Breaking the 50 silver coin barrier

I’ve been having surprisingly good luck hunting old parks here lately.  For quite a while I was told old parks were hunted out, not so much so.  Everything I’ve been finding is between 6-9″ deep, I know most people don’t think it’s possible.  It is very possible, but you must learn your machine and figure out how it responds to deeper targets.  As you work your way around detecting watch for deeper targets.  If nails and bottle caps can get 6+ inches deep, so can coins.  Deep coins WILL NOT be dead on the numbers, but they will be close enough to know its a coin.  Yes, I still did nails and other trash, but a whole lot less than I used to.  I hope I’ve encouraged some to stick with hunting older parks and seek out those deeper targets.  On a side note, I dug up an 1862, 10 Centesimi Italian bronze coin. Pretty cool coming from an old park dating to 1911.  I can only believe someone emigrated here bringing the heirloom only to drop it in this park.
