Minelab X-Terra 505 with stock coil or 18.75khz elliptical coil depending upon the site. Upgraded to Equinox 600

My first time taking equinox on the beach and I only got clad, fishing stuff and a piece of sea glass. Learned a lot though. Got hit by many waves, ruined my already destroyed shoes and broke the cheap sand scoop an ex got me... cashed in clad and put it towards a ckg. Though coinstar only took 194/212 quarters...

Fan base was from a quick before hunt work in water along with crunchy 1911 wheaty. Sunday I was trying the site of an old school house but it became a dumping spot in the late 1950s so it's covered in cans and bottles and over grown. Popped out a 1958 Pennsylvania license plate though. Moved sites to a site my friend hunted a lot before his simplex broke. He really never goes there anymore. Took my equinox and sniper coil. If you go slow you can get stuff though I loose patience after like 2 hours. Lot of big iron and nails. This time a few nickels and two old buttons. "Warranted Rich Gold Surface " and "Standard Gilt". Up to five old buttons from here, an 1883 Indian head, lead pewter tea cup, pocket watch case, two crumbly pewter buttons, a pair of conjoined twin Indians , piece of harmonica reed and a suspender clip with a dove and dragon fly on it.
