hi Eagle
the simple answer is all over the place
depending on size depth angle in the ground etc
hammies will show up on most machines from as low as foil, just diggable- upwards
a good hammy near the top ,flat will register like a top of a coke can.
until you dig it you wont know its a hammy.

I agree with nige, depends on size and orientation of the coin.

Before upgrading I found a few hammys with the Ace 250, but no idea now what they showed as.

I agree with previous posters that they can show as more or less any thing on any machine. I have a Racer 2 and most have been signals that have jumped around a fair bit and been iffy "do I or don't I dig" signals. Speaking a bit back to a couple of other detectorists (with different machines) about this and they agreed.

My rule with the 250 was any thing above the 3rd segment I always dug even if target ID was bouncing around. Depended what mood I was in regarding the 3rd segment as normally iron but just once in a while might be something a bit better. Always ignored the first 2 segments as alwasy iron.
