I got out for an hour after work today for hunt #9, I went to the same park as my last hunt.

Everything, 3 coppers and a 5c, plastic dinosaur and 2 dollar big_smile

This I found which I'm pretty happy with, After some googling I'm thinking it's a padre poi. Doesn't have any value I don't think it's silver or gold but it's a keeper:

Last hunt before Friday when forum member manpa and I go hit an old park, we'll see what two newbies can come up with

Cheers

Well done DT-SA.

I was thinking that little one at the bottom looked like Abe Lincoln, but probably not.

The $2 coin looks strange - almost a plastic, fakey? Seems to have a real raised edge on it?

How did you detect a plastic dinosaur? big_smile big_smile

The $2 is plastic big_smile I found them both on the surface, some poor tacka must have left them behind

Thanks for the info, I'm not much into beach detecting anyway. I'm after relics and coins. The ace 400 seemed to do ok on the beach though, I discriminated upto 30 and put sensitivity at about half and I had very little false signals and chatter

Are you saying it will just miss targets completely or were you referring to the constant chatter?

Both DSA - my son has a CTX and proceeded to point me to a target - ran the dectector across and nothing - his beeps and he pulls out a shilling.

Also the falsing in wet sand or inches of water negates any chance of finding the goods. Unless the target is 3-4 inches down it has no hope.

Yeah fair enough good info, I won't be wasting my time at the beach anytime soon then!

I'd love me a Ctx 3030, abit pricey and haven't been able to convince the missus yet big_smile

I got out for hunt #10 today,

I went to a park in an old suburb in adelaide today for a few hours, i got only trash and coins.

Few bucks in spendables and an old penny:

1515761956_img_3361.jpg

Penny is from 1917 which is by far my oldest coin so that's nice even if it is pretty worn

1515762022_img_3362.jpg

I was hoping to pluck my first silver out of the ground today but it wasn't my day! I'd definitely come back to that spot again, it's got a silver for me I know it tongue

I think you will find that the little coin is Saint Pio or Padre Pio, maybe.

Yes the one with Pio is a medallion from the Catholic church. They put them onto a chain and hang them around their neck. They may even pray to him for a miracle to heal someone they love.
