Another run with the Deus
« on: August 30, 2016, 18:40 »
Yesterday I put in a couple of hours at an old house site that is now in a pine plantation. I tried a few different programs and was happy to come away with a coin as the site has been detected before. It was only a 1879 penny in poor condition, still waiting for my first English silver. The pines had been thinned so it wasn't very good for swinging a coil due the trash on the ground but I managed to winkle some non ferrous targets from amongst all the ferrous rubbish. There was even a glint of some kind of gold at one stage, a part of a pocket watch mechanism, pity it wasn't the whole thing. I think the end from a cane was another object found and the handle of a spoon or fork with a nail rusted to it.

A big part of detecting is being in the right place - in your head and at the site.

The watch back looks like it would have belonged to something fancy in its day. Pine plantations are hard work and sometimes only the large signals show through. We sometimes find mineshafts covered with debri but still a lurking shaft underneath.
