I've been hunting a spot I call my Money Tree for a few months. I have found many Indian Head pennies, Wheats, 2 Large cents, 11 Silver coins & many relics. It surrounds an old oak tree said to be nearly 500 yrs old. I have been over this spot numerous times & continue to find things I've missed.

I've recently learned to dig those not so great signals, for example ones that read like iron but don't sound like iron. Doing so I found this pretty cool Antique Silver Quill pen minus the tip. The signal was bouncing between -10 & 36, but was mostly reading -10 because of iron next to it. I tried to locate the tip but have not found it yet.
