Excelerator Finds Coins & Relics

I've been working around the house trying to catch up on some honey-do's the past few weeks. I couldn't take it anymore. So I loaded up my Explorer2 with the new EQ2 Excelerator 16.5 coil and headed to a farm field were the old town Poor House used to be. It is located on a steep hill, and Family's have been using it for slay riding for over a hundred years. I figured it would be a great place to check for some old coins.

Well it turn out that I was right. My first find was a liberty Head Nickel about eight inches deep. Not a bad start for the day. I detected for about four hours total. Finds were: two liberty Head nickels, three large cents, two buckles, two mercury's, two standing liberty's, one IH, and a nice Bell.

The EQ2 proved to be a winner again. It has excellent depth, and pinpointing with it was easy. This is a Great coil for covering large areas. As you can see I'm very happy with the coils performance.

Thank you for a great product.
