    my first post and my best find

    Hello all, my first post. I started detecting 3 months ago and I am totally addicted. When I'm not out swinging, I am researching local history and Plats. I have made some nice finds on every hunt (which is every morning at dawn till about noon). I never come home empty handed. So far I have a 1837 large cent, 10 mercury dimes, 1 barber dime, about 30 wheaties, a dozen silver nickles, 6 silver rosies, 3 sterling silver rings, a civil war bullet(there were 2 civil war camps here in town, a civil war button, lots of clad, and quite a few old artifacts. But the coin I am most proud of is an 1863 Civil War Token found at one of the local lakes. I researched it and it is a Indiana Primitive in VF condition. There are only 5 to 9 known to exist. The scan didn't come out too good, sorry. By the way I use a White's XLT. Will post more pics of my other coins soon.

    I also have an XLT; I've had it for a while but seldom use it. I am trying to make the time and I could use some tips on the operation of it. Any tips? Great finds by the way!
