    This post sparked my attention so I pulled out a few of mine to see how they rang up on the Equinox 800. The coins were laid separately on the ground so this was nothing more than an air test.

    Coin Date VDI
    $0.50 1860 3

    $2.50 1925 15

    $5.00 1881 18

    $10.00 1888 21

    Your $1 VDI is different from all other test I have seen. Everyone else has been getting 10 / 11 IIRC. Maybe my memory is just bad. Any chance you can re-swing that one? In Park1 please and thank you.

    Sorry, for the error. Typing too fast for my 71 year old brain to catch up! The coin was a very small California Gold 50 cent piece not $1.00 and I was using Field 1.

    I think this goes back thousands of years and is true across all of the continents.

    Might be a hint of truth in this old wives tale..

    I'll check to see if the date on the coin matches the date the house was constructed..
    Very interesting. Never heard that before but I have heard of people burying caches of silver coins underneath the cornerstone of their house and that sort of thing. I know someone who got a real good signal somewhere near (I think underneath but not sure) the corner of a house. Didn't dig though because he didn't want to dig so close to the foundation.

    Down south the story goes to bury a coin of the most value you have under the hearthstone for luck. There's one under mine...

    The 2-1/2 dollar I found read like a shotgun shell normally does. I used the deus but don't like to state vdi numbers since there are so many different machines that use a different scale.
