Default Surprise on short hunt

Hit an old trailer park on main street and had a nice surprise when sorting finds at home. A super nice 1899 Indian head !,
First nice find with the new ATP sport, love that little coil.
I like the machine but find the balance horrible, I see an Anderson straight shaft in the near future or a Garret gizmo if I can find one.

Very nice! Haven't dug up an IHP but it's on my wish list!

Congrats on a very fine looking Indian. Your soil looks to be very kind to the coins. Trapper

I like the shaft mod but hear that some are no good with larger coils.
I swing the 5x8 on my ATP but am looking at getting a 14 or 15"

Happy hunting
