I DECIDED TO USE NOTHING BUT MY COINMASTER IN 2013.I WAS RELIC HUNTING AROUND SOME EARLY HOME SITES AND DIGGING SOME GREAT STUFF WITH THE HELP OF THE COINMASTER.  I FOUND MANY FLAT BUTTONS AND BUCKLES, A 1856 ORNATE SASH BUCKLE,  POCKET WATCH CASES, EARLY TOOLS AND ECT. THE LAST DAY OF 2013 I DECIDED TO HUNT A EARLY HOME SPOT WERE I HAD FOUND THE SASH BUCKLE. I WORKED THE AREA FOR ABOUT 30 MIN. AND DECIDED TO SLIP MY COIL IN A PATCH OF BRIARS I HAD BYPASSED BEFORE. I GOT A GREAT SIGNAL ONLY 2'' DOWN, DUG A SMALL PLUG AND OUT POPS MY FIRST COLONIAL COIN. A 1700'S KING GEORGE HALF CENT!!!
