Found this Slick Liberty Quarter in the old house foundation I've been combing over. It was completely invisible to the detector until I got it on the surface. I was using my ATpro with the NEL snake coil in zero mode and I've found a lot of signals I missed in the past, but it's a struggle to isolate them with how much iron is in the ground.

I went out with a magnet to try to get the nails out of the way to unmask the good signals I know are there. Found quite a few square nails, but I don't think they're all that old. Other finds date the site to mid-late 1800's through maybe 1960. This nail was most likely used on a shiplap heart pine planks (based on my experience renovating old houses and trying to get these little @^&%# out without demolishing the house)

Obligatory dig pic. I was really hoping I'd get seated or a haircut, but I'll take it!
