    Anybody experienced detecting here in Ohio?

    I live in Northeast Ohio currently, where the dirt goes a few feet (or some places just a few inches) down then turns to clay. Anybody from around here done much hunting and have any idea on how deep you usually find coins? I am hoping to find coins especially from the mid 1800s to early 1900s.

    The detector I have is just a bounty hunter quicksilver, I am wondering if I will be able to find many old coins. I have done some detecting at a 1920s house the last couple of days, found 6 new coins and a wheatie, but I am going to go to a 1860s house soon.

    You should do ok with the Bounty Hunter but will pry have troubles in trashy areas, you can always go back to those places when you upgrade or give me the addresses and I can let you know what you missed

    I did a whole lot of swinging in Ohio in the 80's. Whole lot of that black sponge cake soil, dug dimes at 10" & 12" deep.

    At some sites the old coins were only between 4 and 7 inches and at others as deep as 8 through 10. I mainly hunt yards, parks, schools and other public lands but am not opposed to going into the fields, water, or woods.
