I have had a bounty hunter pioneer for years now. Played with it off and on over the years. Up untill now it was for fun because face it its a bounty hunter. So I thought of it as just a bounty hunter. Turns out I was just not in a good spot to find old coins and relics. I asked a friend who lives near old rout 66 if I could detect his yard. He sed if you mow it for me i agreed to and did so. I began detecting first lite the next day. In the front yard I was getting lots of clad pennys and a few dime all in a 4 foot square? weard? A total of three dollers and some cents came from that spot. Once I cleared that change out I started getting faint signals from my detector beaping every once and a while over targets? Turns out the items it was picking up was realy deep> So I slowed down and concetrated my efferts to one targe that was beeping more that the other ones. I dug about 10 inches into the earth and saw my verry first merc dime yep a 1919 merc stared back at me. (heads up) This was the first coin with meaning to me. (Its old)All other things I was going to do that day took the back seat. In all I pulled three mercs the one listed above and a 1945 plain all in great shape and one that was so far gone from rot its a goastly figure of a head. a 1937 plain buffalo a 1954 d franclin half like new and a 1917 brittish penny. Oh lots of wheet pennys ranging from 1912 to 1950. And a realy old small cap gun and some jacks and marbles If thats not enough to get you hooked I dont know what is.I now own three metal detectors another bounty hunter tracker iv I use to detect in the water and a whites classic id to ad to the one above. Im looking forwerd to getting a whites spectra v3i soon. Iv seen video on the net showing its awsom depth ability. since then Iv pulled from a old park here three more mercs and lots more wheets. I think the spectrs v3i would do great in the trashy parks here. Oh thanks for the info on the laws of metal detecting. Thanks for reading my story.
