V3i Finds a Beautiful Seated Liberty

My friend and I decided to detect a small local park with a few soccer fields. We both are detecting with V3i. The open area that we were detecting must had the ground cleared and leveled out some years ago for these young folks to play ball on. As we were detecting, both me and my buddy start finding rifle shells, can slaw, and some modern trash.

We did have some local interference from power lines nearby but that doesn’t stop us. My friend found an old copper button, but nothing to be too concerned about. About 2 hours into detecting I got a nice 84 VDI signal about 6 inches down, with a nice tight pin point on the 2.5 kHz scale giving me my best signal. I`m thinking this must be a good target, and I even said this to my friend that was nearby.

I dug a nice round plug, and a hand full of dirt from the hole and used my Whites Bullseye II pinpointer in the hole.....Nothing. I then check the dirt that I pull out.... BINGO!!... Wow!!....What a beauty!!!! We now know with the copper button and seated liberty quarter we might have to investigate a little further!!!!
