Talking AT Pro Finds another eye popper for me

Hello Metal Detecting folks just wanted to share another bucket lister I scored while detecting an old high school football field, 8 grams of 18K 750 24inch chain with a cool pendent of a dragon. Would say my best score!! Woo Hoo

The signal came in as a solid 48 on the Good old AT Pro, was about 3-4 inches deep!

Surprised the chain is still intact since it was semi deep. 18k real fragile and break easily

When I first dug the plug I looked down and seen the pendent and grabbed it and pulled on it, but it wouldn't move so then realized the chain was stretched out so I dug a trench the length of the chain and got it out without breaking it.

One of the main strengths of the AtPro is it will hit chains! And Buddy, you got yourself a Beauty!

That will raise the heart rate of any coil swinger. If it doesn't he or she is dead.
