I went back to the Large Cent site for a couple hours this afternoon with the two oldest kids. It was a pretty slow hunt overall with a lot of trash although I did like the cast iron stove foot. The very last signal of the day was the half dime. I thought it was a toy aluminum coin at first. My daughter was really excited to find a couple of square nails. I wish they were as exciting to find for me since I seem to find so many 😁

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

It almost looks like toy money but what a great way to end your hunt! Your daughter must be very patient...
