    I have been metal detecting since late November, although not very many times out, probably 15 to 20 hours total so far. The weather hasn't been very good. Found a few wheat cents all in the 1950's, about $4.00 in newer coins, and old axe head and a brass gas light wall assembly, some other cool trinkets, but no silver coins yet... until now. Just learning the AT Pro, but the signal was bouncing between 79-83, 8" deep on pin point, signal was in between many other beeps that were stronger, the high pitch one was repeating though, but not from every angle, I dug a deep plug with my spade, about 6" deep, ran my pro-pointer around bottom of hole, lead me to a ball of dirt at bottom, then I saw it, a shiny glint of metal, and it was round, popped it open and finally I had found a silver coin, a well worn 1948 Roosevelt dime. I am happy to show it off, and hope there will be a few more silvers to follow in 2014. This is a really cool hobby, I wish I had started years ago.

    Great job Kurt! Always feels great to see that shiny silver in the hole. Just wait til you start hitting the oldies. Keep up the good work

    Thanks Ahab8. I have been researching a bunch of public places that I plan to hit when the weather gets better, also, going to try to line up permission to hunt on private property, but I will wait until the ground thaws. I notice that from my own yard hunting, digging in frozen ground, it is hard to repair and make look like it was... and I don't want to do that on someone else's property.

    Thanks 65Chevy. I want to get back out today, but it's raining here in the Pittsburgh area. I don't mind that the top couple of inches of ground is frozen, but don't care to much for the mud and slop. Sunday is supposed to be rain free, I will be out and hope to find #2. Thanks again and good luck to you.

    Good call buddy. You never want to mess up a property. I do mostly very old sites that are in the middle of nowhere but if you plan on hunting a fair amount of public areas I'd definitely recommend a book called The Urban Treasure Hunter. This book will help you a lot in learning what to look for and seeing opportunities that most would miss. I have it myself because it includes tons of tips that will help anyone regardless of what type of treasure hunting they're into. Good luck out there
