I thought I would experiment this morning by using my Cscope 4pi pulse induction beach detector. I had originally hoped it would allow me to get a lot better depth on this field and I though there was very minimal iron to cause any problems, I was wrong though.
As it turns out that the field has loads of iron signals but i had forgot i had been using the Teknetics eurotek with its iron audio feature switched on so just had not noticed had much iron there actually was. I dug several deep nails at around a foot down and had soon got fed up and made the ten minute walk back to the car to get the other metal detector.
I managed a few nice coins, one being a silver Victorian sixpence and some bottle tops but my detector seems to have developed a fault. It is falsing like crazy and i dug multiple holes that produced no finds. In the end i got so frustrated with it that i had to admit defeat and surrender.
It was still a pleasant couple of hours and more nice coins to add to my collection.
