I'd be happy with a pine tree... but the oak is even better !

the only problem with this coin is there was no silver happy dance it was more like gab your gear and run for the truck. i wonder how other detectorist reacted when they found thier pine/oak tree coins

Great find - I just want to mention that Garrett is soliciting stories of finds in their newsletter. You should write it up and submit it to them. Probably details at their website. I think they give merchandise for good find stories. You should get one of those new pinpointers at least for this one.

Update - website says no remuneration given for stories, but I remember that the last newsletter did offer a gift of merchandise for stories that are printed.

That's killer! I haven't ever used my 9X12 coil, maybe I should get it out of the bag (although, not gonna find that one here in El Paso).

How hard is it to pinpoint with the 9X12?

you have to dig a little larger plug, pin pointing is not as good as the 6x9.
