    This is what I've been talking about on another post. Its so important on a good site to clear every signal no matter how bad, it takes years but its a must if you want to be sure.

    CONGRATS on a nice looker.
    It has been your post and others that have really made me question "why not" dig it all. We run the hot program and we had been paying too much attention to the graph screen. I replaced the graph with just numbers a few months back. Now I will at times even leave the controller in my pocket and just concentrate on the sounds when were are in an area without a lot of "new" trash. I must say it has made all the difference in the world. More rings, jewelry and finds that were deeper. I am amazed at the amount of deeper targets we have found. Just because it beeps one way and not the other doesn't mean don't dig.

    This would NOT HAVE BEEN found if it wasn't for everyone here sharing their knowledge and tips! Thank you all!!

    It should also be noted that here is another example of a West Coast gold coin. We don't have large cents, Colonial coppers, and bust coins jumping out of every sandbox like the East Coast guys do. but our consolation is that we can get gold coins over here. Haha

    Wow, I've never thought to dig a signal that just beeps one way...gonna have to try it. Approximately how deep are these "one beep" signals??

    Your are so correct sir!!!!! Between the 5 of us up here who hit it hard, we have only 1 1822 large cent to show. Lots of nice Spanish though! I do miss going to the wife's family places in New Jersey and Delaware though! Sure miss finding the old "older" stuff! But I sure won't complain about the gold coins we have found out our way!

    Most of the one way signals for us have been smaller coins that are straight up and down in the ground. Not laying flat. They also have been anywhere between 6-10 inches deep using the larger coil. I have been using the small one the past summer but switched a few weeks ago because this darn DEUS just seems to like to have as much space available. I of course hear "everything" in the ground so all the rusted stuff even gets dug up when we hear that little squeak in the background. Gets tiresome but well worth it. Of course a few beers along the way and slowing down helps!

    [FONT=Book Antiqua]Got out today for some much needed time away from civilization. After a long weekend of work my hunting buddy and I set out. Of course it didn't matter to me where we went so we went to an area where some nice finds have come from in the past. Old seated dimes and lots of cavalry buttons and such. The fort sits along one of our many wagon trails we didn't really expect much except maybe a button or two since we have hit this place hard. With our new DEUS settings we managed lots of Henry Casings, bullets, one OX shoe and the normal garbage of an old stage stop.

    After 3 hours, cold wind and nothing to show for our effort; we decided to start walking back to the rig and go to another spot......"walk back to the rig?" How many times has this happened to us. My buddy was walking on one side of the old rock corral area and I the other which was next to the old wagon road. I thought, well, if parked a wagon and jumped off, where would I land? Both of us use the Deus and shotgun shells in the area hit most of the time around 72-78. Of course digging "EVERYTHING", I get the nice lower tone 71. I take out a round dirt clump and begin smashing it over my coil thinking for sure it was a shotgun shell . Except the clump was getting smaller and small until the flash of gold fell onto my coil. I throw off the headphones and yell at my friend "GOLD". I hadn't looked to see what it was till he made it over.

    After some foul language and laughing, along with a little water we see it. A beautiful 1865-S 2 1/2 Dollar piece . We were both amazed but not surprised since this was the second gold coin from the fort area. For sure we have walked over it before, not wanting to dig shells. But now digging ALL TARGETS has really paid off. A few feet away I was able to find my target for the day, a single cavalry button with no markings on the back.........

    Of course I called my son who is at college and he refused to believe me until we sent a couple of pictures. He called me a few names and told my buddy to hit me over the head! He will be back this weekend since we have a Nevada trip planned for more digging

    Its been awhile we haven't posted but I haven't wanted to bore everyone with the 100's of wheat pennies we have dug over the past few months so today was great. Thanks for looking and remember; DIG EVERYTHING!!!!!

    There are no ancient secrets to decoding the past, there is only great research and applied logic.
