Nice finds Shari!!!
Today here in the USA, DEEP in the woods I found a Swedish "5 ORE" coin from 1884. We mostly find US coins here. A Swedish coin was odd in the woods here.
It is a Bronze coin...

Another questions. Can you explain me in simple words - what changes when I change the target ID depth? Only depth level that device display or really depth?

And what do you think about DI 2 and DI 4 search modes? I never used it before, but will try.

Gain. What level do you use? I use 80-85, but MD to noisy sometimes.

Sorry for broken English

Your first question,,it affects target ID reliability.

DI2 and DI4 both good modes for depth, and higher gain with these can make them noisy depending on area. Especially gain levels 95 plus.

In a heavy emi environment,,a good approach some times is use DI3 and Max the gain to 99... Impact will generally run pretty quiet here even in some bad emi.

Don't forget to try freq offset when your detector gets noisy.
The freq offset on Impact works well.

Frequency shift works great. When that failed for me 1 time, COG mode did the trick also. I think I was hunting over a burnt coal dumping area...

I have this one area, where coal pile used to be,,have dig chinks of it.
Makes all my detectors go bonkers when over.

Somehow, the process of the actual "burning" of the coal, brings out all the trapped iron into a higher concentration. the microscopic particles are melted into a kind of like a glob if you will. When you hit these spots you know it!!

Many of my fields are full of coke, it was used for the steam engines that powered farm machinery back in the day.
The likes of FBS machines don't react much to it, single freq machines love it, some like the Deeptech units have coke buttons to ID it.

Interesting. Most early farm engines here were "Hit and Miss" engines running on gas or kerosene.

That's an old one.
Hard for me to find something that old.

Congrats
