First Time Out

I purchased a Minelab X-TERRA Gold Pack and recently picked up the 9" 3kz coil. We got a couple of inches of snow before I had a chance to get out with the new coil.

Having a little cabin fever, I went out anyways knowing the ground was not frozen yet. I got a Penny signal at about 8" deep and decided to dig it. Low and behold I thought I found a wheat penny.

Finished my hunt and returned to the car and decided to check out my find. The coin was covered in a heavy green patina. I rubbed the back and saw the word One Cent. I knew I had something a little older than a wheat.

Come to find out it was a 1874 Indian Head Penny that looks like it was dropped right after it was minted.

Not only is the X-TERRA Gold pack great for gold but It's great for finding other treasures.
