    First hunt with new Vanquish 540

    My dad and I recently upgraded from our old Tesoro machines (now that they're out of business) with new Vanquish 540s. Today we broke them in at a new permission: an old homesite thought to be from the 1800s. Sadly, no silver but we did find some good stuff and will definitely be going back for another go. We are loving the new machines! They go super deep and are accurate with pinpointing, depth, and target ID. The iron bias works great on small nails and such, though it does still pick up the larger iron nails and spikes.

    The finds:
    1910 Wheatie
    1919 Wheatie
    1968 Memorial penny
    Brass/copper hose nozzle
    Double bit axe head
    UMC Co. 12ga casing
    Harmonica reeds
    Small shoe nail?
    Unremarkable ring of some sort

    Great finds, with Toecutter stated bring your Silver uMax out for a ride see if you are able to pick up any Silver?

    So here's an update on the axe head after an electrolysis bath. It's pretty rough and there are no stamps or marks that I can see, there is just too much pitting. But the handle was still in it when it was lost! I was hoping it would be in better shape but it's still a cool find and my first double axe head. Click image for larger version.
