Treasure Finds: Kellyco VIP Matt Ryan Uses the Simplex

Hello everyone!

The name is Matt Ryan. I run the Youtube channel Tennessee Adventures and am part of the Kellyco VIP team. 

I was out with my Nokta Simplex the other day when I got a really good signal ringing up lower than a penny. I had the Nokta Makro Simplex in field mode and the sensitivity was set to halfway. I prefer to use field mode because it seems a lot deeper than the other modes to me and I prefer the tones on it way better.

I picked that particular park because the trees were really old. That’s usually something that I pay attention to. 

After I cut the plug and used my pinpointer to locate the coin, I realized I had dug up an old coin. 

Completely shocked, I looked at the coin and realized I found an 1863 Civil War era Indian Head Penny. 

It’s the oldest coin that I have ever found. Watch the video to learn more!

Hello my name is Matt Ryan and I’ve been metal detecting for almost 3 years. I started metal detecting because I watched different channels and it got me motivated to get out and try to find history. I have many machines that I use but my favorite gear is the Minelab Equinox 800, Garrett Carrot, Whites Digmaster, Whites Ground Hawg Shovel and the Garrett finds bag. My favorite types of hunting are parks and relics- woods- old homesites.
