MXT Finds 3 Golden Coins in a Tot Lot

Just a quick story about your MXT, I cannot begin to thank you for the ease of operation that you put into your MXT detector. I went out to some tot lots this morning for about 90 minutes or so. I used the factory settings and once again the MXT did not disappoint.

Although this is not a big haul by anyone's standards the focus of the story is VDI numbers. Note that there were four gold-ish coins in the picture, a golden quarter (which is a first for me by the way), a eurocent, and 2 golden dollars. Each of these sounded off as a quarter - and the VDI numbers were between 79-80. The MXT was right on. You never know what is coming out of the hole, or in this case the wood chips.
