  1. Odd penny the size of a nickel

    So I dug this up Saturday at the river and before I cleaned it I thought it was a nickel, turns out it was nickel sized penny. What the heck? The edge has a groove all the way around too. Lincolns head is clearly bigger.

    I was using the "deep" mode today and noticed the numbers were a little higher than they used to be, checked again in "Basic" and the same happened, had to re-learn numbers, pennies coming in at 94-95, zinc pennies anywhere from 91-98, quarters as high as 99 couple times, nickels at 65-67...

    Went out with the V4 and found a couple rings, one gold class ring and some clad along with some pennies, I dug pretty much everything to test and get used to the new program, I used the "deep" program mostly. I'm not sure if I paid attention more or if actually worked better. I found a '71...
  8. My Garrett Carrot tip wore through.

    My Garrett Carrot tip wore through and now it's giving false readings, sometimes stays with a constant beep on even when near nothing. Is it common for these things to wear out? I've had it less than a year and the tip is pretty much gone. I don't dig with it, it's just sanded off. Can you...

  11. Went back out and found gold ring.

    I posted a brass SF mint token earlier that tricked me thinking it was gold. I went back out today and found real gold!:thumbsup: I was getting discouraged lately, it's been a while since I've found anything besides clad and what do you know! I was actually after silver and I thought it was...
  12. This had me going for a bit, not gold.

    I found this about a foot deep, I saw the first half of the date and got pretty excited but turns out it's a commemorative coin from the the 70's. Oh well, it's still kind of neat. Big ol' token. The Mint began striking these small bronze medals for collectors back in the 1970s. This...

  14. Anyone else in pain after detecting?

    Hi, I started out detecting with a Vaquero and would go out for 5 hours no problem, never even thought about it. After that got a MX Sport which was sort of heavy, not too bad but heavier than the Vaquero and that's when this started, now using the DEUS. Problem is after about an hour my left...

    My father in law died a few years ago, he was on committees investigating communists in the 40's and 50's. I found these going through his belongings recently. There are about twenty of them. Any ideas how to market them if they are worth anything? SF, LA, Hollywood….I found some copies of...
  18. Have the MX Sport updates been successful?

    For those who have them I'd like to know. I am really interested in this detector but I'm a little leary buying it.. How is depth compared to my Vaquero, does it really work on the beach, do all modes work properly? I have watched the videos on youtube but they're not saying much about it...
