However, two block down the street from my home address is a small park that has been there since the Mid 70's. It has a playground for kids with Swings and Slides plus a covered pavillion with a grill. I guess over the years many people have been the this park and dropped coins plus other things. The photo below is what I been able to detect with my new M6 on 4 Outtings now at the park.
The Hair piece and the eagle at the top of the photo is silver. The hairpiece has 3 black onyx stones down the middle and of course its design is a butterfly. The rest of the coins were found around the pavillion and the playground area at the park. I've found nothing extremely valuable at this time but how knows what the next beep will bring. Thanks for the service.
When you're serious about gold hunting with metal detectors, you soon come to realize that all metal detector manufacturers have found that standard metal detectors cannot do well searching for gold nuggets. If you do not have a metal detector designed expressly for hunting gold nuggets and gold veins you will probably not be successful and definitely be disappointed in the results of your hunt.
Relic metal detectors are required to search for relics of all sizes and shapes. Many relics are not complete and present unique detecting requirements to recover relics and artifacts as small as a minie ball only a few inches in the ground to a large cannonball 5 to 6 feet in the ground. The recommended relic must have excellent audio response signal able to indicate shallow and deep targets. Automatic ground balance is necessary. The metal detector must be able to accept both large and small search coils depending on the ground conditions and terrain.
