What Will You Find?

1756 Half Reale

My first target of the day and a very iffy target at that. I would get a good signal one out of 4 swings at different angles, but since it was high toned and deep I opened quick mask on the E-TRAC to see what it would read and it was in the iron range of 30-42, 28-42 and then it would bounce down to 17-42.

At least it wasn't a rusty bolt or nail, which is what I normally dig up with that type of signal. I dug it because once in a blue moon a coin will show up. On top of the ground it read 12-42.
