    One Christmas Gift Found It, Another Gift Cleaned It!

    My Mrs. Claus gave me the 6 inch coil for the Equinox as a Christmas gift this year. I walked no more than 30 yards into a spot that is fairly trashy that Iíve worked before. The 6 inch coil hit a hard, solid 21 on the VDI target mixed in with the trash that I knew would be a coin. First hole dug with the new coil and I recover this IHP.

    I cleaned the coin with my other Christmas gift that was given to me by a relative.

    These are awesome, unfortunately the reverse side of the coin is corroded which no amount of cleaning can fix. The obverse side however was cleaned using only the crayon and the results are amazing! Good luck and happy hunting into the New Year everyone!

    Nice find and nice cleaning job. I really like the Andres pencils. If they can't clean a coin, nothing will.
