    Metal detecting is 99 percent location and 1 percent luck.

    SUPERB find -- and of course one we ALL dream about! WAY TO GO!

    I haven't read all posts here, so this may have been asked, but WHAT, to you, sounded "different" about this 60-61 VDI, versus other "pull tab" 60-61 signals?

    AMAZING dig! And great job making the dig decision -- you were rewarded IMMENSELY!!!

    CONGRATS!

    Apologies for the delay in my response. Just seeing your post and question. Well, first of all: thank you for the kind words! Much appreciated. To answer your question regarding the sound I heard: I dig A LOT of public land (parks, schools, playgrounds etc) that are FULL of pulltabs. I mean full! Each time I go out I seem to dig at least 30-50 tabs of different types. I seem to believe that I have that noise in my head of what a tab makes on my detector, but I still seem to dig a whole bunch of them. Now, when I get a 61 reading and I sounds SLIGHTLY less crisp (bigger) I always assume it is not a tab and always dig that target. Most times I am wrong, and it's still a tab. But on occasion, it will turn up a ring or button or in this case, a gold coin. The other argument here is: I was at a house! Not a park with thousands of homeless people's beer tabs everywhere! So I guess the situation dictates also! If I'm at a house, I dig everything! If I'm at a park, I sometimes pass on those classic tab signals....however, I've thought a lot lately about if I've ever passed up something nice! I'm sure it's happened. But it's hard to dig every single target when every swing I get multiple tab signals. I try to stay true and dig it all....but hey, that gets old after your 35th pull tab in 15 minutes lol.

    Sorry for the long drawn out response. I think this particular target sounded a bit bigger and happened to be in the right setting to get dug. The same tone at my park....I might have left it alone hard to say! Try to dig ALL tones possible! You never know what lies beneath!! HH and GL

    I've been detecting for years and have found my fair share of gold but never in the form of a coin, congrats! I'm jealous!
