    Thanks you Tnmountains we never see the around these parts. Iím about 60 miles outside New Orleans. It was a honor to find in it within all those nails. And the erect shank was a bonus,

    in the meantime, congrats!
    Thanks BuckleBoy and congratulations to you as well. You got 2 banner votes from from your amazing day. That tag just blew my doors off.

    Beautiful button Truth! I am also trying to figure out the 800's frequencies. I always use multi and turn down sensitivity in trash or iron. Yesterday I was along a 350 year old road with lots of modern trash. I fiddled with the frequencies but I'm afraid I'll miss something. I read the directions on the spot but that didn't help. I'm going back there today and I'll try 20khz. You never know. If anyone can explain frequencies in laymens terms I'd appreciate it. Good luck out there. GM

    20 khz does seem to be a optimal on iron with the Deus - swinging the round HF in 28 most of the time. Congrats on saving that beautiful pelican from the iron, state military buttons will always hold a special place for those that dig them in their native soil. Congrats on checking that one off the bucket list.
