What Will You Find?

Smallest U.S. Coin

I was hunting an area that used to be a Stagecoach stop back in the 1800's. I was hunting for about 30 minutes when I got a loud 7 inch hit. The TID hit 12/10 12/12. So I was hoping for a V nickel. After pulling the plug, I used my PRO-FIND 25 to locate the elusive target. Finally finding it, and getting the tiny target in my hand, I swiped away the soil. To my amazement, the target was gold colored. It was a gold coin! An 1852 $1.00 gold piece. The CTX 3030 is a Beast and never ceases to amaze me. I never leave home without "THE BEAST".
