Short water hunt
Went to a local swimming area with some history yesterday. Took my 16 year old nephew and let him use the AT Pro. We went different directions and after about 30 min he hollered to me saying he had a high pitch and couldn't find the item. I helped him pinpoint and a short time later he pulls a silver disc from the water. I was totally shocked and so was he. Ended up being a 1922 Peace Dollar. Looks like it was dropped soon after it was minted. I think I made a lifer out of him.
