XT70 and a silver quarter

Got out with the XT70 today, the more I use this machine the more impressed I become, the target separation is extremely good.

The quarter, a 1946-D, was found between to pull tabs, the bent penny, a wheat penny, was found next to an iron target.

xterra70 and a gold ring ?

Out for 4 hours today, playing with the xterra70 I got from Chuck at Treasure Hut.

I am still on a huge learning curve. Today I was concentrating on solid repeatable signals and pinpointing.

Pull tabs were hitting a solid 18 on TID, however, this ring also hit a solid 18, the main difference between the two is the pull tabs had a bouncing TID in the pinpoint mode, the ring was varying very little.

The ring is unmarked and feels a bit light, so my guess is gold plated.
