Went out to Merced fair grounds today with my mother to metal detect. She used her AT Pro and I had my Dues XP to get some practice. I found a bunch of pennies, dimes, and a few quarters along with some random junk. My mother would find signals with the AT Pro and mark them for me to dig I didn't mind because I went over those marked spots with the Dues to get an idea of what good stuff sounds like and looks like on the Dues XP. So I was about to dig one of the spots and was telling my mother there is no way there is no jewelry out here where the rides are people had to have lost things here. We'd dug tons of change in the few visits there but no jewelry. Funny thing though as I was saying that and dug the last spot she had left for me out pops a good sized sterling silver heart earring. My mother made the find of the day but I was fine with that was glad she got to find something good.
