    FOUND 1st GOLD COIN!!! $5 1910

    Went out late afternoon after thunderstorms moved through to my new hunting areas. After finding a few memorials, Jefferson nickel, pulltabs and junk with my DEUS I got kind of a broken quarter reading. Quarter reading? Keep in mind Target ID numbers with the DEUS are not very accurate in salt water areas, at least with my experience. Nevertheless I decided to dig a hole hoping for a silver quarter, when pin pointing I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a gold rimmed and during my excitement I called my friend Don-in-Brewster (TNET member) and told him what I found!


    I was so excited I couldn't concentrate on detecting, kept going for an hour longer, managed to find a subway token, I guess, who cares..... I found a FREAKIN GOLD COIN!

    I don't know what else to write, I'm so excited and happy to share this excitement. I put the coin back in the hole for a photo to show how deep it was. Enjoy the photos.

    Thanks for looking and Happy Hunting

    Still can't believe it, yesterday Trime today a $5 gold coin. I used to wonder if I ever find one when I see other people's posts, I guess it's possible, I was with my friend Don in Brewster when he found a 1871 English gold coin.

    Thanks for reply

    By the way I just performed a air test with the DEUS using my program 18Khz. Target ID number is 81/82 so I can't explain why I was getting 96/97 when it was in the wet rocky sand.
