Welcome. Yes you can find stuff with your detector. Start with your own yard. Then try school yards, parks, and in general, anywhere people have been. The older the better. Learn how to pinpoint and dig as small a hole as necessary to recover the item. Fill all holes so it looks as if no one was there. Practice makes perfect. Don't get discouraged as coins will come. Good luck goes hand in hand with the skill of the operator.

Chris, Your detector will find stuff as long as it works ok.
Your own yard is where you should start. Now it's been a while, but don't you have a ferry landing off Highway 1 in Lincolnville?
That area around the landing has had a lot of people going through over the years. They must have dropped something worth finding. and all those old homes up around there. Heck you will have a good time Make sure you get permission before you dig anywhere...........Happy hunting and welcome to the hobby......Gil
