Racers 1st Big Penny Find :D
Quote this message in a reply
Hey all,

took a road trip 80 miles south to the Michigan/Indiana border on Saturday to do some diggin with a buddy of mine who lives down there.

Dirt is a bit different down that way = rocky, hard, clay type soil, hard to dig in compared to my somewhat more sandy/loamy dirt that I'm used to diggin in around here No

Hit an old ghost town/field site where some houses stood at one point like 125/150 yrs ago.

Here's some pics of my finds for the day. The Big Penny was reading 90/91 at the highest number but it was jumpin due to the iron content/mix in the site and hitting as low as in the 70s with a mixed low/mid/high tone as I was using 3 tone ID - had 5" OOR coil installed
