V3i Finds Passed Over Pin!

While detecting December 1st with my V3i I made this nice find. Here's my story.

A couple of friends and I went out for our regular once a week detecting hunt. I was working a gopher ravaged meadow when I received a strong 64 signal. Now keep in mind I don't usually dig a 64 signal but this signal was so solid that I just had to dig it. The signal was shallow and sitting on a gopher hill. I pinpointed it and dug less than an half in and popped this beautiful art nouveau ferry pin. I was very shocked to see such a nice pin that I'm sure many other detectorist have passed over but not the V3i!
