    Went out for a hunt where two old houses were recently torn down.

    Just like the title said, I went out with my cousin to do some detecting at this house site by the tracks. We spent a couple of hours looking but with a combination of hard ground and there being so much metal, cans, and foils in the ground that my deus sounded like it was playing some electronic rave music the only thing we found that wasn't trash was a 1969 penny. With the Deus I like to hear everything, but before we left I was having mental fatigue from the amount of signals and turned discrimination all the way up just to cut down on signals. I even started cherry picking only signals in the 90s and only found metal scraps. Still got out and swung a detector.

    Is that 1969 or 1909?

    I feel for ya. Sounds like one of my regular "hunts". Lots of garbage in the ground and lucky to find anything greater than a pulltab

    Sometimes those most anticipated places are crap, and then at the public park you find the 1919 Mercury. It's a weird hobby, yet oh so fun. Keep at it.
