Yes, a little strange. It was buried in the wood chips at a tot lot, like someone was hiding it from someone else ?I flushed the bearings out with simple green and used ardent reel butter lubricant to the bearings, rusty looking but the bearings works well.
Now it's a matter of returning it back to the lot, above ground, so someone else can re-find it. =))

A tad disappointing, thought it was a new triple coil configuration from 'Spinadisk' - :D ss47

The rain quit long enough to get back out. Nothing good, a Namco game token, not old, 1991.4 wheat pennies, 1936,1939,1940 and one I couldn't get a clear reading on the date 1930 something. Pulled big iron out because they sounded shallow and was for the most part.This was a local baseball field. The fidget spinner found a new home. I left it at a bench at the playground on my way through to get to the field. It was gone when I came back through to leave. I found a shoe eyelet, deep, about 10 " deep with the hot program. It was just a light high squeak for a tone, the other piece looks to be a car trim bit, again small and deep.

I am liking the Deus. There is some history here but not the same type as far as metal detecting goes, likely to never dig. I am thinking of putting my CTX up to trade for another Deus with a 13 x 11" coil to maybe cut the learning curve. I sold my Deleon and Compadre, not sure that was the right thing to do but it's done.

I no longer dig nails like I use to. The Deus likes bottle caps though, Either one, pry cps or twist caps.

Am looking at a used 11x13 coil, I think it's priced right.

I am close to Canada, dig a lot of Canadian pennies, and a couple of new finds since having the Deus.

and sometimes gold. This is the forth 14 k gold ring I've found in 13 months of metal detecting, the first for this year.

Sometimes silver doesn't come out shiny like it does the majority of the time.I found these had a lime or calcium build up on them. The area was very wet, water quickly started pooling in the holes I dug.

I looked it up , 1736-1795 Qing Dynasty cast coin. What in the world was it doing way out here in the sticks ? =))Kids will lose most anything, I wonder at what point their parents noticed that their coin was missing ?

I am learning to like the Deus. This mornings finds included 2 silver quarters which is a rarity for me.

I had an hour to hunt last night.I found the little pendant, it is heavy in weight for being so small. There use to be a lot of vineyards here years ago, grapes were a popular item, seldom see any vineyards in the area now.
