Found 1817 Large Cent with V3i

I found this nice 1817 large cent this week with my White's V3i using the 950 coil. It was about 8" in the ground from an old farm dating back to the 1700's in Massachusetts. I wanted to try the 950 coil to see what kind of results I would get.

I was not disappointed, the 950 coil worked great! The grass was high and thick, but I had no problem swinging the V3i. I also just got the 6x10 Eclipse coil from my dealer and will be trying that coil this week as long as the weather holds out. I also picked up a 1920 mercury in the same field.
