Nothing edible, but, it still satisfied some hunger! I started the day using the new Deus 2 in a park just trying to get some hours on it and get used to the new menu, settings, and sounds. Found the 4 big brass discs and the little crescent moon charm there with that, along with just under $3 in change. I had a call for a lost necklace at the beach, so, in the afternoon I went there with the Equinox. I decided on it over the D2 because I'm more familiar with it plus it has a 15" coil vs. only the 9" on the D2. Anyway, didn't find the necklace (it had been lost 2 days prior and probably already found by someone) but, I did find another $3+ in change, the 1/2" Craftsman socket, the 3 brass snap hooks, 3 charms, 1 belly button ring, a souvenir quashed penny, a hot wheel, a junk earring, a button, a hat pin, 6 junk rings, and 2 silver rings. 8 rings in one hunt is a dry sand record for me. Too bad there wasn't a gold or two in the bunch!

So my question is why is the nickel in the plastic toy holder? was it a special nickel? Looks like it was a fun day.

I don't know....maybe part of an Easter egg hunt? There was a nickel and a dime inside.
