to do with the lower legs?

    You also have to remember that not all objects fall and land flat providing a larger surface for a "hit". Coins are often upright or on an angle in the ground and will not show up the same way they would if lying flat. Different metals have different conductivity so a ring will not always show up as a ring on the target id. Try not to rely to heavily on the upper target id indicator. Learn your tones. If the hit isnt consistent and repeatable try turning yourself 90 degrees to where you received the last tone. This sometimes helps due to the orientation of the object in the ground. Practice,Practice,Practice. Good Luck!

    Since good starting advice was already posted, i'll just add this.

    Make sure u tape the coil cord in at least 2 places. One on the lower and one on the upper shaft. Especially close to the control box, this helped me tremendously.

    Interesting Jay. Did it increase consistency?

    Hard to say. It did help with falsing in my case. I think the coil was hitting on the loose cord. And bumping the cord connection against me when swinging. The most important thing to learn is using the md to determine the size of the Target. If coin size, DIG.

    I just got the Ace 350 and was having all kinds of the same issues. But with some practice have been getting the hang of it. You should dig on all targets when first starting out. Every MD'er I know told me the same thing before I got mine. As for ignoring foil hits I was doing that at first also, then the other day I got curious and dug one up. Turned out to be a small gold ring. I do mine in zero mode and then cancel out iron and leave it from foil to silver wide open about 4 notches down from the top on sencitivity.... Have found some Silver Buttons the ring, and of course the usual junk you read about....
