This summer up here was very hot. I only got out 5 times between July and September. I went to a cellar that I hadn’t been to since 2015 when I was fairly new and using the AT pro. The first 4 hunts were solid, I found 7 Infantry button and a POD railway button. We got a soaking rain on Monday,Tuesday so I went back out. What a difference!!! I think I found the rest of the jacket! 9 more infantry buttons! For a total of 16! Happy dance! I had a extra hour so I went down the road and hit the cellar where I found the mass button, got 4 small designed buttons and a flat superfine button. Whoo!!!

Can't get a clear picture really, kind if blurry.
Maybe take a few more un better lighting and of the backs.
Looking forward to seeing a closer look.

If you click on the photos, they come out clear. At least for me. Everywhere I’ve posted, the pics are clear. It’s the site

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

Those are killer buttons!
Would have been really amazing to get some of the wool. :)

Some say a detector will detect up to 30% deeper in wet ground.
I'm not sure if it's that much but it's deeper for sure.
Thanks!It was definitely deeper for sure and without a lot too. It’s been so dry here, it just made the soil look normal
