    I have hunted since the 80’s. Back then you just dug the good sounds. Still true today. With the MX5 you can pass some of the junk if you want to. I found if you run the detector slow over multiple targets, it will separate a coin from other stuff. I just watch the numbers and listen to the tones…My house was built in 1938, so the yard is full of stuff. So far I have dug a 1930 Standing Liberty Quarter, the best find so far.

    I have dug silver and clad dimes. And quite a few Lincoln and Wheat pennies. I have a double lot. The house has been removed on the other lot and has two driveways and sidewalks…So I can just go out the door and start hunting… I am in my 60’s so that’s great…Its super exercise. Once I get most of the coins out, I can switch to all metal mode and dig the copper and lead if I want to…The yard is full of it, from the house that was torn down…It looks like the MX5 is going to be fun to use. And is great for the price. It has some fun features to play with, but does not cost $1000.00. Can’t wait to take it to the parks here and see what it does… The pinpointers are a new thing for me also. Something new to try. Looks like they can make for digging smaller plugs and save time etc. Going to pick up a TRX and give it a try…
