I had a lot of fun playing with one of those as a kid, brings back memories of seeing batman surfing at the beach on the hilarious 60's TV series. smile

The overload circuit is a p#$soff seems to over load on the smallest junk even a round buried powerade seal mad
The lack of ground balance seems to make ID numbers different and effects the depth it can hit the same target solidly when I go from an area of original sand/swamp dirt to where the top fill is
I barely scraped $6 and 30+ BB's and a lots of junk over the week

Hit my local beach to fall in a foot deep detector hole so left there after $2, a key, a cat bell, and 20c so looks like I've got competition to deal with hmm
Hit the park for the others

Thanks Heatho, I still wonder how it got there lol lol lol lol I have 1 other park that I got a penny and 6p from the top fill layer as well, so there could be more around that shouldn't be there
Had no idea I was digging a Florin, Thought it was a penny or copper offcut

Certainly worth the effort to extract that coin from the hard ground, older florins are becoming a rarity. smile

Yeah, gotta be carefull of those. sad I like my digging tool or screwdriver and you can hear the metal scraping on the glass, makes a pretty specific type of sound.

I bought a Fisher F22 from Amazon (I'm noob - just started) and based on my small number of outings, it does seem as though it fluctuates quite a bit and will sometimes lose a signal completely - I'm taking it to Hills End in a week or so to see what I can find - I'm hoping that with a bit more familiarity I'll have better luck reading this thing.

Hopefully it was from a reputable Fisher dealer via Amazon or your issues could be due to buying a fake?
