Metal Detector Treasure Finds, Pictures and Stories
Whites and Super 12 Searchcoil Finds Treasure Others Leave Behind
Although I've been detecting a long time and owned lots of metal detectors, I had never owned a DFX. When it arrived last week from JW at Kellyco, I read the manual, watched the DVD and re-read the manual. I have been using the Super 12 coil quite a bit on my MXT and decided that was the coil for the DFX's "maiden voyage". I took the detector out to my coin garden and familiarized myself with the settings and the sounds. I immediately noticed how the audio tone of the DFX reminded me of my XL Pro. Wide and distinct!
Running out of sunlight, I decided to take the DFX/Super 12 combo to the neighbor lady's yard for a quick hunt. Now I have hunted this same back yard with about every detector / coil combination there is. And, I realize that we don't ever "get them all". But you can imagine my surprise when, working around the clothes line, I got a solid audio signal with a TID of 92. At a depth of a bit over 6-inches, I pulled out a beautiful Franklin half. I know that 1952 is not an old coin. And it has very little collector value. But finding a silver half in a yard that I have hunted dozens of times is something I didn't expect. I'm looking forward to going back over the places I've hunted in the past. HH Randy
