    You've got to be kidding . . . .

    Now I know it's getting close to Valentines Day. I was out in my yard for about 30 minutes this morning. Still not finding anything but old tools (shovel head, Axe head, tractor plowing blades, etc.). Still searching for that old coin, lost jewelry, Civil War relic, etc. But still no luck.

    Got a strong Quarter hit on my Ace 250. No matter which way I swung the coil it would register a Quarter. I just knew I had finally found a coin.

    Dug down 7-8" and found this old piece of rusted metal that someone had formed into a heart.

    Oh well, thanks to the encouragement of everyone here at TN, I'll continue searching.

    I'll try posting pics.

    Thanks for looking & Happy Huntin'

    I think the heart is a very cool find! It's very unusual and fun to have found it close to Valentine's Day.

    Don't get discouraged've got to get all the "junk" out first....then the treasures will flow. Good luck.

    awwww your all heart!

    TRUST ME... the coins will come. I have the Ace250 and I have found mostly coins, nothing old yet but I haven't really been able to get out anywhere good to hunt.

    I took off my wedding ring and put it on the ground thinking it would read as a pull didn't it reads as a nickel, so when I get a chance I am going to take a few rings and see what they register as. (Maybe I need to take my ring to the jewelers to make sure hubby didn't stiff me)

    Nice find. Seeing the Ginger ale can reminds me of when I was almost kicked off a greyhound bus for drinking Vernors Ginger Ale. The bus driver thought it was beer. This was back in the fifties.

    Well you obviously have probably the most important part of finding good stuff and that is a lot of heart. You really need to practice up before you dive into a heavy trash area. Start trying to determine the size of the target with your detector. Work your way around the target and try and visulaize the target by using the depth reading in conjunction with the size of the area that is setting the detector off. Picture your coil with a funnel on the bottom of it,where your coil shapes the top of the funnel. The funnel is as tall as your coil is wide,and the bottom of it is about the size of a quarter. If your coil is 8 inches wide then your detector is seeing an area the size of a quarter at 8 inches. If your detector is showing something at 6 inches that is setting the detector off in an area the size of a platter its probably not a good target,HH...Shoot
