Got out for half a day hunting around an old homesite that had a cellar and well. I started hunting around the rocks that supported the home. I got a good signal and dug a token with in the first 10 minutes. About a hour later after several bullets and a few mason jar tops. I stumbled across a 1920 wheat penny. With about 20 minutes left to hunt pulled up a Indian head about 6 feet from where the wheat was at. I got home and cleaned up the “top pocket” finds and the token was from 1922 from a coal mine company store. The Indian is my oldest coin found to date. The Indian is a 1904.

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