    I hunt vacant lots where houses have been torn down and I get a lot of iron pipe. You have to dig it though, because you never know what under it or next to it. I've also seen what at first seemed like a plain old pipe turn out to be an old shotgun barrel....

    I don't think that sucker would fit in my pouch! Dang you must have been digging for a while and that thing must be rather heavy especially filled with dirt. Hope you didn't have to carry very far. Keep digging

    I forget the amount of times I dig iron in the same hole as a keeper. The one that sticks in my head is when I dug what I knew was going to be a large horseshoe & right next to it Dad dug a gold coin. If we had left that signal = no gold coin.

    I talked to a guy today that dug up a 1917 license plate on his curb at 4 feet. I wouldn't have considered that a fair return for my labor.

    Me, I dug up a 4" length of heavy iron pipe at a foot. It was the weight of a hand grenade.

    And that's why I do. It's not what you dig it's when you dig it.

    Is that an old window weight from a house or a piece of pipe?

    I never dig many iron signals, as most of the places I hunt are loaded with them. I always wonder what I am missing though. My friend has found some pretty cool relics by digging iron signals.

    There was a time when treasure was buried in a iron chest. The Fisher F75 I have allows me to out line a target and get a good depth id. I also have modes that pick up deep objects larger than a quarter. Your still gonna dig stuff like that, but maybe you need a different detector.

    Why dig a signal that big. I generally make a note of the object and wait for a down day or wetter ground.

    I did all my signals...It may be overkill, but it has paid off many times. The first, second, or even third iron signal you dig will be nothing, but the digging will be worth it and then some with an iron signal.
