First Detection

Hi everybody,

I bought a X-TERRA 705 this winter and waited till last week to use it because in Quebec, winter has been cold and snowy. I had never used a metal detector before, except 30 years ago, with my uncle, when we dug a 1 meter deep hole in my grand-parents back-yard to find a big iron sheet.

So this week, I have detected in 2 local parks (about 10 hours in total) and I liked the thrill to discover (modern) coins. I m starting to get to know my detector and it seems a very good machine!

Here are my finds (about 25$ in coins and a ring… and much trash)
