Default Hello everyone

I got a detector when I was in grade school, I found some old relics, pocket watches, harmonicas, ect. I'll never forget finding all kinds of weird stuff in the woods as a kid.

A few years ago, I started watching youtube videos of guys pulling jewelry and coins from the ground. I started up again shortly after that, eventually saving enough for my AT Pro.

I've been lucky enough to find a few worthwhile relics, and I seem to be getting better at this stuff with time. I like my AT Pro, and I'm planning on moving to beach hunting in the near future once I get a pulse induction machine.

I joined here to log my finds, get tips from others, and (hopefully) find some gold rings and Spanish coins

Hello everyone.
