I shirked my responsibilities this morning and knocked on a few more doors. After a couple of rather enthusiastic NO's!!!, I got a yes from an old gal with a tiny, gravely, weedy and overgrown yard. Not really sure why I even asked, but glad I did. Took me all of 20 minutes to search the yard and pulled a nice 1935 nickel, a '40 & '44 penny and a Grimland Play Coin (1940's I believe). The Legend sniffed that little thing out at about 8 inches down.

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

Nice finds. A two wheats and a buffalo nickel on the same hunt is a thrill.
