Went to a friends house this afternoon lent a hand moving a few things around. The Home is Circa 1900, I've dug it many times found a few goodies but today I hit a small patch of lawn in the front for the first time with my Nokta simplex. 10 mins into the dig I get a "88-89" reading. Five inches down out pops Mr Barbers creation in a 25 cent piece. My first silver of the year.

Tesoro compadre, which can find needles, but looking for something with a bigger coil/detects deeper, waterproof salt/fresh user friendly.
