That looks like the first spinner I have ever seen found with a detector =))

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.

You look like you doing well with the deus I just need out more with my one.

I did fine a quarter dollar 1875 silver and a 3 cent 1859 .

I am in Ireland and could not believe my luck ::g

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 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.

I got my new Deus Monday night and MI-6 pointer.Am having difficulty with mi-6, lost pairing from something I did, removed it and re paired it and now I can't seem to find the sensitivity setting to turn it down as I set it at 50.

I built a new program to achieve more depth. It hits quarters hard but also twist caps which is always a problem with the Deus. Twist caps and pry bottle caps but the steel pry caps will sound iron from a good tone break once you wiggle the coil off from the target, it breaks to tell tale iron sign. The twist cap is in the same range as the gold rings I have found, so I continually dig them up for fear of missing a possible ring which is not really a great possibility but it is always nice when it happens. I 'm not sure it is so great for depth accomplishment but one thing I noticed with lower reactivity /silencer, more little targets are appearing. A lot of electrical connector and deep depth little bits are signaling that I normally didn't hear. I had two targets one showing a flat line 91-93 and the second a flat line showing 94-95.I dug down 14" and hit coke in the bottom of the hole so I couldn't retrieve it but coke signals comes in straight up and down on the xy screen, this target was coming in straight left to right like a coin does and the line grew a bit and the signal got better as I opened the ground up.I dug and old pin close to 12" in depth.Itwas painted but looks to be silver.the head is missing from it and the pin backing was found several inches from it in the ground.Maybe frost pushed it apart from being in the ground for so long, I don't know.

back at it today.Nothing great. A 1944 war penny made from recycled artillery shells, about as excited as it can get here for finds other than silver or gold.

I am turning in my clad tomorrow. I cleaned the m up, did the pennies last and was tired of trying to get them really clean . They should be good enough to go through. This is the forth batch this year and the smallest of the batches. My spots are finally getting cleaned out. I need to quit stalling and look into new areas.

Ive used the sprite program today. A nice Quiet program. I changed it to full tones and reactivity to 2.5, trying to take advantage of the 4.0 capability. I found a rare find for me that is. A Susan B Anthony coin. Susan B Anthony was a women's rights activist that devoted her life to organizing and leading the woman's suffrage movement. She died in 1906, in Rochester, NY , about 90 miles from where I found this coin. I had a great day for coins once it quit raining so I could get out.

Yes, It's close to home, 6 minutes away and no one else likes to hunt it because there is too much trash in the ground. Using full tones is being able to swindle the competition while detecting in the trashy environment . I think you will hear more non ferrous items closer to iron than running any other tone. I'm at a different direction this morning, it looks like rain again. It rained most of the night here last night and we just had a downpour with hail mixed in but very short lived. Everything is looking as a possible washout so I 've got to get before the next wave of rain sweeps through.

Am finding that silencer and audio response settings seem most important when looking for targets where you have already searched the location many times prior.I've been turning my silencer down to -1 or 0 and audio response up to 5 or 6 and use the horse shoe screen more than the X Y screen to determine depth of targets. Also reactivity 2.5 or 2 is better to bring weaker sounding signals that you hear on reactivity 3.Here, a disc setting of 1 will knock out the some of the back ground chatter but still allows you to hear iron signals.-6 picks up iron ore bits here, will dig deep to retrieve pieces of magnetic rock, unfortunately they are never a meteorite. I'm trying to sort out a photo image program to upload pictures from as I feel I shouldn't be using the forums uploading capability, my finds are insignificant compared to those who have better Historical items to post.
Photobucket wants a stiff fee to post third party pictures here now. Photobucket charges $399.99 a year to host third party capability. That seems a little crazy, darn near a HF coil price here, would rather have a HF coil than a photobucket subscription. =))

My finds today with the Deus. Unexpected broken arrowhead , due to the metal pointed thingy that was next to the arrowhead in the ground. Another silver Mercury dime which is always nice to find. A lot of iron targets so I dug a few to see what they were hoping something good would turn up but that was a flop.

Strange price that :-O just hate the adverts on postimage websites.. but like anything in life free things do come at cost B-)

Just seen your arrow head nice ::g but the adverts put me off looking at others I'm afraid :(
Thank you. I don't see any adverts when previewing the image. I'll have to look for another source. Thank you.
