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!!
    Thanks.

    I truly believe the best discriminator is our ears, not the machine. When you change your mindset & trust less in the electronics, the overall results improve. Thanks for learning, many do not.

    I copied this from the web! This was a few days pay for a private.

    "Union privates were paid
    $13 per month until after the final raise of 20 June '64, when they got $16. In the infantry and artillery, officer was as follows at the start of the war: colonels, $212; lieutenant colonels, $181; majors, $169; captains, $115.50; first lieutenants, $105.50; and second lieutenants, $105.50."

    That is way cool. Thank you for sharing. It just so happens my buddy's father-in-law is an avid detector as well. About 8 years ago in the same area( 20 yards or so), he pulled out a great 1861-S $10 dollar piece. On the marker at this location, it was noted how much butter, milk and other items were at the post. I must say, things were VERY expensive back in those days. Perhaps this is why we have found no 5C's or IHP's. Seated Half, quarters and dimes though......
