Default iron as silver

Yes, iron, or the edges of it as you pass the coil over it can read as silver both in the display and the tone. This seems to be a VAST weakness of modern high end detectors which the engineers cannot seem to overcome.
Every detector I've ever used has this falsing flaw. It is frustrating but until a better system comes along and it doesn't cost you the mortgage on your house to buy, then we do what we have to do.
