My First Find With New Detector

I finally had some time to get out in the afternoon on a beautiful day, and went to the local park just to get acquainted with my new X-TERRA 305.

I didn't expect much since I was told that the park was a city dump back in the 30's. I spent about 2 hrs finding a lot of beer tabs and old aluminum cans, was heading back towards my truck when a got a wonderful hit. Got down with my shovel and PRO-FIND 25 and wow! About 3 " down was roundness. Low and behold a 1908s barber dime..... way to go Minelab!
