The object was an old square nail at depth of 8 inches. These very often give false non-ferrous signals which are detected typically away from the pinpointed object.
I also demonstrated the constant non-ferrous tone the pro-find 35 gives using my brass towel clip.

Minelab Pro-find 35, Garrett Pro Pointer AT, Nokta Waterproof Pointer.
ALL THE GEAR, NO IDEA!

It seems quite reliable in distinguishing between the two, but the pointer needs to be almost touching the target before it'll register as non-ferrous, so you might as well have a look anyway. I wrongly assumed before purchasing, that it would register as ferrous/non-ferrous from further away.
