so long as your finding nickle on a steady basis --the gold will come - often larger mens rings "ring up" as nickles ---- smaller womens stuff can come in as pulltabs --and very small gold as foil --- check with gold items to see where they ring up "exactly" on your machine --  Cheesy

Nickels are better than junk!! I would like to find all those nickels though, do you know which one was the oldest that you've found so far?

I was told once that, unless the detector is really tuned properly, you won't find nickels. He said that people are so eager to detect that they don't take the time to fine tune and that each day / location is unique enough to make a difference. I've noticed that, when people list or show coins they've found, that nickels are seldom present.

Hm, that's a year before my parents were born.  The oldest one I found was in change and it was 1939.  1938 is when the Buffalo nickels were last minted.  Nice little find though!!

That's what happens when people discriminate out the tabs and iron! Grin

They walk right over the nickels and rings! :Smiley

Hm, I've been trying to look for rings a few times and maybe that's why I couldn't probably find some.  I had nickel on, but had iron discriminated.  I suppose I should let iron stay on and see what comes up. Grin
