I like the good luck token.......makes you wonder what ever happened to John and Jackie. Did they break up and toss the token? Did they get married? Not a real common last name, so, you might be able research it to see.

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

Did they rig up at 26? Is there a reason why you are using M2?

I have been using M2 on hunted out areas where all that is left is low conductors or coins on edge….theoretically thinking M2 might work better in those situations. Honestly though with hitting nickels haven’t seen a big diff between M1 and 2. (But I pulled three thin rings a couple weeks ago in a spot already covered in M1) the nickels here were bouncing between 25/26. War nickels have been 26/27

I didn’t get my first Buffalo for almost a year after getting my first detector. I have been lucky to dig a bunch this year. I have basically gone back to old parks with the Legend and dig every nickel range signal (about 24-27) of depth. Yes I have gotten probably 200 pull tabs but this year doing that but have also gotten 1’shield nickel, 1 V nickel, 4 war nickels, and 6 buffalos.
