Found Over 1600 Coins in 4 Months

I bought my MXT 4 months ago and have found over 1600 coins so far. The first 2 months, I didn’t dig and weak signals, I missed several. The MXT is really a remarkable detector. I found almost all the coins and jewelry at public schools and parks that have been hunted for years.

I found several coins in holes where someone had already dug and missed. The discriminator also let me find lots of coins lying next to junk. Also, the batteries lasted over 50 hours. I also went relic hunting 2 times and found 19 mini balls and a cast iron pistol (picture included).

I am really enjoying my MXT and wish I had bought it years ago. Two of my friends at church have also bought MXT’s in the last 3 weeks. We have not been able to get together and hunt yet, but we plan on it soon. I am enclosing a picture of some of the coins and jewelry I have found. Several of them are silver. One is an anchor on one side with Jesus on the cross on the flip side. I found a sterling ring, mercury dime and walking liberty half dollar this weekend that are not in the pictures.
