    1847 and 2 king george coppers =good day -*video*

    I live on long Island, in New York. Long islands has a ton of history. This history is being destroyed by new houses and by the people living there. People lately dont give a crap about history. I am 13 and I love history. I have been metal detecting since I was 6, it is a great hobby. I have found now 8 coppers in the farm field you will see in my video. The farm is owned by my cousin Danny Lathem. I found 2 king george coppers and an 1847 half dime, I found a few other notable pieces of history including a 1863 store token(not shown in video).

    Nice finds. You need a Garrett Propointer.

    I disagree, you may need them when doing grass with a big knife & small holes(I've seen how many coins get scratched) but in the field, it's quicker without. Out the hole with a big spade,1 grab,in the pouch. (30 second job from signal to pouch) By the time most have messed around looking at the VDU reading/pinpointed, put the detector down, got on their knees, & got the pointer out, I've bent over & scooped it up, gone onto the next hole & done the same again. So my point is, that if you want to become a speedy 'field hunter' practice/brain is all you need not another toy.

    The only use I have for 1 is the 1 in 50 holes that are over 12", so that in heavy clay I can check if I'm still going down or its on the edge. (this has sped up my deeper holes & therefore my overall performance) The secret to good Field Hunting is systematically covering 'area', area covered is purely about two factors(other than overall time spent); No. of holes dug & speed. If you dig as much junk as Dad & I then it becomes more important to speed up to cover the area. Simple stuff. (A pinpointer for every hole would slow us up by at least 10% = less area, less finds)

    I hope those that are serious Field Hunters know what I'm on about, if not it maybe time to leave the pinpointer at home & improve your recovery technique. When the target is out the hole, hopefully first dig, bearing in mind you should know from the signal/sound (no VDU on my machine! looking slows you up as well) how deep it is, & therefore you dig the right amount of soil/ie not too much, then a quick spread of the dirt with your foot. Check with detector, bent & grab, job done. With my 11" coil this is more difficult & takes time/more practice, if Cru'dad is by my side & a tiny target is out the hole, I will get him to recover it with the smaller coil, freeing me up to carry on, therefore improving our joint performance. (well oiled team)

    Scottso:
    You had a good day, don't waste money on more toys, specially if you specialise in field hunting for those older finds, practice is all you need & you have started young enough to get plenty. You nearly learnt a lesson today about those waste of space VDU's. Tape over it & trust your ears, you will improve your finds. The more you look at the VDU the less you learn, trust me.

    TOO BUSY TO DETECT, YOU'RE TOO BUSY!!!

    How do you find Gold coins? Reply: 'By finding lots of Silver ones..'

    this correct! in a plowed field,all you need is a relic shovel
    dig,flip your soil over check for target,recover target using coil!
    since you are dealing with planting soil in a field,a pro-pointer will just slow the you
    down,and make ya get on your knees on every dig! this is totally not necessary!
    all ya gotta do is bend a little and let the shovel do the work for ya,just bend once to pick up your find!
    that's it!
